Robbie de Fleuriot was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa. He lived there with his parents and 4 siblings until they immigrated to Langley, BC in 2001. After finishing High School at Walnut Grove Secondary Robbie went on to attend Trinity Western University. He graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor in Kinesiology. It was at TWU that he met his wife Laura.
Laura, a native to Chilliwack BC, went to high school in Abbotsford and later attended TWU for her teaching certification. After getting married, Robbie and Laura moved to Calgary, Alberta where he worked as a kinesiologist. He then completed his Master's of Science in Physical Therapy from the University of Alberta.
Before returning to the lower mainland, Robbie worked in a multidisciplinary physiotherapy clinic in Airdrie, at the Talisman Centre in downtown Calgary, and in post operative knee screening with the Banff Sports Medicine Surgical team.
The opportunity to explore opening a clinic and bring physiotherapy back to Fort Langley came in early 2016. Robbie, Laura, and their family relocated to Langley in the summer of 2016 to complete preparations for the clinic. The clinic opened in the Fort Professional Building on September 19th, 2016.
Robbie is overjoyed to see his dream realized in creating a beautiful, inviting, functional, and professional physiotherapy clinic. His desire goes beyond helping clients attain their functional goals or conquer pain but just as importantly to get to know them as people. He believes this is the key to being able to offer personalized, thoughtful care that is hands on and interactive. We'd love to meet you and get to know your story.

Robbie, a proud graduate of Trinity Western University, completed his Masters of Science in Physical Therapy from the University of Alberta . He utilizes a number of approaches in his physiotherapy practice in an attempt to meet each of his clients individual needs including; manual therapy, exercise prescription, functional dry needling (IMS) and other therapeutic modalities. Robbie is hands on and works at empowering his clients to take an active approach to their treatment and ongoing health and believes in taking a holistic approach to one’s rehabilitation.
Robbie hopes to offer each of his clients’ personable, genuine, and sincere care. He is a strong believer in smiling and believes that positivity is contagious. His favorite part of his practice is getting to know each of his client’s on a personal basis.
Robbie loves his wife Laura, daughter Maggie, the sun and sport. From cricket, soccer, golf, hockey, snowboarding, cross country skiing, curling, to Frisbee…He loves it all! He is an avid Manchester United Fan and is dreaming of the day South Africa brings home a cricket World Cup!
Blake also graduated from the University of Alberta with a Master’s in Science of Physical Therapy. Prior to his time in Alberta, he completed his BSC from the University of Victoria. Keen on manual treatment and exercise prescription, Blake takes a hands-on approach – his gears grind at passive methods!
Aiming to identify what it is that is limiting his patients, whether that be walking or returning to sport, Blake believes that a tailored plan and manual therapy are absolutely key to producing meaningful results. This means checking in with them regularly and being focused on connecting with the patient beyond their injury. Tangible results are the best moment of being a physio for Blake – that immediate reaction and then working through it and building on it in a way that is sincere and purposeful.
Outside the world of physio, Blake is active in all kinds of activities – hiking, biking, snowboarding, swimming and water sports. If you ask him, he might even play a game of spike-ball or two with you! (If you don’t know what it is, just Google it!)
Kevin, the newest physio in our clinic, recently completed his Masters of Physical Therapy at the University of British Columbia. He also graduated from Trinity Western University in Langley prior to his time in Vancouver. Kevin’s approach to physio is simple: he values manual and exercise-based therapy.
Promoting an active technique, he wants you, the client, to be involved with recovery – that could be something as easy as asking for your input during treatment or teaching you the steps and skills required to further self-care. Kevin believes that empowering his patients is key and considers a personal connection with his clients to be one of the best parts of the job. His biggest passion is helping you to feel confident in your own body despite injury, and wants to see you back to regular functionality.
No stranger to sport, Kevin grew up playing soccer in his hometown of Taber, Alberta, and in his free time he tends to gravitate towards any sport involving a ball (with the odd hike and rock-climbing adventure here and there). Like Blake, he also enjoys a good game of spike-ball. Who knows, maybe a tournament is in the near future!
