About Us

Our Story

Ed has been a Massage Therapist for most of his life, though he didn’t always know it. What started out as a desire to assist people to lead healthy, active lives has become a 21-year career.

It all started back in 1995 when Edward Tonus (Massage Therapist and Owner of Active Healing Centre) began his career. During that time, he gained valuable knowledge and experience. This experience would later yield a passion for an ambitious future.

After a decade working for other health practitioners, Ed fulfilled his dream of opening his own clinic in 2008.

Active Healing Centre, in the The Beaches neighbourhood of East Toronto, has become a well-respected centre for healing and health care, and has received multiple awards. In 2015, Ed was recognized as one of the Top Ten Massage Therapists in Toronto.

The therapists at Active Healing Centre have been carefully selected, are patient-focussed, and are continually incorporating new techniques and treatments that enhance a patient’s health and well-being.

Each treatment is unique and designed specifically for the patient. It’s what makes us stand out from the rest. We focus on your total health, and provide services and information to make you feel energized, healthy, and free of pain.

If you’re looking for a clinic committed to helping you achieve your very best, you’ve found it! Why not come in for a treatment, and see for yourself why our patients value our therapies.

We could continue but why not come in and see for yourself.
