Once upon a time, when I was 12 years old and competing as a provincial-level gymnast, I broke both arms from a fall off the uneven bars. Gymnastics was my life at the time, and I had to endure a gruelling recovery to get back to the sport I loved.
Physiotherapy was naturally a huge part of my life for a while and is almost wholly responsible for the full recovery I was able to make. At some point amidst all the physio appointments, I realized that I too wanted to help people get back to the things they loved, just the way my physiotherapist helped me.
Today, I help clients with general orthopedics, pelvic floor conditions, post-concussion syndrome, and post-surgery complications like ACL reconstruction and fracture recovery. I can relate to what my clients are going through since I had to endure it all myself all those years ago.
As a busy mom of two young children, I can also empathize with the numerous demands placed on new moms. Aside from helping moms with the complications preceding and following childbirth, I’m passionate about helping new mothers strike a balance between taking care of themselves and taking care of their kids.
Whether my client is coming to me for a concussion, a pelvic floor condition, or something else, I’m always amazed by how well the human body can respond to adversity, given the proper program, a little hard work, and the right mindset.
My passion for understanding how the human body moves started when I was a child athlete. Today, that passion fuels my work as a physiotherapist and my mission to help my clients make the most of their bodies.
Many of my clients have awkward body mechanics and often complain of pains they’ve carried around with them for years or even decades. I’m dedicated to showing my clients how they can manage their pain so that they can live better lives. I believe that no one should be constrained by their physical limitations.
Today, I love providing customized fitness programs to my clients to bridge the gap between where they are and where they’d like to be. I especially enjoy using a combination of manual therapy and exercise programs to help my clients get stronger.
I believe life is about enjoying the journey but also looking forward to the destination.
