"I believe in holistic and comprehensive physiotherapy treatment programs. You will receive one-to-one direct care. Each appointment is booked for one hour with no interruptions or other patients present.
The aim being to educate you about your condition, provide full hands on treatment and tools for you to self-manage any recurrences or manage chronic health issues. I want to maximize your function with the restoration of motion, strength and stability in spite of your condition or disability.
I get you there, you maintain yourself"

Rheumatoid arthritis, SLE, etc. I have been very fortunate to work with some amazing specialists and being on the cutting edge of managing such conditions. Therefore, I can help you learn how to better manage your condition with the use of appropriate physiotherapy treatment to allow you to understand when and if you should be active, and when you should rest and when you should get back to leading as normal a life as possible.
Why wait until you have an injury. I can help you understand what causes injuries and what you need to do to prevent them. This can be for anyone at any age. It can range from top athletes to people who just enjoy activities or daily function without causing themselves a problem. I have had experience in preventing injuries in students participating in swimming, skating, ice hockey as well as more mature individuals playing golf, skiing and other recreational past times. I can do this on an individual or group basis. As this is a pro-active intervention, I am happy to work with you to help anyone or everyone in this endeavour.
This is not just physical well-being. I have experience in assisting individuals who want to be pro-active. I will help you manage all the aspects of wellness: physical, psychological, spiritual, emotional aspects of well-being. I have helped individuals who are fit and well to maintain that status to those who are struggling with some health issues, to maintain and improve their overall wellness.
Women’s health and wellness
Women’s bodies vary greatly from those of men. The beauty and strength of the female body should be embraced and the pathways the body has to go through can be enhanced and supported with the use of physiotherapy. I can help the teenagers in their growth and development as well as helping on the other end of the spectrum in the management and prevention of female conditions like osteoporosis. I can assist women in their promotion of the development of a new life - from conception to post-natal stages, I have experience in supporting and enhancing women’s ability to progress successfully through these amazing stages in a woman’s life.
