meet our physiotherapist
Physiotherapy & Acupuncture
I trained as a physio in the UK, graduating from physio school in a specialist orthopaedic hospital in 1993 and have spent my whole career developing my treatment skills through extensive post-grad training in many physiotherapy techniques, giving me a very broad range of tools to use.
No two patients are the same; my training and over 2 decades of experience have given me a set of skills to apply to any situation and as a result, I am able to help the vast majority of patients I see. If I can’t help you, I probably know someone who can!
Our bodies have an amazing capacity to self-heal – I see my role as providing optimum conditions for that to take place, through hands-on treatments, acupuncture, intramuscular stimulation (IMS) and exercise, as well as moral support and encouragement for the journey back to optimal health and fitness.
I want you to get well and stay well by addressing the root cause of your problem, rather than just treating your symptoms. Your treatment with me will be multi-faceted, including hands-on physiotherapy to release soft tissue tightness and mobilize stiff joints, exercise to gain stability, strength and flexibility and acupuncture or IMS, if required, to relieve pain and improve circulation, dealing with all of the structures responsible for your pain.
I moved to Vernon in 2012 and am thoroughly enjoying life in the beautiful Okanagan. I have met and worked with many amazing people and genuinely believe that we live in a very special place where health and wellness takes the priority it deserves.
