What I do around here:
I help my patients get better through manual therapy and therapeutic exercises. I find the root cause of my patients’ pain or dysfunction and treat it. Aside from that , I work with my patients on maintaining a healthy life style and preventing injuries through increased body awareness and recognition of the body’s warning signs. My goal is to get my patients doing the things they love- painfree!
I became a Physiotherapist because:
I became a physiotherapist after a close family member was injured and began physiotherapy treatments. At the time , I had never been to a physiotherapy clinic and had no idea what it was they did there ! I always had an interest in the human body and how it worked and so after accompanying my family member multiple times for treatment and seeing significant results , I realised this job was for me. There is nothing more satisfying than being able to help someone get better!
My personal philosophy is:
I believe that the human body has the ability to heal- given the correct instructions and cues. This is why I value education and one-on-one , client-focused treatments.
What I do for fun:
Though I no longer do martial arts , I try to remain as active as I can. I love kayaking, downhill skiing, and of course being at the gym. Other than that , I’m an avid language learner . I currently speak French, Arabic , Spanish , and I’m working on my Turkish and German.
