Physiotherapy is a science based profession and takes a “whole person” approach to health and well being. Physiotherapy help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement, exercise, manual therapy, education and advice. The physiotherapist can help maintain optimal health for all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent deterioration in muscle weakness due to lack of mobility. Physiotherapy helps to encourage developing and facilitate recovery, enabling people to remain independent.
I was trained as a physiotherapist at State University of New York- Downstate Medical Center and received my Master’s Degree at Long Island University two years later in the Musculoskeletal System. I have continued to pursue further trainings in various specialities relating to the fields of Neurology and Paediatric, gaining my Neuro-Developmental Technique based on the Bobath Method fworking with neurologically impaired children. Completed my 4 year Feldenkrais training to become a Feldenkrais Practitioner and further continue to Advanced trainings. Currently I am doing a Post-Grad study ‘Working With Children” with Nancy Aberle and Lynn Bullock who are ABM Practitioners taught by Anat Baniel. To further develop my interests in the human movement and health I was able to achieve certification in Tai Chi for Health, Dr Paul Lam and in Acupuncture certified by the AACP, Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapist.
