Physiotherapy & Wellness
I graduated from Wits with a BSc in Physiotherapy in 2004, completed 1 year of Community Service at Pretoria Academic Hospital, and then went to work in Private Practice at Northgate Physiotherapy Practice with Erica Wagner who taught me so much and helped shape the therapist that I am today.
In March 2007 I moved to Maputo, Mozambique, to open my own private practice, as one of the very few qualified Physiotherapist's in the country. As an adjunct I also ran a fitness studio and offered Core, Active Stretching, Oriental Dancing, Zumba and Rebounding classes.
I have completed various courses over the years including Incontinence, Advanced Dry Needling, Sacro Iliac Dysfunction, Spinal Manipulation, Explain Pain, Introduction to NLP, Functional Neuromuscular Rehabilitation, Taping Techniques,and Active Isolated Stretching to name a few.
I received a Mastery Certification in Manual Therapy (MCMT) in 2010.
In March 2017 I participated in the first POLD course in South Africa.
I love the work that I do. Being able to help people with their pain and limitations is challenging but rewarding. I cannot imagine myself doing any other type of work.
My Treatment Philosophy
In my practice each patient is an individual with specific needs. There are no recipes for treatments.
Each person is assessed holistically, considering the physical and emotional issues, problems and limitations.
I use education, massage therapy, cognitive relaxation and other techniques to relieve and treat pain, reduce stress and restore well-being.
