Physiotherapist and Acupuncture
It’s been more than 30 years since Kathy began her career in physiotherapy after being formally educated at the University of Alberta. Seeing clients heal remains the most satisfying part of her work: “It’s always great when someone’s quality of life gets better because of an intervention.”
Over the years, Kathy has treated a long list of health conditions — from sports injuries and soft tissue damage from car accidents, to post-surgical issues and everyday aches and pains. She carefully assesses each and every client to understand both the nature of their injury and how it impacts their life: “I definitely believe you have to treat the whole person.” Kathy describes her approach to care as collaborative, encouraging her clients to take an active role in their own recovery.
Kathy believes in life-long education and building on her knowledge and skills to help clients. She’s received advanced training in many aspects of physiotherapy, including: orthopedic assessment and treatment, TMJ disorders, myofascial release, and kinesiotaping. Kathy also studied acupuncture under the world-renowned Dr. Steven Aung and often combines both traditional physiotherapy techniques with acupuncture: “Acupuncture allows me to approach the same problem from a different perspective, which benefits many of my clients.”
