I have been a Physiotherapist for over twenty years and a Nutritionist for more than ten years. I have a passion for an integrated approach that includes not only treating a medical condition, but improving upon the whole life of the person. I have constantly sort to diversify the variety of therapies at my disposal by not only expanding upon my knowledge in Physiotherapy and Nutrition, but also incoporating Scenar Therapy, Stress and Lifestyle Management and other skill sets into the therapies and treatments that I provide.
My present interest lies in the use of simple cost effective technologies such as web, tablet and phone apps to progress patient treatment in between therapy sessions. These, combined with more traditional aids such as written educational materials provide an important support for the treatments that I provide.
