Michelle brings to the table a high level of expertise, with over 12 years of experience in Physiotherapy. She is passionate about getting to the root of an injury, taking into consideration the patient as a whole. Having previously worked in Ontario and Manitoba under the mentorship of various well-respected Manual Therapy Physiotherapists and Instructors, she brings to the table a wide array of ideas, approaches and insight. She uses a combination of acupuncture, dry needling, exercise, manual therapy and education in every treatment to get you to your goals.
Michelle has always been intrigued by the complexities of the human body, anatomy, and movement related function and dysfunction. This interest, combined with Michelle’s involvement in fitness, weight-lifting and a variety of sports, made a career in physiotherapy a natural fit. Her desire is to work hand-in-hand with you and your own personal goals to not only decrease pain, but help you return to your desired level of function (whatever that means to you!).
