Steph’s love for exercise and human movement began at a young age. She competed in elite level competitive gymnastics throughout her adolescence and this ultimately sparked her interest in pursuing physiotherapy as a career. After studying kinesiology at SFU, she went onto completing her masters in science of physiotherapy at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario.
Steph continues to educate herself and does her best to deliver up-to-date evidence based treatment. She has taken courses in shoulder rehabilitation, persistent pain, acupuncture, functional dry needling, cervical and thoracic pain disorders, lower back disorders, just to name a few.
Pain is a very personal experience and requires a holistic approach to treat. Steph prides herself in taking an active role in your recovery by taking the time to listen to your whole story, working from the heart, and does her best to reignite hope and optimism.
Steph refers to herself as a “movement guide” or “teammate” in that she will not necessarily “fix” your issues, but provide you the encouragement and education to empower you to help yourself. Through active listening, education and exercise, Steph will help you get back to doing what you love with a lot of fun and laughs along the way. What’s important to you is what is important to her.
If you think you have to end your pain before you live your life, then let’s work together and discover what is truly possible!
