Physiotherapist

 

RPT (Registered Physiotherapist)

BScPT (Hons.) (Bachelor of Science Degree in Physical Therapy)

 

 

After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Physiotherapy in the Philippines in 2011, I immediately worked as a full-time teaching faculty member for the Physical Therapy program at the University of the Philippines. Alongside my academic workload, I served as a clinical supervisor and preceptor for different sections of the University-based rehabilitation clinics, and attended to home-based patients when I was not in the classroom, clinic or lab.

I worked closely with families of children with diverse developmental disabilities and adults with neurological injuries (such as stroke, MS, and Parkinson’s disease.

Through close collaboration with physicians, occupational and speech therapists in the clinic, I practiced with passion for achieving the overall functional goals of the different individuals that I encountered every day.

Prior to moving to Ontario, I worked as a Physiotherapist in a busy private clinic in Calgary. This provided me the opportunity to enhance my skills in Orthopaedic and manual treatment approaches, as I saw patients with different occupational, motor vehicle and sports injuries. Presently, I am keen on pursuing further education and experience in mechanical diagnosis and treatment of the spine.

So far in my career, I’ve been immersed in and developed strong interests in Neurological, Paediatric and Orthopaedic physical therapy – diverse fields of practice that offer different challenges but are all equally fulfilling. I am passionate not just about patient care, but in teaching new clinicians, students, patients and communities as well.

R.Ac (Registered Acupuncturist)

RN (Bachelor of Science in Nursing)

I have been working in the medical profession for over 12 years, starting my career as a Registered Nurse in the Emergency Room. I then operated health clinics in remote communities to working as an RN in high level trauma centres. After my own personal experiences with a neck injury, my last ditch effort for relief came from Eastern Medicine and acupuncture. After experiencing acupuncture’s effectiveness first hand, I then spent the next three years studying every style of acupuncture I could get my hands on.

When I embarked on a career in acupuncture, one thing I took with me to is the concept that health and function are inherently multidimensional. When treating sports related injuries to chronic pain, I not only look at the pain itself but also other factors that may be contributing to the issue. My four foundations of health include: sleep, digestion, stress and nutrition. When these foundations of health are in balance, recovery from injury will improve, surgery rehab times are reduced and overall performance can be drastically enhanced.

I incorporate an evidence-based medicine while using TCM (Eastern) style acupuncture, motor points (contemporary acupuncture), dry needling while incorporating cupping and guasha to enhance treatments.

Improving our health and wellness is fundamentally connected to our efforts in seeking out relief. It is the partnerships that we establish along the way that strengthen and guide us to putting our best foot forward.
