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)
I graduated from the Acupuncture program at Eight Branches Academy of Eastern Medicine in 2016 and am a registered member of the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (CTCMPAO). I am clinically trained in both Chinese and Japanese acupuncture and moxibustion techniques as well as cupping, Guasha, Tuina and Electro-Acupuncture to help ease pain of musculoskeletal disorders, and myofascial release.
I am a passionate practitioner, who believes patient education and self-care regarding lifestyle, diet, and stress management integrated with a variety of Chinese medicine modalities is essential for the treatment of chronic and acute pain, and preventative care.
Prior to studying acupuncture, I received a diploma in Social Service Work and spent over six years living in China. It was there, where I experienced the long-term benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine first hand. I knew then, that I wanted to dedicate my time to helping people achieve balance and well-being through this holistic approach to healing local and systemic issues.
I regularly continue to strengthen my knowledge and skills as a practitioner through continuing education workshops related to body work, and practicing gentler and effective needling techniques to provide my patients with an effective and comfortable treatment experience.
