Not currently accepting new clients.
Becoming a physiotherapist was a natural choice for Amanda due to the fields’ emphasis on empowering clients to take the lead in their rehabilitation. She truly believes that by giving clients the tools required, they can work together on meeting rehabilitation goals and prevent future injuries.
Since graduating, Amanda has become certified in advanced manual therapy, dry needling/intramuscular stimulation (IMS), acupuncture, soft tissue release, and vestibular and concussion rehabilitation. In the community, Amanda is the lead physiotherapist with the Vancouver All Stars athletes, speaks at local fitness and retails centres and does consulting work for Barre Fitness at their various locations.
Coming from an athletic background as a former competitive dancer and Team Canada cheerleader, Amanda finds it very exciting to work with athletes of similar backgrounds. As she is no longer competing, Amanda has branched off to other forms of physical activity to maintain an active lifestyle. She enjoys weight training, running half marathons, practicing yoga and has started the transition from spinning to road biking. During her time off, Amanda is an avid traveler. Amanda also enjoys staying active, cooking, baking, and visiting Vancouver’s culinary hot spots.
