Some people are all about the details. That’s Andrea. Whether she’s hanging artwork, staging a photo, or treating a patient, Andrea makes sure things are exactly as they should be. She’s a great listener and is tremendously thorough. Wonderful traits in a physiotherapist. She seeks first to understand why a client’s symptoms have developed in the first place so she can ultimately identify and successfully treat the root of the problem.
In 2004, Andrea—awarded the prestigious Mary Orti Memorial—graduated with honours from the physical therapy program at Queen’s University and has been working in private practice ever since. An eternal student at heart, she is always looking to add to her “toolbox,” developing and expanding on her existing skillset and repertoire of hands-on techniques. In 2008, she completed a Certificate of Anatomical Acupuncture from the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute, and, throughout 2010 and 2011, participated in the Discover Physio Series’ course “Integrated Systems Model” – now known as Connect Therapy TM and Thoracic Ring Approach TM. Currently, she is working on her certification in Visceral Manipulation through the Barral Institute. By integrating all the different techniques, concepts and approaches she picks up on her journey of lifelong learning, Andrea is better able to effectively treat her patients holistically. Restoring total body function in others … nothing much makes Andrea happier than that.
Living a healthy, active, balanced lifestyle is a priority for Andrea. She enjoys, often simultaneously, cooking and conversations with great people. Running, yoga and, in particular, dancing (still going strong since she was introduced to it at the age of three!) fill her days outside of work. She holds a teaching certificate through the British Association of Teachers of Dancing, but spends more time these days healing dancers than teaching them.
She is thrilled to be part of the dynamic multi-disciplinary team at Revive Whole Body Health.
