Michelle has worked in the private sector in NZ and London for over 30 years as a Physiotherapist and for the last 20 years as a Rehabilitative Pilates instructor. She has a passion for helping people to achieve optimal body function, movement and postures.
She feels it is vital for people to take responsibility for their own bodies by being taught awareness of the way they position themselves and move throughout the day and thus making their everyday activities their ‘gym program’.
Most people want more than symptomatic relief of their symptoms and don’t want to have problems reoccur down the track. Michelle enjoys the challenge of low back problems and lower limb injuries particularly but is also able to apply her experience and knowledge to most causes of musculoskeletal dysfunction and pain in the body.
Michelle works with a holistic approach and includes work on relaxation, de stressing and breathing as part of her teaching tools.
