Osteopath, Western Medical Acupuncturist & Rehab/Studio Pilates Instructor
Rebecca is an experienced Osteopath and Pilates Instructor with over 10 years experience. She has worked in Canada and Melbourne, Australia where she ran her own successful clinic and clinical pilates studio. Rebecca loves a complex case and the satisfaction from relieving pain quickly, whilst supporting people in breaking habits and making sustainable changes in their lifestyle so that they can return to enjoying a healthy and vibrant life. She has a strong interest in pre and postnatal health, pelvic pain, and gut health.
Rebecca is an Australian-trained Osteopath having completed 5 years of study in Osteopathy at Victoria University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia and gained a Bachelor in Health Science (Clinical Science) and Masters in Health Science (Osteopathy). She has a straight-forward approach to treatment using skills in joint manipulation, soft tissue, and pilates.
Since having her own baby and personally experiencing the path that has to be followed to return to a strong and active lifestyle, she particularly enjoys guiding motivated women to return to the activities that they love and enjoy through a combination of Osteopathy, pelvic floor rehabilitation, and pilates.
Rebecca enjoys taking her son hiking, snowboarding, pilates, chocolate and hopefully in the near future some camping.
In 2019 Rebecca completed her studies in Western Medical Acupuncture to provide another modality to her treatments.
Areas of interest: Women’s health, pre and postnatal care including rectus diastasis (abdominal separation) and pelvic floor rehabilitation. Treatment and rehabilitation for the neck, back and pelvic pain for both men and women. Pudendal neuralgia. Digestive complaints.
