Heidi was born in South Africa and moved to Canada at the age of 10, spending the majority of her childhood in small towns around Northern BC and Vancouver Island. She completed all of her post-graduate schooling, including her Master’s in Physiotherapy, at Queen’s University in Kingston, ON and has been working in Victoria since 2017

 

Heidi has extensive experience treating all sorts of different injuries and conditions (from neck, shoulders, arms, low back, hips, knees & ankles...) and along the way has developed an interest in women’s pelvic health. With an appreciation for staying active and optimizing health, Heidi has completed post-graduate training focused around pregnancy and postpartum care, incontinence, prolapse, pelvic pain (including low back, hip, and sacro-iliac joint pain), vestibulodynia (vaginal pain), dyspareunia (painful intercourse), and coccydynia (tailbone pain).

 

Heidi thoroughly enjoys working with patients to combat pelvic health concerns, but is equally as excited to focus on any other muscle or joint injury, pain, niggle, or condition. Her approach emphasizes listening to your concerns and working with you to create strategies and goals focused on getting you back to the activities, work, sports, and daily tasks you love to do. She enjoys creating individualized care plans with a focus on education, manual therapy, IMS/Functional Dry Needling, exercise and hydrotherapy.

 

When not at the clinic, Heidi enjoys hiking and camping with her husband and 2 dogs, jogging, local coffee shop visits, cooking, and the occasional cross stitch project.
