Medical Exercise Specialist
Certified Exercise Physiologist
Functional Movement Systems Specialist
Heidi brings 12 years experience in the rehabilitation industry, with expertise in the area of functional rehabilitative exercise to assist client s to return to daily activities, work, or sport in a safe manner. She brings experience in occupational rehabilitation with ICBC and WCB clients, and has taught a variety of back health and wellness work site courses and academic courses at the college level.
Heidi will work to design a customized program that is unique to your specific needs and personal goals. She continually upgrades her education to incorporate new research in exercise assessment and prescription. She works closely with other physiotherapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, physiatrists, medical doctors, and occupational therapists to fully achieve client and therapist goals.
Heidi has worked with adolescents to seniors, and clients with varying disabilities (including Downs Syndrome, brain injury, cystic fibrosis, multiple sclerosis, vertigo/balance), post motor vehicle accident ICBC patients as well as clients with various post-operative recovery treatment programs.
“My goal is for clients to develop an exercise based health management strategy that will keep them not only functionally and physically strong but emotionally and mentally strong; to give them confidence in being committed to a healthy exercise habit that is both preventative and proactive. Whether they come to see me for an exercise program to lose weight or because they have been in a motor vehicle accident, I want my clients to feel internally motivated that they can make a difference when they are committed to an exercise program.”
