Michelle graduated with a B.SC in Physiotherapy from the University of Cape Town in 2000.
She has worked in South Africa and the United Kingdom in the private sector covering a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. She has a special interest in track and field injuries especially sprinting, jumping, and long-distance running but enjoys managing all types of musculoskeletal conditions.
She believes that the body functions as a unit and that pain and injury are multidimensional, affecting many parts of the kinetic chain and other related areas. Her focus is on assessing the entire body to correct imbalances in weakness, tightness, and restrictions. She utilizes a combination of hands-on musculoskeletal techniques with strengthening and rebalancing exercises as well as Pilates and mobility to manage her client's conditions Through her additional training as an Integrative Health Practitioner, she has a passion for dealing with clients holistically, understanding that often injury and pain are related to other stressors such as disturbances in sleep patterns, overtraining, emotional stress, or dietary stress which all contribute to chronic overall body burden and heighten the inflammatory response in the body. She is passionate about helping clients rebalance their bodies to optimize recovery and return to their highest level of health and function.
