Alison grew up in North Vancouver, however she pursued her Physiotherapy degree in New Zealand and graduated in 2001 from the University of Otago. She has experience treating a wide variety of clientele including field athletes, runners, dancers, and triathletes, as well as individuals presenting with postural dysfunction and neck/back issues. Her treatment approach includes a combination of manual therapy, IMS, anatomical acupuncture, and exercise prescription. Additionally, she places a strong emphasis on client education as she believes it will enhance the overall experience and outcome. Having spent many years competing in road and trail racing and duathlons, Alison has a particular interest in running gait analysis and the prevention and treatment of running injuries.
