Here is what some of her patients have to say!
Thank you so much! You have been one of the major people apart of my journey to this medal! Thank you again for all the support you have provided.
My body responded really well to the treatment. I wasn’t sore or fatigued by any means, but I did feel a little clumsy in the first half hour of training. It’s almost as though we hit the reset button and it took a couple turns to get used to being even and powerful again! So obviously no complaints there! Quite honestly I’m thrilled!
I ultimately experienced a miracle of speedy and complete recovery under the expert care of Canadian Olympic team physiotherapist Susan Massitti.
