About Penny

Penny enjoys treating a wide range of clients for general and maintenance issues with great interest in acute and chronic lower back injuries. Penny also enjoys working with elderly home care clients.

Penny has, herself suffered a lumbar disc injury and so understands the frustration and pain associated with such a debilitating injury. Penny found rehabilitation success through Pilates and Soft Tissue Therapy and also through the knowledge gained from her studies. Penny aims to educate her clients on their injuries in addition to providing soft tissue treatment with exercise based rehab to reduce pain, build stability and prevent further injury.
