Treatment involves a variety of techniques, combining chiropractic treatment, with muscle treatment techniques such as myofascial release and Kinesio-taping. Philippa frequently treats dedicated recreational athletes, including members of the local running and cycling communities. She helps those who are re-introducing themselves to physical activity all the way up to seasoned athletes. She has worked at various sporting events as part of the event medical teams.
Philippa is post graduate certified and has extensive experience in pre-natal care. The Webster Technique focusses on optimizing the neurological and biomechanical function of the pelvis during pregnancy.
Philippa’s goal for a patient’s successful and comfortable pregnancy is to establish a team approach to pre-natal healthcare in order to enhance the health of both mother and baby by working closely with midwives, pre-natal massage therapists and encouraging participation in prenatal yoga and Pilates.
Outside of her practice, Philippa loves to spend her time outdoors and she can frequently be found exploring the local hiking trails with her two dogs. She looks forward to seeing you soon.
