Gillian is fascinated by the body, movement and human behaviour in relationship to our health. Her work is inspired by over 25 years of physiotherapy experience, pain neuroscience, yoga, mindfulness (MBSR) teaching and studies in psychology and holistic health approaches . She continues to learn from her patients on a daily basis and it still amazed how much joy her work can bring!

She recognizes through her own pain recovery and her clinical work that we can become stronger and discover a new balance after experiencing pain or injury.  Gillian listens and offers practical explanations for why you may have pain. She has found this helps you feel more in control of the whole process with longer lasting outcomes.


Although her services are based in Tofino, she continues to see individuals throughout BC for tele-health pain coaching, physical rehabilitation, yoga and mindfulness.
