ABOUT

  Gillian

Gillian continues to be fascinated by the body and the psychology of human movement. Her daily work is inspired by over 25 years of physiotherapy experience, specialization in persistent pain, yoga teaching, mindfulness/ MBSR teaching and psychology studies. 

She recognizes through her own pain recovery and clinical work that we can become stronger and find a new balance after experiencing pain or injury.  Gillian prioritizes real listening and offering practical explanations for why you may have pain. She has found this can help you to feel more in control of the recovery process and ensure longer term solutions.

Gillian welcomes all acute and persistent (chronic) pain problems to her clinic. She is loving her new clinic location in Tofino and grateful all the clients who have helped build a thriving clinic so far!

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