“I love my profession because I’ve always been fascinated by the miracle of the human body and its high complexity both in its anatomy, and physiological processes.  Additionally, years of dancing since childhood has given me a good understanding of the interaction between flexibility and strength. During assessment and treatment I take all this information into account. I find personal satisfaction in helping patients to get back into shape.”
