MEET YOUR PHYSIO
Hi, I'm Michelle. I'm a registered Physiotherapist, Pilates instructor, nature-lover, trail runner, part-time Yogi, fur mom and wife. I qualified from UCT in 2016 and have spent the last three years working in Cape Town- mostly in private practice. I opened Midlands Physiotherapy in January 2020 and moved it to Port Elizabeth, my hometown, in May 2020, but decided to keep the name as it is where the journey began. I live a very active lifestyle and strive to live a healthy, conscious life and stay in tune with myself- mentally, emotionally and spiritually. As a physiotherapist, or any healer, it is so important to be able to practice what you preach. Saying that, I learn so much from my patients and genuinely enjoy the interactions and lessons I learn on a day-to-day basis. I find the body absolutely fascinating- every case is a puzzle to be figured out- and it is overall such a rewarding experience, for both the patient and myself.I see the body as a three dimensional functional unit. I understand that nothing moves in isolation and that we cannot treat a single joint, muscle or issue in the body without taking the whole body into consideration. Much time is spent creating a unified language.
I have been lucky to work in incredible environments and have truly gifted mentors and teachers along my career, that have helped me become the Physio I am today.
