A little bit about me:

My fascination with scoliosis started in the early days of my career as a physiotherapist in the Philippines. I vividly remember a family whose child had scoliosis and was facing surgery. Back then, my knowledge about scoliosis was limited because it wasn’t emphasized in our physiotherapy curriculum. This experience lit a spark in me to delve deeper into scoliosis and seek additional training abroad. Thankfully, our efforts led to a reduced need for surgery.

Coming from a third-world country, I’ve always placed a strong emphasis on making therapy plans cost-effective. I’m dedicated to maximizing every visit while ensuring the families’ satisfaction. I deeply value the time and effort my patients invest in physiotherapy.

I started my career as a community-based and hospital-based physiotherapist. After discovering my interest in scoliosis rehabilitation, I advanced my knowledge by taking local and overseas training. My ultimate goal is to become an exceptionally skilled physiotherapist capable of guiding individuals and families on their scoliosis and spine health journey through exercise-based treatment and conservative management.


Before I immigrated to Vancouver, I had the privilege of running my very own scoliosis clinic in the Philippines as a solo physiotherapist. It was an incredible experience, but my journey didn’t end there. Joining The ScoliClinic has been a fantastic opportunity for me to continue growing as a physiotherapist and expanding my skills.

I truly believe that teamwork with compassionate and dedicated colleagues can make a world of difference in the experience of our clients and their families. At the ScoliClinic, our clients get the benefit of tapping into the collective knowledge of specialists from various fields.

For me, the measure of success in treatment is when our clients develop a profound understanding of their condition, the exercises, pain prevention, and management, to the point where they need less and less supervision from the physiotherapist. There’s no greater reward than witnessing our patients blossom into self-confident, strong individuals who become passionate advocates for scoliosis rehabilitation, inspiring other families facing similar challenges along the way.


What to expect in a session with me:

I strive for collaborative connections with my clients, working to understand each curve together, find what’s valuable to each person, and breaking down the complexities and factors of each curve.

I’m committed to learning together with and from my clients, and applying my experiences to create a holistic approach to health management. I appreciate treating clients who already find value in what they do, and am passionate about supporting and encouraging others to also see their own value.
