Margherita graduated from Simon Fraser University in 2008 and went on to obtain her Masters of Physical Therapy in 2010 from the University of British Columbia. Always looking to further her education and professional development she has gained a wide range of skills that have allowed her to develop her unique and individualized approach to client care. This includes specific training for treatment techniques including acupuncture, Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS), and vestibular rehabilitation for treatment of dizziness and vertigo.
The game changer for Margherita was in 2014 when she was introduced to ConnectTherapy™ and The Thoracic Ring Approach™ (Dr. LJ Lee). ConnectTherapy is a clinical model that involves whole body assessment to determine the underlying cause for pain or dysfunction allowing for a more specific, patient-centred treatment plan. In 2017, after completing the ConnectTherapy Series and associated courses (2014-2016) Margherita was accepted in to the year long ConnectTherapy Practitioner Certification Program where she is excited to receive further clinical mentorship and to enhance her skills to the next level. She is also a teaching assistant for the ConnectTherapy Series and the Sports Thorax courses in Vancouver, BC.
Margherita is constantly amazed by the design of the human body and with what it can achieve. She is passionate about helping people to create a more positive experience within their bodies – in how they move and in how they feel.
