It was in this dynamic environment that Robin received an extemporaneous apprenticeship in trauma informed care, and was required to practice her intuitive approach to healthcare, leaving no part of her patient out. For it is true as American playwright William Alfred said, that every act of the body is an act of the soul.
Her ongoing desire to improve her PT skill set and knowledge base has led her to pursue studies in the facilitation of optimal movement patterning (including the core action of breathing), and manual therapy for joint and soft tissue mobilisation.
For many patients, Robin starts with education to establish an initial connection to, and understanding of, the part of the body lost in sensorimotor amnesia. Awareness is the first step to healing. She helps her patients heal and integrate changes, feel inspired and remain hopeful, and embrace their bodies and the process. The continued development of her work through study and practice achieves profound and lasting results.
Prior to entering the M.P.T. program, Robin was an independent yoga teacher and dancer in Saskatoon. She continues to refine her understanding of the magnificent human form and its function through her east and west coast based physiotherapy practices and daily yoga practice and teachings.
She holds professional memberships with the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA), the Nova Scotia College of Physiotherapists (NSCP), and the College of Physical Therapists of British Columbia (CPTBC).
Robin currently lives in Vancouver, BC. She is available and open for collaboration and teaching events.
