Sally is passionate about helping people function to the best of their ability, to facilitate and improve functional movement and assist people in reaching their goals. Her treatment approach is ‘hands-on’, using manual therapy and movement facilitation techniques to improve joint or whole body movement patterns and in doing so, improve function.
When not at work, Sally is a busy Mom to 4 kids and can be found on the sidelines of many soccer or field hockey turfs. She enjoys hiking and exploring the great outdoors with her family. She also enjoys gardening and growing her own vegetables. Running keeps her fit, and she continues to enjoy training for and running marathons and half marathons.
