Shoulders + Posture

HOW ARE YOUR SHOULDERS FEELNG? How about your NECK and UPPER BACK? According to the Principle of Progressive Adaptation and the Law of Specificity...we are what we do most often. We are CONSTANTLY adapting, the question is what are you adapting to? Most of us are flexed and closed in over screens A LOT.

  • Function Capacities of the shoulder are gong extinct - shoulder extension, elevation, external rotation...

  • When was the last time you reached behind you?

  • Shoulder muscles imbalances are a major contributing factor in neck compression..and vice versa

  • OPEN YOUR SHOULDERS EVERY DAY!

my story

I believe MOVEMENT is the the best therapy and our most powerful tool. I am a self proclaimed “movement science geek” and my mission is to bring you high quality movement videos so you can begin your journey of FEELING GOOD and REACHING YOUR PHYSICAL POTENTIAL. I have been a physiotherapist for over 20 years and have a clinical practice in North Vancouver where I use a combination of manual therapy, dry needling and movement. In addition, I am a clinical instructor at the University of British Columbia in the Faculty of Medicine, Department of Physical Therapy. Locally, I teach group KINSTRETCH classes and lead workshops for movement enthusiasts. I love teaching, am CONSTANTLY learning and am insanely curious about anatomy. All bodies and levels are welcome. I hope to see you soon!
