My name is jenessa
AN-IMS/Dry Needling practitioner
CSEP Personal Trainer
Certified Pilates Instructor
I was raised in the Okanagan where I completed my Bachelor of Human Kinetics at UBC Okanagan. I have extensive experience in clinical exercise as I worked as a kinesiologist for 3 years alongside physiotherapists and occupational therapists, and became a certified Pilates instructor and personal trainer.
During my time as a kinesiologist, I found myself in many situations where I was unable to advocate for my clients. As an empathetic and compassionate practitioner, this prompted me to pursue a career in Physiotherapy. A love of travel took me to Scotland where I graduated with a Master of Science in Physiotherapy at Robert Gordon University at the beginning of 2021.
After completing the physiotherapy program I moved back to the South Okanagan and has since focused my career in private practice where I love working with the variety of people that come into the clinic. I am a firm believer in the power of exercise, my rehab approach is exercise-based with the use of manual techniques as an adjunct.
I am excited to share my passion of exercise and movement with my patients.
