Physiotherapist & Manual Osteopath
Cheri practices manual Physiotherapy and Osteopathy here at Pillars of Health. She started working in health care over 20 years ago as a traditional Physiotherapist and has continued to evolve her approach to treatment ever since then. As a physiotherapist she not only uses her hands to assess and treat the body but also uses modalities such as ultrasound, interferential current and acupuncture. These modalities combine well with her Osteopathic approach and she finds a combination of all her skills to be most effective in helping patients attain optimal health. She considers many medical issues a problem-solving challenge that involves not just herself and the patient but in many cases other medical professionals. A team approach to treatment is made much easier by working with so many other talented health care professionals here at Pillars.
Cheri completed her Bachelor of Science in Biology at Dalhousie University in 1991, her Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy at Dalhousie and McGill Universities in 1994, her five year completion certificate in Osteopathy from the College d’Etudes Osteopathiques in 2007 and her diploma in Osteopathic Manual Practice at the National Academy of Osteopathy in 2017. She also holds certificates in acupuncture, auricular acupuncture, cupping and Graston Technique.
