Margherita graduated from Simon Fraser University in 2008 and went on to obtain her Masters of Physical Therapy in 2010 from the University of British Columbia.

Always looking to further her education and professional development she has gained a wide range of skills that have allowed her to develop her unique and individualized approach to client care. This includes specific training for treatment techniques including acupuncture, Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS), and vestibular rehabilitation for treatment of dizziness and vertigo.

The game changer for Margherita was in 2014 when she was introduced to Connect Therapy (LJ Lee) and The Thoracic Ring Approach (LJ Lee). Connect Therapy is a clinical model that involves whole body assessment to determine the underlying cause for pain or dysfunction allowing for a more specific, patient-centred treatment plan. In 2017, after completing the Connect Therapy Series and associated courses (2014-2016) Margherita was accepted in to the year long Connect Therapy Practitioner Certification Program where she is excited to receive further clinical mentorship and to enhance her skills to the next level. She is also a teaching assistant for the Connect Therapy Series and the Sports Thorax courses in Vancouver, BC.

Margherita is constantly amazed by the design of the human body and with what it can achieve. She is passionate about helping people to create a more positive experience within their bodies – in how they move and in how they feel.

I was born and raised in Canada and decided to combine my passion for travel with my passion for health by moving abroad to obtain my Degree in Physiotherapy. After successfully completing my degree, I moved back home where I passed the UBC Physiotherapy exams in 2014. Since then, I have worked in private practice and have loved every minute of it. With the goal to improve my patients’ level of care, I continuously seek to further my knowledge, thus far acquiring treatment skills in Visceral Manipulation, Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction, and Taping.   Most recently, I have successfully completed ConnectTherapyTM and The Thoracic Ring Approach Course by Dr. LJ Lee.  The whole body assessment approach taught by Dr. LJ Lee provided the framework to unlock some of the challenges we face as Physiotherapist in treating our patients. With this inspiring approach, my aim is to target the source of the issue, such that treatments can be effectively implemented to provide a lasting solution.   My personal time is filled with being a proud mother of two, an avid volunteer, and a student of the human body. Recently, I have found a passion in learning about food and its impact to our health. I truly believe that the first step to good health is a healthy diet, and that the body can be healed largely by the food we eat. Combining this passion with my love of Physiotherapy creates a natural fit, as our health is the sum of our many actions.

Carol was born and raised in Vancouver. She graduated from the University of British Columbia in 1983 with a Bachelors Degree in Rehabilitation Medicine (in Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy). For over 30 years, she worked primarily in the public rehabilitation setting with older adults (aged 55+), helping her clients manage chronic or recurring conditions, or recover from surgery (particularly hip, knee, foot/ankle) or traumatic injuries.

A firm believer in life-long learning, Carol has completed an extensive list of post-graduate courses. She has taken a strong interest in the works of Diane Lee and Dr. Linda-Joy (LJ) Lee, which emphasize a whole-body approach to assessment and treatment. In 2014, Carol graduated from LJ’s course, “The Thoracic Ring Approach & The Integrated Systems Model” (which has since evolved into the now-called ‘ConnectTherapy’ courses). The techniques, developed by LJ, aim to find the ‘Driver’ and treat the whole person. This begins with a detailed discussion of a patient’s history followed by a thorough head-to-toe examination. (For more information, please go to the links, Connect Therapy™ and the-thoracic-ring-approach™.)

When not working, Carol dabbles in jewelry making and various sports, and revels in the company of family (including her husband and 2 sons) and friends. She has very fond memories of travelling, scuba diving trips, and competitive ballroom dancing.

I grew up in The Netherlands where I completed my Physiotherapy education. I have been working as a physiotherapist since 2003, practicing in the Netherlands and working in different settings including professional sports, hospital rehabilitation, elderly care, and private practice.

Since moving to Canada in 2014 my caseload has primarily focused on chronic and complex pain. Making a positive change in patients’ lives and helping them feel the difference is very rewarding. ​ When working with patients I enjoy the challenge and “puzzle” of figuring out what is driving pain. The primary focus in my treatments is treating the cause of the problem instead of the symptoms. I use a combination of manual therapy and dry needling within the ConnectTherapy™ and Thoracic Ring Approach™ (Dr. LJ Lee) and I have found this very effective, rewarding, and inspiring.
