She believes in giving clients the skills for on-going self care. Annie speaks from both the therapist’s and patient’s points of view, having been her own rehabilitation therapist, taking two years to learn to walk again unaided following a near fatal paragliding accident which left her back and neck fractured in 7 places, both legs and numerous ribs fractured and a lung punctured. Annie understands that not all injuries have a quick fix, that many need ongoing care and maintenance, sometimes for life. She encouragingly advises this does not need to be a chore, but can be fun, with clinical pilates and yoga being fantastic mediums for achieving physical and emotional wellness.
