ABOUT BRENDAN

I have a great love for the outdoors, fresh air and fresh food. I start the morning with exercise, meditation and a run with the dogs. My passion lies in helping people get back to doing the things they love to do.

 

I focus on the Why more than the What – Why did this injury occur?

 

I completed my Bachelor of Science in Human Kinetics at the University of Victoria and my Masters of Science in Physical Therapy at the University of Toronto, where I went on to be an Instructor of clinical education of Physical Therapy.

 

In 2010 I moved to Sydney where I had the fortune of working with world renowned Dr LJ Lee, training in the Thoracic Ring Approach™ and ConnectTherapy™. In 2016 I completed the ConnectTherapy series and then went on to assist the Series in 2017.

 

LJ's approach covers the whole body and how it is interconnected, exploring the cause and impact of these connections. Once you understand the ‘why’, you can develop new strategies for optimal movement. 

 

These practices now dictate my approach to physiotherapy and the services I provide. I call it looking for ‘the wow’, when you fix the why, your patient lets out a ‘wow’.

 

I believe in treating the whole person rather than individual parts.
