Gloria obtained her Masters of Physical Therapy at the University of Sydney in 2012 after completing her Bachelors of Kinesiology degree at SFU.
In her stint as a kinesiologist, Gloria developed extensive experience in working with a diverse set of patients, ranging from elite athletes to those in chronic pain. She enjoys treating all types of patients and believes in providing personalized care that combines manual therapy, patient education and
specific exercise prescription along with acupuncture/dry needling to improve mobility, increase stability and restore function. Gloria’s treatment philosophy focuses not only on alleviating pain, but also promoting long-term wellness by finding the driver and correcting imbalances to prevent future injury.
Gloria is passionate about continuously expanding her knowledge base and has completed numerous post-graduate courses in manual therapy, acupuncture, and pelvic floor rehabilitation. She completed the ConnectTherapy and Thoracic Ring Approach with Dr. Linda Joy Lee which is a patient centered model that involves whole body assessment, finding the drivers of dysfunction and treating the whole
person. With a keen interest in Pelvic health, Gloria has completed The Pelvi-Perineal Re- Education course as well as a pregnancy-related pain course (Rost therapy) to assist women in the different stages of pregnancy, as well as postpartum. With the ConnectTherapy framework, it has enabled her to better understand the pelvic floor as it relates to the rest of the body.
Outside the clinic, Gloria enjoys an active lifestyle that includes swimming, running, yoga, and hiking with her dog. She has completed numerous half-marathons, 5 full marathons and 2 sprint triathlons.
