Olga is a Portuguese physiotherapist that obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Physiotherapy from a renowned Portuguese school (ESTSP) in 2011. During this time she had 4 internships in major hospitals and rehab units. After graduating, Olga decided to challenge herself and embarked on a journey to work as a Massage Therapist on a cruise ship for a major international provider of Health, Wellness and Fitness services at sea. Here, she not only developed her manual therapy and soft tissue release techniques through continuous training, but also developed her interpersonal skills by working with an international clientele.
Two and a half years later, she returned to Portugal where she worked in a Physiotherapy clinic as part of a multidisciplinary rehabilitation team, treating conditions ranging from acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions to neurological and respiratory dysfunctions in children, adults and elderly. In her time in Portugal, she undertook continuing education courses to help her better care for her patients such as, International Kinesio Taping (KT1 & 2), Clinical Pilates Matwork M1 (APPI), Respiratory Physiotherapy guided by Pulmonary Auscultation with Guy Postiaux and several Soft Tissue Release Techniques courses.
Her thirst for learning brought her to McGill University in Montreal, where she obtained her Physiotherapy Equivalency Certificate and she is a member of the OPPQ – Ordre Professionnel de la Physiothérapie du Québec. She has been working in Montreal since and is currently pursuing her studies in the McKenzie Method/MDT. Having suffered several injuries herself, she understands the importance of being an active participant in your own recovery. She is a practical physiotherapist with a passion for helping people. Olga will be by your side and guide you through the process of recovering from your injury and work with you to achieve your goals.
