Stephanie is a big advocate of movement/task analysis which enables her to identify the root of one’s problem rather than just practising symptomatic treatment. Via the ’Connect Therapy and the Thoracic Ring Approach’, which is an assessment method that involves identification of drivers (body regions) that are the primary cause of one’s problem. This coupled with treatment of one’s immediate region of complain, allows for more effective and long-lasting outcomes.
Stephanie is a strong believer of “Body Management” that takes into account all body systems including joints, muscles, fascial, visceral and neural systems, that can have an impact on efficiency and performance.
Stephanie is also a believer of an active management approach. She is an accredited APPI Pilates instructor and is experienced in running mat and equipment based pilates classes.
Personally, she enjoys participating in Barre and pilates classes for dynamic mobility( mat and reformer based) and TrX classes for her own body management, which also gives her good insight on exercise techniques and body movement. She enjoys the outdoors and loves snowboarding, stand up paddle boarding and hiking. She is a keen basketball and soccer fan as well.
