As a Practicing member of the BC Association of Kinesiologists, Medical Exercise Specialist and Functional Movement Screen certified professional, Anna-Marie provides compassionate, personalized active rehabilitation services in the Victoria area. Whether due to a fall, injury, illness, upcoming or recent surgery or deconditioning in general, if you are experiencing any limitation in your daily functioning, Anna-Marie would like to be able to help you regain your independence and achieve your activity goals.
Since returning to the field of active rehabilitation from her time as an Olympic rower, Anna-Marie has found great pleasure working with individuals of all ages and abilities. She loves how sometimes the most simple movement or exercise can provide such an incredible amount of independence. For example, being able to sit and stand safely, balance while putting on a jacket, reach for an item in a cupboard or negotiate a corner with a walker. Similarly, maintaining good posture, a stable core and sound positioning while performing athletic feats or working toward complex physical goals can be equally as empowering and motivating.
Anna-Marie also works as a Physiotherapy Support Worker with Annmarie Scanlan, Physiotherapist, of Scanlan Physiotherapy. These session are important for people who are in need hands-on therapy (Annmarie, Physio) in addition to the active rehabilitation provided by Anna-Marie (Kinesiologist). These sessions are available in the community, studio, pool or gym settings depending on the client’s needs and goals. The treatment and goals are set and monitored by the Physiotherapist but carried out by the Kinesiologist. Contact Anna-Marie (Kin) or Annmarie (Physio) for more information about these services.
