Louise completed her Bachelor of Medical Science and a Diploma of Remedial Massage before completing her Bachelor of Applied Science (Physiotherapy) in 2002.

Louise has considerable experience with clients with chronic respiratory and cardiac conditions and finds strength training, pilates exercises and stretches extremely helpful for assisting with breathlessness, posture and the musculoskeletal concerns that often accompany chronic medical conditions or age-related deconditioning.
