Bringing over 15 years of experience to her practice, she has developed a “Whole Body Fix” signature system that teaches men and women with persistent pain following an injury or accident how to get back to living a pain free active lifestyle even if you’re ready to throw in the towel because you’ve already tried “everything”.
Through her own experience of being a competitive gymnast, to coaching gymnastics, and now leading an active mountain lifestyle, she knows what it takes to get you back on your feet doing the activities that you love to do. She works with a variety of techniques and tools best suited to you and focus on identifying the root causes of your injury and discomfort so that she can create an inspired action plan to move you toward your goal of enjoying the activities you love!

Alexandra believes that everyone is an athlete of some sort: whether they are a weekend warrior, a tradesperson, a parent, or an elite level competitor. She’s passionate about injury prevention and rehabilitation, and quickly returning those athletes back to their sport, work, or daily activities.

An avid snowboarder, mountain biker, climber, and golfer, Alexandra is excited to be back in the outdoor paradise of Nelson.
