A graduate of Concordia University’s Exercise Science program with a specialization in Athletic Therapy, Cristina became a certified member of the Canadian Athletic Therapists’ Association (CATA) and La Corporation des Thérapeutes du Sport du Québec (CTSQ) in 2018.
She has experience working with various manual therapies while treating a wide range of clientele ranging from weekend warriors, to recreational athletes, to professional athletes. To couple this, she has a background working as a certified athletic therapist for high school hockey, football, rugby, soccer, and futsal. She has experience with teaching exercise classes as well as the administration of rehabilitative exercise programs, myofascial stretching, and concussion management. Currently completing an advanced concussion course for healthcare professionals, she is acquiring advanced knowledge involving the recognition, treatment, and prevention of concussions of simple to complex natures.
Cristina feels that the most effective way to treat an injury is to identify and understand its cause via the use of a thorough evaluation with an emphasis on ensuring that the client has an understanding of the nature of their injury. Her main goal is to help clients understand their bodies and, ideally, live a pain-free life!
