From l to r, Kirsty Nicol, Susan Rankin, Sarah Kennedy and Christina Wong

This past week-end was an incredible time of learning and sharing. Three new Physiotherapists came to learn their Advanced Techniques in Facial Neuromuscular Retraining. We spent time discussing, assessing, and treating a variety of facial palsy patients.

Thank you to all my patients who so generously offered their time while allowing us to scrutinize their faces. Thanks also to Maria Zerjav who kindly gave us access to her clinic  and provided valuable assistance.

The three new Physiotherapists are:

Kirsty Nicol who works at Neuromotion Physiotherapy, 303-531 Yates St., Victoria, (250-590-7878). I am very pleased to have someone in Victoria who can see island patients.

Sarah Kennedy who works from Westside Physiotherapy and Hand Clinic, 230-1245 West Broadway, Vancouver (604-731-6225). Sarah joins Maria Zerjav who owns and works at the same clinic and was advanced trained in February.

Christina Wong works at Electra Health Floor, 970 Burrard St. and 535 Hornby St., Vancouver, (604-685-4325). Christina’s practice is conveniently located in downtown Vancouver near St Paul’s Hospital.
