Alison Bowie Physio & Yoga Therapy
Alison graduated with a Masters in Physiotherapy from Dalhousie University in 2012. She spent her first year as a Physiotherapist in Alberta, working in a rural hospital. It was during this time that she became well rounded in her acute care skills as she worked on a surgical and medical unit while covering ICU and home care. This hospital setting allowed Alison to work with clients requiring a wide range of services, including post-operative therapy as well as cardio-pulmonary and neurological rehabilitation.
Just as all east coasters do, Alison moved back home and began her career in private health care where she has found her niche. Alison is interested in treating clients holistically as she views the body as being made up of many systems that are interconnected, functioning dependently of each other. It is for this reason that she enjoys working in a multi-disciplinary setting where clients are treated as a whole.
Alison is also known for her passion towards persistent pain, mindfulness and yoga. While in graduate school she studied the effects of mindfulness on chronic pain. Her yoga certifications include 200hrs in Hatha, prenatal yoga, yoga for trauma, and most recently, restorative yoga. Alison enjoys introducing mindfulness and yoga to those who are curious about the healing effects of this practice. Aside from these areas of interest, Alison is also trained in Acupuncture and Dry needling for the treatment of musculoskeletal disorder.
As the owner of ‘Alison Bowie Physio & Yoga Therapy,’ Alison looks forward to continuing her work alongside the team at Foundation Health Centre P.C. where she will assist you in reducing your pain, restoring your movement and returning you back to YOUR life in full function! In the meantime, keep an eye out for her unique yoga programs, especially designed for beginners, those with injuries or simply someone looking for more balance in their life.
