Wendy is a British trained Physiotherapist who completed her Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Physiotherapy at King’s College (London) in 2005. Upon graduation, she returned to Hong Kong and began her career in private practice, but also spent four years gaining invaluable orthopaedic, paediatric and cardio-respiratory physiotherapy experience working in Hong Kong’s public hospitals. In 2011, she successfully completed her Master’s Degree in Manual Therapy (University of Western Australia) giving her the expertise to treat the full spectrum of spinal and sports injuries from acute injuries, chronic repetitive overuse problems to biomechanical analysis for performance enhancement. To complement this, Wendy uses ‘core’ training (Pilates) principals to formulate the most effective rehabilitation and strengthening program for injuries ranging from post-partum women returning to exercise, to the elite level athlete.

She has also been the Team Physiotherapist for rugby at the Hong Kong Football Club; the Hong Kong Orienteering Team at the Asian Orienteering Championships in 2014; and part of the physiotherapy team at the ITU Triathlon Asian Cup in 2013. To further advance her skills in sports rehabilitation, she attained a Certificate in Advance Sports Rehabilitation with Manual Concepts (Perth, Australia) in 2014. Wendy also practices acupuncture having completed her Diploma in Clinical Acupuncture (HKU SPACE), which she uses to compliment her manual therapy skills in providing effective treatment regimes.

At PhysioMotion, Wendy has developed a special interest in Women’s Health having completed specialty training in Australia. She understands the demands placed on a woman's body from pregnancy / childbirth and that full recovery often requires specialist knowledge in women's health, but also expertise in manual therapy for optimal biomechanical alignment, and exercise prescription to develop strength.
