the physio mom
At home, she is a mother of 2 beautiful children. After going through her own pregnancies and postpartum recovery, she gained a deeper interest and understanding of pelvic floor health. She believes all mothers need better self-care, self-love, and compassion. As mothers, we sacrifice for our children and make decisions based on their needs. Motherhood is definitely the most challenging and life-giving. Without caring for ourselves, we cannot care for the ones we love. Being authentic is the way we shall navigate through motherhood.
Hennie devotes her ongoing development in physical therapy to all women who deserve the best care for themselves. She dedicates her physiotherapy services to all women.
This is why she created HNG Women's Physiotherapy & Wellness Corp. See "HNG Women's Physiotherapy" section for more details.
Hennie serves Vancouver Coastal Health, Richmond Home Health, part-time. She welcomes all who are not currently receiving services from Vancouver Coastal Health, Richmond Home Health.
