From 2018 to 2019, Joy worked in a private setting that incorporated Pilates with physiotherapy in the treatment and rehabilitation of patients. Joy is a Polestar Pilates Rehabilitation certified practitioner. Her interest in clinical Pilates stemmed from her exposure, during her university course in Melbourne, to the rehabilitative process of Pilates with its emphasis on the importance of proper functional movement and body awareness, as well as it being a fun exercise to do.
Joy enjoys an active physical lifestyle. She was a competitive long distance runner in school and had participated in national cross-country competitions in Singapore. She participated in several marathons and many other running events. She has an interest in other physical pursuits such as skiing and rock climbing. This is the source of her interest in sports injury rehabilitation and informs her approach towards treatment of patients who are keen on getting back to pain-free sport and work.
Since joining The Physio Movement in December 2019, Joy has found the emphasis on function and movement to be an effective approach to the successful treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries. She looks forward to combining this with her experience in clinical Pilates and dry needling to provide a holistic approach to successful treatment of her patients.
