Carissa has a very strong interest in the rehabilitation of muscles which led her to further her studies and become a Certified Rehabilitation Pilates Instructor in 2008.
Carissa unfortunately was involved in an accident at the age of 16, which caused her to suffer from chronic low back pain. During year 12 she was very frustrated with her pain and decided to choose a career to educate herself about her body. Carissa chose Myotherapy after seeking all types of therapy to help herself. While studying Myotherapy she was advised to try Pilates to strengthen her core and lower back. Carissa now lives an active and pain free life and wants to help you achieve this.
In the past twelve years Carissa has treated an extensive amount of acute and chronic muscular pain, tightness and restriction of movement. With the combination of personal experience, Pilates and Myotherapy Carissa is very passionate in helping you.
