  • Amy Becke
    Physiotherapist

    Speaks: English

    Amy graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy from the
    University of Western Ontario in 1997. She is a member in good standing with
    the College of Physiotherapists in Ontario.

    For over 25 years, Amy has been practicing physiotherapy with pt Health. She
    started her career in Stoney Creek in 1997, and in 2007 transferred to her
    current location at Brant 730 Physiotherapy, in Burlington.

    Amy is passionate about promoting a healthy lifestyle, and believes in the body’s
    self-healing capacity. More recently, her continuing education has focused on
    coaching and plant-based nutrition. She has successfully completed her
    Lifestyle & Wellness Health Coach Certificate from York University, Plant-Based
    Nutrition Certificate from eCornell T. Colin Campbell Centre for Nutrition Studies,

    journey to regain their function and get back into life through a holistic approach
    and traditional rehab.

    Amy whole heartedly believes that, for the vast majority of us, we ultimately have
    the power to take control over our own health, through the simple choices we
    make on a daily basis; regarding our food, activity/exercise, stress management,
    and social connections. Our current health status is a reflection of the
    accumulation of our daily habits over our lifetime, which have either lead us
    towards good health, or away from it. Simple daily healthy choices, done
    consistently over time, can be very powerful on ones health status. The power of
    choice is ultimately your own.

    Amy enjoys working with a wide range of clients, from infants to seniors, and
    believes at any age we can live healthy to be well. The power to heal lies within
    all of us.

Being unable to engage in the things you want or need to do is incredibly difficult and affects us and those around us in many ways. This can take many forms including pain, concussion (memory, concentration thinking), mental health (anxiety, difficulty coping) or engagement (self-care, productivity, sleep, leisure).
