At this stage of her career, Bobbie is choosing to work locums, or temporary positions, incorporating a little travel with her work.  With numerous ProActive locations and the positive teamwork atmosphere, it is a good fit!

Bobbie’s philosophy regarding physiotherapy is that a good assessment is important.  “Understanding the root problem allows me to work on the causes, not just the symptoms; treatment is more effective and there is significantly less chance of re-occurrence.  Seeing people regain confidence in their health, even excelling beyond what they were pre-injury, is great – I love what I do!”

When she is not working, Bobbie enjoys sea kayaking around Newfoundland’s incredible coastline, a hike, food and friends, or a dip in the pond with a campfire after.  While finishing his engineering degree at MUN, her son continues to amaze her with his passion to explore and excel in numerous pursuits.

Kelly White

Registered Massage Therapist

Kelly graduated from ICT Northumberland College in July 2009 she believes in
the healing power developed through the interrelation of touch, intuition, intention
from the therapist and the trust, openness of the client. She focuses her practice on
deep tissue, myofascial and cupping therapy.
Myofascial release incorporates gentle prolonged touch to the body’s fascial system
in order to release restrictions due to adhesions, scar tissue, prolonged poor
postural habits, structural imbalances, stress or trauma. This release is guided by
the client’s own body as tissues realign and stretch in order to initiate the body’s
natural self-correcting process. Cupping massage consist of special cups placed on
the skin to create suction as an alternative technique for deep tissue and myofascial
massage
Kelly also has a special interest in prenatal massage she utilizes a bolster pillow.
This allows expecting mothers to lay comfortable and safely on the massage table
while having the belly fully supported.
In her spare time Kelly can be found hiking with her dog, working in the garden
Sewing, reading or working in a variety of art mediums.

On my last clinical placement, I worked with the city of Stirling to assist people with chronic or long-term disability re-enter the workplace in meaningful employment. It was after this experience I chose to direct my career towards helping people return or remain in the workplace.

Once returning back to Canada I started my career as an OT with Western Health as a member of the occupational rehabilitation team specializing in ergonomics and workplace analysis. Originally from the Burin Peninsula, I had always wanted to work in this field of OT but the long drive from the west coast just wasn’t cutting it! After a couple years living in Corner Brook an opportunity came up to move closer to home which leads me to my current role as a Disability Case Manager with Eastern Health.

With my experience I offer both return to work services as well as ergonomic workplace consultation and recommendations. To book an appointment or for more information on OT services please call 466-3783.
