Haley Flewwelling graduated from Dalhousie University with a Bachelor of Science Degree, combined honors in psychology and biology in 2014, and completed her Masters degree in physiotherapy in 2016. Haley’s goal as a practitioner is to incorporate continued learning and skills, along with a team based approach to provide holistic, quality care.
Haley’s Master’s thesis focused on experiments that investigated the role of imagery in movement rehabilitation after brain injury. This research helps to substantiate the mind-body connection and its potential application in practical treatment. This led to an interest in furthering her knowledge through osteopathy, which embraces the philosophy that the body has an inherent ability to heal itself through the circulation of fluids. Haley is in the first year of a 5-year osteopathic degree program. This will allow Haley to work as a physiotherapist, develop her skills, while implementing osteopathic techniques.
Haley has a background in sport, as a high-level gymnast, and power cheerleader. Whether she is dancing, singing, or walking on her hands, she always brings a positive energy to every undertaking. Haley is the mother of a beautiful toddler named Ava. These aspects of her life, along with clinical placements and studies, have focused her interest in holistic care of sports injuries and child development, among others.
