Lesley was born and raised in Rotterdam. After high school she followed a tourist education. After graduation she continued work at her internship address. Lesley quickly realized the tourism industry was not her calling. As a result, she has done research into what fits her and where her interests lie. Two crucial points in searching for a suitable education motivated her: working with people and helping those in need. Based on this, she decided to take the physiotherapy course and she graduated with great passion and dedication.
During her training, Lesley completed an internship in a manual physiotherapeutic practice where head, shoulder and spine related problems were at the forefront. In addition, she did an internship in a geriatric rehabilitation center with a multidisciplinary setting. She treated elderly persons with strokes, COPD, oncological complaints, and orthopedic complaints. Lesley also followed a separate course during the training for relaxation massage. She commonly applies this intervention to people with central sensitization, increased muscle tension, and limited movement possibilities.
Immediately after the study, Lesley worked full-time in a multicultural practice, in which spine related complaints, headaches, shoulder pain and osteoarthritis were mainly seen. Because of these experiences, the affinity for the shoulder and headache symptoms were developed. Pelvic floor problems arising, for example, after pregnancy or surgery on the intestinal tract, are very appealing. Because of this, specializing in pelvic physiotherapy and dry needling are on her list for future training. BIG: 19922904504
