Hi, My name is Lise. I first qualified as a physiotherapist in France, my country of origin in 2002. I have always been interested in learning how the body can function globally and I did a training course over 18 months on muscular sling in 2006/2007.
I completed my family of three children in France and became very interested in the womens health area with my first pregnancy in 2005. Since then, I have completed training based on prevention of birth trauma through birth positioning in France with Bernadette de Gasquet in 2005-2006 and applied those lessons with my three pregnancies, births and post natal care.
I also completed training in hypopressive gymnastics (known in Australia as low pressure fitness) with Marcel Caufriez in 2008.
We then moved to Australia (my husband is Australian) in 2010 where I completed an advanced diploma of Myotherapy in 2011. Even though my French qualification wasnt recognised here in Australia, I kept learning and attended numerous womens health courses throughout Australia until I decided to sit the equivalence exams for my physiotherapy qualification here in Australia in 2013/2014 (a long and difficult process but I dont regret it!).
I regularly read, attend webinars, courses and lectures about womens health. I recently completed a 3 day osteopathic course on pelvic visceral mobilisation with Natalie Lejeune, renown French osteopath, which I incorporate in my treatment of ladies with fertility issues, women suffering from endometriosis, pelvic pain, IBS or women post pelvic surgery.
I am currently a member of the APA (Australian Physiotherapy Association, CFA (Continence Foundation of Australia) and a member of the international womens health Facebook groups where we constantly share knowledge.
