Brittany Niemantsverdriet, MScPT

Intuitive Coach, Energy Practitioner, Physical Therapist

Since graduating in 2011 from the University of Alberta with her Master’s in Physical Therapy, Brittany has been exploring and expanding her knowledge of the physical body and how it heals. She has discovered through personal and professional experience that approaching the body holistically, as a multi-layered being, allows us to improve our capacity to heal and pursue the things we love. For her, that means having the freedom and ability to travel and explore nature, and being in alignment allows her to do those things in abundance.  Brittany has designed a unique blend of Physical Therapy, Intuitive Coaching, and Energetic Healing to guide you back into alignment in your physical, emotional and spiritual bodies and get you back to the things you love with ease. With this approach, she guides you to the root issue of your pain, providing you with an individualized roadmap to heal your body.
