Get to know your therapist – Emily
Unlike most of the ladies, I dislike shopping. My hobbies are traveling, watching movie, eating good-tasting food and listening to music. Most of my friends know that I am a seafood lover. I am blessed to be born in a small town in Malaysia that is famous for their variety of seafood. There are numerous restaurants which serve fresh and delicious seafood dishes at reasonable price. So, I will crave for seafood when I am back in my hometown.I am the first physiotherapist in Malaysia who is certified in the ‘Advanced 3D Treatment of Scoliosis’. This certification was awarded from the Barcelona Scoliosis Physical Therapy School (BSPTS) & Scoliosis Rehab Inc., USA in year 2013. After working for about 7 and a half years in Malaysia, I made a big move which was to start pursuing my career in Singapore last year. My passion lies in treating musculoskeletal problems especially spinal and women health cases.
What do you love most about your job?
I love the beauty of my job which is the job-satisfaction. It is amazing and satisfying when I see clients who were previously suffering from pain or losing normal functional mobility recover step by step. I am passionate in treating clients with musculoskeletal problems especially spinal and womens health related cases. Furthermore, I have been actively involving in rehabilitation of back pain, neck pain, pelvic floor dysfunction etc for years.
What is the one thing about yourself you would like to tell us that most people are unaware of?
When I am not at work, you may find me at cinema. I love comedy movies the most. Munching on snacks and watching my favourite comedy actors tickle my funny bone is a kind of awesome enjoyment. I feel free to laugh out loud without embarrassment in a theatre because everyone is also laughing equally loudly. I definitely feel relaxed and happy during the showing time. The cinema provides me with a avenue to feel rejuvenated and forget temporarily about the stress of day to day life, at least for a couple of hours. I personally feel that laughter is not only the best medicine but it is a great exercises for our facial muscles
What is your fondest memory?
The fondest memory I have is completing the first solo trip in my life from Malaysia to America for few weeks. I successfully visited few places like Chicago, Hollywood, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco and others all on my own. I learnt how to navigate in strange places and overcame every obstacle that I met during travelling. Although I occasionally felt awkward and lonely, I eventually learnt how to overcome these feelings. The more I challenged myself; the more I could learn, the more confident I felt. All in all, the trip was exciting, interesting and adventurous.
