Get to know your therapist: Yi Ren

Tan Yi Ren - Physiotherapist

About Yi Ren

“When I’m not at work, you can find me at the climbing gym. I picked up rock climbing during my university days and it has since become a sport and hobby which I enjoy doing. Despite popular misconception that rock climbing is a workout only for the arms, the truth is that rock climbing involves the entire body to be aware in order to scale the heights in a most efficient manner. Being passionate about climbing has taught me how to appreciate my clients better, especially those who are injured from sports that places a high amount of stress on the shoulder.

Besides sports, I really enjoy driving. Driving lightens up my mood and clears my thoughts from any form of stress. To be greeted by the breath-taking scenic view during an overseas road trips is one of the most memorable experiences I had.”

What do you love most about your job? 

“My primary role as a Physiotherapist is to get people better. However, I believe that taking time to understand my clients and making them feel comfortable around me is crucial in order to gain their trust so that we can adopt a holistic approach towards their recovery.

I enjoy communicating with my clients while treating their condition as it gives me a chance to get to know them on a personal level. Furthermore, through the interaction, I am exposed to a myriad of information that I would not have otherwise found out about such as current news, trends and their experience during overseas trips. It is also interesting to hear different perspectives, opinions and life experiences from people who come from all walks of life.”

What is your proudest accomplishment?

“It would be graduating from University with a Bachelor of Science (Physiotherapy) with Honours”

If you could only eat one same meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? 

“That is a tough choice considering all the good food we have here in Singapore. But it would definitely be Sashimi Salad. It is one of my all time favourites and not forgetting, it is a healthy and clean diet to be on for the rest of my life.”
