Bio continued

Prior to pursuing a physiotherapy degree, Esther worked as a professional swimming coach in Hong Kong for 10 years during and after her first degree in Sport and Recreation Leadership. As well as coaching children, Esther also worked with adults. Alongside being a swimming coach, she also taught in sports camps as a multi-sports teacher. This gave Esther the opportunity to learn different sports such as netball, rugby, football, badminton, basketball and tennis. Having a solid understanding of different sports enhances her ability to guide athletes of different levels and understand the needs of rehabilitation following injuries.

”I enjoy communicating with people who come from different backgrounds and cultures. I found it fascinating to listen to people’s stories and learn from them, which allows my insight into different perspectives and needs. As a result, I can target their needs in a holistic approach.”

Her physiotherapy treatments are tailored to fit the individual needs of the patient. This is vital when helping with optimal recovery from injuries and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Below are a few examples of different techniques Esther incorporates into her treatments.

  • Joint mobilisation
  • Joint manipulation
  • Sports massage
  • Soft tissue release
  • Deep tissue massage
  • Neurological rehabilitation
  • Pulmonary rehabilitation
  • Exercise therapy for strengthening and long term management
  • Lifestyle modification.

Esther had completed additional CPD, training and qualifications in:

  • Hong Kong Swimming Coach 2017
  • Kinesio Taping 2019
  • Sports Massage 2020
  • COVID-19 Respiratory Physiotherapy Update 2020
  • Paediatric Physiotherapy Simulation Course 2021
  • Principles of Level 3 Basic Life Support 2021

When Esther isn’t working, she enjoys spending time with friends. Her favourite things to do include hiking, wakeboarding, wake surfing, swimming, kayaking, playing Ma Jong, and playing board games. She also enjoys going on food adventures with her friends. Fresh seafood and spicy dishes, she says, are the most delectable cuisine. Esther also enjoys spending time at home with her Bengal cat, Ninja.
