My Motto… I Love Movement!

“Dancing was my first love and I miss performing every day. I still take regular classes in musical theatre, jazz, and hip hop. I perform every year now in the Cuban Salsa scene for shows, congress and conventions and am often seen strutting my stuff dancing for the 12am MG show! I’ve done static trapeze, pole and am now an avid acro balance fan as of 2003”.
Sally started working for Perfect Form Physio in 2008 and is the most senior employee at the clinic. A dedicated team member, Sally is involved with much of the continued education program for the other clinicians at Perfect Form Physio and also an integral part of the externally led workshops.
