“Movement is a medicine for creating change in a person's physical, emotional and mental states.”

Hi, I'm Andrea Plitz
Co-Founder & Physiotherapist at Bloom Integrative Health & Movement Centre
As a physiotherapist and yoga teacher Andrea loves to blend the science and art of biomechanical diagnosis and holistic therapeutics with movement, energy, and breath.
She believes a big part of that is helping people to reconnect with their bodies in a new and individualized way taking into consideration their unique health and movement profile. This allows the body and mind to work together to enhance outcomes, integrating positive change in an easy and holistic manner to improve health, function, and movement, returning to oneness.
A combination of manual therapy including gentle joint mobilizations, myofascial release, craniosacral therapy, visceral manipulation, exercise rehabilitation including integration of breath, Yoga, Pilates, Hypopressives – Low Pressure Fitness, and other mindful movement therapies, are used in a protocol-free, individualized and functional approach. More recently, Andrea has also been exploring and taking advanced trainings in Functional Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine to understand and support the deeper biochemistry of patients in relation to their complaints.
