Judith Anne Gould BPhty (Hons), MPhil
Judith Anne Gould completed her Physiotherapy qualifications at the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia in 1987. She completed an Honours degree the following year where her research thesis investigated the relationship between muscle length and patello-femoral pain.
After working in hospitals and private practices in various States and Territories of Australia, Judith travelled to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. While there she established a rehabilitation exercise programme for pre and post ACL knee joint reconstructions.
In 1994 she arrived in Hong Kong and after several years in private practice she completed her B.E.T. Pilates training. For the next eleven years at the B.E.T Centre she was involved in clinical management, staff and course training, monitoring of evidence-based outcomes and research projects.
In 2001 she completed a research Masters in Philosophy at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University where the title of her thesis was “Three-Dimensional Measurement of Posture and Movements of the Neck, Shoulder and Scapula”.
Judith provides a detailed individual assessment, diagnosis and explanation of the presenting postural problems and how they contribute to pain, discomfort or stiffness. She then uses Pilates-based rehabilitation exercise to restore and improve movement and to prevent reoccurrences. She has a particular interest in the treatment of scoliosis, neck and shoulder pain, and is currently pursuing further study in the area of Ergonomics and Occupational Health.
Judith’s mission is to continue learning, to promote evidence-based practice and improve client treatment outcomes.
