Sophie von Burg
Sophie von Burg graduated from University College London and The Middlesex Hospital School of Physiotherapy in 1995 with a first class honors B.Sc. in Physiotherapy.
After completing her junior outpatients rotations in London, Sophie moved to Hong Kong and joined the physiotherapy department of The Matilda Hospital. She spent a year gaining invaluable knowledge of ante and postnatal physiotherapy as well as general outpatients. During this time she attended a series of courses in the UK about the identification and treatment of movement dysfunction. It was then she decided to specialize in this field.
To this end she completed her B.E.T. Pilates training and has worked with this modality for the last 17 years in Switzerland and Hong Kong. Whilst using this technique she has acted as a clinician in clinical trials and completed postgraduate courses in all biomechanical areas of movement dysfunction. She has also attended courses on the assessment and treatment of gait (walking and running) disorders. Her areas of special interest are dysfunctions of the pelvis and the role primitive reflexes play in the disruption of normal movement.
Sophie assesses an individuals movement patterns, identifies areas of uncontrolled or restricted movement and uses Pilates-based rehabilitative exercise and other movement techniques to teach, correct and facilitate normal movement and the alleviation of postural pain.
In 2010 she set up, with her business partner psychologist Sian Gurney, Walk2Health which provides walking and running clinics in Hong Kong’s great outdoors.
Sophie is a keen triathlete and regularly participates in trail races around Hong Kong.
Sophie’s mission is the pursuit of normal movement.
