Liandi vd Westhuyzen
(BSc Physio Stellenbosch, OMT1)

I am from Stellenbosch originally, where I completed my degree in BSc. Physiotherapy.  Since then I have also completed a post graduated diploma in Orthopaedic Manual Therapy (OMT) which compliments me specializing in the fields of sport injuries and orthopedic conditions.

I have completed my community service year in rural Mpumalanga, whereafter I worked abroad in the UK as a physiotherapist gaining experience in a variety of ffields.  I had the privilege of working and gaining experience in a variety of practices in the Western Cape, before opening my own in June 2013.  I have never looked back.
I enjoy trail and road running, as well as mountain biking and have recently added triathlon to the list.  I love the energy surrounding events, but mostly it is about enjoying being outside in nature with family and friends.
I believe in a healthy lifestyle, where balance is key.
