Owner and Women's Health Physiotherapist
Welcome to Sasoros
Wow 2020, wow!!! All we can say is “wow”. We were all excited that we have come full circle into a new decade, but this decade had quite a surprise for the entire universe. We were introduced to a new deadly virus, COVID-19. We had to show some emotional agility and soldier on. We went into protection mode, we masked up, we sanitised, we washed our hands, we educated!!!
It is unfortunate that this deadly virus has come to disrupt our plans and progress as a healthcare provider. This was caused by numerous factors, such as the lockdown, the travel ban, to mention but a few. This virus is unpleasant, but we must remember we all have a responsibility to protect, educate and guide.
But 2021 comes with increased hope – vaccines have been found and we hope they will be available in Namibia shortly. Let us continue to be hopeful, positive and continue living. Let us fill our calendars with things to do…
We have a lot to do and we are very hopeful…

Specialist treatments I can give for women’s health problems include:

How I can help …
Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function to as near normal as possible after an individual has been affected by injury, illness, or developmental impairment. As a qualified Physiotherapist, I am able to offer a variety of treatments.
Physiotherapy could help in treating the following conditions:
- Sports Injuries
- Post surgical treatment
- Lower Back Problems
- General Joint and Muscle Pain
- Arthritic Pain
- Work Related Injuries
- Falls Prevention Exercises
- Pulmonary Rehabilitation
What to expect from your first session
On your first visit, I will undertake a thorough assessment of your physical condition to establish the cause of the problem. This assessment follows a set of specific questions which will allow me to design a treatment plan for you. The plan may include a mixture of physiotherapy techniques as well as specific exercises.
What I aim to do
- Assess and treat pain and dysfunction
- Education and management of own conditions
- Encourage tissue healing by controlling and reducing pain and inflammation
- Restore normal range of motion by integrating the muscular, joint and nervous systems
- Identify and treat problems and reduce the risk of re-occurrence
