SABRINA LA ROSA

Ba.Sc.Kin, R.Kin

Registered Kinesiologist

Sabrina La Rosa has always been interested in movement. As a soccer player from a very young age, she learned about the mechanics of the body and how to use it to improve her game and prevent injuries. Her passion for sport ultimately led her towards a career in kinesiology.
Sabrina’s approach to her practice comes from her understanding of neuroplasticity and the brain’s ability to adapt and grow beyond expectations. She is excited about using this knowledge and her training to help her clients achieve their goals.
She has a knack for making her clients feel special. When working with a client, she is quick on her feet and can change up an exercise based on the client’s abilities and needs that day while still with the therapeutic goal in mind.
