Kush Jayawardane


Education: B.App.Sc (Physio), AWF Weightlifting Coach, Musculoskeletal Segmental & Dry Needling through the APA (2016)

Kush is an experienced physiotherapist from Sydney, Australia. After graduating from the University of Sydney, she spent 2 years in Regional NSW working with a variety of musculoskeletal and sports injuries.

After first learning about Dr. Linda-Joy (LJ) Lee, the Thoracic Ring Approach™ and ConnectTherapy™ Kush was blown away by how effective LJ’s methods were. Kush went on to commit herself to the ConnectTherapy™ approach, by completing the ConnectTherapy Series in 2017 and Part 4 in 2018 to further her understanding of the method. To truly hone her skills and define her practice, Kush opened her own Physiotherapy Clinic in 2016 in Sydney.

Kush has always been involved with sport from a young age playing representative hockey, she now competes in Olympic Weightlifting and at a national level. Kush has a large amount of experience with strength and power athletes.

Prior to her move to Vancouver in December 2018, Kush worked as a weightlifting coach and co-owner of the Strength & Conditioning gym RAW Barbell Club in Sydney. As a physiotherapist she has also worked with these athletes from an injury management and performance perspective. She enjoys looking at the finer detail of movement, and biomechanics to improve mobility and positioning, performance, strength and power output. Looking at the body as a whole, and not only the symptomatic area has truly transformed her practice and results with clients. At Synergy she hopes to continue this work and transform each person’s experience in their own body to a very positive one!
