Lindsay Geddes is a senior therapist at Synergy Physio & Pilates. As a Dr. Linda-Joy Lee ConnectTherapy Certified Practitioner, Mentor & Assistant, Lindsay not only offers her clinical expertise in treating patients, but also oversees the in-house Residency Program run to support Synergy therapists and also mentors numerous external therapists.
With a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from Vancouver’s UBC and previous experience in personal training, Lindsay developed an early passion for what motivates people to move, and how their movement strategies can either support or hinder a person’s ideal experience in their body. A self-proclaimed “goal setting addict” Lindsay has personally found passion in long distance running, cycling, triathlon, yoga, Pilates and resistance training.
During and after completing her Masters of Physiotherapy at the University of Sydney, Australia Lindsay was involved in rugby, working with teams at the local club and provincial team levels. This is where Lindsay gained extensive experience and interest in acute concussions and on-going post concussive symptoms as well as almost every other acute injury possible!
However, it wasn’t until Lindsay began her journey studying and practicing in the models of the Integrated Systems Model (Lee & Lee), ConnectTherapy (Lee, LJ) and the Thoracic Ring Approach™ (Lee, LJ) that she realized that challenges recovering from injuries involve your whole body – not just the region that was injured. Lindsay now uses ConnectTherapy, a whole body, whole person approach to get you back towards your pre-injury self.
Since completing her Physiotherapy degree Lindsay has completed her Intermediate Exam through the Orthopaedic Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, and received her Certificate of Anatomical Acupuncture through the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute (AFCI). This allows Lindsay to incorporate a high level of manual therapy and acupuncture or dry needling into her practice.
Lindsay has also completed Clinical Pilates Instructor Training with Calibrate. Now, in collaboration with Dr. LJ Lee and the team at Synergy Physio & Pilates, Lindsay incorporates the innovative ConnectPilates™ approach – a new Pilates method based on the constructs of ConnectTherapy – into her treatment sessions. This may include adjunct exercises, or focused ConnectPilates sessions using traditional Pilates equipment integrated with hands-on ConnectTherapy and Thoracic Ring Approach techniques.
With two toddlers at home, Lindsay’s current extracurricular activities include tidying up, piggy back rides and finger painting. When she escapes the clinic or home, you can find her running, cycling, hiking, swimming, camping. Oh and she’s a mean knitter, crocheter and kombucha maker.
