Lynn Brandon completed her degree in physiotherapy at the University of British Columbia, graduating with honours in 1986. Over the past 33 years, her experience working in hospital and private practice has allowed exposure in many areas of physiotherapy. In 1994 she co-founded Charlottetown Physiotherapy where she was able to expand her skills in the area of sports and work injury management as well as continued post-graduate training in acupuncture. In 2001, after completing all the courses available through the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute in Toronto, she became certified to practice acupuncture. In 2017, she added IMS to her 'tool kit' with certification through the UBC Gunn IMS program and has found both IMS and TCM Acupuncture to be very effective adjuncts to her practice.
Lynn volunteered with the Sharks Swim Team as Meet Manager and dry-land training as a Pilates Teacher. She has volunteered as a guest speaker for a number of organizations over the years, which has allowed her the privilege of sharing her expertise with others with the intent of passing along some information people can find useful in their everyday life. Lynn is the past President of the Rotary Club of Strathcona Sunrise (2011-2012) and past president of the Comox Valley Hospice Society (2016-2017). When she is not working, Lynn volunteers her time doing trail maintenance and building, and enjoys mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, snowshoeing and skiing.
Lynn's interest in fitness and living an active lifestyle evolved from her years growing up in the Comox Valley where the outdoor pursuits of hiking, cycling and water related activity were an integral part of childhood. Together with many years playing volleyball, these things played an important role in shaping her pathway in life. For several years, Lynn was a Course Instructor for Fitness Leaders. For 33 years she has been teaching fitness, initially as an Aerobics Instructor and ACE certified Personal Trainer becoming certified with STOTT Pilates in 2002. She holds STOTT Certification in Matwork and Reformer, as well as Advanced Certification and specialized training for Injuries and Special Populations. Lynn has found Pilates to be a good fit with her paradigm of holistic practice and is a lovely complement to all other forms of exercise. Her unique blend of warmth, sensitivity and positive energy provides clients with a full spectrum of spiritual, intellectual and physical enhancement.
In 2005, Lynn and her family returned home to the Comox Valley where she founded Bodyworx Physiotherapy and Bodyworx Pilates & Health located at a beautiful facility known as the Manor, overlooking the Comox harbor and mountains. In addition to innovations such as a fully equipped Pilates studio, Lynn's clinic offers Scoliosis/Scheuermann's Kyphosis Management, Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy, Neuroproprioceptive Taping (Kinesio taping), Acupuncture, IMS, Laser, Women's and Men's Pelvic Health, Vestibular Rehabilitation, and Balance Retraining Therapy, Chronic Pain Rehabilitation, Functional Movement Screening and Functional Rehab Orthotics.
Lynn enjoys her clinical work and teaching immensely. She finds great joy in sharing her passion with others.
