Kiran was born and raised in England (U.K). She completed her BSc. (hons) Physiotherapy degree at the University of Southampton in 2008 and has since worked in a variety of settings.
As a new graduate, Kiran worked in the National Health System (NHS) in the UK which broadened her new knowledge and experience in Neurology, Respiratory, Orthopaedics and Musculoskeletal work. Kiran always wanted to travel with her work to experience different ways of Physiotherapy practice in different cultural settings, so, in 2010, Kiran moved to Vancouver Canada, where she worked in Occupational Rehabilitation programmes assisting people to return to work after injury and provided rehabilitation for those living with chronic pain. During her time in Canada, Kiran made the most of her beautiful new setting; spending most weekends exploring, hiking, skiing or simply spending time at the beach. It was here where she also meet her Kiwi husband, and in late 2013 they decided to move to Whangarei, New Zealand. Kiran settled quickly into the laid-back city of Whangarei and has enjoyed the good work-life balance the place offers.
Kiran currently works in a variety of settings; Vocational Rehabilitation which involves assisting people to return to work after injury, workstation assessments, ACC Pain Management Programmes, Musculoskeletal private practice, PINC and STEEL cancer rehabilitation based at Strength + Soul studio. PINC and STEEL Physiotherapy involves one-on-one sessions as well as group exercise classes to enhance recovery and function. Kiran is also an accredited Lymphoedema Therapist which complements her passion for helping those living with Cancer. Kiran’s motto is to “shift illness to wellness.”
When Kiran isn’t working you can find her travelling around the world, hiking, skiing, paddle boarding or knitting at home.
If you or somebody you know would benefit from guided rehabilitation during/after cancer treatment then please contact Kiran at Strength + Soul studio.
