Physiotherapist / Clinic owner

Ietje graduated in Amsterdam in 1981. Her experience includes mission hospitals in Botswana and Africa, acute hospitals in Switzerland and private practice in Holland.

She arrived in NZ in 1989 and started this clinic, Physical Sense. Since then she and her clinic have specialised in the treatment of OOS, chronic pain, headaches, TMJ, and stress management. Her treatment protocol was published by ACC and OSH in 1997.
