Gwen has been in private practice for 16 years. Coming form the East Rand, she chose to escape to the Eastern Cape to complete her undergraduate degree in Human Movement Science at Rhodes University in Grahamstown. Not ready to return to “Big City Life” she completed her Biokinetics Honours degree at the University of Port Elizabeth.
On her return to Jo’burg, she joined an amazing practice where, through hard work and her love of Biokinetics, she became a part –owner. She later had the privilege of becoming the sole proprietor of the (re-named) Gwen Seviour Biokinetics. She worked out of these premises for 14 years before being approached by Bell, Rogers & Harris to be part of their exciting new venture. This was an opportunity too good to turn down and then decided to move the entire Gwen Seviour practice to ‘Off Nicol’. Over the years she had also been involved in the implementation and development of other Biokinetics centres in the Jo’burg area.
Exercise rehabilitation is Gwen’s passion, along with her interaction with people:
“I love that people trust and entrust me to help them on their road to recovery through education. I am fortunate that I have state-of-the art equipment to help me in my treatment protocols, but I am excited by functional exercise rehabilitation and programme prescription”
Gwen is committed to the evolving world of Wellness- particularly Youth Wellness and Sport and Community Wellness programmes- where she believes education on healthy lifestyle choices- and implementation through appropriate managed exercise prescription- can significantly alter the health profile of the nation! Gwen believes that by being a team player many great things can be accomplished.
Gwen recently acquired the Run Walk for Life Bryanston Branch and has enjoyed the ability to start the growth of a small community and in so doing creating a sense of belonging and giving back to the community a safe place where we all long to be.
