Meet Embrace Physiotherapist Alex Harvard Walls

Alex Harvard-Walls

Senior Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist & Women’s Health

Originally, from the UK, Alex has spent the past 13 years as an expat living and working in the Middle East and Singapore. After graduating with a BSc in Physiotherapy from the University of Manchester in 2005, Alex spent the following 3 years working in a big NHS teaching hospital in Liverpool. The wider world beckoned and in 2008 she moved to Doha, Qatar, where she worked for 3 years at Aspetar, a leading specialised orthopaedic and FIFA accredited sports medicine hospital.

In 2011, she found herself on the Little Red Dot, which has been home for the past 10 years. During this time she has been working at another leading private physiotherapy clinic specialising in musculoskeletal Injuries, ergonomics and Women’s Health.

Having 3 children in 4 years opened her eyes to the world of Women’s Health Physiotherapy and, through her own personal experience, is an area that has captured her interest in recent years.

When she is not working you’ll find she is participating in the ultimate team sport… parenting!! As a family, she loves being out and about on East Coast Park at the weekend and takes great pleasure from a glass of prosecco and a meal out with her husband and friends.

Best thing about being a physio?
The beauty of this job is that each day is different – different people with different challenges and different goals. I love the interaction with my patients and the opportunity to exchange notes on new restaurants, holiday destinations as we all experience the trials and tribulations of parenting!

The ultimate highlight of the job for me though is the satisfaction of helping someone achieve their goals and recover from their injury or to optimise their health and well-being.

How do you Embrace Life?
I do my best to embrace life with ‘the glass is half full’ approach and with a smile on my face. Exercises for me plays a key part in enabling me to maintain a positive attitude towards life – Ii ensure that I prioritise this time for myself as it has a knock-on effect in all that I do, both from a personal and professional point of view (plus it’s always nice to escape the circus at home!).

Guilty pleasure?
My guilty pleasure would definitely have to be something food related – food makes me a happy person! A free-flow champagne brunch or a fancy afternoon tea at Raffles would be the ultimate indulgence for me!

Alex enjoys the satisfaction of helping someone achieve their goals, recover from their injury or optimising their health and well-being.

Embrace Physiotherapy is committed to 5 star client satisfaction.

My experience with embrace from start to finish was nothing short of professional, warm and understanding. After my third pregnancy, I had lots of dull, heavy tugging pain low in my abdomen. I had also been suffering for years with urinary hesitancy. Went to so many different doctors and specialists to find out what was causing it, with no luck. It was only when I chanced upon embrace’s blog did I get some insight (or even awareness at all) into women’s pelvic health. I wrote in to enquire, and my worries were met with assurance and suggestions, at no cost. Preet is friendly, approachable and made me feel comfortable throughout what could have been an embarrassing therapy. It was so comforting to finally be heard, understood and not dismissed as “this is normal” the way all the doctors had. No amount of reading up compares to having real time feedback with kegels by a trained professional. 6 months in and I feel a world of difference! If anyone out there feels any less about her body after pregnancy or feels pain or discomfort in any way, or resorted to accepting “this is my new normal”, trust me you’re not alone. If you’re living in the east, I’d recommend embrace physiotherapy. They don’t pressure you to commit to regular sessions at all. No harm giving it a shot!

Was recommended by a friend to embrace physiotherapy, I was having bad recurring blocked ducts/mastitis and was desperate. I’m served by a very welcoming and friendly counter lady (forgot to get her name) and my therapists Preet and Brenda are very professional and helpful, they helped get my stubborn blocked ducts cleared in 3 sessions. Preet also referred me to someone who helped with the recurring mastitis. Will probably still experience the same problem if I haven’t visit them, super thankful for the help!

Great service and superior expertise at Embrace Physio! From the moment that you walk in you're greeted with top notch service. Preet and her team of physiotherapists are warm and welcoming, and their knowledge has undoubtedly helped me to treat my post-natal symptoms. My only regret is not knowing about Embrace earlier!
