Teri Lai

Registered Physiotherapist


Teri graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelor of Science in Nutritional Sciences and a Minor in Human Kinetics. Prior to completing her Masters in Physiotherapy, she worked with the BC Emergency Health Services as a Paramedic and Emergency Dispatcher.

Teri has an extensive background in competitive sports including swimming, waterpolo, basketball and softball. Her experience with sports injuries and work as a paramedic propelled her interest to study Physiotherapy at UBC. Teri is driven by her curiosity and desire to learn more about the body, chronic injuries and movement, and ultimately hopes to empower others with tools to help themselves get stronger and better.

Teri aims to work with her clients to achieve their goals with manual therapy, education, clinical pilates*, dry needling and individualized treatment plans.

During her Masters Program, Teri was the orthopedic club Representative where she hosted and participated in several extracurricular courses to further her skills. Teri is also the Operations Manager for the Steveston location of True Physio + Pilates. As a lifelong learner, Teri plans to continue to take additional postgraduate courses such as manual and manipulative therapy and advanced integrated musculoskeletal programs.

In her free time, you will either find her outdoors playing sports (softball, paddleboarding, tennis, ski/snowboarding) or trying new restaurants in town
