Jenny Huang
Founder & Senior Physiotherapist

Jenny Huang, the founder of HelloPhysio, is an experienced physiotherapist who graduated with magna cum laude in 1997 with her Masters in Physical Therapy degree from the University of Texas Medical Branch (hook ‘em horns).

She has a demonstrated history of working in the hospital & healthcare industry with a specific focus on Injury Prevention, Orthopedic Rehabilitation, Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy, Medicine, and Sports Physio.

Hello Physio Jenny Huang

Jenny’s vision is to build a physiotherapy clinic that raises the bar of patient care, patient experience, and patient empowerment.

She loves learning and teaching and strives to provide the highest standard of patient care and customer service. Prior to conceiving HelloPhysio, she was disheartened by the business-focused practices and felt that patient care should be front and center.

She uses an evidence-based model of treatment of hands-on manual therapy combined with state-of-the-art equipment including Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy, INDABA radiofrequency, Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (radial and focal), and LightSpeed Lift to enhance tissue healing and regeneration to help clients return to pain-free movement.

Jenny is a mom to two awesome teenage kids and loves to run. Not only is she a sports physio but she is a podium-placing athlete – first in some notable races such as 2013 Sundown 100km ultramarathon, 2014 Great Eastern half-marathon, 2015 The North Face 50km ultra duo, 2016 Star Wars race winning the Death Star trophy (you can rub the trophy for good luck at HelloPhysio).
