Tell us about your background in physiotherapy:

I graduated as a physiotherapist in 2000 in Hong Kong. After applying what I learned in university into my clients, I realized that I did not have the skillset to fully rehabilitate my clients. There are many aspects of a person’s pain, and I wanted to heal a person as holistically as possible. That led me to acquire a diploma in Acupuncture, a certificate in Pilates, a certificate in Natural Wellness Nutrition, a certificate in cranial sacral therapy, a certificate in pelvis realignment, a certificate in using Biotransducer and Biomodulator, and many more skills.

In the past 11 years, I started to focus on Women's Health physiotherapy due to the lack of service and the great impact treatment has on a woman’s physical and emotional aspect.

I believe that women do not have to suffer in silence anymore. There are solutions for conditions that doctors and peers are too embarrassed to talk about.

What are your interests?

Before my whiplash injury while wakeboarding, I used to windsurf and wakeboard a lot. However, after the incident, I am now doing Tai Chi and meditation instead. I am also a classical music lover and enjoy opera and musical. I am a big foodie who focuses on being gluten-free and dairy-free. I am up to date with all the new restaurants, and educate chefs into this healthier diet.

Tell us about a life-changing experience or adventure you’ve been on.

I was part of the Equestrian Events of the Olympic Games in 2008 which was held in Hong Kong. Due to my fluency in Spanish, English, and Cantonese, I was responsible to translate and facilitate any needs or requirement for Spanish speaking players and teammates. It was a once in a lifetime experience to be able to participate in the Olympic Games as a linguist and to be up close and personal with the players and their horses.

What is your area of expertise?

I am greatly drawn to treating women’s health issues including stress incontinence, urge incontinence, and prolapsed pelvic floor by combining electrical stimulation, reformer-based Pilates exercises, diet and lifestyle changes. This combination provides the best outcome.

I treat pre-natal and post-natal sacroiliac joint instability and pain by realigning the pelvis and providing a brace or taping. For post-natal sacroiliac joint pain, I use acupuncture in my physiotherapy treatment as well in order to release the deep muscles spasm that may contribute to the misalignment.

For pre-natal and post-natal diastasis rectus (abdominal separation), I conduct specific reformer-based Pilates exercise in order to strengthen the core muscles.

Aside from women’s health, I also specialise in conditions such as tempero mandibular joint (TMJ) pain, headache, scoliosis and Bell's palsy by combining acupuncture, manual therapy, specific scoliosis stretches and the Biomodulator and Biotransducer.

What is the most fulfilling part of this job?

To be able to see mothers return to their normal daily activities and sports without any “embarrassing incidents”.

What Our Clients Say

I saw Maritza for my tennis elbow pain. Not only did she fix my elbow with acupuncture, ultrasound, and manual technique; but she also made me realize that my hunched shoulder was contributing to my elbow pain. I can now go back to playing sports without pain.

Stephanie Li

My physiotherapist is Maritza Lue. I got neck and back pain issues and Maritza has been treating me for more than 5 years. She is very precise with her treatment and would always use mild while very effective approach to treat my issues. She is now teaching me Pilates to strengthen my muscle and it really works. I am very confident to say I am in a very good hand.

Amy Cheung

I had a back injury a few months ago and went to see Maritza. She is thorough and very effective. In addition to realigning my back and pelvis, she also showed me simple exercises that I can do at home to help with the recovery. I always know I am in very safe hands with Maritza.

Barbara P.

After delivering my baby via c-section my incision had a lot of difficulty healing well and I had abdominal split / diastasis recti. I previously went to other physios to help with recovery but wasn't making very much progress. Another physiotherapist recommended that I see Maritza Lue as she specializes in women's health and helpful with post partum recovery, in particular she would be especially helpful for managing the scar tissue/pain I was experiencing since she is well equipped with the right tools. Maritza takes time to understand the issues and problems I'm experiencing and explains to me why I am experiencing these issues and their connection. She takes a careful and considered approach towards putting together a recovery plan and is very helpful with explaining how the recovery plan works and the steps we are taking. Maritza has guided and helped me with re-building my abdominal strength and more importantly fixing my scar tissue. The pain I previously felt in the incision area has dramatically decreased and I have gradually got my strength back. I'm happy there is someone like Maritza who understands the post partum issues I'm experiencing and more importantly able to help me with these problems.

Camilla W.

Maritza has helped me a lot in improving my condition on abdominal separation via personalized pilates. I’m very satisfied with her professional service.

Cassie Heung

I consulted Maritza due to my back and knee pain caused by pregnancy at around Week 25+. She examined my situation and helped massage my pain areas. The situation esp. knee pain has been greatly improved after a few sessions. She has also been giving me professional prenatal advice all along as I attempted to do some prenatal pilates to help with my labour and further ease my pain. I would recommend her to anyone who has limited knowledge on what to do for prenatal exercise, esp first time mom like me.

Cynthia L.

My physiotherapist is Maritza Lue. I am suffering from postnatal low back pain and abdominal separation.

I am satisfied with the service here and see the improvement in my situation.

Maria Y.

I had back pain that persistently bothered me after giving birth. I knew I needed professional help, and I'm so grateful that I came across Maritza's CV online which led me to her at Prohealth Sports & Spinal! Maritza is highly proficient and specialized in women's health, and is the expert and trusted advisor that will offer you tons of help for a wide spectrum of issues that one pregnant women may face in life. She not only relieved my back pain but also trained me with Pilates that would help rebuild my core muscles and ultimately cure the back pain. I had such a great experience with Maritza - only after 5 Pilates sessions, I lost 2cm in waist circumference and 0.6cm in depth of abs separation. I greatly recommend Maritza, and I would definitely go to her earlier next time when I plan to have the second baby!

Martina Y.

I went to see Maritza for my post-natal recovery. She is very professional on this area while being very nice to her patient. I got a lot of related knowledge from her and my lifestyle changed based on her advise. Thanks!

Miki D.

I am so glad that Maritza helped me navigate through my pregnancy and postpartum pain the past year. I was first referred to her by my OBGYN to treat my pubic bone pain at my third trimester - with the ultrasound treatments and Pilates exercise, it alleviated the pain that kept me awake at night. She is very knowledgeable and is definitely an expert in this field. I highly recommend Maritza as a physiotherapist for any women’s health issues!

Monique S.

Maritza Lue has been helping me with various injuries in more than 10 years. Most recently, I have a deteriorating problem with my neck/shoulder due to the poor posture and the lack of particular stretching after my bike training for triathlon. I have visited her for about 10 sessions and the recovery has been more than significant. There are 2 major aspects that I think Maritza stands out. (1) Her communication skill is exceptional. Maritza is always very candid in her assessment and make sure I have a full understanding of the situation. This aligns expectation of how the process should be and ensues my commitment in the rehab. This is also vital in injury prevention in the future. (2) Her treatment process is dynamic and "bespoke". She always "mix and match" various methods/focus dynamically in different stages of the treatment. Adjustments are being made diligently according to how my body responds. She always assesses carefully how the progress is before fine tuning for the next session. In short, she is far more than fixing an injury, she is enhancing my overall healthiness according to my lifestyle and the sports I would like to continue to engage.

Mr. A

Maritza is a highly trained and dedicated professional! She specialises in all areas of women’s health and thus fills a much needed gap in Hong Kong’s medical care system. I had a weak core and pelvic floor issues and Maritza was able to address these immediately. Her treatment protocol together with her caring and compassionate attitude have improved and strengthened my condition dramatically. I would recommend Maritza in a heartbeat to anybody needing help with health issues

Ms. Chris

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Maritza's professional treatment for my problem of urinary incontinence. After 8 weeks of physiotherapy provided by Maritza, my problem has improved a lot! Also, I'm happy to find that my waist measurement has reduced by 5 cm in one month. She used different methods, such as pelvic floor electric stimulation, Pilates, fat burning exercise and home exercises. The treatment is very effective!

Ms. Tang

I started seeing Maritza for pregnancy-related back pain. My back pain started very early on in my pregnancy, I was just 17 weeks along. I began doing Pilates exercises with Maritza 2 to 3 times a week to help strengthen my back and core. She also taught me exercises to do at home to help improve my condition. Our goal was to also prevent further abdominal separation (Diastasis recti). Within 3 weeks I had very little to no back pain! Maritza is an expert in women’s health and prenatal/postnatal related treatments. Highly recommend!

Nicole Allyse Stroud

I am seeing Maritza for my post-natal back pain, abdominal separation, and misaligned pelvis. My child is already 2 years old but Maritza can still fix me with acupuncture, manual therapy, and reformer Pilates. She is extremely knowledgeable about pregnancy-related conditions. I wish I have come to her sooner!

RuiHua Luo

I am seeing Maritza Lue for lower back pain, she has been treating me with physio like massage, and heat as well as strengthening my core with the reformer. This has helped me immensely as I am pregnant as well so was in a lot of pain! Very happy to have found her to help me with my back  

Sarah Holder

Had several physio sessions with Maritza to improve my sciatica, which involved doing some core muscle exercises, massages and pilates. She was very professional and patient, my situation greatly improved.

Vivian and Johnny

After delivering my baby via c section, I was really worried about my abdominal muscle separation as my belly was still really big after 3 months and could feel that my core muscles were really weak.After searching online for alternative solutions other than surgery, I am so glad that I’ve met Maritza as she specializes in women’s health and have a lot of experience with postpartum recovery. She is very thoughtful and caring and understands what I need and have put together a recovery plan.My waist circumference have decreased by 4cm in 1 month. And the depth of my abdominal separation has decreased by half. The results are amazing and most importantly I have learnt a lot about my situation and what I could do to improve. In general I really enjoyed the process working with Maritza. Highly recommend!

Wingka L.

I have been seeing Maritza for back pain for a couple of months now. Not that she has healed it but she also corrected my imbalanced pelvis and shoulders on a regular basis. She is a godsend!

Yuka and Ansel

I’ve been seen Maritza for right hip pain and abdominal separation during pregnancy. Maritza had given me treatments and home exercises and I had significant improvement only after two sessions. I’m very satisfied with the treatments she offered and she’s very caring for my needs.

Agnes Chen

Maritza has helped me a lot with my abdominal separation. Once I started using the reformer for Pilates exercise, there was obvious improvement in the second week. My condition was severely separated, but now it has greatly improved to only mild separation. Thank you for all the professional suggestions. I am very satisfied with the result.

Alice Ma

I’ve been seeing Maritza for Pre Natal Pilates since i was 4 months pregnant. My abdominal separation was moderate (about 2 fingers), but it hasn’t got worse since then and the shape of my bump looks tighter. I’ll keep coming until I deliver, as well as Post Natal Pilates.

Alissa Yu

I’ve been suffering from Plantar Fasciitis for almost 4 months now. With the help of my physiotherapist Maritza, I’m feeling much better. She uses deep friction massage, ultrasound, acupuncture with electricity, and exercise to treat me. Now I can walk fast and run a bit without pain. I’m very satisfied!

Amy Realin

I went to see Maritza Lue 4 months after I gave birth to treat my abdominal separation. Maritza was very professional and used ultrasound to assess the depth and severity of the separation. I train with her in the Pilates gym 1-2 times a week to strengthen my core. She also gave me some home exercise to do and adjusted the exercises for my ability. After two weeks I begin to feel my core is getting stronger and I am confident that Maritza can help me to heal my condition.

Ann Wee

I am coming to pro health and I’m seeing Maritza for my scoliosis. She is treating me with reformer Pilates and acupuncture. I’m feeling much better after my sessions.

Calista Rosboch

I have been seeing Maritza for physio and pilates. She has been amazingly caring, informative and clear in her approach to what plan is the most suitable for the condition. So, it is the very early stage of treatment so I look forward to continuing this review with an update of how the treatment helped and hopefully solved the reason for first going to Sports and Spinal. I highly recommend Martiza!!

Carlene Hamley

After a long history of twisting my ankle and falling over, I went in with both old and new injury pains in my ankles, wrist and lower back. Maritza is not only address the current issues, she is also able to pinpoint some root causes to prevent future injuries. She employs modern techniques as well as acupuncture with a ‘Midas touch” – hitting pain points right on target. She has also given me a stretching and rehab plan to work on things at home. Her professionalism, sincere care and personable character make an amazing combination!

Cora Ha

I received physio treatment from Maritza Lue for a persistent over-active bladder. She helped me to understand my diet (the “trigger” foods) and treat it from a myriad of different angles, and whilst it is hasn’t been an “overnight” fix she has helped me feel confident, and in control of my body again. For this I am indebted to her and grateful beyond words.

Hannah Keegan

I was 6 months pregnant when I went to see Maritza, who specializes in women’s health including pre and post-natal issues. I was experiencing pelvic pain at the time. Maritza promptly diagnosed the problem and started me on pre-natal pilates a few times a week. Now just after 2.5 weeks, not only is my pain mostly gone, but I also feel lighter and more mobile, and my belly size (from abdominal separation) is under control. I wish I had addressed the issue and come to see her earlier. Thank you Maritza!

Happy Mum

Maritza Lue is very professional. She has helped me to release my back pain by doing Pilates and acupuncture. I can see the significant improvement.

Iris Tam

Went to Maritza Lue to address years-long chronic knee pain that’s been exacerbated by multiple sports including Olympic weightlifting and climbing. She treated it with ultrasound, heat therapy and acupuncture and has drastically reduced that pain. I have since been able to lift without pain, regained single leg pistol squats and improved recovery in between workouts. Very satisfied!

Kalayan Magno

I am seeing Maritza for abdominal separation during pregnancy. I am doing prenatal Pilates with a reformer. I am extremely satisfied!

Katrina Lee

I’ve been with Maritza Lue for lower back pain and abdominal separation during pregnancy. At my first appointment, Maritza took the time to diagnose my symptoms and explain in detail all the changes that were taking place in my body. The pre-natal pilates sessions were great but most importantly she really got to know my lifestyle out of the sessions and gave me things to work on at home when I wasn’t able to make a session. I’m leaving Hong Kong and really hope to find someone like her in the UK to help me get through the rest of my pregnancy!

Lisa Auld

I have been delighted with the results of physio, after having a painful shoulder for years it is finally pain free! Maritza Lue has worked wonders on my frozen shoulder. She manipulated it, used ultrasound, heat treatment and acupuncture (with electric). She also gave me home exercises to complete the process. I am so happy she was recommended to me, that I now want to recommend her to YOU!

Lorna Mcclure

My physio, Maritza was really empathetic and has been helping me with my scoliosis and the subsequent back and shoulder aches. It’s still a work in progress, but I’ve been really impressed by her knowledge around this condition and her ability to give more specialize care.


I’ve seen Maritza for Pre and Post-Natal back pain. She has done spinal realignment, pelvic realignment and Pilates. She has been very thorough and thoughtful with her care. I have been extremely satisfied with her treatment and would strongly recommend her to anyone dealing with musculoskeletal pain.

Susan Moriarty

Maritza is very experienced and professional. She has helped me to release my left ankle pain caused by a serious sprain and fracture during a soccer game. Together with the assistance of the well equipped facilities, I have been recovering in a speedy pace.

W Ron

I am seeing Maritza for my low back pain. Treatment included deep friction massage, ultrasound, and pelvis realignment. Now she is teaching me Reformer Pilates. She is very good and nice and professional!
