Dr Kitiboni Adderley, affectionately known as Kiti, is a holistic physiotherapist, health coach, educator, and mentor who focuses on cancer and diabetic rehabilitation. This dedicated professional has a magic touch, and combined with her knowledge and experience, makes her one of the best manual therapists in The Bahamas. She is highly trained in myofascial release and the McKenzie Method and is also certified in pregnancy massage and Kinesiotaping.
Kiti is a Certified Lymphedema Therapist and a breast cancer and oncology rehabilitation specialist and is considered to be one of the leading physiotherapists in The Bahamas. She is also certified mastectomy breast prosthesis and bra fitter, as well as a custom compression garment fitter.
In 2004, Kiti opened Handling Your Health Wellness and Rehab where she is the senior physical therapist and has a dedicated team of therapists who provide a wholistic therapeutic approach to their patients. Kiti believes that prevention is better than cure and that a wholesome approach of mind, body, nutrition, and spirituality play an important part in a patient’s progress. She has worked with athletes, children, the elderly and persons from all walks of life and her patients benefit from her caring and dedicated manner. Kiti and her team would like people to make them a top choice when it comes to caring giving, recovery and wellness needs.
Their keen work with the lymphatic system, which tends to become compromised due to health issues common with cancer and diabetes, have set them apart from the ordinary. Handling Your Health Wellness and Rehab’s out-patient clinic develops and manages programs and therapies for those who have experienced post-mastectomy, or loss of limb, post-joint replacement, spinal surgery, traumatic injuries, chronic pain, and other serious conditions. Their work also includes sports therapy, home care and perinatal.
Prior to opening her rehabilitation business, Kiti spent four years under the tutelage of Erica Rolle as a Clinic Physical Therapist and workplace wellness educator at Doctor’s Hospital Health Care System in Nassau, Bahamas. There, she also worked in the in-patient setting with those who needed therapy for acute care, and for medical or surgical reasons, as well as in the outpatient setting, with those who had orthopaedic and neurological requirements.

In 2000, she graduated from the University of The West Indies School of Physical Therapy in Jamaica and in 2017, she obtained her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Utica College in Utica, New York.
