My Story

Early in my career, I worked for some inspirational physios who nurtured my passion for getting to the bottom of a problem. I completed further studies in Exercise and Sports Science, Functional Anatomy, and Biomechanics and since then I am always looking to learn more. I enjoyed being team physio for football and netball clubs and toured with the Australian Ski Team to the World Cup.

I was awarded the title of Specialist Sports Physiotherapist in 1999. 

Always with a thirst for knowledge, I added complementary therapies to Physiotherapy. I have always been interested in treating holistically, meaning the whole body from head to toe, and other systems in the body, including the emotional system (as it affects the physical body). I love helping you adjust your lifestyle for good health, and use complementary therapies including Yoga therapy, Craniosacral therapy, Visceral therapy to treat you using a holistic biopsychosocial approach. 

 

I enjoy treating persistent pain particularly where there has been an accumulation of injuries over years. 

Your physical problems are often multifactorial;  the source of pain is often due to an imbalance elsewhere in the body (besides where you are feeling the pain), and may even lie with emotional or lifestyle causes.

I have had my fair share of injuries. After multiple knee surgeries (from skiing) I had a knee replacement. For years I had managed arthritis with exercise and Yoga.The combination of Physio and Yoga has kept me fit and healthy and enjoying all the things I want to do.  

I’m a mother, a daily yogi, keen gardener, love traveling and most of all getting out into nature.
