When she was watching the Australian Open at just 10 years old, Renee saw a player being assisted by someone. She asked her Dad who that was person was and what they did. Her passion for physiotherapy started then and there, and the rest they say, is history!
After completing her Bachelor of Physiotherapy and Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science from the University of Notre Dame in 2015, Renee has worked extensively in private practice physiotherapy.
“I love being able to educate clients in the simplest of ways. [As physiotherapists], the knowledge we have is more than we realise. To educate clients to understand their condition or lifestyle and to empower them to choose better options, or change their lifestyle to help themselves is really powerful – and the favourite part of my job.”
Renee has completed further clinical training in dry needling, Clinical Pilates, tendinopathies and lumbar spine conditions, and is currently pursing further study into women’s health physiotherapy.
Renee enjoys treating all ages and musculoskeletal injuries and disorders such as ankle injuries, neck pain, back pain and postural conditions, though particularly loves working with children and pre/post natal women with pelvic pain and pregnancy-related issues as she feels it is a neglected part of life for women.
Outside of work, Renee enjoys travelling to beautiful countries, keeping active outside (especially near or on the water) and getting stuck into a good book.

“I love teaching educating my patients about their bodies and how to move them. I love being able to empower them with the knowledge on how to not fear pain, their injury or exercise.”
Liz’s passion for sport and movement led her to work with sports teams including the University Hockey Club, the West Coast Eagles Football Club and the women’s State hockey team, The WA Diamonds. She has been teaching Clinical Pilates since 2014 and enjoys using Pilates to educate patients about their bodies, injuries and how to enjoy a healthy, active life.

Emma completed her studies for remedial massage therapy in the United Kingdom back in 2010 and after moving to Australia in 2014, completed RPL for the Australian Diploma in Remedial Massage.
“I became a massage therapist because I knew I wanted to help people, I just wasn’t sure how exactly! I thought I wanted to be a school teacher to help children begin their path in life, however after incurring a work related injury, I was recommended to have remedial massage treatment. I had never had a massage before and could not believe how much it helped me. I became very interested in how the body works and I realised that this was my way of helping people, to help them feel better and to get them on a path to a better quality of life.”
Since graduating, Emma has worked mostly within a physiotherapy environment and has developed a keen interest in a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries and disorders. She particularly enjoys treating clients suffering from neck, shoulder and back pain and helping pre and post natal mums and mums-to-be.
She loves being about to help people feel better – whether that’s from a pain level, or a movement level, or a positivity level.
“There is nothing more rewarding than seeing that your treatment is helping someone and they are reaping the benefits of a specialised treatment plan.”
Outside of work, Emma loves being outdoors, travelling and making healthy treats!
