Having always been very observant, watching the way people move in day-to-day life and trying to figure out why they were different, Rodney started studying anatomy in school and with this, combined with his love for health and sports, his career into physiotherapy commenced!
Rodney completed his physiotherapy degree at Curtin University, and also holds a Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science as well as his Certificates III and IV in fitness, with an extensive personal training history.
Since graduating, Rodney has worked exclusively in private practice physiotherapy and enjoys treating a vast array of musculoskeletal injuries and disorders and the challenges and different presentations of helping his clients through to recovery. He has a particular interest in treating spinal pain, neck and lower back pain, shoulder pain and dysfunction, sports injury rehabilitation as well as pre and post surgical rehabilitation.
“I have the best job in the world! I get to use my hands and exercise knowledge to empower people to live their best life with the greatest level of freedom in movement to do the things they love. I get to see the wonder in their eyes when they experience a drastic change in their range of pain free movement, or can do something they couldn’t physically achieve before.”
He has also undertaken additional training in dry needling and the Clinical Pilates method.
Rodney grew up in Zimbabwe, and he and his family moved out of necessity, but now believes they couldn’t have landed in a better spot than Perth, and his very proud and grateful to call Australia “home”!
Away from the treating table, Rod enjoys working out at the gym, playing his guitar, off-roading and camping, hanging with his dog Jaeger, and getting to the beach. He also loves to challenge himself physically in the gym lifting weights, bodyweight or running, swimming or paddling.
Rodney Gass’s profile
After rupturing her ACL, Julia went to a physiotherapist for rehab and throughout her rehabilitation, she realised how important physios are in helping people get back to their normal function. This experience developed into a desire to want to help people achieve the best version of themselves.
Julia is a perpetual student, and enjoys anything and everything to do with anatomy and function. This, combined with her love for problem-solving, exercise and helping people has led her on the path to physiotherapy. She is a strong believer in collaborating with, and empowering patients to achieve meaningful goals through utilising exercise based rehab.
“Every patient is so different in their presentation and personality. I like being able to work with patients to figure out what is their underlying issue, and then structuring a program to help them achieve their goals.”
Julia completed her physiotherapy degree at Curtin University, graduating with First Class Honours. Additionally, she is currently undertaking a PhD project examining the use of virtual reality for the assessment of concussion.
Julia’s clinical passion is in sports-related injury management and prevention, particularly lower limb and shoulder injuries. She also enjoys working to correct motor control impairments through utilising the full kinetic chain in a sport specific approach.
When she manages to find some free time, Julia loves anything to do with the outdoors and staying active – kayaking, SUP boarding, mountain biking, diving, hiking, rock climbing – she loves it all! Most importantly however, she loves to indulge in a good coffee while walking her dog, Leo.

Crystal first completed her Certificate IV in Massage Therapy at the NSW School of Massage in 2016 whilst she was in Sydney. She then completed her Diploma in Remedial Massage at The Australian College of Eastern Medicine in Perth in 2019.
Since completing her studies, Crystal has worked on a wide demographic of clients including athletes and office workers. She is fascinated by bodywork and has a keen interest in sports-related injuries. She also enjoys treating neck, shoulder and back pain and RSI injuries and currently, she is investigating lymphedema and the benefits of manual lymphatic drainage, having completed the Manual Lymphatic Drainage course with Vodder International. Crystal is also trained in dry needling and cupping therapies.
“I’m very interested in bodywork and get fascinated by the range of musculoskeletal injuries and disorders that are presented in clients. I enjoy meeting lots of different people and helping them with those issues.”
Crystal leads an active lifestyle and is also a yoga, acroyoga and mat Pilates instructor, so when she’s not treating, you’ll find her either deeply contorted on her yoga mat, suspended in the air by someone else or lifting others on her hands and feet! One may also find her getting her happy feet going by dancing jazz, ballet, contemporary or the Argentinian Tango. She’s also been bitten by the travel bug!
