From a young age, Marelize was always fascinated by the human body and whilst taking part in a variety of competitive sports, such as dancing, swimming, running and hockey, she developed a new appreciation for how injuries and altered biological functions can change a person’s capabilities of achieving previously set out goals.
Since completing her physiotherapy degree at Curtin University, Marelize has gained a wide range of experience in cardiopulmonary, musculoskeletal, neurological, paediatric, geriatric,
vestibular, lymphatic, hypermobility, fibromyalgia, sport specific, and pre- and post-surgical rehabilitation.
“I love that I get to use my knowledge and skills as a physiotherapist to make a positive influence on someone else’s life, where I don’t just help them get rid of pain or discomfort, but that I get to work with them, and empower them to reach the goals that they have set for themselves. Getting to be a part of someone else’s journey and watching them reach the goals that they have worked for is unbelievably satisfying to me.”
Marelize has also completed additional studies in dry needling and Clinical Pilates to further develop her skills as a physiotherapist and thus provide better care for her clients.
Whilst working in private practice, she has also had the opportunity to work with a variety of sporting clubs (rugby, hockey, AFL, and soccer) as their side-line physiotherapist.
When she’s not a work, Marelize can normally be found at the beach, working in the garden, having a nice quiet evening with her husband, enjoying a board game night with friends or strolling through the aisles of a local bookstore or Bunnings gardening centre.
