A Titled Sports Physiotherapist, Rowan completed his undergraduate physiotherapy training through Curtin University in 2007. After gaining a few years of private practice and sports physiotherapy experience in Perth, his love for travel took him to London, where he lived for four years, working with a mixture of high flying CEOs, diplomats, journalists, actors and dancers. Upon returning to his home town of Perth, Rowan’s curiosity for learning led him to undertake the Masters of Clinical Physiotherapy (Sports and Exercise Major) at Curtin University where he was awarded the Dr Diana Hopper prize for the Sports Masters student.
Rowan has worked in a diverse range of clinical settings – from home visits and aged care, to hydrotherapy and gym rehabilitation. He has worked in both amateur and high level sport, including his current role as head physio for the WA U16s State AFL Team and previous roles with Fremantle Women’s AFLW, AFL Masters WA and with the Perth Lynx in the WNBL. He was also lucky enough to work with elite basketballers during the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in 2018.
During his time in London, Rowan also had the opportunity to provide treadmill running assessments and rehabilitation/return-to-run programs for those looking to get back to running pain free. He gets great satisfaction in providing runners of all abilities with tools to achieve their personal goals.
“I love getting to meet people from all walks of life and enjoy the challenge that diagnosis brings. I love being creative with rehab ideas and find helping people achieve their goals extremely rewarding.”
Beyond his passion for treating runners, Rowan has experience in rehabilitating post-operative shoulder injuries and has a keen interest in ACL rehabilitation and chronic low back pain, which he finds hugely challenging and rewarding at the same time. He prides himself on his ‘hands on’ approach and has additional training in dry needling and spinal manipulation.
Rowan loves the outdoors and loves staying active along Perth’s beautiful coastline with a mixture of swimming, cycling and running. Rowan grew up playing a diverse range of sports and loves to learn about all aspects of human movement. His personal milestones include completing the Copenhagen Marathon, Busselton Half Ironman and playing representative football and cricket.
Rowan’s warm and empathetic nature, combined with his hands on, practical approach ensures the best outcomes for his patients. He is continually seeking to learn and prides himself on high value care and clear communication.
Away from work, Rowan loves to get outside where he can and enjoy a mixture of swimming, cycling or running along Perth’s beautiful coastline. He also keeps his strength up with regular gym and enjoys the occasional call up for social cricket, football or basketball!

Growing up with a sister with disabilities led Mike to want to help and rehabilitate people. Along with being an active person interested in sports, he later chased an opportunity to work with the All Blacks and numerous other elite international sporting teams in remedial massage therapy.
Mike graduated with a Diploma of Remedial Massage at Australasian College of Natural Therapies in Sydney in 2010.
He grew up on the rugged west coast beaches of Auckland, New Zealand and after living and working in the bustling cities of Sydney and London, he and his wife decided Perth was the place to bring up their daughters, moving here in 2016.
“I think that the human touch is a powerful thing, and through using my hands-on skills and knowledge I like helping clients get to the bottom of their niggly ongoing conditions, and bring real change.”
Mike has a keen interest in myofascial release, and is fascinated by the fascial system and how it relates to posture. He enjoys working with neck and lower back issues caused by poor posture and typically incorporates myofascial release and deep tissue techniques into his treatments, in combination with prescribing exercises and lifestyle changes to get lasting results.
Outside of work, Mike loves spending time with his young family, usually heading to the beach most weekends. Being a keen surfer, he tries to sneak in a wave when he can. He also practices yoga and enjoys doing anything that fuels his obsession with health and wellbeing. In a previous life as a teenager, he was the national judo champion of New Zealand!

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!
