Kerry Synnerdahl

Kerry first discovered her love for massage when her daughter began competing in elite level gymnastics. She learned how to use massage to prevent injury, speed up recovery and maximize performance overall – and enjoyed it so much that she decided to train to become fully qualified massage therapist.

Clients value her warm, friendly approach and the genuine interest she takes in their health. She says:

“I really love seeing the improvement in my clients with each treatment. It’s the best part of my job!”

Kerry is a strong believer in a holistic approach to health and is keen to ensure her clients’ massage experience is as relaxing as possible. She sees massage as a way to help people perform to their maximum potential, whether in sport, work or life in general.

With three very active children, Kerry really loves spending any spare time reading, walking along the beach and being with family and friends.

As well as extensive aged care experience, Alana has worked in private practice gaining experience with patients who had been involved in car crashes, work related incidents and various sporting injuries. She also gained experience working in a Back Care clinic for people suffering with chronic back pain.

Vanessa Peatey
Physiotherapist

“When she was growing up, my dad would come home with exercise programs from his various sporting injuries and let me run through them with him, pretending to be his official physio. From then on, I knew that physiotherapy was something that I was really interested in and wanted to do as a career path.”

And that’s exactly what she did, completing her physiotherapy at Curtin University!

Vanessa enjoys the opportunity that physiotherapy brings to change people’s lives and improve their overall health, fitness and wellbeing.

“Whilst we may only be treating a specific area of pain, we are in a position that we can help to motivate people to improve their general wellbeing and lifestyle as a whole.”

She has a keen interest in exercise rehabilitation and its application in a number of populations including chronic pain, the elderly and sporting athletes. She believes that exercise is one of the most powerful and underutilised tools in the management of pain and other medical conditions and enjoys employing it in her individualised treatment plans.

Outside of work with our Mobile team, Vanessa is a fitness enthusiast and is generally in the gym lifting weights two to three times per week. She is also very happy to have a go at any fitness challenge her friends can dream up, including a bit of rock-climbing or some feeble attempts at the ninja warrior course.

Vanessa is also a competitive cheerleader, having recently made a comeback after taking a five year break. Through her many years involved in the sport, her greatest achievements have been competing for her club at the Cheerleading World Championships in the USA (in 2011 and 2013).
