Billy Young

Billy grew up on the coast of southern Victoria and always had a keen interest in all things active – be that individual sports such as surfing, team sports including football or even just getting out and about to enjoy a good hike! Due to his own personal experiences with an array of different injuries and niggles, Billy understands that often these issues are much more than just physical limitations and can weigh heavily on all aspects of life.

Billy graduated from Curtin University in 2018 and having worked exclusively in private practice, has developed an appreciation for physiotherapy management in an array of different presentations and is a huge advocate for promoting healthy habits and self-management.

“I love being able to help people overcome their issues, however nothing makes me happier than when a client has been able to conquer their issues and knows that they were the driving force behind their success”.

Billy has a strong interest in treating a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, particularly shoulder pain and spinal pain.

Outside of work, Billy can be found riding the waves, having loved surfing since the age of 4, playing football and getting outdoors to explore everything the west has to offer. Anything ocean related is right up his alley!

Belinda McGuinness
Currently on maternity leave

Belinda chose a career in remedial massage therapy after loving massages herself and having had a lot of them over the years! As a massage therapist, she loves being able to help people and provide them with relief, both physical and mental.

“I love seeing the difference in clients when they first walk into the massage room versus how they are when they walk out. I love the realisation that you have helped them so positively.”

Belinda loves to employ tissue massage and trigger point therapy techniques for her clients and having been on the receiving end of trigger point therapy, realises how effective it can be at releasing tight muscles and easing pain and discomfort.

Outside of work, Belinda is somewhat of a DYI-er! Along with her husband, she is currently renovating a house and has taught herself (with the help of Google) how to do things like tiling, building kitchens and hang doors.

She also loves to do things from scratch such as making cheese, soap, candles, bread…the list goes on!

Mike Hyland
Remedial Massage Therapist

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!
