Letitia Tautari
Currently on maternity leave

Fascinated as to how the body works, Letitia loves the way that massage therapy can help people achieve a full recovery from pain and enjoys the opportunity to work with clients to help reach their goals and to keep them moving.

Growing up in Greymouth, on the west coast of New Zealand’s South Island, she then completed a Bachelor of Therapeutic and Sports Massage from the Southern Institute of Technology in Invercargill.

Andrew Austin

Andy first gained an interest in physiotherapy after suffering his own knee injury while he was a teenager playing soccer. He had to undergo surgery at a young age and this involved a comprehensive rehabilitation program afterwards.

“I found the recovery process quite interesting and it ultimately started me on the road to becoming a physio.”

Andy grew up in a town called Mullingar in the midlands of Ireland, and lived there until the age of 17 before moving to Dublin to pursue his degree at Trinity College.

He has a keen interest in developing his knowledge around reformer Pilates and the clinical reasoning associated with this. He has done a lot of gym-based rehabilitation with clients and always enjoys reading about the latest research strength and conditioning and performance physiotherapy.

While he’s only been in Perth for a short while, Andy is excited to see all of the sights that WA has to offer. He always open to suggestions about different places worth planning a trip to, so if you’ve got a hot tip, let him know! He likes to maintain his own fitness through strength and conditioing and running and has enjoyed his first attempts at wakeboarding so far!

Andy accompanied Team Ireland to the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janiero and was lucky enough to be able to spend the duration of the Games working in the Olympic Village and getting a great insight into everything that is involved in high level, elite sports physiotherapy and performance.

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!
