Emma Russell
Remedial Massage Therapist

Emma has spent the last four years working and studying in the UK, to become a well experienced Massage Therapist with a wide range of skills and techniques. She has used a number of different styles of massage during her career and likes to work with the client to choose what suits them best, but particularly enjoys deep tissue and rehabilitation massage and the results it achieves.

Before relocating to Perth, Emma ran her own business in the UK and loved being able to really take the time to get to know her clients, through this she was able to really assess their needs and work towards what they wanted to achieve from the treatments. She believes it is important to communicate with and educate the client about the benefits and effects of massage and how it can help improve peoples lifestyles dramatically over time, and also how the clients can continue to help themselves in between treatments. She will continue to put this high level of client care into practice now she is working with Life Ready Physio and is looking forward to meeting her new clients.

Please feel free to drop in to the Scarborough clinic at any time, Emma is more than happy to take time to discuss how massage could be of benefit to you and improve your daily life for the rest of your life.

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.

Lydia Barlow

Fascinated by the human body and passionate about using her knowledge to help people return from pain and injury, Lydia graduated from Curtin University with a degree in physiotherapy and now loves helping the people she works with feel well and live well.

“I also enjoy that as a physiotherapist I am always learning. It is exciting to work in a profession that is always progressing and striving to produce better outcomes.”

Lydia has a keen interest in sports injuries and rehabilitation, having always played sport herself and having spent time either injured or around those injured. She understands how pain and injury can have an impact on people when they can no longer do what they love each day.

She also enjoys the challenge of working with children and adolescents as she finds it takes creativity to deliver effective physiotherapy to a younger population.

Outside of work you’ll catch Lydia spending time outdoors, whether it be early morning swims at the beach, going for long walks or runs, or playing tennis with friends. For years she has enjoyed participating in Perth’s major fun runs and charity events. Lydia recently found passion for the West Coast Eagles and enjoyed cheering along at the games so much that she was inspired to give it a go herself and is now kicking goals in a mixed AFL 9’s tournament with friends!
