Our Team at Life Ready Warwick
Since completing her physiotherapy degree at Curtin University, Féline has worked extensively in the private practice setting and enjoys treating a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions and working with people from all walks of life.
Féline is trained in dry needling and also has a special interest in exercise rehabilitation and Pilates. She has completed a comprehensive Pilates training course and uses these skills to address the cause of her clients’ pain, particularly those with more chronic conditions.
Féline devises individualised plans for her clients to ensure they are working towards their specific goals and gets a real kick out of seeing them reach a stage of independent management and moving them towards their best quality of life.
Outside of work, Féline enjoys keeping fit, getting creative in the kitchen, catching up with pals and spending some downtime with her boys (husband Daniel and two cats, Bruce and Walter).

Chris completed his physiotherapy degree at Curtin University, after finishing both a Bachelor of Science and a Graduate Diploma in Rehabilitation at the University of Western Australia.
He was born in Scotland and moved to Perth at the age of three, and now very much considers Australia “home”.
Chris loves meeting new people, and enjoys the challenges involved in diagnosing and treating various different presentations. He feels a large sense of satisfaction and reward as a result of seeing the impact of treatment for an individual’s progress and overall outcome.
“Knowing that I can directly impact an individual’s life, as well as promote healthy way of living is very satisfying”.
Chris has a keen interest in sports physiotherapy, as well as chronic conditions, and developing comprehensive exercise regimes individually tailored to the individual’s presentation.
Outside of work, Chris gets amongst any activity involving the ocean and exercise! He regularly plays basketball, surfs and any opportunity of free time, he’ll head down south to Margaret River or Dunsborough.
Chris Hardie’s profile
“I always knew that I wanted to be in the business of helping people, whether that be from volunteering, working in healthcare or even teaching. I had a keen interest in the human body and the power of movement and found it incredible that pain and pathology could be cured with nothing other than healing hands! I think my true passion for physiotherapy developed when studying in university and learning just how amazing (and complex) the human body could be.”
Though he was born in Canada, Richard and his family moved to Perth when he was just one year old, leading him to complete his physiotherapy degree at Curtin University, graduating in 2011.
A true “people person”, Richard loves to talk to people and learn about their lives. “I value people who value people and I love that through being a physiotherapist I can help others on a day-to-day basis. I like that I can educate and empower those who are struggling in pain and that my knowledge can be of assistance. I love that I can use a diverse and varied set of skills everyday including communication, manual therapy and Pilates and specific exercise prescription.”
He finds it fascinating that manual therapy can be used so broadly and in different ways to help people and thinks it is such a critical part of a healing experience.
He has a keen interest in assessing and treating spinal pain – lower back pain and neck pain and likes that these conditions can sometimes be complex, require outside of the box thinking and most often than not, involve a combination of his two greatest physiotherapy joys – manual therapy and Pilates/exercise. He also enjoys treating shoulder pain and understanding its surrounding pathologies.
Outside of work Richard likes to be outdoors in the sunshine and fresh air, either jogging along the river or just enjoying a summer picnic! He also loves to cook (and even more so to eat) and often on a weekend, you catch him in the kitchen trying out new recipes, whipping up a cake or baking bread! He will happily spend the whole day making delicious treats and in a truly dedicated form and as a labour of love, his longest recipe once took three days!

Jaine completed her massage therapy studies at Evolve College in Leederville, after a desire to work in an environment where she could endeavour to make people feel better about themselves.
She spent her younger years growing up in Kalgoorlie, and moved to Perth in her teens.
She loves remedial massage therapy for the fact that it is such a positive experience for her clients, that they are happy or happier when they leave and that she can have a positive impact on their wellbeing.
Jaine has a strong empathy for people with tension headaches and postural related tension, but is skilled in all areas of remedial massage therapy including pregnancy massage, sports massage, trigger point therapy and relaxation.
