After graduating from a Masters of Physiotherapy at the University of Sydney, Rebecca embarked upon private practice with gusto. Like all of our Physios, Rebecca searches for the root cause of pain by assessing and treating the underlying “drivers” as well as the injury or issue at hand. Rebecca’s bubbly, chatty personality complements the physical therapy she provides through manual releases, Kinesio taping and education.

As a competitive touch football player, Rebecca understands first hand the demands that a beloved sport can have on the body. She balances this active part of her time with cooking and gardening….and a bit of Pokemon hunting.
