Emma completed her Bachelor of Physiotherapy at Curtin University and over the years has developed an increasing interest in musculoskeletal physiotherapy.
Emma spent most of her school years dancing and competing, with a lot of time spent training in ballet which sparked her interest in the human body and how it can train to perform at elite levels. Furthermore, Emma has spent the past 3 years working at North Beach Football Club which continued to fuel her interest in dealing with musculoskeletal injuries and overcoming them to return to sport.
In her spare time, Emma enjoys camping, keeping active at the gym, swimming, and of course dancing.
Tom completed his Bachelor of Science (Physiotherapy) at Curtin University. His main passion in physiotherapy is helping to reduce his patient’s pain, injury prevention and helping to problem-solve chronic conditions.
Tom loves to see his patients improve session by session and helping to empower his patients to self-manage their body outside of the clinic. Tom is keen to help everyone experiencing long-standing injuries, sporting injuries, rehabilitation post-surgery and people looking to level up their physical attributes. He has a good understanding of a variety of sports and common injuries that’s arise with these sports and is keen to help with any of them.
Tom has played high level of competitive Australian football with Subiaco and East Perth football club and is currently playing with North Beach Amateur Football Club. This has provided Tom with a great understanding of the sporting body and mind and how to optimise his patients for return to sport. In Toms spare time he enjoys cycling, a round of golf and surfing in his free time.
