Why did I become a Physiotherapist?

Scoliosis has been a part of my life since the age 12. My curve progressively increased throughout my teenage years and resulted in extensive back surgery in 2013 to fuse and straighten my spine. My scoliosis journey has not been easy but the life lessons I have learnt  have been invaluable. It has taught me resilience, courage, strength and was the reason I became a physiotherapist – to support those in a similar position to where I was. I completed my studies at Bond University and graduated with a Doctor of Physiotherapy in 2014. Since graduating I have had wonderful opportunities working in private practice and now, I’m ready to follow my passion and open a clinic dedicated to patients with scoliosis.

Early in my career as a Physiotherapist, I quickly realised there was a big gap in the conservative management of scoliosis in Australia. Further, there was no scoliosis-specific training available in the country. My drive and passion to find answers and fill this gap in the treatment of scoliosis led me to many wonderful travel opportunities overseas. In 2017, I completed my Schroth certification in Barcelona, Spain and more recently have spent time living and working in Vancouver, Canada as part of the fouding ScoliClinic team. I was instantly drawn to The ScoliClinic’s talented team of therapists, their strong values, and drive to provide the highest quality experience and care for those with scoliosis and other spinal conditions. I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to bring The ScoliClinic’s services to Australia as The Scoliosis Collective and be a part of the team – from the other side of the world!

Whether you’ve just been diagnosed with scoliosis, or have mirrored my experience, or have had scoliosis for many years, I look forward to meeting you and helping you through your journey.

A little bit about me:

I was born in Japan and raised in Australia since age 11. Growing up, I loved the idea of making people feel happy. I became a hairdresser and loved what I did, but after 15 years in the industry I needed something new. Learning massage was a perfect combination of satisfying my fascination towards human body and still be able to help people feel better.

Once I got my Remedial qualification, I went and worked at resort islands in Australia and Maldives where I worked alongside therapists from around the globe. I received hundreds of hours of training at each location, and that’s when I came to an understanding that an effective massage treats both body and mind, and not bound to a label or a category of technique.

What to expect in a treatment session with me:

Expect thorough consultation so we both have good understanding of what style/pressure works best. Slow and repetitive movements to calm the nervous system, and lots of warming up before doing any deep tissue work. My aim is for you to walk out feeling less tense in muscles and feeling calm and restored.

I like explaining why I do certain things so there is no surprise during the treatment, and so my clients know the reason behind some of the techniques.

My massages are always deeply relaxing and rejuvenating, which reflects my belief that ‘in order to relax tensed muscles, you must also relax the brain’. My aim is, by the end of the treatment for you to walk out not only with less tensions in your muscles but also feeling calm and restored in your mind.

The following courses support my practice as a Remedial Massage Therapist:

  • BSPTS Base Course
  • Diploma of Remedial Massage Therapy
