I’m Linley - your physio, cheerleader and coach!

The real beginnings of my physio journey started with my own back injury. I was told I shouldn’t expect much more from my body than walking or swimming. But I had a niggling belief that my body was more resilient than it was being given credit for.

Since then, I moved into the world of crossfit and my back has consistently become stronger and more capable, and I’ve never looked back.

I like to think of myself as a detective first and foremost - digging into history and lifestyle, to get a clear picture of what factors are contributing to someone’s physical health. I’m curious about the array of factors that affect our physical health (like stress, sleep and lifestyle) and love helping clients move toward a more sustainable way of living and moving.

I love being involved in sport and my community. And I love that this job allows me to help people rediscover their spark!
