Toni Maree Neary- Physiotherapist Available Mon,Wed, Fri, Sat
Having suffered chronic migraines, tennis elbow and vertigo throughout my youth, the choice to pursue a career in physiotherapy was not difficult. By overcoming these personal challenges and searching for answers I found that physio was more than a treatment and was a full circle in improving my health.
I am passionate in helping my clients through their individual rehabilitation journeys and I get great satisfaction from seeing the improvements in my clients and in their quality of life following treatment.
My treatments are built around education and in easy to understand language to allow clients to self rehabilitate, understand healing and set them up for a lifetime of physical health.
I have a Masters of Physiotherapy from the University of Sydney, Bachelors of Exercise and Sports Science from the Australian Catholic University. I went on to gain my Advanced Dry Needling Certification and in a couple of months will have my Master certificate. I have gained amazing results with the addition of dry needling.
I have worked as a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness instructor, a massage therapist and worked as both a physio and trainer to a variety of representative sports teams.
Outside of Physiotherapy I enjoy travelling, muay thai, weight training with a strong interest in sports performance nutrition.
