Susie joined the Physiocise team in 2011. She is highly qualified with two degrees from the University of Sydney - Exercise Sports Science and Physiotherapy. During university she worked as part of the medical team for Sydney University Rugby team with taping and injury management. Since graduating, Susie has worked in the public hospitals setting and sports physiotherapy private practices across Sydney and London. From this she gained up to date continuing education, studying acupuncture and specialising in rehabilitation for low back pain and exercise therapy.
With such experience she is ideally placed to be at the forefront of our Athletes program. Her background skills in exercise therapy and physiotherapy help her analyse weakest links in posture, movement patterns and persistent injury when participating in their chosen sports. Her work is not limited to athletes, as her empathetic and caring nature make her ideally placed to work with people of all ages.
Being an asthmatic, Susie also has a special interest in breathing mechanics, and controlled breathing exercises. Since working at Physiocise, and studying Buteyko clinic breathing/oxygen performance courses, she has helped to cure her own asthma. Combining the breathing exercises as an Oxygen Advantage instructor with core strength, she can help combat asthma, breathlessness or allow athletes to attain maximum exercise performance.
2017 saw Susie take on a new role - helping with the business development, marketing, social media and digital content for the Physiocise resources. Her artistic eye combines with constant research to keep us all on the pulse with her inspiring, informative and beautiful posts. And we love that she can organise a very fine Physiocise team event too!
