Expert Team

Our Physiocise Team have outstanding academic ability, finely honed diagnostic skills, excellent teaching ability and a strong commitment to empowering clients to improve their health and wellbeing.

Led by the inimitable Melissa Partington their training continues every day of every week as they participate in seminars, prac meetings, workshops and one on one meetings, all aimed at cultivating a team that is at the cutting edge of professional evidence based practice.

An indication of the value Physiocise places on our team is that we have minimal staff turnover. Many of our staff have been with us between 10 and 15 years and thrive in an environment that supports and values their roles not only as physiotherapists but as mothers, wives and community members.

Our FOUNDER and Creative Director

Anna-Louise Bouvier created Physiocise in 1995, starting with one class a week at the Cammeray Golf Course. Physiocise evolved from a vision for a medically supervised, evidence based program for chronic back pain.

Anna-Louise sold the operational side of the practice to Melissa in 2010 but remains heavily involved in the behind the scenes development of educational materials including videos, books and online tools . She has now created the corporate Happy Body At Work wellbeing program, which is an innovative joint venture with the ABC. While a combination of this, media and speaking commitments take up much of her working life, Physiocise remains her passion and she still devotes a great deal of time and energy to the evolution of the program.

In 2010 she became Director of Physiocise Sydney and has overseen the growth and development of the two practices with great success. She is a brilliant organiser, motivator and leader and has the strongest commitment to maintaining the exceptional standards of our service delivery both internally and externally.
