Nick Torrance set out on his physio journey as a rugby physio for numerous senior club and representative rugby union teams. Since this time he has worked in Auckland, London and Sydney treating Wimbledon finalists, All Blacks, Wallabies, Olympians, Politicians and Rock Stars along the way.
His Physio career changed whilst working in London when he was working with Physios who took a different approach to injuries. Their results were significantly better than his so he changed paths from sport and studied with his mentor LJ Lee extensively. This became the foundation for his approach to injury management.
Nick specialises in running and triathlon injuries. He also enjoys treating athletes that are struggling to get back on the field and want a second opinion. He also has a special interest in the foot and ankle.
The "Shoulder Whisperer"
An enthusiastic physio, with a passion for holistic treatment. Gina gained her Physiotherapy degree from the University of Sydney and is currently completing a Masters in Pain Science. She loves learning about the mind and body, how they influence each other and she respects this relationship in her treatments.
She was a keen dancer, and it was here that her fascination with anatomy and movement began. She has a particular love for shoulders, necks and ribs, and has a non-creepy affection for feet too.
When she’s not working, Gina loves music, plays tennis, and cycles around Sydney’s east. She loves cooking and feeding her family, and is always planning some kind of travel adventure!

San loves dance, especially ecstatic or any other kind of free form dance.
One of two boys, Nick C was raised on a regimen of cricket and rugby league. Go the Tigers!
Having forever been interested in knowing how things work, which mostly resulted in the pulling apart his broken toys and gadgets from around the house, took Nick to train as a Physio and figuring out the human body.
Nick loves complex problems. If you have a long history and want someone to really sit down and figure out the key issues going on then Nick is your man. He also has a special interest in complex headache/ neck issues, rib/ middle back injuries and sport related injuries.

When he was in high school, Sam dislocated and fractured his elbow from getting tackled while playing AFL and had to go through major surgery as a result.
Post operation Sam had to undergo intensive physiotherapy and rehabilitation to achieve full function and return to sport which allowed him to see firsthand what a difference Physiotherapy could make and sparked his interest and passion in becoming a Physiotherapist himself.

Lindel is a passionate Pilates physio who first became interested in the human body when she injured herself at the young age of 12. After spending a lot of her teenage years seeing various physio’s for her injury, Lindel realised that she wanted to be able to help people in the same position she had been in, to get better and to get their bodies and life back. This lead her down the track of becoming a Physio herself.
As a Pilates physio, Lindel loves how the two modalities compliment each other. She believes that Pilates is a wonderful form of exercise for those who are scared to start moving again post injury or just feel that they need someone to supervise who has a deeper understanding of their own bodies complexities. So if that sounds like you, don’t hesitate to drop by with any questions.
When Lindel is not working, she loves to go to the beach. She is currently learning to surf, so if you have any advice or tips she would love to hear them!
