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!

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.
