Rebecca is an experienced Physiotherapist, having practiced since 2000 and is passionate about caring for her clients and navigating their needs.
I am a Physiotherapist with musculoskeletal skills for all body parts for acute injuries and in overuse situations. My Physiotherapy special interests are varied – from injury prevention to chronic illness, spinal care and posture, to sports such as multisport and gymnastics. Specifically, I can offer breathing assessment and treatment, and Cancer rehabilitation for those on a Cancer journey. I have a growing interest in assisting worker’s health and wellbeing, with worksite assessment and management.
My whanau (husband and three teen daughters) moved to Kerikeri in 2017 after stints in Whakatane and Whangarei. In my spare time I am a committee member and coach at Kerikeri gymnastics club and help with mainly music, Kids church, and school governance. I love the great outdoors, hiking, biking or paddling and am grateful to be continually exploring the Bay of Islands and Far North.
