Stella joins our Yeppoon team from New Zealand and completed a Bachelor of Health Science (Physiotherapy) at the University of Technology Auckland in 2002. Before moving to Australia in 2022, Stella has worked in paediatric physiotherapy and in a musculoskeletal private practice. Stella’s passion in musculoskeletal physiotherapy is incorporating hands-on therapy with exercise prescription. She is a firm believer that therapists “see” with their hands, gaining a much better understanding of – as well as a much better rapport with patients through therapeutic touch (massage, myofascial release therapy, joint mobilisations). Stella enjoys most aspects of musculoskeletal physiotherapy but especially loves working with neck injuries/ headaches, shoulder injuries & lower back injuries and firmly believe in a holistic approach.
