Our Physiotherapists

Laurie Patchett

Laurie graduated with a degree in physiotherapy in 1974 commencing work in the public health system before pursuing her passion for age care in which she practiced for 25 years until her current role in clinical practice. Having suffered back pain and migraines since her teens Laurie has a keen interest in spinal issues and works toward pain relief and prevention with exercise and postural realignment. Laurie has more recently been working in the area of stress management and relaxation, using a massage based approach, combining her physio skills with deep tissue massage, myofascial release and some energy release techniques. Within the last few years Laurie has been inspired to take up yoga and other active pursuits such as participating with her daughters in the Pink Triathlon. While not posting a world shattering time her personal satisfaction of completing the course further mirrors her belief for physical activity at all stages of life. Her greatest achievement however is raising two fit and happy children and she derives great joy from regularly looking after her 3 grandsons.
