Libby Meakin, Registered Physiotherapist

Libby graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy from Glasgow Caledonian University in Scotland. She has a hands on, manual therapy approach to treatment and believes in getting to the root of problems to help avoid future injuries. She follows a holistic, individual approach and works with each patient towards achieving positive outcomes.

Since graduating she has broadened her base of available treatments to include acupuncture, using traditional meridians to help relieve pain and promote healing. She is also certified in Pilates mat work levels 1-3 by the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute and incorporates this knowledge into her treatment programmes.

Most recently Libby became a ConnectTherapy™ graduate involving use of the Thoracic Ring Approach. This strengthened her belief of getting to the root of a problem and ensuring that with any injury the whole picture is being taken into consideration.
