Pip's passion for working with the body began when she was training heavily for Crossfit competitions and was finding it hard to find a therapist that explained everything and gave meaningful, accurate information. This led her to complete her first Health Science degree in Musculoskeletal Therapy and now, feeling the need to further quench her thirst for knowledge, she is currently undertaking a second Health Science degree in Nutritional Medicine.
As part of her musculoskeletal toolkit, Pip also uses other adjunctive therapies such as dry and electric needling, laser, cupping, trigger point therapy and vagus nerve stimulation therapy. Pip, her husband and daughter moved to Chandler in late 2017 when they decided a rural setting was more their style, they now love being surrounded by their 3 dogs, 8 chickens and a lovely big rooster.
Pip specialises in all things musculoskeletal including:
- Nerve pain and symptoms
- Joint pain, movement and health
- Chronic pain and inflammation
- Back Pain
- Frozen shoulder
- Acute pain and injury

Marks background is anything but one of a typical therapist. After spending 16 years in the construction industry as a carpenter and a builder Mark decided that he wanted to help people in a different way. After receiving treatment from a myotherapist, he decided that he wanted to learn how to help people in the same way. This background, along with his sporting history and own health journey gives Mark a unique insight into the physical demands and neglect that some people place on their body. Mark is currently studying a Degree of Health Science in Myotherapy and is a qualified Therapeutic Massage Therapist. Mark is passionate about helping people especially in reducing stress, muscle tension, aches and pains along with all muscular issues. Therapeutic massage is a term used for a massage when the aim is to relieve pain/stress and to work on a specific problem. In a nutshell its more than a relaxation massage but less than a remedial massage. It involves hands-on techniques with the aim to decrease muscle tension, increase blood and lymphatic flow, promote relaxation, aid in sleep management, facilitate recovery from sports and injury, relieve stress and alleviate pain. Mark is also qualified in Vagus Nerve Stimulation and Photobiomodulation Therapy (Laser)
