In Aaron’s eyes, there is not one approach to injury management that suits everybody, therefore his individualised assessment and treatment plans can aid anyone on their journey to full recovery.

She moved to Asia in 1992 and worked in a private practice in Hong Kong for 14 years, before setting up her own clinic on moving to Macau. She joined Physio Focus in 2009 when her family relocated to Singapore.

Rowena has a wealth of experience in private practice and is an experienced manual therapist treating all types of musculoskeletal and sporting injuries. Her more recent clinical interest has been in the area of women’s health, including ante- and post- natal problems and pelvic pain disorders often presenting as hip or back pain. She is passionate about exercise rehabilitation and has taught Pilates-based exercise for over 20 years. She has worked with clients with long term pain and postural issues as well as elite athletes and professional dancers. In Hong Kong, she worked with dancers from Hong Kong Ballet and taught dance students at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts and with Cirque du Soleil artists while in Macau.

During her time in Asia she has been heavily involved in treating clients with sporting injuries at all levels.
