Our Team

Shane Roenne
Director (BaAppSc Physio)

I started my physio career over 15 years ago and I feel I have been very lucky to find something that I really love doing and has taken me around the world working. I can’t imagine not being a physio. I created this company as a reflection of my personal philosophy on life and wellness. I want to inspire people to live the lives they want and to not be held back by their bodies. I have two wonderful kids under the age of three and they have helped shape my outlook on the importance of being able to move and play at any age. My belief is that moving well means we can get the most out of life as well having less injuries and performing better. I want to make it fun and not a chore, so you will never get a long list exercises when you come to see us.
