We believe in developing and maintaining positive relationships and trust with our clients. Our ability to deliver up to 60 minutes per consultation allows us to effectively care for and communicate regarding injuries and rehabilitation.
We always have our client’s best interests at heart, and we provide the option of combining acupuncture and physiotherapy to promote the recovery process. We will also refer other clinically appropriate sources such as sports physicians and medical specialists where appropriate. We always focused on improving the abilities of our staff. Through mentoring and in-service teaching, we ensure that our staff maintain the most appropriate and current skillset.
As a practice, we have a strong sense of responsibility in giving back to the community at both a national and grassroots level. We work closely with grassroots rugby teams that would not normally have access to physiotherapy and sideline support for senior teams. We are the official providers of physiotherapy care for the Botany Swarm Ice Hockey team and we are also very proud to be the official providers of physiotherapy care for the New Zealand Ice Blacks. The Physio360 NZ mission is to provide the highest level of care to all walks of life
Sunny graduated with his Bachelors of Health Sciences (Physiotherapy) in 2014, and has since worked in a variety of settings, both public and private. After acquiring a broad knowledge base and understanding the shortfalls of healthcare in private and public practise, Sunny decided to branch out on his own to provide a holistic approach to care for all patients. Sunny has also gained his advanced qualification in dry needling since graduating, and is continually looking to expand his skillset. Sunny believes that everyone should always understand the cause and effect for any of their injuries. He provides value to the community by not only treating the root cause of injury through physiotherapy, but also seeks to share the knowledge thus empowering his clients to reach a state of full recovery and wellness. Sunny hopes to one day branch out further and pursue his medical degree, with the aim of becoming a surgeon. When he’s not working, Sunny enjoys taking long rides on his motorbike and taking his dog Eva out for walks and to the beach.

Over the years, Lisa developed a particular interest for pain management and treatment of spine related injuries. She gained advanced qualifications in dry needling, and spinal mobilisations and manipulations and has since worked with a vast array of clients from different backgrounds. Lisa believes in having a balanced work-life arrangement, and is a proud mother to a pug named Otto who travels with her on her motorbike wearing what we refer to as “Poggles” (Pug Goggles).
