Ni’ia’s diverse career over 12 years along with completion of post graduate training in manual therapy, exercise prescription, clinical pilates and dry needling have equipped her with a large knowledge base and expert skill set for treating musculoskeletal conditions.

Ni’ia aims to provide a complete and thorough approach to treatment, whether she is treating runners with knee injuries, desk based workers suffering from a sore back or neck, or those that need pre or post operative rehabilitation. She especially enjoys treating lower limb injuries in the hip and knee and combines strong manual therapy skills with exercise prescription. She believes in motivating and empowering her clients to be actively in charge of their rehabilitation process.

Ni’ia is an accomplished middle distance runner who has competed at national and state level in both New Zealand and Australia. She is passionate about running and enjoys sharing her expertise on the management of running injuries, the optimisation of running biomechanics and strength training for runners. She regularly conducts running analysis assessments, working with runners of all abilities to improve form and to create conditioning programmes that help them run more efficiently and without injury.

In her own time Ni’ia enjoys spending time with her family and likes to keep fit through a mixture of yoga, pilates, jogging and strength training. Along with being a Physiotherapist and Clinical Pilates instructor, she also assists in clinic marketing and development.
