• Bachelor of Physiotherapy (CSU)
• Member Australian Physiotherapy Association

Joh grew up in our lovely city of Albury-Wodonga. She was lucky enough to have exposure to Chinese language from primary school and continued this passion for Chinese culture and language into her high school years. After a language study program to China in year 10 she knew that this was something she wanted to continue to study but not sure quite how that was going to fit into her passion for science and health subjects. She found a way to incorporates all her interests and went onto RMIT University Melbourne to study a double degree in Human Biology and Chinese Medicine. After an internship in China she returned to the border to start work in a Chinese Medicine clinic. This was a great experience and built up her passion to work in a private practice setting. She felt that she needed to have a greater understanding of the biomechanics behind physical manifestations in the body and was drawn back to study physiotherapy. She studied this program through Charles Sturt University.

After years of study Joanne has now well and truly settled into life as a physiotherapist. Since starting work she has undertaken a large amount of professional development courses, including DMA clinical pilates and pilates for high performance athletes, various courses in pain management, sports physiotherapy and lumbopelvic dysfunction, as well as attending the APA’s leadership and business conference. Joanne enjoys using the combination of her physiotherapy and acupuncture / Chinese Medicine skills for clients with lingering pain not responding to the usual physical therapy approaches. Outside of work life Joh loves her rugby league and has played for Albury Thunder. She also enjoys touch football, yoga, bush walking, pizza making, kombucha brewing and bird watching for a bit of serenity!

Georgie Pitson


• Certificate lll and IV Fitness
• Bachelor of Exercise Science (Latrobe University)
• Masters of Exercise Physiology (Latrobe University)

Georgie grew up on a property in the Riverina near Culcairn. From a very young age she was heavily involved with a range of different sports, particularly netball, tennis, athletics and cross country. This resulted in Georgie naturally gravitating to health, science and physical activity subjects at school which has led to a career in Exercise Physiology. After completing her schooling locally at Billabong High School, Georgie moved to Bendigo and completed a Degree in Exercise Science, followed by a Masters of Exercise Physiology at La Trobe University.

As part of her Masters, Georgie completed research investigating optimal exercise dosage and pregnancy. While at university in Bendigo, Georgie completed a 6 month internship at Woodford Sport Science Consulting in Melbourne, providing her with valuable experience in athletic preparation, rehabilitation and injury prevention. More recently Georgie has developed a keen interest in Clinical Pilates, having completed her Matwork Certification training through the Australian Physiotherapy Pilates Institute (APPI) earlier this year, with further pilates equipment training scheduled for later in 2018.

Georgie loves having the ability to work with individuals with a wide variety of health conditions to overcome barriers, regain function, improve performance or make positive lifestyle decisions. She is passionate about facilitating these changes through exercise interventions and educating others about the benefits of physical activity. Georgie has professional interests in clinical pilates, woman health, chronic disease management, athletic development and musculoskeletal rehabilitation. She is also completed post graduate study through the Southern Cross University to be a diabetes educator.
