Our Vision at Wellness Embodied is to provide skilled, individualised Physiotherapy & Allied Health Services which are unique to Cairns. We are proud to be Cairns only accredited CCMI clinic (As of March 2021). We have 3 CCMI trained Practitioners. Clara Andrich is our vestibular/ vertigo superstar- treating kids and adults who experience symptoms of vertigo, balance complaints and dizziness. Our vestibular physiotherapy includes use of specialised equipment such as goggles, laser tracking and more, for accurate assessment and treatment of vertigo and balance complaints. Interestingly, research increasingly shows that vestibular issues are associated with developmental delay in kids, so the value of Clara's vestibular assessments at Wellness Embodied can't be overestimated. Our director, Suzanne Rath, has been treating clients with acute and post concussion symptoms since the clinic's inception in 2017. Clients with post concussion syndrome develop a range of complex symptoms and many have travelled for up to 3 hours to appointments with Suzanne in Cairns. Suzanne has a special interest in neck physiotherapy and the role of the cervical spine and whiplash in Post Concussion Syndrome. She is a level 2 Watson Headache trained physiotherapist, frequently attends headache conferences and is an Upledger trained Craniosacral Therapist. Alyza Brown runs our Monday Concussion Clinic and conducts Baseline Pre Season testing for Sports Teams. We know that the earlier a concussed person sees a CCMI practitioner to get practical advice and assessment, the better this is for their recovery- so the Monday drop in clinic offers the perfect chance for athletes, or others, who sustain a concussion on the weekend, to have an assessment and get on track for early recovery. Baseline pre season testing is important to guide athletes' recovery and return to play in the event of them sustaining a concussion, as well as provide areas for them to work on to optimise their health, fitness and function. Ultimately, this improves their game play, reduces hours off the field and prevents against secondary injuries. Besides CCMI Concussion Management services, our practice offers one on one and group physiotherapy for a range of clients in the Cairns region- including Workcover, NDIS, CTP, DVA, Medicare and Private clients with acute and complex issues. We run Cairns' only Onero- Bone health classes for Osteoporosis and Osteopenia. We offer Naturopathy by a physiotherapist who holds degrees and over 10 years of clinical experience in both modalities, Exercise Physiology, Remedial Massage & Equipment Sales.

- Alyza Brown.PhysiotherapistBachelor of PhysiotherapyActive Release TherapyAcupuncture/DryneedlingExercise RehabNeck RehabVision RehabI am a physiotherapist with over three years experience. In this time, I have developed skills in sporting and musculoskeletal injuries, with a particular focus on how to optimise return to play, prevent recurrence, and avoid surgical intervention. I have a special interest in injury prevention in particular, especially in relation to how strength and conditioning can assist every day athletes in avoiding the development of annoying overuse injuries. I have completed training in sports physiotherapy, strength and conditioning coaching, ACL non-operative management, and concussion Injury assessment and treatment. In the past 12 months I have developed relationships with local sporting clubs, and am excited to expand my career in this region of physiotherapy further. My career goals include becoming an accredited sports physiotherapist, and strength and conditioning coach, as well as becoming a clinical educator for all new physiotherapists coming up through university. I am especially passionate about improving awareness of concussion within the sporting setting, with particular focus on rugby union. My goal is to optimise concussion reporting within my local rugby club to ensure that athletes are protecting their long-term health after their sporting career is over.
- Frank Tam.PhysiotherapistExercise RehabNeck RehabMy name is Frank, I am a physiotherapist based in Cairns. I am originally from Hong Kong, and I was trained in the University of Newcastle, Australia. I very much enjoy treating different musculoskeletal injuries but I am particularly interested in seeing patients with concussion injury, whiplash injury, or any neck related injury/pain. I use a combination of hands on techniques and exercise therapy for my patients, because I believe that hands on physical assessments and techniques are very important to help improve pain and movement, but exercise is equally as important. And I also believe that it is important to not just assess and treat the injured site, but the whole person, and consider different aspects and contributing factors, psychological and social factors that might influence the injury and presentation. I can fluently speak English and Cantonese, and I am also proficient in Mandarin. I am happy to see patients with different stages of concussions, and any other musculoskeletal related injuries.
- Maigi Korbe.PhysiotherapistExercise RehabNeck RehabVestibular RehabI graduated from Tartu Health Care College in 2013. In 2015 I obtained a master’s degree at University of Tartu. I am passionate about helping people and enjoy working as a physiotherapist. I have a special interest in vestibular rehab and paediatrics. I have done further professional development in vestibular rehab and I enjoy keeping myself up to date with the latest research. Dizziness and balance issues are common after a concussion and I enjoy helping people to get back to their school/work and sport after they sustained a concussion. Also, as neck symptoms are common after a concussion, I have done further professional development such as an Australian Physiotherapy Association neck physiotherapy course and an extensive amount of in-house training regarding treating neck and whiplash symptoms such as headaches and neck pain. In my spare time, I love dancing, hiking and spending time with my friends.
