Our Practitioners

Our practitioners are qualified and highly experienced physiotherapists who have dedicated their career to helping those with head dysfunction. They are passionate about their work and have completed many hours of further study to be able to offer a specialised treatment approach for Headache and Migraine.

Our Principal Practitioners, Rob Wallis and Andris Simsons, have achieved Level 3 Certification in Watson Headache Approach.
