International physio scene.

What are the chances of two physiotherapists, both young, both female and both from a Latin country, knocking on our door the same day? Not very high, you'd think - but that's what happened last October.

Alessandra and Victoria came at a time when we were looking for help to handle the end of the year workload - so they were immediately welcome. Both good professionals and thoroughly nice individuals, they made our Centre an even richer and more diverse place, with the introduction of physiomassage (what is it? check it out). And don't we love that!

Alessandra Cupelli

"Work was great, but the weather was depressing", says Alessandra. She's talking about the six years she spent in London after her degree in physiotherapy at the prestigious "La Sapienza", Rome's oldest University. And not just any degree, but "summa cum laude" - that is, "with the highest honours". There's no higher score.

Shortly afterwards, her itchy feet took her to London, still the siren for many young Italians today in spite of Brexit. There she stayed on for 6 years, refining her skills to become a fully fledged Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist, her last job full time at the West Middlesex Hospital (a major public hospital in West London) until August 2017, when she decided to chase up an old dream.

"I always wanted to see Australia. So I dropped everything and came here before getting too old for a working holiday visa."

London's loss is our gain: Alessandra will now spend the "working" part of her working holiday with us, adding her physiotherapist skills to her remedial massage knowledge. And practicing her fitness routine in much better weather.

Victoria Luberriaga

If Alessandra was FOB (fresh off the boat) in the spring of 2017, Victoria was even fresher, arriving in Australia at the end of September 2017.

Calling Argentina home - where she got her degrees in physiotherapy and, later, in osteopathy - Victoria worked with us until she decided to go the whole hog and experience life on an Australian farm.

We understand she's having too much fun to come back to Sydney, so... good luck!

Jan Messner

Jan is also a physio on a working holiday in Sydney. German from Cologne, young and visibly very fit (a climber in his spare time) he's also a fitness coach with expertise in kinesiology taping.

A very solid performer in physiomassage, he'll spend the winter with us prior to moving to his next destination as spring arrives. Better be quick!

None of our physiotherapists plan to stay in Australia for ever, so going through the hurdles and the expense of getting their degrees registered in Austrtalia isn't a option. So, regrettably, no health fund rebate can apply to the treatments they perform.
