Owner & Physiotherapist

Em is a Musculoskeletal and Women’s Health Physiotherapist. Her journey as a physio began in a busy sports physio practice where she was one of the club physios for Eastern Suburbs Rugby Union.

Since opening Active RX Physio Em’s interest shifted into the womens health space. This was triggered largely by her own personal experience of pregnancy, labour and the post partum period. She understands how challenging the transition into motherhood can be and is passionate about helping women to navigate this journey. 

Em’s background of playing elite sport, combined with time spent working with athletes has inspired her hands on approach to treatment. She strongly believes that movement is a fundamental part of almost all recovery and rehabilitation 

Em has completed extra study in

  • Women’s Pelvic Health via the APA,
  • Advanced course in Stress Urinary Incontinence and Pelvis Organ Prolapse via WHTA.
  • Western Acupuncture / Dry Needling
  • Active Release Techniques (ART).

Em's reviews

"Active RX Physio was referred to me by a friend. I was suffering back pain. Em was so accomodating and I instantly very comfortable in her presence. Just over a year I had twin girls,she educated me in particular about the effects of post partum about what was the root cause of my pain.She went through several different exercises. I found it really helpful when she sent videos of exercises I needed to do and always was so good to follow up and make sure I understood why and what I needed to do.
The pain in my back was gone within a wk and has not come back. I would highly recommend Emma. Such a lovely person and so professional ✨"


"I saw Emma postnatally when I was trying to get my strength back and deal with muscle separation. She got to the root of the issues I was having really quickly and her treatments were spot on. Her depth of postnatal knowledge was very reassuring. I had seen other Physios in the past who I felt didn’t understand my issues and how it was affecting me, Em set me at ease straight away."


"I found Active RX when looking for an affordable women’s physio when pregnant. Having had 2 pregnancies herself (now a 3rd!!), Em was the ideal physio as she understood the toll that growing a human takes on the body and really helped with my back pain as well as ensuring I was prepared for birth & my postnatal life! Pregnant or not Id recommend Em in a heartbeat for her friendly yet professional expertise :)"

"I went to see Em all through my second pregnancy and postpartum, and can't recommend her services as a women's physiotherapist enough.

Prior to seeing Em, I was worried about my pelvic floor and large abdominal separation due to carrying 2x large babies (both over 4.5kg!) But I felt very supported and was given easy exercises to do at home to gain strength again in my pelvic floor muscles and core, along with easing tension all around my shoulders and lower back.

Em is not only a fantastic physio, she also gives the best massages!! I can't thank her enough for my speedy postnatal recovery, she was a game changer this second time round!!"
