PUT YOUR BODY

Rehabilitate, Recover, Restore

Our Founder  —  

ABOUT BROOKE

I was born in Auckland and attended St Kentigern College where I enjoyed a rugby scholarship and competing in several top sport teams. I commenced a Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Auckland, before completing a Bachelor of Health Science (Physiotherapy) at AUT.

 

My wife and lived in Australia for several years where I worked in a variety of private practices to hone my skills. During a reflective period outside a temple in Thailand, I conceived the vision that became Back to Life Wellness on our return home to New Zealand with our daughter, which has been a hugely rewarding experience, both personally and professionally.

 

I see ongoing education and skill development as essential and have studied with world-class leaders including Robbie Goodrum, Brian Mulligan and Don Tolman. Combined with my own observations and practical expertise, I have developed my own foundation that incorporates effective techniques alongside nutrition and lifestyle adjustments to fast-track healing and recovery.

I am the only Advanced Postural Biomechanical Correction (APBC) therapist in Australasia, a world-class modality that allows me to efficiently determine the tissue at the core of the physical symptoms, and then utilize a safe technique that avoids avoiding forceful or damaging movements.

I look forward to supporting you on your wellness journey.

INTEGRATIVE PRACTICE

PHILOSOPHY

Life is too short to stay stuck. Get aligned to the best version of you.

 

I founded Back to Life Wellness to deliver a bespoke, best practice approach that allows you to achieve lasting results. I am completely focused on helping you overcome your hurdles and address your pain, discomfort or injury so you can enjoy more energy, resilience and movement.

With 15 years experience as a qualified physiotherapist, I used my natural curiosity to expand on my training and experience to be able to truly understand the body and how it works - so I could identify the most effective and efficient ways to facilitate the best possible outcome for you.

 

Together we can go much further than merely temporarily reducing symptoms, and through longer sessions I spend time to help you understand the role you play in your recovery, to reduce the risk of recurrence.


We'll create a tailored holistic treatment plan with education and support at every stage so you can integrate this new knowledge and awareness into your day-to-day life, because after all, you do play the most important role in your recovery.
 

I can help with any condition or injury and offer two locations. Our peaceful Albany based clinic, or Mangawhai where I can treat you in the comfort of your own home.
