Introducing Brooke Lishman

Clinic Founder, Integrative Body Health Practitioner, Dad

I was born in Auckland and due to a rugby scholarship I was able to attend St Kentigern College where I enjoyed competing in several top sport teams. I commenced a Bachelor of Arts degree (Psychology & Philosophy) at Auckland Uni, before completing a Bachelor of Health Science (Physiotherapy) at AUT.


I began my career at Auckland City Hospital which helped me realise my passion lay in private practice to be able to really help achieve lasting results. My wife and I moved to Australia for five years to develop our professional skills before returning home with our young daughter to open Back to Life Wellness in Albany. We reside just north of Auckland with our three rescue animals.

Founding this clinic and seeing the results it has helped many people achieve has been my most rewarding career experience to date. What began merely as idea during reflection outside a temple in Thailand, quickly became a labour of love.


I believe ongoing education and skill development as essential and have studied with the following world class leaders: Robbie Goodrum (Manipulative Therapy), Brian Mulligan (Joint Mobilisation) and Don Tolman (Whole Foods for Health) to be able to offer a holistic approach that works recognizing that alongside effective and safe techniques, nutrition and lifestyle adjustments can help fast-track tissue healing and recovery.

Advanced Postural Biomechanical Correction Techniques (APBCT)

As the only APBC therapist in Australasia who has completed the advanced training, this is a new, unique and highly effective technique that allows me to be able to find the correct tissue causing the physical symptoms, and then utilise a correct and safe technique for that pathology avoiding forceful or damaging ones, using nutrition and lifestyle to help fast-track tissue healing and recovery.
