R.N / R,M, BA Health Sc, Post Grad Dip Clinical Nursing (Midwifery)
Annie has 30 years experience as a registered nurse and midwife. She has worked a variety of areas, including hospitals and the community. She has taught in the tertiary sector, in nursing, aged care, mental health and disability.
Her background in traditional medicine has given her a sound knowledge of the human body with her speciality areas being paediatrics (babies and children), oncology, and mental health; particularly adolescent. Her involvement in many sports including Dragon Boat Racing for a decade, has led to an interest and understanding of common injuries and effects of sport on the body.
Nursing knowledge and experience has provided Annie with a comprehensive understanding of the human body’s limitations, and the complications that are associated with mainstream pain management.
She was managing her own long-term pain when Physiokey was suggested as an alternative. Ready to try anything, Annie, with a level of healthy scepticism, volunteered to be a ‘guinea pig’ for a Physiokey demonstration in Perth on her frozen shoulder. What she experienced was relief, and an increase in range of moment and function in her left shoulder.
This inspired her to invest in a Physiokey, and train as a Physiokey therapist to make this amazing pain relief therapy available to others, whilst continuing to work as a Registered Nurse.
