Fiona Johnson graduated in 2007 with a Masters in Physiotherapy in Queensland after completing a Bachelor of Exercise Science in 2005 and quickly developed a passion for movement based rehabilitation.
Fiona has worked extensively in both the public and private hospital sectors and in private practice resulting in a strong interest in thoracic and pelvic pain. Fiona began teaching combined Pilates and core classes with a leading physiotherapy pain management clinic in 2013 (The Fix Program) concentrating greatly on women’s health.
Fiona has received extensive training to develop her manual therapy techniques for treatment of back, neck and pelvic pain under the expertise and tutelage of Dr. Barbara Hungerford. Additionally, exploration of Visceral Manipulation (VM) in the last 4 years has added additional layers to Fiona’s assessments and treatments.
VM assists functional and structural imbalances throughout the body including musculoskeletal, vascular, nervous, urogenital, respiratory, digestive and lymphatic dysfunction. It evaluates and treats the dynamics of motion and suspension in relation to organs, membranes, fascia and ligaments.
Fiona’s trained skills in Real Time Ultrasound, Muscle Energy Technique and Exercise Science serve as invaluable tools to achieve optimal outcomes for individuals with acute and/or chronic pain through re-patterning and facilitation of core and lumbo-pelvic musculature.
As a keen student of yoga, Fiona completed her yoga intensive teacher training course (Inspired Leaders) in early 2015 and yin yoga course (WOKE yoga) in 2017 and now teaches both group and private classes. Through her extensive knowledge of the body, Fiona facilitates safe and nurturing classes that embrace and feel in to the physical form.
Her passion is to awaken connection between the body and the mind- helping individuals attune and attend to their own physical, mental, emotional and energetic realms with a curiosity and kindness.
