Our Story

For thirty years Marie and Graeme Nuttridge  have aspired to clinical excellence, however they quickly learned that this was only half of the story.

Injury and disease can and usually does affect us all. The key issue is not just the physical adversity but also how you cope with this adversity.

Our story does include leading edge physical therapy, but also the integration of exercise, perseverance and goal setting. This ability to set and achieve the goal (e.g, return to rugby in 4 weeks) is often linked to other achievement goals such as reducing weight, increasing overall activity levels and, with the advent of positive psychology, a more engaged and purposeful life. We have learned over the years, that one achievement leads to another, that returning from injury  can lead to goals set and achieved  e.g. reduced weight, better performance, increased activity and a more engaged and focused life.

We do not intend to let this opportunity pass by.
