Brigit Beattie

Physiotherapist

Brigit grew up on a farm on the Kaikoura coast and spent much of her youth playing sport or working on the farm. Her keen interest in being active (either on the hockey field, or the hills running, skiing or biking) and helping others, led her to Physiotherapy. 15 plus years later she has finally returned to Blenheim with her family after working around New Zealand, United Kingdom and more recently Christchurch. During her travels she has provided specialist spinal care to the English Professional Football club players, English Judo team and Formula One drivers, worked with multisport athletes, rugby players and numerous weekend warriors keen to keep active in a multitude of ways.

Brigit has a Masters of Health Practice and has keen interest in spinal conditions and pain management. She has developed a strong skill set in managing all injuries but has interest in endurance athletes. Her broad knowledge and love of understanding who you are as a person, provides a great base to keep you out doing things you love, not at home worried about the pain.

Physiotherapist

A passion for adventure, curiosity and learning has fueled Natalie's life and her career.

Over the last decade, Natalie's love of physiotherapy has taken her from the U.K to the sub-Antarctic Falkland Islands, and now to beautiful Aotearoa.
