About Me

Hi, I’m Susannah Reid. I graduated with my Physiotherapy degree in 2018 in Melbourne, Australia. With a particular interest in injury recovery, digestive health, brain health, and nervous system function, I have spent the last five years taking advanced training through the Barral, Upledger, and Chikly Institutes, among others.

My treatment approach is unique in integrating gentle, hands-on techniques with dry needling and movement practice to help your brain change how you move through your world. As someone who grew up with multiple sports injuries, concussions and digestive issues, I continue to learn all I can about the body. I love empowering people and teaching them about their bodies as much as I enjoy learning.

Traditional Physiotherapy addresses the muscles, ligaments, joints and bones very well. Still, it leaves much on the table regarding understanding and working with the body’s nerves, blood vessels, and lymphatic and organ systems. These systems are so key to our survival. They are often what our muscles are trying to protect. Treating only the top layer of the issue will result in it resurfacing sooner or later. Assessing and treating these deeper systems of our bodies gives more excellent and lasting results and taps into the innate intelligence of the nervous system to self-correct and heal. 

When I’m not working, I can be found at the gym training the snatch, clean and jerk, or squatting. I also enjoy walking, skiing, pilates, salsa dancing, and yoga. 

I look forward to working with you on your health and wellness.
