Melita graduated from Curtin University School of Physiotherapy (WA) in 2009. After 2 years of work in Perth, Melita moved to Sydney which changed her physiotherapy career forever. In Sydney, Melita stumbled across Dr LJ Lee and her functional whole body approach to Physiotherapy, ConnectTherapyTM. Immediately recognising it would enable her to get her patients better, faster, and with less risk of future injuries, Melita found a physio in Bondi, Sydney who practiced it to mentor her and began to transition her practice and hone her craft.
After 5 years of continued learning and amazing results in Sydney, Melita took the plunge and moved to Vancouver to work and study at Dr LJ Lee’s own clinic. This gave her the opportunity to treat a wide variety of patients from olympic athletes to complex presentations who flew from all around the world to come to the clinic.
Melita has recently relocated to Brisbane and is now one of the most highly trained ConnectTherapyTM practicing physiotherapists in Australia. Across her time in Sydney and Vancouver, Melita has treated a wide variety of professional and recreational athletes (including track athletes, ironmen and women and Aussie rules players). That said, she will happily treat anyone who needs her assistance to get back to what they want to do in life, especially if they have been unable to gain relief from traditional physiotherapy. Given her high level training, Melita also understands that physiotherapy can offer so much more than just pain relief, including relief of other symptoms such as dizziness, nausea and stiffness, and amazing improvements in performance.
If you have pain or discomfort appear out of the blue, if you are having difficulty resolving an injury and getting back to what you want to do or if you want to improve your sporting performance, Melita is the physio for you.
