Lead by Principal Physiotherapist, Gavin Johnston, EastWest Physiotherapy has developed a reputation over the years for being “integrative and passionate”. Gavin’s special interests include the study of biomechanics and posture, acupuncture, sports injuries and spinal pain and dysfunction. Common modalities include myofascial massage, trigger point release therapy, acupuncture and exercise therapy (core training, yoga, fitness and rehabilitation).
Gavin’s vision is to provide a clinical environment which is nurturing and rewarding for patients and staff while challenging our team to deliver the best results possible. “I want my patients to walk tall and be proud. This is only possible when the body’s systems are strong, supple and full of energy.”
Graduating in physiotherapy from the University of Sydney in 1991, Dan Wheeler studied acupuncture in 2003 and started at EastWest in 2002.
Dan’s physiotherapy career has been invigorated by the EastWest style of biomechanical scientific analysis and the energetic modality of acupuncture, where one plus one equals three. Dan uses a myofascial approach to change how patients move and acupuncture to complement and accelerate outcomes.
