 To gain a different insight into the physiotherapy world in early 2017, Daniel volunteered as a physiotherapist in an orphanage in Peru treating a wide range of neurological and musculoskeletal disorders. “I think that experience really bought home to me how fortunate we are here in Australia in respect to all aspects of our lives but particularly healthcare.”

Daniel believes that “exercise plays a big role in achieving excellent health” and uses this, along with various manual techniques, to achieve the best outcomes for his patients.

This philosophy helped develop his interest in Clinical Pilates and the application of this to treat and prevent a variety of conditions.

Daniel’s love of sports spreads into his own life as he has enjoyed being a part of local football and basketball teams for as long as he can remember. He also enjoys going to the gym and participating in Pilates classes.

Jo Preston

Originally a Kiwi, Jo moved to Australia as a teenager. After completing school she worked in roles including a Recruitment Consultant, PA and administration within the banking industry. Meeting her husband in Brisbane and having two wonderful boys she and her family relocated to China for 8 years with her husband pursuing an executive position. She returned to Australia in 2013 with her two teenage boys and her husband keen to re-join the workforce after her 8 year stint in China where visa requirements prevented her from working. Fortunately for the clinic, we quickly recognized her talent and we are fortunate to have enjoyed her help ever since. Now a valuable asset to the practice Jo is the happy voice at the end of your phone calls and the smiling face to often greet you at reception. Jo possesses outstanding customer service skills and has quickly gained an excellent knowledge of the healthcare industry. Outside of her work at the clinic she continues to enjoy keeping fit at the gym, doing Pilates, and travelling with her family.
