Eric has over 13 years of experience as a Physiotherapist after graduating from the University of Melbourne in 2008.

He has completed additional training in the DMA method of Clinical Pilates.

Eric takes pride in providing a holistic approach to his clients, taking care to address each individual’s concerns and needs. His treatment method is tailored to each individual, taking advantage of his manual therapy skills, use of exercise rehabilitation and knowledge of current research and evidence.

Outside of work you’ll find Eric at a music gig, attempting to surf or supporting the Hawks. If not, he’ll likely be enjoying a coffee and teaching himself guitar.
