Meet your Physios
Samantha King (B.Physio)
Hi, and welcome to
True Balance Physio!
I completed a Bachelor of Physiotherapy at the University of Newcastle in 2005. This was the foundation of what would become a lifelong passion of working with people in healthcare.
As a physiotherapist I have worked in a variety of settings including large public hospitals, private practice, rehabilitation units, and community organisations. This has enabled me to gain diverse training and experience in traditional musculoskeletal, sports, and rehabilitative physiotherapy.
My desire to develop a deeper understanding of the body, mind, and human movement drew me to travel overseas and study beyond the world of conventional physiotherapy. I gained additional qualifications in Yoga Teaching, Clinical Pilates, Shiatsu, and Women’s Health.
The experience of motherhood has influenced my ongoing commitment and interest in Women’s Health and Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy. My clinical practice is informed by the most current research and is delivered in a respectful and sensitive way.
Outside of work I endeavour to maintain balance in my own life. I spend my spare time on the yoga mat, in the outdoors, in the garden, playing music, studying, cooking, and enjoying time with my family.
Dannielle Ryan (B. Physio, B. SocSc (Psych))
I have completed a Bachelor of Physiotherapy at Western Sydney University, graduating with distinction. This was on the background of a Bachelor of Social Science majoring in Psychology. My studies have provided me with a firm foundation to which I continually build my understanding of the mind and the body. I have always held a strong interest in the mind-body connection.
My physiotherapy career has given me a variety of experience in private practice, hospital, community, and aged care settings. This has provided me with a broad knowledge and experience of different musculoskeletal conditions across the life span, delivering the most effective, client centred, and meaningful interventions. I offer a variety of movement-based interventions including Clinical Pilates, with qualifications in mat based, small equipment and reformer.
I have developed a special interest in treating Women’s Health and persistent/chronic pain conditions. I am also currently undertaking ongoing research with Western Sydney University in the relationship between mental health and physical activity and how we can remove the barriers to exercise-based intervention for this population.
When not in the clinic you will find me undertaking my own Pilates session, taking a run on one of our beautiful mountain trails or finding a new coffee spot to catch up with friends.
Our vision is to provide
personalised physiotherapy care...
...to inspire change, to motivate you to connect with your body and to enjoy the experience of movement at any age or ability.
We look forward to meeting you!
