Shelia Yu – Physiotherapist
Shelia completed her Masters (in physiotherapy) at Curtin University in 2005 after completing a Degree in Human Movement and Exercise Science at UWA in 2001. After graduation, with her experience in exercise and physiotherapy, she worked in private practise as a physio but was also employed as a tutor at UWA for the aerobics unit and as a lecturer and unit coordinator for the post graduate program in Exercise Physiology. She has completed 3 Pilates courses, her last one in 2017 and uses it in her treatment for rehabilitation. Clinically Shelia enjoys treating all musculoskeletal conditions especially low back pain and movement type injuries in knees or shoulders.
Shelia is passionate about Health & Fitness and the physiological and psychological benefits of regular exercise and movement. She is interested in people and believes in being hands on when it comes to physiotherapy treatment. She loves the challenge of helping people get better but understands that sometimes rehabilitation can be slow and so strives to educate, inspire and motivate patients recovering from injury.
She is also qualified in Level 1 Lymphoedema, Functional Training, Kinesiology Taping, run coaching and has been a Group Fitness Instructor (trained in 6 Les Mills Program) for the last 18 years.
Shelia regularly exercises and works out at a gym and can therefore relate to common fitness-training injuries and have a sympathetic understanding of their effect. Outside of work, Shelia loves running, hanging out with her kids, gardening and baking.
