About us

Our passions, goals and why we are here

KickStart Allied Health was created to provide clinicians a positive and supportive platform to help people in a way that they are passionate about. It was created to inspire working with beautiful people that are part of the NDIS framework. To bring the services to the people that need it most. 

We want people to be happy at work. To be doing what they love. Making a positive difference in peoples lives. Meeting people . Connecting with people. Being supported in their journey. We want our clinicians to embrace life, and in doing so inspire others to do the same. 

We want our beautiful clients to get the supports that they need, from someone who takes the time to listen, to understand and implement strategies based on YOUR goals, where YOU want to be.   

 

Our passion is to empower people to become the best version of themselves that they can be. To inspire people to take control of their lives and their health. To educate people about their bodies and what they are capable of. To remove self doubt and to open doors and create opportunities. To inspire people to welcome joy into their life.

Meet your Physio

Jackie Bollen - Career

Jackie has worked as a physiotherapist in a range of settings - hospital, aged care and private practice. She has treated children, elderly, athletes, weekend warriors and everyone in between.

She has undertaken courses in advanced pilates, dry needling, advanced shoulder management and concussion management which have given her invaluable skills.

​Currently she is studying functional medicine, which is medicine that targets the cause of disease/dysfunction/pathology rather than masking symptoms with harmful drug based interventions. She looks forward to incorporating this knowledge into her future practice!
