About us

Our passions, goals and why we are here

KickStart Allied Health was created to promote a proactive approach to health, and well being. Too often we wait until pain or an injury becomes a burden to do something about it, and usually then it ends up becoming a very time consuming and costly process. Time and time again injuries take months or years to rehabilitate, injuries which could have been prevented. This has a massive impact on a persons' physical and emotional well being. 

 

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 allow people to welcome joy into their life. 

Our goal is to facilitate growth and repair of mind and body, by using interventions that are tailor made to the individuals goals and needs. Following a comprehensive face to face assessment, together we create a treatment plan that targets your needs. Using concepts of both muscular and neural plasticity, our programs are unique and designed to optimize your physical capabilities using cutting edge techniques from the latest research.

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!
