Tara-Ellen Schebella

Physiotherapist

tara@aaphysiotherapy.com

Tara studied Physiotherapy at the University of South Australia and has worked over the past 15 years in private practice. She maintains a deep appreciation of the complexities of the human experience and the myriad of pain and biomechanical affliction we can experience. She has a background in counselling and is attuned to the influence of stress on body function. A keen observer, she enjoys understanding how flexibility and restriction interplay within the body.

Her hands-on work has a strong fascial release focus; incorporating Craniosacral Therapy (CST), Visceral (organ) Manipulation (VM) and Counterstrain techniques (CS). Her therapeutic style works well in assisting clients suffering from complex, chronic pain conditions, helping to relieve back and neck ache, pelvic pain and headaches. She has a special interest in treating issues that present alongside musculoskeletal issues such as;

  • endometriosis,
  • reflux (indigestion),
  • irritable bowel, bladder over-activity and
  • post surgical scarring - helping to relieve pain and to improve function.
On a more personal note, she has an appreciation of the rigors of being a new mum - as well as experience in navigating biomechanical changes associated with pregnancy and beyond. Tara's physical interests include hiking, yoga, rock-climbing, parkour and belly dance.
