Emma graduated from The University of Sydney in 2015 and started her career in private practise, treating sporting and active populations and teaching clinical exercise (Pilates) as part of her overall care.
Throughout her career she has worked with AFL and Rugby League clubs, including our own Cronulla Sharks women’s teams. These roles have seen Emma cover sideline injuries, implement injury prevention and rehabilitation programs. The experience and knowledge she has gained from these role and in the practice has allowed her to facilitate injury prevention information sessions for local gyms and sports clubs, aiming to keep people moving and competing without injuries!
Having come from an elite gymnastics background, Emma understands the hardwork and dedication it takes to achieve your fitness and sporting goals. She understands that what you want more than anything is to be able to perform at your physical best, so you can compete and achieve your goals, feel healthy, keep stress levels to a minimum and feel connected with mates in your sporting team, training group or gym.
Emma’s value for movement and physical activity is what drives her passion for Physiotherapy. She loves helping people get back to activity, or participation within their community. Her treatment style uses a combination of hands on treatment along with exercise and movement to get you back sooner! She will provide you with expert guidance and advice around how to train, what your pain means, and how to continue training without making it worse. She will help you find the positives when you’re feeling disheartened and frustrated with your injury and keep you motivated when yours seems to lag.
Outside of the clinic, Emma enjoys spending her spare time in the gym doing Crossfit, playing golf on the weekends, drinking coffee and supporting her AFL club – Richmond.

Carly graduated from Sydney University with a Masters of Physiotherapy in 2011 and began her career in private practice straight away. She has had extensive experience in treating complex hip, pelvis and spinal issues and has gone on to complete further studies in Women’s Health. She has also treated a wide range of sporting injuries, along with completing Sports Level I and II courses.
Carly’s assessment and treatment model looks at the whole body and not just treating the injury but looking for functional or biomechanical deficits to help prevent recurrence. She uses a combination of manual therapy, exercise prescription and dry needling and also spends a lot of time educating her patients about their condition which significantly helps with their self-management.
Carly completed studies in Women’s Health early on in her career after seeing the huge impact pelvic floor problems can have on peoples lives. She is passionate about helping women with their pelvic floor issues and also treating pre-and postnatal women for pregnancy related issues.
Outside of physiotherapy, Carly has recently been busy having two young children and running a business with her husband. She stays fit by playing netball, running and going to the gym and loves all things food related – cooking, eating and dining in restaurants!

After nearly 2 years of not being able to run Ciaran and Bek have helped me through my journey. Despite a number of misdiagnoses from other physio's, Ciaran found the underlying injury and worked closely with my coach and specialist to make sure my rehab was aiding my recovery and getting me back into the sports I love.
After receiving treatment from the team at Fit and Flow for a torn hamstring, my running times are similar, if not faster than they were before my injury and I’m back doing my normal exercises without any pain.
I have had three courses of treatment at Fit and Flow Physiotherapy and each has been a success. Ciaran is a dedicated and gifted clinician and her whole team are focused on helping their patients on the road to recovery.
Great culture and staff are super professional. Would highly recommend for anyone with niggly or long-term injuries, was able to learn a lot about my injury and had the continued support of everyone there at the practice!!
Ciaran has treated me for many years for ongoing ailments relating to my body type, the occasional injury and more recently pregnancy and post pregnancy recovery.
