Kia ora, I’m Shauna.
I was born and raised in Hamilton but have spent the last 4 years in Auckland studying at the Auckland
University of Technology where I began my journey in becoming a physiotherapist.
I was inspired to become a physiotherapist at the age of 9 when I suffered a neck injury in gymnastics.
Throughout the rest of my life and my involvement in various sports, I continued to see physiotherapists
for any ‘niggles’ or injuries and would go on to ask them what they loved about their job which only
inspired me further.
Having graduated in 2023, I am still very early in my physiotherapy career but have a personal interest in
musculoskeletal physiotherapy through a sports lens, with a focus on injury prevention and the
rehabilitation of sports-related injuries through a combination of manual therapy and exercise-based
rehabilitation. Ultimately, my main role is to help you identify your goals and support you in achieving
those goals so we can get you back to doing the things that you enjoy being able to do in life.
Outside of work, I am no longer a gymnast but have since transferred my gymnastic skills into CrossFit
which is one of my biggest passions. If I’m not here at one of our Lifestyle Physiotherapy clinics then I will
most definitely be at CrossFit 3216. View details »
Kia ora, my name is Teina.
I was born in Rotorua yet raised in Hamilton where I currently live.
Growing up loving and having the opportunity to play a variety of sports, including football, golf and softball. My greatest passion lies with indoor volleyball. I have been fortunate to play at representative level in both football and volleyball where I have had to faced several injuries which required extended rehab.
It was through this experience and with the assistance from my physiotherapist, where I became interested in the benefits of physiotherapy and the intricacies of how one’s body operates. Ultimately, my newly heightened interest has led me to pursue a career in physiotherapy.
Armored with a positive attitude, I forged a pathway towards physiotherapy by graduating in 2022. I have been fortunate enough to begin my physio journey here at Lifestyle. I aim to give back to the people by helping you on your rehab journey, as physiotherapists have done for me in the past.

This includes manual therapy and dry needling, but I am also passionate about exercise prescription and gym rehabiliation. View details »
