Sal is a strong advocate for leaning in and living life, and this is where the concept of the Barefoot Lifestyle came from. She believes that to enjoy every moment we need to be able to do what we want with our bodies.
To help people with this, Sal provides only the highest standard of care to her clients. This standard of care can be in part attributed to her extensive experience (private practice, hospital, orthopaedic, pilates, sporting and women’s health) as well as her thorough commitment to professional development. The combination of these knowledge bases has provided Sal with the understanding not only of the musculoskeletal conditions a person can have but also of the body as a whole (medically/orthopaedically/psychologically/emotionally). This holistic approach helps Sal’s clients achieve the rapid and long-lasting results they desire.
As part of this holistic approach, Sal believes that both the body and mind are important for good health. Nourishment for the mind for Sal includes meditating, walking in Toohey Forest with her dogs (Bundy and PJ) and spending time with people that are special to her.
Sal’s idea of leaning in to life can be somewhat different to the norm, the best example of which was when she designed and had built a beach house at Toogoom, Queensland when she was 28. If you ask her why? “Most people aim to finish their lives with a beach house… I thought I’d start there and work my way back. Also I want a place for my friends and family to enjoy now and into the future”.
For those who are interested, Toogoom is a beachside town 3.5 hours drive north of Brisbane. The land Sal bought to build on was originally owned by her family in the 1940s as a citrus farm. She jokes that they are buying back the family farm 600m2 at a time.
Sal loves the community that is emerging around Barefoot and in honour of this throws an annual carpark party where the Barefoot family (clients, friends, referrers and the physio team) come together to play games, meet other Barefooters and generally have a good time. It really is physio with a difference!
