At Energy In Motion Physiotherapy, our goal is to create pathways together towards a healthier lifestyle - moving well and feeling well - through Physiotherapy, education and outdoor living. Every individual is unique and brings with them a story that contains a unique history of physical and emotional traumas. This is why we believe in treating using a whole body approach, like ConnectTherapy, as it considers the whole individual, and allows us to plan based on the specifics needs of each individual.

What is ConnectTherapy?

ConnectTherapy is a framework used to assess, diagnose and understand how well you move. It identifies areas of dysfunction in the body through a series of whole body movements, which enables our Physiotherapists to provide a unique treatment plan to create long-lasting change. 

By understanding these areas of dysfunction throughout the entire body, you and your Physiotherapist, can begin working on retraining your old and ineffective movement habits, to build newer, more dynamic and supportive movement habits that will support you for life. 

This is an education-rich process and you will learn a great deal about your body throughout your ConnectTherapy journey.

An example of ConnectTherapy in action - Low Back pain

Mr Blogs injured his ankle whilst out trail running one weekend. The ankle swelled up over the weekend, and on Monday he laced up his Steel Cap boots and returned to work as a trade hobbling around on his ankle. He continued to do this for a few weeks, until the swelling in his ankle disappeared and he forgot all about his once sprained ankle. Over the next few years, he develops a R sided hip and low back pain. 

Our foot is our primary contact with the earth. It is meant to absorb force, adapt to uneven surfaces and be malleable. When the foot is injured, (and worse, trapped in a rigid shoe), it cannot perform it's normal role. Consequently, somewhere else in the anatomical chain must take up this load - be it the knee, hip or lumbar spine etc. 

Symptomatic treatment of the low back can provide temporary relief of Mr Blogs symptoms, however if the underlying movement dysfunctions in the body are not addressed, these symptomatic treatments will only act as a bandaid that will continually draw him back to physio. By assessing the individual as a whole and identifying areas of movement dysfunction globally, Mr Blogs can optimise the function of these regions to not only improve his back pain, but improve his whole body function, performance and energy. 

The brains behind ConnectTherapy

ConnectTherapy™ was developed by Dr Linda-Joy (LJ) Lee, a Canadian physiotherapist whose work has been published in many peer-reviewed journals. LJ's research has been fuelled by her ability to think outside the box, and her passion to change peoples lives. Her framework combines current scientific research (on a broad range of system areas), with her clinical experience to understand how dysfunction in pain free areas of the body can have a domino effect throughout the entire body. 

Our physiotherapist, Elizabeth Fong (formerly Elizabeth Ciranni) has been training with LJ since 2015. She has attended all of LJ's courses here in Australia and also assisted on The Thoracic Ring Approach Course in 2019.  Liz  has completed The ConnectTherapy 3-part Series, Part 4, Foot & Ankle Complex, The Thoracic Ring Approach, The Pelvic Girdle, and many Advanced Skills Workshops.

Young Mothers Staying Fit

We provide women with education, treatment and self management strategies to support their health across the lifespan. 


Working with women, it is important to consider that they have a unique 28 day feminine cycle which influences how they train and recover, and how they build strength and endurance. Our physiotherapists recognise this and can tailor their physiotherapy program to meeting their varying needs. ​​


Girls who haven’t yet begun menstruating, and women post-menopausal have different training requirements again.


Ask your physiotherapist how to best support your health, training and 28-day cycle at your next appointment.
