Our growing team

We are thrilled to be growing our team here at Splash Physiotherapy ®

We currently have two physiotherapists, with a third due to start in late 2019, and are working with more potential new staff members to build their skills before they start working with us. 

If you are interested in becoming a Splash Physiotherapist ®, get in touch!

We are growing!

This allows us to see more families without a long wait list. 

We are also collecting expressions of interest in time slots for home visits and aquatics that we don't currently offer or that are wait listed.

Families can feel free to fill out our 'Booking Requests' form to tell us what would suit you best. 

Shayna "Shana" Gavin

Principal Splash Physiotherapist ®

Shayna established Splash Physiotherapy in 2010 to create a physiotherapy service in the community that could help babies, children and young people learn functional skills to participate in everyday life. Splash Physiotherapy is driven by core values drawn from evidence informed practice in paediatrics.

Shayna is working clinically in all services offered at Splash, developing and supporting the Splash team, and driving the Sports and Recreation Intensives program starting in 2018.

She graduated from physiotherapy at the University of Melbourne in 2002 and has since completed extensive further study in paediatrics, aquatics, swim teaching, neurodevelopment, motor learning, motor control, pain, and evidence informed practice in early childhood intervention. 

She is a presenter of ASCTA courses to accredit swim teachers.

She has swum all her life, loves introducing kids to a variety of sports, and loves kayaking and bushwalking.
