About

Andrea-Cornish-remedial-therapist-BlackwoodHi, I’m Andrea.
I want to help you manage your pain and discomfort and live your life better. I’m here to support you and want to work with you in your journey to live a life with less pain and more movement.

I grew up with a keen interest in health and remember devouring the medical encyclopaedias at my parents’ home. With a knack for languages I went on to study languages but soon discovered that this wasn’t where I wanted to be and found myself working at a medical clinic back in the days where practice managers were able to assist at minor procedures. My passion grew from there.

Early 2007 I sustained severe injuries in an accident and this brought about some major changes in my life as I was on the receiving end of some amazing therapists.

Skip a few years, and I am now a fully qualified remedial therapist myself with a keen passion for helping others manage or overcome the pain and discomfort of their injuries/illnesses and to live a fuller life.
