SARAH KATSOULIS - Myotherapist
Why did you become a Soft Tissue Therapist? In my time in swimming I was fortunate to work with a lot of talented therapists who helped me achieve my best in the sport by keeping my body functioning at its optimum level. Because of this, I developed a real appreciation for the physical and mental benefits of Soft Tissue Therapy. Through my sport and study of Exercise Science I developed a keen interest in the physiology of the human body and I love passing on my knowledge and skills to benefit others.
What sort of patients do you most enjoy helping? As a former elite swimmer, I am passionate about helping athletes achieve their overall health and wellbeing.
Interesting things you have done in your career? In 2013 I was invited to attend the South Australian State Championships as a therapist to help treat swimmers during competition.
What do you do to keep fit? I enjoy getting back in the pool once a week for a few laps, as well as training at CrossFit three times a week to help maintain my strength and fitness.
Greatest sporting achievement? Winning the bronze medal in the 50m Breaststroke at the 2009 World Swimming Championships. At the same meet, I was lucky enough to be a part of the 4x100 Medley Relay where we won the silver medal. I had the honour of swimming with teammates, Emily Seebohm, Jessicah Schipper and Libby Trickett.
If you could jump on a plane and visit one city, which would it be? I would definitely head to London for a visit as my sister and her family are living there. I miss them dearly.
Favourite thing to do outside of work? I love spending time with my little man, Owen, and my husband, of course! I also love getting to the beach for a swim.
Where did you grow up? I grew up in Ulladulla, a small country town on the South Coast of NSW.
What is your food weakness? Homemade berry smoothies... and chocolate!
