NOOSA PHYSIOTHERAPIST & POSTURE SPECIALIST
Karakrista specialises in treating your whole body through your postural alignment, to alleviate the foundational imbalances that lead to pain and dysfunction.
She sees the body in a holistic light, addressing the cause of pain to create lasting outcomes and longterm freedom of movement.
Are you struggling with chronic aches, pain and stiffness in your joints?
You've had lots of treatment and done exercises but the pain just keeps coming back?
Do you want to get to the root cause, heal it and experience the joy of moving with ease?
Did you know that your posture could be the cause of your ongoing musculoskeletal pain?
"Gravity is a force that never sleeps." Karakrista
Your posture is the foundation for all movement.
If you have imbalanced posture and mobility, gravity creates an omnipresent stress on the areas that take the greater load and your natural muscular function becomes distorted over time, leading to injury and disease.
Karakrista has had a life long passion for postural alignment having experienced the profound effects of realigning her own posture in her thirties.
After decades of empirical observation and research with her clients, using postural realignment as the foundation for healing, she has created a Postural Realignment Program that addresses our innermost core and deep postural muscles for optimal body function.

What to Expect
Karakrista's holistic physiotherapy consultations provide generous space to discuss and assess all the factors that may be contributing to your condition and discover what you need to activate your body's innate, natural healing process.
Karakrista will explore your lifestyle choices, posture, gait, movement patterns and psychological wellbeing to understand the source (sometimes multiple) of your pain, which determines the focus for the session.
Each session may be different as your condition evolves and changes. Treatment may include postural alignment training, deep therapeutic massage, mobilisations to create space in the joints and release soft tissue limitations, practices to re-align the spine through deep stretching and training in new functional movement patterns to counterbalance poor postural habits of a lifetime.
Whatever your body requires almost all sessions involve a hands-on treatment and specifically targeted, transformational exercises to enhance your posture and function and give you the tools and education to lead you succinctly
along your optimum healing path.
