Joe Rowley is a physiotherapist and performance coach. His combined experience across multiple health related professions have lead to a diversity of experiences ranging from training professional athletes to assisting individuals with severe disabilities.
Joe’s philosophy is centred around key principles drawn from the physical, biological and behavioural sciences. His approach to physiotherapy encompasses thorough and functionally relevant assessments and the application of individualised manual therapy and movement based rehabilitation strategies. As a performance coach he takes pride in assisting athletes to become more resilient and robust and in maximising the transfer of training related adaptations to athletic performance.
Joe attained his physiotherapy degree from AUT in 2014. Since then he has completed a Fellowship in Applied Functional Science under Gary Grey and Dr. David Tiberio in Michigan, U.S.A (2015), a performance specialisation certification with EXOS (2016) and is currently undergoing further training through the Australian Strength and Conditioning Association. Prior to becoming a physiotherapist and performance coach Joe trained and worked as a clinical massage therapist completing a diploma in clinical sports therapy under the tutelage of Roger Gooch in 2007.
Outside of work Joe enjoys martial arts, is a keen surfer, a coffee enthusiast and most of all a proud Dad. He and his family have recently settled in New Plymouth and are looking forward to getting to know the community and exploring the Taranaki region.
