Suc­cess­ful physio busi­ness goes on sale

The Observer - - NEWS -

“HEALTH care starts in the car park.”

That’s the be­lief of El­iz­a­beth Orr, owner of El­iz­a­beth Orr Phys­io­ther­apy and Acupunc­ture, in Glad­stone.

“When you walk into a stan­dard physio prac­tice it’s nor­mally a bed with a cur­tain and a few plas­tic chairs,” El­iz­a­beth said.

“That says straight up what you’re worth - when you sit in a plas­tic chair and some­one comes out and says ‘next’.”

El­iz­a­beth has sought to cre­ate a wel­com­ing space for clients, right down to pro­vid­ing the lat­est mag­a­zines on the cof­fee table.

While she has run her self-ti­tled busi­ness for about 10 years, she only moved into the cur­rent Toolooa St ad­dress about three years ago.

Af­ter spend­ing much of that time com­plet­ing the set-up, El­iz­a­beth has de­cided to sell the busi­ness for one sim­ple rea­son - to spend more time with her fam­ily.

Although she wants to sell, she said she hoped the new owner would al­low her to con­tinue on as a physio.

“If I am not the big name (on the wall) that’s fine,” she said.

“I’m just a mum with three kids and I’m busy busy, busy,” she said.

“What I’m try­ing to do is work bet­ter.”
