It’s child’s play at Stellar Physio
CORALIE Doig has returned to physiotherapy full-time after having two children, opening a new business with one of the first children’s studios.
The City Beach resident and her husband Michael Doig opened Stellar Physio last month.
The crèche that doubles as a children’s treatment room greets patients at the reception of the Subiaco business.
“Our receptionist can keep an eye on the kids and when it starts to get busy, we’ll employ someone to mind them,” Mrs Doig said.
“We can also treat kids through play… if we take them through to the kids room with games and puzzles, we’ll have more success.”
The Doigs have employed four physiotherapists covering children’s and sport physiotherapy and clinical Pilates to complement the Sarah Key method that Mrs Doig is accredited in.
Sydney-based Sarah Key focuses on relieving back pain through heel mobilisations and the backblock.
Mrs Doig is one of three Perth physiotherapists accredited in the Sarah Key method.
She co-owned a practice in East Victoria Park for nine years and sold her share to have children, who are now aged six and four.
“I missed the patient contact after 18 months, so I worked for someone two days a week and realised I had to be my own boss again,” Mrs Doig. “I love managing people.”
