It’s child’s play at Stel­lar Physio

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Business - By DENISE S. CAHILL

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.”
