MEET OUR TEAM
Villene graduated from the University of Pretoria as a physiotherapist in 1992. She was employed by a well-established sports practice in Pretoria, where she developed a keen interest in the management of musculoskeletal, orthopedic and bio-mechanical dysfunctions in sport, and set out to develop her career in this field. In 1994 Villene participated in the first groundbreaking master’s degree in Sport at the physiotherapy department of Tukkies. During the first few years of her career, she traveled with various sports teams as on-field physio. As a keen long-distance runner at the time, she represented and assisted Reparil-gel as part of a physio-team at sponsored races in Johannesburg and Pretoria.
Her participation in several sports (long-distance running, mountain biking, spinning, river canoeing, sprint canoeing, weight training, Pilates, netball and later golf) assisted in establishing an understanding in pursuing possibilities to adapt physiotherapy-treatment and training-programs that enabled an athlete to train wisely, whilst participating in a sports program without enduring unnecessary long periods of rest. Villene now incorporates this experience into improving general movement dysfunctions in the daily living of her patients.
In 1996 she established a private practice in Pretoria. Juggling time between married life, children and managing a busy practice, she developed her art of treatment techniques and enriched her career with a variety of educational evidence-based courses until the young family relocated to Johannesburg in 2001.
Johannesburg was the perfect setting to continue her treatment approach in teaching the balance between mind, spirit and body facilitating healthy daily movement patterns. The family relocated to the beautiful mountains of the Winelands in 2007.
This is where she Established a private practice in Franschhoek and in Pearl Valley golf estate. Her interest in golf injuries was followed by completing A masters thesis from Stellenbosch University in 2014.
The masters’ thesis focused on the search for solutions in lumbar pain and the correlation of passive hip-rotation-rom in golfers. This thesis was published as a research article.
The continued expansion of the practice led to offices in Ceciliasquare in Paarl.
