Aarie joined A+Physio in January 2020 following a year spent in Hawkes Bay. Aarie grew up in Dunedin and played representative Hockey for many years. He’s been through the High Performance Academy and certainly understands the discipline, focus and hard work that goes into top level sports. Through his injuries he learnt what it takes to feel the pain, pause, refocus and stay on track with rehabilitation so your goals can be achieved. His challenges and positive experiences inspired Aarie to chose Physiotherapy as a Career. In his free time he continues to play and coach Hockey, enjoys Golf, Surfing and Diving when he has a chance.
