Requel Trevillion graduated from Sydney University with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Physiotherapy) with Distinction in 1995. She started her career at Royal North Shore Hospital and then set off to travel abroad and work in the UK for three years.
Returning to Sydney, Requel worked in a number of leading private practices developing a wide range of manual therapy skills including the Mulligan technique, muscle energy and connective tissue massage.
In 2000, Requel joined Physiocise, a leading exercise-based practice who deliver functional movement programmes for chronic back pain. It was here Requel developed a love for educating clients about their bodies, movement and using exercise as a form of treatment. She specialised in teaching children the importance of good posture and how to keep growing bodies fit and strong. She developed an education and exercise program which has been presented to over 12 000 children in NSW schools. Requel has always enjoyed teaching and presenting and for many years has used these skills to educate fitness professionals on injury prevention and how to teach exercise safely.
Requel is part of the Australian Physiotherapy Paediatric Group and works with children of all ages. As a mother of two and being hypermobile herself, she has a particular interest in teaching kids fun and practical ways to keep their body straight and core strong. She runs small group exercise classes for children 8-16yrs.
