a fresh approach in body maintenance.

Restore Prehabilitation & Recovery® offers specialist holistic treatments for your prehabilitation, recovery and mobility requirements.


We use techniques that are as unique as each person, to ensure your personal needs and goals are catered for.

Those little aches and pains or re-occurring minor injuries niggling away, with no reason as to why? Tired of coming across “this is how you will be from now on” or “it’s just part of getting older”? Its ok we are too!

Our approach is not all about what we do to you, it’s about what we can do together.

Restore brings a unique toolbox of systems designed to highlight the potential root causes of pain, decreased mobility and inefficient movement by reviewing the body’s movement on a functional and holistic basis.

These techniques provide us with a range of tools and education to facilitate you to regaining the body’s natural functional movements, whilst reducing the impact of scar tissue and ‘remapping’ the neurological inputs to minimize the body reverting to its previous less efficient state.

By improving inefficient movement, the risks of injury, poor posture, general pain and stress can be lowered, allowing us to develop the concept of prehabilitation outside of its current definition.

Building on many years within competitive sport, the corporate 9-5 and 7 years of Personal Training and Deep Tissue & Sport Massage, research led us to qualify in Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST), developed by the only Stretch to Win Institute® based in the USA; Functional Range Conditioning® and Functional Range Release® systems, providing an advanced and comprehensive system of musculoskeletal assessment, treatment, rehabilitation and conditioning for the soft tissues, joint health and improve USABLE motion across joint(s) to ensure you can maximise YOUR movement potential safely, efficiently and  effectively


Combining these with Sharon Wheeler’s ScarWorks scar tissue therapy and Rocktape Functional Movement Techniques® (FMT), our therapy toolbox is compatible and complementary to traditional Physio, Osteo and Chiropractic approaches. Being 2 of 7 individuals in NZ qualified in FST,  1 of 8 in FRC®, 1 of 1 in FR® spine and the only Sharon Wheeler’s ScarWorks practitioners in NZ, we really do bring a fresh approach to Christchurch and the South Island as a whole.

Working with scars is like speaking a different language in the world of movement and connective tissue. Scar tissue is very dense fascia with unique properties. Sharon Wheeler’s ScarWorks scar tissue therapy approach uses a casual, light touch, no invasive tools.

The work is rarely painful – even for very new scars, and the amount of change in one treatment can be extensive. The cosmetic effect can be profound and the functional changes powerful. Natural and surgical scars of any age typically respond immediately followed by a short period of rapid healing and continued improvement. The improvements are permanent.
