Nepean Physiotherapy Centre was been a Penrith institution for many years.
Stephen Cunningham and Trisha Cashmere purchased the practice from Sheryl Farquarhson in 1998. In those days they were the only physios and Pam Hughes handled everything behind the desk. Kathryn Charlton, now our longest serving employee joined the team in 2000. She’s still here, so we think she is happy.
The business grew, Stephen and Trisha worked a lot, and some babies were born. By the time the practice moved to new premises at 95 Lethbridge Street Penrith in 2005 there were three Cunningham boys, a couple of extra physios and an expanded support team.
Fast forward and we are starting to see a change in the way that our clients view their health. They don’t just want someone to concentrate on their ache or pain in a narrow way, they are looking for knowledgable health professionals who can support their active healthy lifetyle choices.
And so, The Healthy Body Company brand was launched at new premises at 65 Water Gum Drive, Jordan Springs, with Jude Holroyd as the Practice Principal. Our existing location at 95 Lethbridge Street, Penrith also now operates under The Healthy Body Company banner, and to ensure that Steve could continue to work close to home, a new location (formerly Hardman & McCarthy Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Centre) was opened in Caringbah in 2018.
Our team now comprises Physiotherapists, a brilliant admin team, Massage Therapists, Exercise Physiologists and Trisha who likes to think of herself as the boss. The team is cohesive and supportive and our graduate program provides a fantastic supported development opportunity for newly graduated physiotherapists.
We’ve pulled together a few photos from over the years. We hope you enjoy the little montage. We look forward to seeing you soon as we continue our journey as The Healthy Body Company.
