Physiotherapist at Mount Annan
Thiwanka Jayamaha (aka TJ) was awarded her Bachelor of Physiotherapy Degree from Western Sydney University where she graduated with distinction. She attained a place on the Dean’s Merit list with each year of her degree. We are thrilled that she is a physiotherapist with our Mount Annan team.
Thiwanka first worked as a qualified graphic designer. A desire to help people, combined with a keen interest in health sciences, led to a turning point in Thiwanka’s life. She decided to pursue a career change to physiotherapy, and she has not looked back!
Thiwanka has gained international experience in musculoskeletal physiotherapy by undertaking a work placement in the Netherlands. Thiwanaka has developed an interest in running group exercise classes for falls prevention, and hopes to launch these in Mount Annan.
Thiwanka has a special interest in cardiorespiratory physiotherapy and believes in empowering her patients in self-management and leading healthy lifestyles. In this field she utilizes a combination of manual techniques and exercise.
In her spare time Thiwanka enjoys traveling and hiking with her partner. She has a passion for traditional Sri Lankan dancing and has been performing for 16 years. On a rainy day you will find Thiwanka curled up reading a book or working on one of her illustrations.
