From humble beginnings

A quarter of a century ago, Gill Webb hung out her physio sign on Manukau Rd in central Auckland in a tiny one room practice. The journey to Active+ had begun. Shaped by overseas experience, Gill had a vision to deliver health and wellness services that were needed and trusted by the community. At the time, what was seen by the public as ‘physiotherapy’ was loosely defined, and hugely variable between physiotherapy practitioners.

So, Gill set out to try and address those issues, and the Active Physio brand therefore came into being, to identify that exercise and client participation are the cornerstones of recovery and long term benefit.

This initial practice soon outgrew the space, and moved across the road to bigger premises, to where the Manukau Rd clinic still stands today. Other Physios embraced her vision and could see what they could achieve collectively for their clients and communities, and came onboard. So, it wasn’t long before Active Physio expanded to other locations in Auckland, and then out of Auckland into the North Island.

As we grew to understand the needs of the communities we represented, we attracted other allied health and exercise professionals to fulfil the original vision of delivering holistic solutions to our clients’ problems, and promote preventative injury and wellness services.

To a bright future

Today we are known as Active+, the “plus" being that we are more than just physio and pilates; and now offer comprehensive rehabilitation services that include health professionals such as physiotherapists, occupational therapists, vocational consultants, psychologists, counsellors, social workers, speech language therapists, nutritionists and medical specialists.

We currently have over 20 franchise clinics, spanning from the Manawatu to Northland. There are approximately 200 clinicians delivering services to New Zealanders every day in their work places, in their homes and from the practices. With our network of services and providers, we are helping to fulfil Gill’s original vision, and can help you with almost anything in terms of prevention, rehabilitation and wellness.

And the wonderful thing about it is that after 25 years, it still feels like we have only just begun!
