Jaimee Knight

Jaimee is an Otago trained Physiotherapist who has been working in the health and sport industry for over sixteen years. As a qualified sports medic she has worked intensely with various rugby teams and has also developed a passion for youth aged sports teams, having worked as a volunteer with Basketball NZ for a number of years.

Jaimee has worked in America as a Physiotherapist and as a Fitness Manager running personal training sessions and classes in a multi complex gym.

Having developed a passion for natural movement and exercise in daily living and rehabilitation she has recently become SFMA (functional movement assessment) certified. This is a movement assessment which holistically looks at the body’s movement patterns as a whole and systematically identifies and treats the impairments.

More recently, Jaimee has completed further studies to gain a Masters in Teaching and Learning, with the hopes to one day teach in a physiotherapy school. In 2022, she completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Maori Health.

In her spare time Jaimee enjoys baking, reading, watching movies and spending time with her family. Her future goals include continuing to develop functional movement skills (and integrating this into her physiotherapy practice) and to build a dirt rally car and compete in NZ.
