Our Story

EMF Physio was established in September 2017 by physiotherapists Paul Michael and Alister Cran. With both physiotherapists having extensive experience in running their own practice, they were offered a unique opportunity to operate out of the EMF gyms and utilise all their facilities. With a vast amount of facilities at their disposal, including; altitude rooms, pools, and state of the art rehab equipment, they set out to establish a well-run physiotherapy practice with a focus on quality hands-on therapy techniques.

Hi, my name is Alister Cran. I graduated my double degree of physiotherapy/exercise science at Griffith University on the Gold Coast in 2012. Shortly after I moved to Sydney where I was fortunate enough to get a job in a highly respected physiotherapy practice. This physiotherapy practice caters to elite action sports teams around the world. Through this I garnered an enormous amount of experience treating high profile athletes in stressful situations. After my experience in Sydney I moved back to the Gold Coast in 2015 and opened up a small Physiotherapy Practice on Isle of Capri; Physio on Capri. In October 2017 I teamed up with Paul and the Moving With Easy team to Provide our physiotherapy services out of the EMF performance Centre in Robina. With all the facilities at EMF (including altitude rooms!) at our disposal, I am committed to providing the highest quality care I can to my clients.

I have always enjoyed an active and healthy lifestyle. This lifestyle has sparked my interest in may sports, namely surfing, skating and surf life-saving.

Through years of enjoying recreational sports, I have become particularly keen on learning and understanding the body and how it adapts to external stressors. Being able to empathize with clients and their injuries is a major part of our job and helps steer my treatments toward exercise modification rather avoidance. This ensures that my clients get back to the sports that they love sooner and with a better understanding on how to prevent injury in the future.

Feel free to book your 15 minute free injury screening at our EMF practice if you would like to prevent injury and continue doing the things you love!

Hi, my name is Paul Michael. I graduated in 2001 at the University of Queensland and so have now been a physiotherapist for 16 years. I have operated my own business on the Gold Coast since 2010 and for the past 3 years have owned a clinic in Robina Town Centre, called “Moving with Ease”. In October 2017 I was extremely excited to join the EMF Performance Centre in Robina, and offer my services there, along with my colleague Alister Cran. EMF offers a world class set-up with a wide variety of resistance machines, cardio, functional training equipment, and the added bonus of two fantastic altitude training rooms. This set-up gives any therapist a tremendous platform to indulge in a wide variety of effective therapies.

Over the years as a physiotherapist my scope of practice has evolved into more than just treating the musculoskeletal system – I now have a keen interest in the nerves and brain and how this important system affects the health of our body and mind.

With a deeper understanding of the brain and body I find it always fascinating to assess and treat each new individual case and observe how each system interacts. I have an appreciation not only how people move, but also how they breathe, sleep, eat and think. As a service provider to EMF, Alister and I would be happy to offer a free 15 min consult to give you a diagnosis and plan for any issues you’re facing.
