About Alan Johns
Alan is a senior physiotherapist at Terrace Physio Plus, having established the business in Raymond Terrace in 1997. Since graduating from University in 1989, he has completed further training in acupuncture (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and uses this, along with chinese cupping, in many of his treatments.
Alan is a qualified Yoga instructor and has had training in the area of ‘mindfulness for health practitioners’ with Dr Craig Hassed from Monash University. With a background in high level Squash, gymnastics and soccer, he seeks to stay healthy and tries to practice the things he preaches. He enjoys bringing a wide range of approaches to his treatments and embraces the challenge of helping people with difficult cases of chronic pain.
Personal experience with depression also helps him empathise with and care for those struggling with the psychological aspects of illness.
This profession has granted me a way to help others, which has proven within me the inspired words “it is more blessed to give than receive”. Physiotherapy is grounded in science, yet allows space for alternative approaches which assist the whole person, not just the “injured part”. I love witnessing people moving towards health and having the time to do all I can to assist that.
It is a supportive and very friendly workplace, which always allows enough time for each person – so everyone can get the care they need.

Perhaps that I have 8 children – that seems to surprise some people; or that I play the 5 string banjo.
