Jeff Fox (Owner and lead Physiotherapist)
Jeff has a wealth of exercise and physiotherapy experience starting with his degree in Physical Education from Otago University. In his final year he specialised in Exercise Physiology, exercise prescription and biomechanics achieving A grades for these subjects and topics that are used on a daily basis with educating his clients.
After finishing his degree at Otago, Jeff lectured at Manawatu Polytechnic teaching students in the Certificate and Diploma in Exercise Physiology. This involved training students for roles in the fitness industry. During this time he developed a passion for training athletes and getting involved in their rehab, this required specialised training and the need for a post graduate physiotherapy course.
Jeff completed his specialist training at Glasgow Calendonian University, a two year accelerated Masters course. He then worked for four years in London hospitals including West Middlesex and Hammersmith Hospital. Upon his return to New Zealand in 2002, Jeff continued to established Aspiring Health in Taupo, this quickly grew from a one person Physiotherapy clinic to four Physiotherapists within a year. Jeff sold Aspiring Health and took a well-deserved break but realised his passion for Physiotherapy was still there and established Physio2U. This Physiotherapy service focused on those who preferred care in their home or workplace or were simply unable to get to a clinic, this quickly outgrew itself and the FoxPhysio Clinic was established.
Clinically Jeff is passionate about all those he treats but loves helping those with orthopaedic and sports injuries and getting them back running with and emphasis on good manual therapy to get things moving again and the rehab required to the get the muscle back up and firing.
When not working or looking after his three children Jeff is out there doing anything and everything outdoors, he is passionate about most sports but trail running takes the forefront with “The Goat” his favourite event. He also skis when he can and now plays social hockey as all three of his children play.

Anna has more than 10 years experience as a Physiotherapist and has also been qualified and registered as a Hand Therapist since 2012. Taupo has not had a hand therapist for 4-5 years so it is great to be able to offer this service to the Taupo public.
