There are often mixed feelings when Broken Hill’s youth leave the region to explore career options elsewhere, but the Morley siblings serve as a great example of how the community can benefit from their eventual return.
All skilled-up with formal qualifications and extensive experience, ready to support family, friends, and residents of their much missed region with a range of health services on offer under one roof, Nerissa Morley-Coulls, and her brother, Principal Director, James Morley are open for business.
Natural Revolution Group Pty Ltd (NRG) was based in Chrystal St for several years, but the entrepreneurial siblings recently purchased and renovated the old camping store at 71 Oxide St, and relocated their team to the very fresh, modern clinic.
Aiming to support the Silver City’s existing health services with physiotherapy, sports physiotherapy, massage therapy, and more, with regular visits from Total Body Photography skin cancer detection practitioner, Sharon, they’d like other health professionals to join them.
With a Masters degree in Human Movement, plus another in Physiotherapy amongst her qualifications, Ms Morley-Coulls started the company employing a team to work with corporate clients, later working with the Australian Institute of Fitness, and leading the Australian Institute of Massage for five years. She’s also worked with the Australian Sprint Cycling Team, and the Croatian soccer team, as well as Adelaide City Force soccer team.
Ms Morley-Coulls told us, “we’re here to bring allied health services together more by exploring different pathways to attract a multidisciplinary rural workforce with access to Telehealth, and to achieve a rural workforce platform, offering easy access to health care and helping our community to achieve a better quality of life without the need to leave town for services.”
“She’s a real gun,” says Mr Morley proudly about his sister. “She’s been a big source of inspiration for me, so long story short, I ended up getting the company a contract working with the Adelaide Thunderbirds [netball team] where we spent seven years working with them.”
Spending a decade in Broken Hill underground, Mr Morley felt inspired by his sister’s adventures. Now with a Bachelor of Exercise Sports Science and a Masters in Exercise Physiology, he gave us a guided tour of the clinic, explaining how each apparatus works.
“Our state-of-the-art hydraulic based equipment can be used for rehabilitation – pre-operative or post-operative – or it can be used to support athletic performance,” said Mr Morley.
With a squat and chest press, a knee machine, hip machine, and functional training system (FTS), all equipment is designed to provide a smooth flow of weight shifting, and to measure the power ratio for an individual’s range of motion.
“We are with each client all the way, sometimes working with small groups up to four, supporting their use of our equipment, so it’s safe and effective when used correctly,” said Mr Morley.
NRG work closely with existing medical providers, including the Local Health District, and they’re keen for other health professionals to join them.
“What really makes NRG is we have such a good team and everyone here really wants to be here,” said Mr Morley. “Our two receptionists have started studying, one completing Massage Therapy qualifications, and the other doing Health Science online. We’re keen to employ a homegrown team here, so we encourage anyone with skills suited to NRG health services to join us at our new clinic.”
