My name is Ana-Lisa and I provide individualized treatments using a variety of techniques that I have acquired over the years, such as pain relieving massage, myofascial release, dry needling, taping, POLD Oscillations, joint mobilizations, cognitive relaxation, explain pain, active isolated stretching and functional exercise programs.

Experienced, effective and efficient. “I take great effort in helping reduce patients’ pain and improving their wellbeing in as few sessions as possible”


Ana Lisa Romao

I graduated from Wits with a BSc in Physiotherapy in 2004, completed 1 year of Community Service at Pretoria Academic Hospital, and then went to work in Private Practice at Northgate Physiotherapy Practice with Erica Wagner who taught me so much and helped shape the therapist that I am today.

In March 2007 I moved to Maputo, Mozambique, to open my own private practice, as one of the very few qualified Physiotherapist's in the country. As an adjunct I also ran a fitness studio and offered Core, Active Stretching, Oriental Dancing, Zumba and Rebounding classes.


I have completed various courses over the years including Incontinence, Advanced Dry Needling, Sacro Iliac Dysfunction, Spinal Manipulation, Explain Pain, Introduction to NLP, Functional Neuromuscular Rehabilitation, Taping Techniques,and Active Isolated Stretching to name a few.

I received a Mastery Certification in Manual Therapy (MCMT) in 2010.

​In March 2017 I participated in the first POLD course in South Africa.

I love the work that I do. Being able to help people with their pain and limitations is challenging but rewarding. I cannot imagine myself doing any other type of work.

If your body is screaming in pain, a first step in releasing the pain may be making the connection between your body pain and the cause. “Beliefs are physical. A thought held long enough and repeated enough becomes a belief. The belief then becomes biology.

My Treatment Philosophy

In my practice each patient is an individual with specific needs. There are no recipes for treatments.

Each person is assessed holistically, considering the physical and emotional issues, problems and limitations.

I use education, massage therapy, cognitive relaxation and other techniques to relieve and treat pain, reduce stress and restore well-being.
