effective treatments helping you

return to your full potential

welcome to aura health & physiotherapy


I have always believed that everyone has the right to be as healthy, happy and pain-free as possible and to do the things they want to do for as long as they like.

I am a passionate and driven therapist, and have been working for a number of years under a very thorough and multi-faceted approach to care. This has enabled me to be in a position where I can accurately diagnose and treat a variety of conditions, injuries and problems. I opened Aura at the end of 2016, when I relocated to the Sunshine Coast.

I hold degrees in both Physiotherapy and in Human Movement Studies (Exercise Physiology/Sports Science), as well as further qualifications in Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Integrative Acupuncture, and Dry-Needling. I recently retired from being an international-level athlete, representing Australia in Taekwondo.

My passion is in integrative health and bridging the gap between the alternative therapy realm and the western medical model realm, as I believe that in combining the two approaches we have the most scope for improving outcomes. I have worked in the field of energetic therapies for a number of years and have travelled internationally to work at health and healing retreats.

My favourite place to be is at the beach, so I feel very fortunate to be within the Sunshine Coast community. I look forward to working with you soon!


Kasia Bartnikowska

Founder and Principal Therapist



energy therapy



Kasia was responsible for recognising and resolving a misdiagnosed injury I had. Without her first-rate diagnosis and treatment skills I would never have been able to continue playing the sport I love. Since then, Kasia has remained my trusted go-to person for any sport injuries or when my body and health isn’t feeling right. As a football coach, I only send my players her way knowing they’ll be healthier and stronger as fast as possible. Skilled, caring, peaceful and friendly, Kasia turns a normally stressful time into a positive process.”

Kasia is a wonderful therapist! I had seen multiple physios and chiropractors to address my lower back for years and was never able to. I tried yoga and Pilates to resolve the tightness and pain, I was determined to continue exercising but was always forced to stick to very basic movements to avoid aggravating the problem. Kasia then diligently worked to resolve the issue while taking a real interest in my overall health and happiness. Can’t recommend her enough!

“I’ve been seeing Kasia for treatment for the past 3 years and she is by far the best therapist I have come across. She is very professional, knowledgable, friendly and supportive. Kasia always takes time to listen to all of my concerns. She has successfully treated my back and neck injury, and provides me with great advice on pain and injury management. I highly recommend her.”
