Testimonials:
  • Wil Seto has been the physiotherapist for the Australian Men’s Masters (over 33 years old) team for the last two World Championships Campaigns. He has provided top-level support to the team in managing injury as well as keeping tired aching bodies in top condition for the next day’s play. He has managed our recovery program, massaged and manipulated pain out of our bodies, provided strapping for every imaginable body part and helped us to prepared for the big events. Having Wil on our sideline has contributed strongly to our two consecutive World Championship semi-finals and winning the bronze medal in Prague in 2010. Wil has personally helped me to overcome chronic back pain while playing elite ultimate and I cannot thank him enough for the effective work that he has done with me over the years. As a physiotherapist myself, I feel very comfortable recommending this remarkable professional and hope that we will be able to lure him again to come and work with the Australian team in 2012. Read more

  • Getting Wil to treat my sore neck, shoulders, lower back and hips has been a life-changing experience. I have seen many other physiotherapists in the past, but it wasn’t until I went to Wil that I have regained full motion in these areas after years of improper misuse and a car accident. My performance in ballet, climbing and cross-country skiing has improved immensely and I have an increased body awareness that will help me take care of myself long-term. I am more flexible, more symmetrical and can be more active. Going to Wil is like accessing a number of sport-therapy treatments all at once: he can offer a ‘big picture’ therapy session using his wide-ranging expertise in IMS – Intramuscular stimulation, physiotherapy adjustments, and a keen knowledge of sport specific movements. Thanks to Wil I not only feel better but I have gotten to the root of deep-set issues. I recommend Wil to my family and friends who are experiencing pain or limitations in movement; not only is he a knowledgeable practitioner, he knows the demands of my activities and provides great advice to keep me enjoying them for years to come.  Read more

  • Wil was the team physiotherapist for the 2008 Australian Masters Ultimate team. We made a decision early to find the best physio we could to manage the fitness of our 24 players over the course of the week long World Championships. This is a very grueling test for athletes, with twelve 90-minute games and players covering up to 14 km per game, involving sprinting, diving and sharp changes of direction. Within 2 days Wil had compiled a detailed dossier on each player and had established a routine of pre- and post-game appointments, as well as running repairs on injured players during game time. The result was that our team, with an average age of 35, thrived in the tournament and was physically in the best shape of any team that I have been involved with over the duration of a World Championship. The top Masters Club team from Australia then decided to employ Wil for their campaign for the 2010 World Club Championships in Prague. We will continue to pursue Wil whenever we play, wherever in the world.  Read more

  • I honestly cannot see myself or my body being in the condition that it now is if it wasn’t for Wil.  I had a neck and back injury as a result of a motor vehicle accident.  Prior to treatment from Wil, I had almost no mobility in my neck and was in constant discomfort and pain.  From my first appointment with Wil I instantly felt at ease and had a renewed sense of hope that he was going to make a major difference in my recovery! And he did!  Wil is very proactive and thorough with his manual muscle releases, IMS treatments, and targeted treatment plans I have been able to return to all my normal activities.  I could not recommend a more professional, passionate and down to earth physiotherapist! Read more

Testimonials:
  • Wil Seto has been the physiotherapist for the Australian Men’s Masters (over 33 years old) team for the last two World Championships Campaigns. He has provided top-level support to the team in managing injury as well as keeping tired aching bodies in top condition for the next day’s play. He has managed our recovery program, massaged and manipulated pain out of our bodies, provided strapping for every imaginable body part and helped us to prepared for the big events. Having Wil on our sideline has contributed strongly to our two consecutive World Championship semi-finals and winning the bronze medal in Prague in 2010. Wil has personally helped me to overcome chronic back pain while playing elite ultimate and I cannot thank him enough for the effective work that he has done with me over the years. As a physiotherapist myself, I feel very comfortable recommending this remarkable professional and hope that we will be able to lure him again to come and work with the Australian team in 2012. Read more

  • Getting Wil to treat my sore neck, shoulders, lower back and hips has been a life-changing experience. I have seen many other physiotherapists in the past, but it wasn’t until I went to Wil that I have regained full motion in these areas after years of improper misuse and a car accident. My performance in ballet, climbing and cross-country skiing has improved immensely and I have an increased body awareness that will help me take care of myself long-term. I am more flexible, more symmetrical and can be more active. Going to Wil is like accessing a number of sport-therapy treatments all at once: he can offer a ‘big picture’ therapy session using his wide-ranging expertise in IMS – Intramuscular stimulation, physiotherapy adjustments, and a keen knowledge of sport specific movements. Thanks to Wil I not only feel better but I have gotten to the root of deep-set issues. I recommend Wil to my family and friends who are experiencing pain or limitations in movement; not only is he a knowledgeable practitioner, he knows the demands of my activities and provides great advice to keep me enjoying them for years to come.  Read more

  • Wil was the team physiotherapist for the 2008 Australian Masters Ultimate team. We made a decision early to find the best physio we could to manage the fitness of our 24 players over the course of the week long World Championships. This is a very grueling test for athletes, with twelve 90-minute games and players covering up to 14 km per game, involving sprinting, diving and sharp changes of direction. Within 2 days Wil had compiled a detailed dossier on each player and had established a routine of pre- and post-game appointments, as well as running repairs on injured players during game time. The result was that our team, with an average age of 35, thrived in the tournament and was physically in the best shape of any team that I have been involved with over the duration of a World Championship. The top Masters Club team from Australia then decided to employ Wil for their campaign for the 2010 World Club Championships in Prague. We will continue to pursue Wil whenever we play, wherever in the world.  Read more

  • I honestly cannot see myself or my body being in the condition that it now is if it wasn’t for Wil.  I had a neck and back injury as a result of a motor vehicle accident.  Prior to treatment from Wil, I had almost no mobility in my neck and was in constant discomfort and pain.  From my first appointment with Wil I instantly felt at ease and had a renewed sense of hope that he was going to make a major difference in my recovery! And he did!  Wil is very proactive and thorough with his manual muscle releases, IMS treatments, and targeted treatment plans I have been able to return to all my normal activities.  I could not recommend a more professional, passionate and down to earth physiotherapist! Read more
