Zee Sharif

Advanced Men and Women's Pelvic Floor Health Physio

Hi, I'm Zee, a senior physiotherapist at Return To Form. 13 years ago I set out to provide a better physio experience in my part of Auckland.

I have a hands-on holistic approach combining my acupuncture, Pilates, and general physio skills for your needs. I specialise and have extensive knowledge with pregnancy, women and men’s pelvic floor health, clinical Pilates, and cancer rehabilitation. My goal is to prepare you for what lies ahead and to get your body to work with you, not against you.

I once had a 31 year old new mum-to-be come in for an appointment for a rather difficult pregnancy. Even though Mary wanted to be physically active, she was hesitant, which was understandable. So I assessed her and guided her with safe movement and exercises to get her in good form, be comfortable with her body, build up her strength, and get rid of any aches and pains. We prepared her for her big day and she's been happy and active ever since, even with bubba at her hip.

I love being able to make a difference in someone's life. Let me made a difference for yours.

Lucas Borato

Senior Sports Injuries Physiotherapist

With 7 years of physio experience, I’ve joined Return To Form to serve the communities of Wynyard Quarter, the Viaduct and Ponsonby. 

One of my favourite success stories was when I helped Marcelo, a 32 year old professional footballer, recover from a massive knee injury. He was devastated because he could no longer play football. As an elite athlete he had to undergo surgery to be able to return to sport. When Marcelo arrived at the clinic he was very afraid of having to stop playing as he had a similar injury just a couple years before on the same knee resulting in a total of about three-years time loss. 

Marcelo and I worked together over nine months. During our physio rehab sessions, I created a robust exercise-based protocol, and we were able to strengthen and recover his leg and prepare him to go back into playing. Now, Marcelo is retired from football but he was able to play for four more years at a high level. 

I’d love for you to be our next success story.

Sharon Shan Qu

Senior Acupuncturist

I am Sharon Shan Qu, a licensed acupuncturist, working with the Ponsonby and Wynyard Quarter community for over 6 years. I specialise in the treatment of ACC injuries, pain management, and internal disorders such as insomnia, stress, depression, obesity, pregnancy, and menstrual disorders.

One of my recent success stories is that of Sara, who suffered from constant anxiety attacks and had negative side effects from the antidepressants she was prescribed. After three months of acupuncture treatments with me, Sara was able to stay home alone, drive, and take care of her children. She may not be 100% well yet but she's on her way to getting her life back.

I understand that seeking treatment can be daunting, but I assure you that I will work with you every step of the way to ensure that you receive the care and support you need. If you're looking for a skilled and compassionate acupuncturist, I would be honoured to work with you. Contact me today to schedule an appointment and start your journey towards optimal health and wellness.

I received my master's degree in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine from Hunan University of Chinese Medicine in 2012. Since then, I have dedicated myself to helping my patients achieve optimal health and wellness. My professional interests include the rehabilitation of patients and helping them improve their symptoms.

I believe that the key to good health and wellness goes beyond the treatment room. That is why I maintain a healthy lifestyle through exercise and gardening. These personal interests help me stay in top physical and mental shape, which allows me to better serve my patients.
