Elisa Bonini

BSc(Hons), P.G. Cert, MISCP, Member of IAHT, Registered Member HTNZ

Elisa is a valued member of the Hand Therapy Clinic Team having joined in January 2023.

Elisa is originally from Italy, but completed her BSc in Physiotherapy at University College Dublin in Ireland.  She first discovered Hand Therapy during a college placement where she discovered a passion for this medical speciality.

After graduation, she moved to New Zealand to follow her interest in hand and upper limb rehabilitation. She worked in Auckland in a private clinic specialising in Hand Therapy, where she became a Registered Hand Therapist with Hand Therapy New Zealand. This process involved (among other things) a significant number of clinical hours, postgraduate studies and specialised courses.

Elisa moved back to Ireland in 2019 and continues working in Hand Therapy full time.  She continues to develop her clinical practice in attending relevant conferences and courses and staying up to date with recent evidence based practice.

In her spare time she loves playing the cello, sewing and nature hikes.
