BSc (Hons) Podiatry


Dr Rachel Timmins graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Hons) Degree in Podiatry in the United Kingdom in 1997 and worked within both the public and private health sectors until emigrating to Australia in 2002.

Once in Australia she taught on the undergraduate podiatry program for 3 years at Curtin University as a clinical supervisor and was a lecturer in nail surgery, local anaesthesia and orthopaedics whilst also undertaking work in private practice and beginning a surgical training program in 2005.

In 2008 Dr Timmins decided to leave the surgical program and open her own clinic and The Foot Pod opened in August 2008.

Rachel has continued to add to her clinical expertise in treating foot problems since this time by doing extra training in the following areas:

  • Accreditation in Shockwave Therapy
  • Foot and Ankle Manipulation and Mobilisation
  • Kinesio Taping (levels 1′ 2 & 3)
  • Acupuncture and Dry Needling for podiatrists
  • Advanced Acupuncture for podiatrists.

Dr Timmins has a special interest in acupuncture for podiatry, diabetes and children’s foot problems and, having an 8-year-old boy, makes her the ideal person to discuss your child’s foot problems with.
