Phil Romeril grew up in Mid North Coast NSW. After completing his HSC in 1995 he moved to Sydney to pursue a music career. Phil’s first band 2 Litre Dolby gained a strong following through their three releases (including a UK release) and renowned live shows. After 2 Litre Dolby parted ways in mid 2000, Phil and 2 Litre Dolby band mate Leo formed The Small Knives. Phil has shared stages with Nick Cave, The Dirty Three, Iron and Wine, Bill Callahan (Smog), Evan Dando, Art of Fighting, Preston School of Industry, Mark Eitzel, Machine Translations, New Buffalo, Gersey and Architecture in Helsinki.
Choosing to shift away from the music industry in the late 90’s Phil completed a Diploma of Remedial Massage at The Australian Institute of Natural Therapies & his Myotherapy Advanced Diploma at the Victorian College of Health Education. He has also completed Studies in Myofascial Dry Needling, Laser Therapy, Advanced Cupping & Myofascial Release. Phil has worked in both the clinical and corporate sectors of the health industry, with over 20 years of practice he has acquired a broad knowledge of muscular issues and injuries, and is experienced in treating a wide range of postural problems.
Phil began Melbourne Combined Natural Therapies in 2004 as a solo practitioner in a Southbank medical centre. In 2007 Phil moved the practice into a Gym a few doors away and occupied 2 rooms in order to grow the business. 2009 bought a major change as Phil secured a lease for a space within 50 metres of the gym which offered the opportunity to expand the practice by a further 2 rooms. Phil and current business partner Cal Savage relocated the practice to it’s current location within the Southgate complex in 2018 and continue to grow the business including a second location in Little Collins street in the CBD which was opened in 2016.
