NewStaffOur team is committed to providing clients with caring, personalised and high-quality physiotherapy services to help them achieve their health and fitness goals and improve their quality of life. Hands-on therapy and acupuncture are used to address joint and muscle dysfunctions and improve postural alignment and biomechanics. This is used in conjunction with exercise programs, based on the Pilates method, to re-educate weakened muscles. Together these treatment tools assist us in effectively rehabilitating our clients to their best possible state-of-health. With our focus on our “Whole of Body” therapy approach and self-management, our clients are empowered with the knowledge and skills to manage their own conditions in the long-term as well as seeing the short-term results.
