What Do I Bring To My Appointment?
Please bring any referral letters and relevant test results such as x-rays.
Does Private Health Insurance Cover My Treatment?
This will depend on your policy. Most policies with ancillary or extras cover will provide a rebate for Physiotherapy and Pilates classes.
What should I wear?
We recommend loose, comfortable clothing that will not restrict movement.
Do I Need A Doctors Referral?
No, you do not need a Doctors referral to see a Physiotherapist.
What method of payment can I use?
We accept Cash, Cheques, Visa, MasterCard but do not accept AMEX.
What is your cancelllation policy?
We require a minimum of 24 hours notice to cancel an appointment.
How long is each Pilate’s class?
The Pilate’s classes are 40 minutes in duration.
How many participants are there in each class?
There are 3 people per class and every class is taken by a physiotherapist.
Regular Pilates is conducted by a Pilates instructor, whereas Clinical Pilates is prescribed and supervised by a Clinical Pilates trained Physiotherapist. This difference is very important because a Physiotherapist, unlike a Pilates instructor, has an in-depth knowledge of injury, pathology, bodily function and healing. This knowledge allows a Physiotherapist to assess each patient and determine which exercises will be the most effective for each individual.
What should I bring with me to my initial pilates assessment?
Please bring any Doctors letters and Xrays/ultrasound/MRI reports.
