Treatment with a Feldenkrais Physiotherapist at Free2Move begins in exactly the same way as you would expect with any Physiotherapist.  We start with a comprehensive assessment of your signs and symptoms. We will only use techniques and exercises based on the Feldenkrais Method when it is clinically indicated. This means that it must fall within the accepted scope of clinical practice. Read more…

Now referred to as Exercise Rehab. Many of our clients have previously engaged in exercises that actually made their pain worse. The problem is that many people with pain have posture or movement habits that actually contribute to wear and tear on the body. When you do strengthening exercises without good alignment you strengthen a faulty habit instead of a healthy one. Read more…

Our Process

After your initial assessment consultation we recommend:

In the privacy of our consultation room we gather more information of your condition and goals. Then examine and treat you whilst sitting, standing or on our mechanical table using Physiotherapy techniques, the Feldenkrais method and Pilates exercises. We utilise tools like ultrasound machines, low level laser therapy, dry needling and body manipulation techniques.

Often patients need more than one consultation or require continual one on one treatment. Family members can attend if necessary and special accommodations can be made.

At the end of your initial consultation we agree on a way forward. Be it more individual consultations, small group rehab sessions, floor classes or our unsupervised Pilates program.

Our physiotherapists introduce customised exercises individually to clients in small groups of up to 4. They draw from their experience as Pilates and Feldenkrais practitioners. This involves using Pilates reformer and trapeze tables, fit balls and various stabilisation tools in custom Pilates and Feldenkrais exercises.

Upon request we can give you exercises for home using little or no equipment.

When we’re both confident you’re ready and you’ve completed your customised program you can book into allotted times to use the Pilates equipment unsupervised at a much cheaper rate.

Our physiotherapists hold both Feldenkrais and Pilates floor classes with up to 15 people at “The Chapel Space” on Angove Street. A beautiful space with great light and lots of room to move.

As Feldenkrais practitioners we focus on specific aspects of awareness and movement in a series of classes with a theme. It involves re-training the mind and body to be more aware and efficient at movement such that it can reduce and prevent chronic pain. It provides an ongoing, self-managed treatment to any chronic issues at a price that is sustainable long term.

Our Pilates classes work on core strength, awareness and balance. We focus on the quality of the exercises. When Pilates is done right it can challenge old habits and dramatically increase core strength without overly challenging the body’s limits. Being instructed and supervised by an experienced physio who is still able to give some individual attention in the classes also makes a big difference. The price is affordable to be a long term weekly option to keep you physically motivated.

We aim to improve your quality of life through customised training and treatment.
