At Clinical Physio, you can choose your level of supervision, between private 1 on 1, up to a class of 4.
You will first undergo a full, 1-Hour assessment with a Clinical Pilates Instructor and Physiotherapist, Jessica Findlay, Hannah Campbell, Maya Patel, Mikaela Rifkin or Kurt Walker.
For private and Clinical Rehab classes, your exercises will then be prescribed based on the findings of the physiotherapy assessment, which are aligned with your functional goals.
