Your program will be tailored to fit into your routine so can be performed either at home, with your physiotherapist in our gym space or in one of our small groups. Your program can include both clinical pilates, strength training and stretching.  We also provide GLA:D (Osteoarthritis programs) and PINC (Cancer recovery programs), read below for more information.

Pilates Clinic In Ascot Vale & surrounds

Our clinic is based in Ascot Vale but we have welcomed clients from Moonee Ponds, Pascoe Vale & surrounding suburbs to try out our clinical pilates reformer programs.

Clinical Pilates & Remedial Pilates Ascot Vale:

Pilates is a form of exercise that teaches your body how to move efficiently while strengthening your core, building stability, and improving your posture and fitness.

The term “Clinical pilates” refers to the use of pilates exercises to specifically address imbalances in your body that can cause injury and dysfunction. Our physiotherapists use pilates techniques to re-educate you how to move and improve your technique and avoid injury.

We use clinical pilates to:

  • Treat injuries, both in rehabilitation and prevention

  • Manage pain

  • Retrain and strengthen posture and control

  • Pre and post natal exercise and recovery

Our rehab studio is equipped with a whole range of pilates equipment including reformers, trapeze and wunda chair.  Clinical pilates provided by a physiotherapist can be claimed on private health insurance or third party claims (e.g. Work Cover, TAC, DVA).

Functional Strength training:

Functional strengthening refers to a strength program that is designed to help improve your ability to complete your day to day goals.  This may include the ability to lift loads overhead, to walk and stand throughout the whole day, to complete manual labour jobs or to simply get out of a chair. We use equipment such as free weights, smith machine, resistance bands and body weight exercises to load your program safely to build muscle, control and support for your joints.

LOUISE HATELEY

Director/Physiotherapist

Louise has been working as a physiotherapist for over 20 years. Throughout the early stages of her career, she used her profession to experience a wide scope of health settings ranging from working with a predominantly remote aboriginal client base in the Physiotherapy Rehabilitation Centre at the Royal Darwin Hospital, through to spending several years as a physiotherapist at the National Sports Centre in London where she worked with elite athletes including the British Diving Team and London Towers basketball teams. 

Louise has always been a runner and a fitness enthusiast herself, and her passion in her career was the ability to use her skills and knowledge to help her clients reach their full potential and achieve their goals.  After settling in Ascot Vale and having three children of her own, Louise’s professional focus switched to helping women maintain fitness and health throughout the journey of pregnancy and motherhood.  She moved into Womens Health Physiotherapy and Pelvic Floor management with an emphasis on rehabilitating women following pregnancy and birth using pilates, exercise and pelvic floor strengthening.  

 

She is passionate about increasing “womens health talk” and normalising these discussions about issues such as prolapse and incontinence so that women don’t have to feel that they need to hide something that affects most women and can be treated.

Lou also runs our GLA:D exercise groups, which is a program designed to help people with Osteoarthritis to reduce pain and improve functions. She is passionate about women's health at all stages and uses this to guide the team to deliver excellent service.

In his downtime, Hui Le enjoys doing all things active including weight training, playing basketball and exploring the outdoors.
