At Therapy Works we are lucky enough to offer the services of two very talented Physiotherapists who offer slightly different therapeutic approaches.
Mia Sherman is a qualified Physiotherapist and Clinical Pilates Instructor who has worked on the Northern Beaches over 25 years. Mia uses clinical pilates to assist her clients to regain strength, balance and stability in their bodies or to deal with specific injury or health conditions. After an initial one-to-one assessment, Mia will propose a sequence of exercises using a reformer and other pilates equipment which can be undertaken in a small group setting (maximum 3 clients). Mia also offers Physiotherapy advice and treatments as needed and is available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturday mornings by appointment.
Liz Bennett has worked for 20 years as a Physiotherapist and yoga teacher with a background of study in acupuncture. She is one of few Physiotherapists in Sydney who is also a Yoga Therapist. Her training means she is specialised in teaching yoga to help alleviate the symptoms of injuries and chronic illnesses.
Liz uses hands on treatment and tools to manage underlying factors and help you move beyond your symptoms, aiming to help you achieve the best long term outcome from physical therapy. Consultations incorporate soft- tissue techniques, massage, exercises, movement and posture retraining, coupled with take- home advice. And if you want to start a yoga practice to alleviate pain and stiffness, to move, breathe, meditate and feel better – or if you are returning to yoga while recovering from injury or illness – you may benefit from an individualised, balanced yoga approach. If so, a combined approach of Yoga Therapy and Physiotherapy with Liz may be for you.
Both our Physiotherapists are registered Medicare Providers and Health Fund Rebates may be applicable. They can provide treatment for:
