What you need to know before joining?

Before joining the classes, is is essential to have an initial assessment with one of our pelvic health physiotherapists. During this assessment we screen for any bladder, bowel or musculoskeletal issues. This will enable us to modify the classes to suit your health and exercise goals.

NEW PATIENTS: An assessment of 45mins is required. This involves a Pelvic Floor Muscle (PFM) Assessment, Rectus Abdominus Diastasis (RAD) Assessment, Real Time Ultrasound, Musculoskeletal screen). This assessment is $120

EXISTING PATIENTS: If you are a Body Sense Physio patient or if you are under the treatment of an external physiotherapist, we require a 30min subsequent appointment to check PFM and RAD. This appointment is $95.

The classes are held at a venue called Movement Zone in Joondalup which offers free parking, air-conditioning, large and clean exercise space, toilets and showering facilities.
