Physiotherapy Pilates Integrated


Physiotherapy at Self Love Pilates

Feel better fast!

Physiotherapy is a field of medicine intended to treat a disease, injury, or deformity via methods such as exercise, manual therapy, massage, and education.


Pilates naturally falls into rhythm with physiotherapy. Its exercises are gaining ground in the research as part of the treatment plans for issues such as:



Ankylosing Spondylitis


Age-related decline          


Chronic Low Back pain

Sports Injury prevention


Athletes Competitive advantage                          


and much more.

                                                        Physiotherapy at Self-love Pilates


If you have an issue like pain, injury, deformity, or disease and would like to know if physiotherapy could be appropriate for you, we’d love to help!

You can book an assessment with our physiotherapist, Tamara Oakley, where she will ask a series of questions about you and your health/goals and then perform a series of tests to look at things like your nerve health, range of motion, strength, joint stability, etc. The results of these tests will help her determine the best treatment plan for you.

If your condition is best treated with a physical therapy plan that includes pilates, we can get you started on an individualized physical therapy program including pilates exercises supervised by a physical therapy support worker (and registered pilates instructor), and other physiotherapy services according to your needs.

If your condition is best treated with a physical therapy or other plan that is not appropriate for the services available at Self-Love pilates, Tamara will provide you with a plan to meet your needs.

Ready, Get Set → Go for your Goals!

Please note:
While you do not require a doctor’s note for a physiotherapist to assess you, it is often a good idea to have your doctor involved in a team approach to your care and some third party insurance providers may require you to do so in order for them to cover your physiotherapy care. Also, while many third party insurance providers cover physiotherapy services provided by a PTSW (Physical Therapy Support Worker), some do not. For example, Pacific Blue Cross discontinued coverage of services provided by a PTSW in November 2023. Typically, it is best to check with your third party insurance provider to confirm your coverage.

Also, physiotherapy services are those that pertain to things like pain, a disease, injury or deformity. Once you are healed or you or your physical therapist feel that you are ready for discharge from physiotherapy services, you are, of course, welcome to transition from physiotherapy services/physiotherapy-pilates stream to regular pilates at the studio. You are always welcome to contact us for a re-assessment as well.
