Move Better, feel Better

  • Owner Michelle Perkins established Physio Plus Pilates Noosa in 2005 as a way to combine hands-on Physiotherapy with Pilates exercise techniques. Since then, she has built a professional team around her who are passionate about providing the best care to all clients through the power of targeted exercise.

By combining Physiotherapy knowledge with specialised exercise programmes, our team aim to teach clients strategies to manage sport injuries or musculoskeletal conditions, so they don’t have to rely on short-term remedies. We’re dedicated to helping our clients enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle.

At Physio Plus Pilates Noosa, we offer:

  • Physiotherapy treatments,
  • Pre-Pilates Physio Assessments
  • Remedial Massage Therapy and Bodywork
  • Private Physio exercise sessions,

There are also a number of different yoga classes in this studio, so you will be sure to find the right exercise for your needs.

We believe all forms of exercise is therapy, and variety provides the best results. See our timetable to find the right class for you.

Located in Noosaville, our premises are comfortable, light, airy and fitted with Pilates equipment including Reformers, Cadillac and Wunda Chairs. Our studio has a fun and friendly atmosphere that you’ll look forward to coming back to.
