About Pelvic Floor Exercise Program
This program is run by our Women’s Health Physiotherapists Amy Tinetti and E-Lynn Tann, and has been specially designed to positively affect your whole body and especially your Pelvic Floor. This is done through the improvement of strength, mobility, posture, flexibility and movement control.
The program will work on strengthening your whole-body, using reformers, trapeze, light weights, stretches, and Clinical Pilates. Amy will ensure all exercises are pelvic floor-friendly and incorporate activation and relaxation as per your unique requirements.

To get started, you will undergo a one-hour private, whole-body assessment. During this session, Amy will assess your pelvic floor using real-time ultrasound, review your past and current medical conditions, as well as your whole-body movement, strength, coordination, and balance.
