Online Physio Pilates Sessions
You can work on your rehabilitation & fitness goals from anywhere
with our online Pilates sessions using Zoom.
Elite Spinal Physiotherapy and Pilates are industry leaders in Physio group exercise and clinical Pilates. Our experienced Physiotherapists will be able to help you reach your goals no matter what level you are at. Our small group sessions (max 4), allows us to deliver the perfect environment and conditions to achieve your goals. If you’re looking for that 1:1 attention, we also offer private sessions. All our staff are trained in the Polestar method which is the most comprehensive training course available in Australia. Our classes are effective, tailored, and most importantly fun. All private sessions are eligible for health fund rebates.

Restoring health is much more than removing disease.
Who am I and why do I do this?
Melissa Golan is the director of the Pinc Program at Elite Spinal. She is a Physiotherapist who has undertaken postgraduate training in the area of breast cancer rehabilitation and strength conditioning. Melissa also has personal experience with recovering from cancer prevention surgery.
I am a BRCA2+ gene mutation carrier and have had two surgeries related to this diagnosis. While my surgeries have been preventative, I understand the fear that can come with a diagnosis (or waiting for a diagnosis), as well as the pain and limitations that come during surgical recovery. I know first hand how beneficial physiotherapy and exercise (especially Pilates!) can be to patients with cancer and, given my personal medical history, I both empathise with my patients and can help guide them along the road to post-operative and post-treatment recovery.
I am inspired to help people with a current or past diagnosis of cancer regain their physical strength, stamina and incorporate exercise into their lifestyle.
What to Expect
- Each patient is assessed individually for physical impairments and the effect of their treatment in a one on one session with Melissa in one of our private treatment rooms
- Telehealth is available if a patient is unable to get to the clinic for any reason
- A rehabilitation program is then created to suit the particular stage of recovery.
- Sessions can include a combination of services such as manual physiotherapy, graduated resistance training, individualised clinical pilates, fatigue management and exercise prescription
