Services at PhysiofitPhysiofit was established in October 2005 when Lisa Banfield and Marilyn Jordan commenced practice in High Street, Launceston, in response to growing demand for more specialised physiotherapy services in the Launceston area. The unique and welcoming environment created by Lisa, Marilyn, and their staff resulted in our expansion into a building of our own at 305 Wellington St. A large and bright gymnasium was built to accommodate our services.
Physiofit has six fully-qualified physiotherapists who are trained to deliver a range of general services, including treatment of sports injuries, muscle & ligament sprains, low back pain, neck pain, headaches, and gait assessments. We also offer more specialised services for the treatment of women’s health issues including incontinence and pregnancy related issues, and chronic medical conditions such as osteoporosis, diabetes, and arthritis. We offer hospital visits for post natal women, gynaecological and urological surgery.
Our mutlidisciplinary team includes remedial massage therapists who are able to provide a range of services, including sports, deep tissue, lymphoedema, and relaxation massages. We also offer personalised, one on one exercise sessions with experienced personal trainers, which are available at competitive rates, and may be claimable against your private health insurance.
Exercise classes catering for all shapes, sizes, ages, and abilities run throughout the day between Monday and Friday. They offer a diverse range of approaches to fitness and rehabilitation, and include hydrotherapy, water aerobics, pilates (including beginners pilates and antenatal pilates), core strength, flexibility, weight training, chair-based resistance exercises for the beginners and a falls prevention class. Pack your smile and bad jokes in with your towel and drink bottle, because our classes aren’t loud and intimidating like the ones at your gym: we create a supportive and motivating atmosphere where everyone can have a good time and feel comfortable working at their own level.
