Michelle is a Certified STOTT Pilates instructor and Physiotherapist from Perth, Western Australia.
Michelle was introduced to the benefits of Clinical Pilates 8 years ago when she started working as a Physiotherapist. She saw the potential in fusing her traditional rehabilitation exercise prescription principles with Pilates techniques. Following this, she found the blend of the two enhanced her client’s outcomes, shortened recovery times and aided in future injury prevention.
Since then, Michelle has spent the last 7 years learning and perfecting her repertoire of movement rehabilitation skills through the STOTT Pilates Method, the Franklin Method of Imagery, Yamuna Body Rolling techniques and concepts developed by Tom Meyers and his Anatomy Trains work.
Along with her active rehabilitation in the Pilates studio Michelle has qualified in post graduate training in Acupuncture and Dry Needling techniques, Myofascial Cupping, Gua sha, Mulligan’s mobilizations with movement, K-taping along with Spinal and Peripheral joint Mobilizations.
Michelle has an extensive range of clientele from weekend warriors participating in amateur sports with recreational injuries to patients suffering from chronic pain and degenerative conditions including: fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, osteoarthritis, endometriosis and other non-specified chronic pain conditions.
Michelle has a very hands on approach to her Pilates classes due to her expert knowledge in anatomy and Myofascial connectivity and strongly believes in the power of mindfulness and the mind-body approach to holistic recovery.
