Relieve pain. Increase mobility. Improve quality of life.

Find Us

We’ve been providing quality, personalised physiotherapy for people throughout Lake Macquarie and Newcastle for almost 30 years.

With three practice locations throughout the city in Belmont, Gateshead and Glendale, we have an experienced physio near you.

Whether you have an injury, you’ve just had surgery or you’re suffering from niggling or chronic pain, our highly trained, knowledgeable staff can help.

Massage Therapy

If you suffer from neck, shoulder, back or leg pain, we offer therapeutic massage techniques to help relieve tight muscles and stiff joints. Our experienced massage therapists also give practical advice and tips on maintaining good musculo-skeletal health.

Exercise Programs & Advice

We do an initial assessment to take your medical history, activity level and capacity. We design an exercise program based on you and your goals. Together, we’ll run through your program to check your technique is correct, so you can continue your program at home or in the gym. We review your progress every 6-12 weeks.

Core Strength

These physio-run exercise classes focus on strength and flexibility for good posture and life-long wellness. Including mat work and Pilates-style exercises, we have classes throughout the week at various locations. See times here. 

Manual Therapy

Our physiotherapists know when to get hands-on and manually manipulate joints and muscles. Mobilisation helps promote the healing process of the affected soft tissues.


Exercising in water provides buoyancy, support and a feeling of being weightless. You can move more freely as you build strength and flexibility. Hydrotherapy sessions are held at Valentine Pool.

Casting & Splints

Depending on the injury, we may need to stabilise or mobilise tissues or joints for them to heal effectively. We also specialise in waterproof casts, custom-made orthotics, taping & bracing.

Dry Needling

Dry needling is used to reduce pain and restore function through the release of myofascial trigger points in muscle.

Rehabilitation Programs

If you’ve suffered an injury or had a surgical procedure, we can design a rehabilitation program to get you back to full strength.
