Physiotherapy is a form of manual – or “hands on” – therapy used to aid rapid rehabilitation from physical injury and assist post-operative recovery.
It can also be used to maintain the body at its optimum state, with the aim of enhancing performance in sport, speeding up recovery time and preventing re-injury. As such, Pro-Fit regularly works with a number of local professional and amateur athletes.
One of physiotherapy’s lesser known benefits is that it can help eliminate headaches, as well as neck and back pain.

Massage therapy is the manipulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue to enhance function, aid in the healing process decrease muscle reflex activity and to promote relaxation and well-being.
Remedial Massage is a treatment modality that manipulates the soft tissues of the body including movement for a specific therapeutic effect, rather than a general therapeutic effect. It uses relevant techniques, lubricants and movements according to the client’s needs and response. This leads to the healing process, which begins at the cellular level aiding soft tissues in repairing, restoring functional integrity and adapting back to health.
Remedial massage is particularly popular among sportsmen and women as it can be used to treat a specific injury or be used to maintain the body at its optimum state.
But remedial massage isn’t only for athletes. It’s for everyone. Pregnant women in particular can benefit from remedial massage, as can those who suffer from headaches.
Pro-Fit Physio & Allied Health Centre has a highly qualified and experienced remedial masseur on staff to help you feel fabulous fast.
A dietician is essentially an expert on diet and nutrition. Dieticians apply the art and science of human nutrition to help people understand the relationship between food and health and make dietary choices to attain and maintain health, and to prevent and treat illness and disease.
At Pro-Fit Physio & Allied Health Centre we are pleased to offer the services of a highly qualified and experienced dietician, who can advise you on what to eat in order to lead a healthy lifestyle or achieve a specific health-related goal.
Dietetic services are particularly popular among those who are overweight or battling obesity, but dieticians can also help with a variety of nutrition-related diseases such as diabetes, hyperlipidaemia and celiac disease.
Whatever your condition, nutritional needs or desired outcome, our dietitian will tailor a plan just for you.
