The journey to a better you

So that we can help you best, we need to know you inside out. We start with a really thorough initial assessment.
We Will Discuss and Find Out:

- Your medical and injury history
- Goal setting, and mapping the steps we’ll take together
- Movement screening
- Testing of your strength, flexibility, balance, and joint function, using proven techniques
- Now that we know you, we can work on a health and lifestyle program together to get you to your health goals.
- You have the option of continuing with Individual Consultations in-clinic or Telehealth, or you may choose to join
one of our Group-Based Exercise Programs
- We may recommend also recommend one of our targeted programs.
I have been going to Health in Balance for just over 3 years, I have never been one to do much exercise but since joining Health in Balance I feel physically and mentally better than ever. I have finally found a place where I feel comfortable, and cared for.
Susan, Caulfield North
Working with my exercise physiologist over the past 10 months has been a challenging but a rewarding experience. He has helped me gain greater insight into my chronic fatigue syndrome while instilling me with strategies to manage it. Heath in balance's environment has been one of support, encouragement and guidance which has aided in times where my chronic fatigue has exacerbated. They have been consistently positive and continue to provide me with much strength and optimism. My exercise physiologist is patient and understands my need to maintain my training which is vital to my recovery process. He has been truly committed to working with me and I look forward to continue to work with him while focusing on overcoming my current health/training restrictions.

It was with some reservation and anxiety that I agreed to attend Health in Balance to see an exercise physiologist. However these feelings disappeared fast as my exercise physiologist conducted my initial assessment. His professional and approachable manner put me at ease. Over the past 6 months, his encouragement and his firm yet non-judgmental approach has given me the confidence to work on my exercise program and make adjustments to my eating habits. He works with my strengths and with his constructive positive feedback he pushes me to want to do better I wouldn’t hesitant to recommend Health in Balance.
Jenni A - East St KIlda
Have been plagued by back problems over many years and more recently by a recurrence of neck soreness and swollen and painful knees. Health in Balance has provided a comprehensive program to address all these issues compared to the ‘piecemeal’ interventions that I have received in the past. The exercises have been carefully selected and graded to meet my current level of fitness while gradually extending my strength. I am enjoying a noticeably increased range of movement throughout my body and feel confident to attempt exercises that I previously regarded as beyond my ability.

I have been referring my patients to Health In Balance since first meeting with Edouard and Daniel. I refer patients with diabetes, osteoarthritis, obesity, patients at risk of falls as well as any other chronic medical condition that will benefit from improved strength, balance and fitness. It is not uncommon for my patients to opt to continue with their program at Health in Balance after their Medicare funded sessions have run out; this in itself is a great testament to the care and professionalism of the team. I have always received excellent feedback from patients about the personalised services that the team at Health in Balance provides. For many elderly patients it is a reintroduction to exercise that they were fearful of making on their own. It is a pleasure to work in partnership.
Dr Sharon Monagle, Beaumaris
After my fall where I sustained a serious injury to my elbow requiring surgery and finding I had osteoporosis I consulted with Health in Balance to help my rehabilitation. I was impressed at their thorough approach taking into account my surgical and medical issues to plan an appropriate regime of sessions. It has always been varied interesting and has helped restore function and allow me to return to pre injury function as well as improving core stability and posture. I would recommend them to anyone with any medical or post surgical issues requiring a coordinated comprehensive approach that is not only beneficial but enjoyable.
