Hi, I’m Libby! I’m a physiotherapist who LOVES helping women feel their best.
I love working with women of all ages, but I particularly enjoy helping women during and after pregnancy to feel strong, capable and pain free. I am a mum of three boys and know first-hand how physical this mum gig can be and how important it is to be on top of our game. I also understand how hard it can be for women to make the time to look after themselves – this is where I come in! I want to be on your team; to understand your goals and to empower you to get the results you want.
To make it as easy as possible for you to access great physio, GLOW offers both clinic appointments and home visits.
Clinic appointments are available from GLOW’s private Elanora clinic, and Home Visits can be arranged across much of the Gold Coast and a bit of Northern NSW (check out FAQ for a full list of suburbs serviced).
We have extensive experience in treating a range of general, sports and women’s health conditions and are committed to providing a high quality
Group exercise classes run by our experienced physiotherapist are suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels.
Pregnancy & Post Natal
Pregnancy and new motherhood is both exciting and EXHAUSTING! Our highly experienced physiotherapist can help you with aches, pains and recovery.
GLOW’s treatment packages have been designed to help you get clear on your goals, stay accountable and get the most out of your sessions.
The Glow Difference
We take the time to listen and understand your goals fully so that we can support you in getting the results you want.
Our consultations are 60 minutes long (twice as long as standard), which gives us the time we need to thoroughly assess, diagnose and treat you, and also to develop a plan together so that you feel empowered to keep moving forward.
We offer a child-friendly environment as well as a mobile/home service to make scheduling appointments easier.
We provide online, customised exercise plans so that you never forget your exercises
We offer ongoing access to your physio and support via email for any of those questions that pop up outside of sessions.
How do you know if you’re doing your pelvic floor exercises (aka kegels) properly? There are many wild and wonderful things women do when they think they’re contracting their pelvic floor! You might think this isn’t an issue for you because you haven’t got...
Starting a new exercise habit can be so tough. I mean, you KNOW it’s good for you. you WANT to be that person. You might have even gone out and bought new workout gear to get you motivated! But then it doesn’t happen… Or you start off well, but it just doesn’t last....
Breathing is a bit of a ‘buzz’ topic at the moment, don’t you think? But is there is a right way to breathe and wrong way? Are we ‘supposed’ to breathe in and out through our nose or mouth? Into our belly? What about alternate nostrils; are we supposed to be doing...
Do I Need a Doctors Referral to see a Physio?
No, you do not need a doctor’s referral to see a physiotherapist, unless you are seeking treatment under workers compensation, third party insurance (i.e car accident), or under Medicare’s Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) program. Either way, if your doctor has referred you for treatment, please bring with you any relevant test results and I will ensure your doctor receives regular updates on your treatment with me.
What is your service area for Home Visits?
GLOW Physio offers home visits across the southern Gold Coast and some of northern NSW.
Please get in touch if you would like to request a home visit.
What Do I Need To Provide for Mobile Treatments?
Nothing! I bring everything with me – a state of the art portable massage table, cream / oil, towels, dry needles & even a real time ultrasound machine if needed! I just need a small space to set up (about 2m x 2m) and I will take care of the rest!
Do I Need to Provide Parking for Mobile Treatments?
I bring all of my equipment with me for your convenience, so I will require parking within a reasonable distance from your home (i.e. <50m). We can discuss details prior to your first consultation.
What Should I Wear?
Generally comfortable clothing you can move easily in, however it depends on what we are treating. The benefit of us treating you in your home is that you can always change if necessary!
How Long Will My Appointment Take?
- Initial physio – 60mins
- Follow up physio – 45mins
How Do I Pay for My Appointment?
Payment is taken on the day of treatment. I accept cash, eftpos, mastercard and visa (credit and debit). I also carry a HICAPS machine to assist with processing of your private health rebate.
How Do I Claim Through My Health Fund?
Rebates will apply to all sessions if you have private health extras cover. I carry a mobile Hicaps machine with me, which works for some, but not all health funds. If you are unable to claim your private health rebate on the spot, I will provide you with a receipt and you can claim your rebate online (most funds have smartphone apps now to make claiming easier!).
Will I Be Charged for a Cancellation?
I understand that life can be unpredictable, so if reasonable notice is provided a fee will not be charged. In other circumstances, the following fees apply:
For cancellation of individual appointments with <12 hours notice, cancellation fees do apply due to the increased time we allocate to each booking to allow for our extended sessions +/- travel:
- Cancellations with <12 hours notice 50% fee
- Cancellations with <6 hours notice 100% fee
