GLOW Physio Gold Coast
Building Stronger Bodies for Birthing & Beyond.
I understand how frustrating it can be when your body just doesn’t feel like it used to.
I know how much pain can get in the way of you enjoying your life and your family, but how it can often feel impossible to make time to look after yourself.
I understand how daunting it can seem to have a birth or recovery ahead of you when you are feeling weak and in pain.
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.
I harp on about this a lot! Especially to anyone I treat for pain aggravated by desk/computer work! #sorrynotsorry Microbreaks are tiny little breaks you take regularly throughout the day to mix up your position/posture. They can be very short (even 30seconds can be...
I clearly remember a point in my first pregnancy when I looked down at my growing belly and had a sudden (and quite shocking) realisation that I was only going to get bigger and that this baby had to come out somehow! I know this sounds crazy, especially for a woman...
This is a common question I get asked by the clients I see for group exercise or Physio during pregnancy. It seems many think they need to wait to see a physio until 6 weeks after birth or when they get the ‘all clear’ from their doctor (I’ll save my thoughts on the...
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 we will ensure your doctor receives regular updates on your treatment with us.

What Do I Need To Provide for Mobile Treatments?
Nothing! We bring everything with us – a state of the art portable massage table, a choice of cream or oil and towels. We just need a small space to set up (about 2m x 2m) and we will take care of the rest!
Do I Need to Provide Parking for Mobile Treatments?
We bring all of our equipment with us for your convenience, so we 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!

Rebates will apply to all sessions if you have private health extras cover. We carry a mobile Hicaps machine with us to help you claim your private health rebate on the spot. Some health funds will require us to plug the machine into your analogue phone line (just a free phone call). If you are unable to claim your private health rebate on the spot, we will provide you with a receipt and you can claim your rebate by post, in person or online (many funds have smartphone apps now to make claiming easier!).
Will I Be Charged for a Cancellation?
We 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:
