Georgie is a Sports Therapist with over a decade of experience. She graduated from St Mary’s University with a degree in Sports Rehabilitation in 2008. Since then she has gained a wealth of knowledge and skills working with a variety of sports teams, clinics, and gyms. After seeing how much Pilates played a role in the rehabilitation of injuries, she decided to train with the Pilates Foundation as a Matwork teacher in 2010. She has experience teaching small matwork classes, from beginners through to advanced, as well as specific rehab groups for example; lower back pain, shoulder pain, prenatal and postnatal.
Following her training in Pilates Apparatus in 2012, Georgie worked for the Harlequins rugby team for two seasons, using the reformer with players to strengthen and mobilise. She practised alongside the physiotherapists to help accelerate the players’ return to play following injury.
Over the years, the Pilates training has complemented her skills as a therapist. She has great success in helping individuals rehabilitate from injury and get back to their sport/hobby. This is achieved through a combination of strengthening exercise programs, manual therapy and of course Pilates!
Having previously taught fitness classes to adults and children, in 2020 when lockdown hit Tanya turned to Pilates to keep fit at home and loved it! Taking advice from her physio colleagues she decided to train to teach with APPI (the Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute) as this method would provide a clinical form of Pilates which would be beneficial for many patients.
Paramount in her decision to train was the proven results which Tanya saw for herself. Having sustained a prolapsed cervical disc which left her with muscle weakness and spasms if she over trained, practising Pilates made a huge difference and demonstrated what excellent results can be achieved.
The APPI Method has taken the original 34 Joseph Pilates exercises and adapted them so they are suitable for patients working at a wide variety of levels, from people who are new to exercise to those who are accomplished athletes. Pilates builds strength, stability, flexibility and a strong core that will help prevent back pain. Everyday tasks become easier and it is an exercise form that can be practised at any age. Tanya has also completed Pilates for Healthy Bones training as she has a special interest in Osteoporosis, how Pilates can help prevent it and how patients with lower bone density can still exercise safely.
Tanya offers 1:1 Pilates sessions and small group classes.
Whilst studying for her Masters in Australia Jodie was able to work alongside some of Australia’s top Olympic Physiotherapists covering a number of disciplines. It was here she first saw the benefits of integrating Pilates with Physiotherapy. She made the decision to study with the Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute (APPI). Jodie regularly incorporates Pilates into her Physiotherapy treatment plans particularly when working with someone from a Women’s Health perspective. Currently Jodie isn’t offering Pilates as a stand-alone treatment, although she does offer the diagnostic ultrasound core scanning, which we refer to below.
Currently due to COVID-19 we are only offering 1:1 Pilates this allows for us to tailor a program to you. We also offer a Core Scanning Service using our Diagnostic Ultrasound Scanner which produces a live image of your core activation. From this assessment, you will understand more about your core and realise what activating it should feel like, giving you the confidence that you are doing it correctly. All of this gives you a chance to get to grips with the finer details of Pilates, so you are then ready to progress to group classes, when the world allows!
Areas Pilates can really help with include –
- Lower Back Pain
- Women’s Health
- Flexibility and Mobility

Thank you for fixing my back after 6 months of working from home on a wooden kitchen chair! I’ve gone from having never seen a Chiropractor before to now making it a regular appointment.
It is due to a number of practitioners, now at the Health Hub, that my recovery from a serious injury was the successful. I cannot praise Jodie and Tina enough for their knowledge, advice and support in 2018, which expedited my recovery giving me the opportunityto continue pursuing my sporting hobbies. I am so thankful they continue to deliver their skills from a new base, which houses the best professionals in the area. I have often joked with Sam that I need a sports top saying ‘This body has been rebuilt and regularly serviced by The Health Hub’.
Highly recommend – Sam and Tina at the Health Hub have helped me enormously recently with a back problem and I have been so pleased with the results. Always a friendly smile and professional service at their practice
I had a great sports/therapeutic massage with Tina Towler today. This was exceptional and I used Sam for back issues in the past. The Health Hub is exceptional in decor and organisation. It was a really good vibe it there today with loads on street parking available just outside. Great experience, thank you for today. Lovely place to go to.
I see Sam (chiropractor) regularly and he offers a bespoke, caring open minded service. Not only is he highly skilled and professional but he is friendly and knowledgeable without judgement or up selling. Highly recommend. Ive also had a fantastic sports therapy massage from Tina and hope to book in for another soon. Gemma
Thoroughly recommend this place, I’ve had two massages by Tanya. Will defs be coming back. Very good massages. Thank you for providing this service during lockdown.
State of the art new practice, with fantastic treatment rooms and highly skilled staff. Sam Pargeter treated my back and has made a huge difference. Highly recommended.
What a friendly place! Even with covid restrictions in place, you are made to feel welcome the moment you walk in the door. Tanya provides a thorough deep massage, having taken time to check on my needs and well-being. Would highly recommend and will be going back
The staff are all lovely, kind and helpful. Lachlan is an excellent osteopath and sorts out my tense muscles and clicking out hip every time. A medical appointment to look forward to! Highly recommended
