Eliza Edkins

Eliza is passionate about health, providing you with the right tools and tips to achieve your goals.

She loves to educate people on their bodies and how they move and identify any areas of dysfunction now and possibly into the future (prevention is better than a cure). She has a holistic approach looking at the whole body and other factors that may contribute to your symptoms (for some people this may be hormonal factors and/or the nervous system).
She has a curious personality, so be prepared for lots of questions and some brainstorming!

Eliza has a special interest in women’s health from pre-conception, pregnancy and beyond. These sessions are tailored for you and may involve thorough assessment with questions and biomechanical assessment, internal pelvic floor examination, education and exercises.

Her further study in this area includes:

-Mentor program with The Physiotherapy clinic
-Introductory Women’s Health Physiotherapy Level 1
-Women’s Pelvic Health Physiotherapy Level 1
-Advanced POP and SUI with Tarryn Hallam
Eliza is also an Exercise Physiologist and a Pilates Instructor, teaching both Mat and equipment classes. You might find Eliza reading, listening to podcasts, hiking, camping or baking.
If you are looking for advice, exercises, a brainstorming session (or just need a book/podcast recommendation) or a journey towards motherhood or beyond, then you might be a good fit!
