Rehab room

The Rehab Room by Wellness Embodied Cairns is a space for performance and progression of your rehab exercises under the skilled guidance of our physiotherapists or exercise physiologist. We have specialised equipment, weights, pressure biofeedback and laser tracking for vestibular rehabilitation.


In healthcare we know that just because the pain has eased, the injured area may still not be back to full strength. Without optimal movement, strength and balance, your risk of recurring injury is greater. We want to get you back to the things you love, which is why we’ve developed our Survive, Revive & Thrive treatment planning process to individualise your treatment to you. We provide a range of evidence based exercise services to help get you back to full function.


Our ESSA accredited Cairns exercise physiologist designs exercise programmes to support patients with chronic conditions such as heart disease, diabetes or asthma, as well as those recovering from injuries or surgery. The first step is a comprehensive assessment using exercise tests, movement assessments and interview. Health fund rebates are available and NDIS, Medicare and DVA clients are all eligible for this service when you choose Wellness Embodied.


Injuries, poor posture and long term pain lead to poor movement patterns, balance and significant muscle imbalance. Wellness Embodied’s Physiotherapists, together with our exercise physiologist, know that rehabilitation of these issues is crucial for healing and prevention of future pain and issues. At the Rehab Room we combine equipment and expertise in small number (max 5) classes, lasting 55 minutes.


Our best value program. Attend for 5 consecutive weeks to perform and progress your individual physiotherapy program. Results guaranteed! Pay up front and claim for each individual session under your private health insurance at the end of your five weeks. Maximum group size- 4.


Perfect for those who can’t commit to a full five weeks, drop in sessions are available to kick start your physio rehab journey. A current exercise program prescribed by us must be in place and no new injuries will be advised on or assessed during the session. To check your suitability for drop in sessions, contact us.


Book a normal physiotherapy or exercise physiology appointment and specify to our therapists that you would like a Rehab Room session to gain the full benefits of 1;1 rehab exercise prescription and progression. These sessions can be claimed instantly under your Health Insurance Cover. They are free for eligible Cairns Workcover, CTP, DVA or NDIS clients.

Research Shows

Appropriate rehabilitation of injured areas lowers the rate of future injury recurrence. Muscle imbalances and movement dysfunctions are apparent in most long-term pain conditions. Conservative rehabilitation (ie. EXERCISE) can be just as useful as surgery in treatment of many conditions, including many rotator cuff tears, knee injuries and more.

Our Expert Advice

Physiotherapists, including our expert team at Wellness Embodied, are best placed for advising you on your specific exercise and rehabilitation needs (as well as injury prevention) due to our high-level knowledge of the entire musculoskeletal system. Humans are complex creatures. Pain can be a result of imbalance in many systems- muscle, joint, bone, ligament, tendon, nerve, fascia, dura, autonomic system and more. At Wellness Embodied Cairns, our physiotherapy team prides themselves on our whole-person approach to assess, treat and rehabilitate.

Trained Professionals

All physiotherapists at Wellness Embodied Cairns are trained in Movement Based Classification and Treatment (MBCT). This is a physiotherapist specific Clinical Pilates modality which involves an accurate physiotherapy assessment to determine the appropriate direction of movement to rehabilitate. Our physiotherapists then test several simple, controlled rehabilitation exercises, before retesting to see if there is a difference. This simple process gives you confidence in our approach as well as allowing us to constantly assess the benefits of our exercise regime.

We know that life gets in the way of exercise, which is why our Rehab Room offers 2 excellent options to optimise your Cairns physiotherapy results. These are only open to clients who have attended within the last 3 months and been deemed suitable for the program. When and if necessary our Cairns physiotherapists will consult with the Wellness Embodied team of Allied Health Professionals, which includes osteopaths, exercise physiologist, occupational therapists and a naturopath, to deliver a comprehensive assessment and treatment plan for your personal circumstances. Contact us for further details or to book an assessment.


Classes are suitable for most ages and all fitness levels. The emphasis is on health, wellness and being pain free. They are designed to engage and strengthen your mind, core muscles and body. Let us remove the barriers to your full recovery from pain.

OUR GUARANTEE TO YOU. If you attend 5 consecutive weeks of Rehab Room sessions and don’t have an improvement in pain, range of motion or strength, we’ll give you a free Physiotherapist led 1;1 exercise session.

Classes take place at 53 Sheridan Street. Attendance is by booking only: bookings are essential. For more information contact one of our friendly team on 07 4231 9777.
