Health Fund Rebates for Clinical Pilates
Health fund rebates may be applicable for individual Clinical Pilates sessions. Health funds which currently offer a rebate for Pilates include:
AHM (Australian Health Management)
Australian Teachers Federation Health
Your health fund may require that you have a referral from a Health professional such as a GP, physiotherapist, chiropractor, osteopath or orthopaedic surgeon.
If you plan to claim a rebate for your Clinical Pilates sessions at Breathe from your private health fund, please let us know when you book your sessions so that we can give you an appropriate receipt.
"I no longer walk around with Nurofen in my handbag."
"In February 2007 I suffered a severe herniation of my L5/S1 disc. After my injury, pain became every part of my day and I thought I would just have to learn to get used to it. By the end of each day I was in so much pain I could barely sit in my chair, and getting in the car after work was the worst moment of every day. I couldn’t even change the sheets on the bed; couldn’t even sit on the sofa to watch TV. I was really starting to get depressed about it.
Who would believe that in my first one-on-one session with Raph I would feel such improvement?
Now, after 2 months at Breathe, I no longer walk around with Nurofen in my handbag. I have a tennis ball instead (you’ll need to ask Raph about that one!!). I can bend over and pick things up without pain, I can sit at my desk for longer, and driving isn’t so bad anymore. I can do housework, which of course makes me more popular at home; I am not so stressed and sore by the end of the day. Even on a bad day at least now I have the techniques to be able to make myself feel better."
