Our Telehealth Exercise Physiology service provides targeted exercise therapy to you at home, work, or wherever you are. At Living Energy Pilates and Exercise Physiology, we offer high-quality Telehealth services for customers in remote or regional locations who are unwilling or unable to travel.
What is telehealth?
Telehealth is the use of digital information and communication technologies, such as computers and mobile devices, to access health care and exercise services remotely and manage your health. It provides you with the ability to still receive specialist health care without the need to travel.
Why choose Telehealth?
Over that last few years there has been a revolution in health care happening with the emergence of Telehealth. It used to be that Telehealth was mainly used in rural and remote areas where healthcare professional weren’t available for face to face appointments. With the advent of COVID, improved video technology, and the introduction of rebates for telehealth, accessing healthcare via Telehealth is now common place.
Telehealth has some significant advantages in eliminating travel time, being able to see your practitioner while at home or work. In addition Telehealth allows you to choose a practitioner based on their ability to deliver the best service to you, rather than just choosing a practitioner based on location.
Choose Living Energy Exercise Physiology and you will receive worlds best practice care from practitioners who are driven to deliver innovative patient-centred care. All you need is a laptop or mobile phone with a reasonable internet connection to get started.
