At Viva, we remain committed to helping Victorians stay safe by providing a combination of face-to-face and online services. We’re here to support you both at the clinic or in-person depending on your situation.

With Victorian restrictions now easing, we are happy to be able to offer face-to-face physiotherapy for all consultations- including routine care. With a fully-vaccinated team and a high standard of hygiene and COVID-safe procedures, you’ll feel secure as you return to our clinic. If you prefer to continue with at-home treatment, we continue to offer our online consultations  as an effective, contact-free option. Our studio classes are currently running to the regular timetable of both in-person and online sessions.

We have also introduced some new consultation and class formats. You can read about what’s available and how to book below, or get straight into booking an appointment or a class online.


Booking a Consultation

In-Person Consults

If you need face to face treatment we are here to support you. As we have throughout the whole pandemic, we are working to maintain the highest level of hygiene to safeguard you, including sanitising all surfaces and of course, mandatory masks. You can book a face to face consultation here

Online Consults and Rebates

Did you know that Telehealth Rebates (online consults) are approved for Private Health, Worksafe and TAC Appointments? Simply keep your receipt and lodge your claim online. You can book your online consults via our booking engine or by calling reception.

We can meet you online for all of your usual consultations plus a few new consult types developed especially for those who are working from home. You’ll be surprised at just how effective we can be through the online portal, using household items and contortions of your own body to treat your pain and help you set yourself up to thrive at home.

When you book the appointment you’ll receive an automated confirmation email with the link to join the session. Here’s how you can book:

The Movement Studio – Online

Our regular classes including Clinical Movement, Stay Fit in Pregnancy, Viva Strong and Runner’s Strength are running according to a hybrid timetable of both online and in-person sessions.  View the timetable and book here

Please note, you will need to book an assessment appointment before coming to a Clinical Movement or Stay Fit in Pregnancy class. This is so that we can create a bespoke program for you to minimise risk and maximise results. Book the Clinical Assessment or Pregnancy Assessment online.
