COVID-19 UPDATE

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.

During the Circuit Breaker Lockdown, face to face physiotherapy consultations are limited to those who will deteriorate significantly without it. We strongly encourage online consultations wherever possible. Our studio classes are running online and in the studio, in a covid safe way.

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

Booking a Consultation

In-Person Consults

If you are post operative, have a referral from a GP or have a condition that would deteriorate significantly without face-to-face treatment, we are here to support you. 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

Did you know that all of our usual classes are streaming online?

As a gift to you during the circuit breaker lockdown, you can bring a friend for free for our Mat Pilates, Therapeutic Yoga and Outdoor Running session – just use the code FREEFRIEND.

 

Regular & Half Price Classes

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.
