About Us

Core Beliefs/Approach

At Mind Heart Body Centre we believe in addressing the causative factors contributing to your problem and not just the area of pain. Our common goal is YOU - working together as a team within our clinic, as well as your other treating health professionals, to achieve the best possible outcomes for you. We aim to improve the well-being of your mind, heart and body so you are more connected and grounded and are better equipped to face the challenges in your day-to-day life. In need of treatments in physiotherapy, Pilates and meditation in Sydney? Look no further than Mind Heart Body Centre in Artarmon.

We understand that with pain and discomfort there are often other factors such as nutrition, mental, emotional and social stress that enter into the equation when treating you. Any of these factors will influence the others and often by addressing one, will have a positive flow on effect to decrease the effect of others. Ultimately we aim to help you balance your mind, heart and body to achieve optimum health and happiness.
