Niche Physio & Pilates

Niche Physio and Pilates is a Physiotherapy Clinic run by experienced Clinicians, Alexia Catenacci and Carly Macfarlane. Our objective is to create a safe and supportive environment where people feel as though they are treated like family.


Patients can walk through our door and feel like they are not just a number. The clinic is not your usual ‘one in one out’ physio clinic. We care about empowering individuals to live their best life in their best bodies. We are a boutique, bespoke clinic offering world class services next to none. Our vision is to help you build your best, healthy body free of recurring ongoing pain!

‘Niche’ physio clinic is in the heart of Mount Hawthorn. We offer a supportive, wellness environment for you to feel motivated and empowered to get better and fit in the minimum amount of time. The clinic provides a rehabilitative space that feels comfortable to be in, whilst still providing clinical and professional advice.

The clinic can help you with acute and chronic injury diagnosis and management, post-op surgical protocols, injuries at work with compensable claims and motor vehicle injuries. We offer a unique combination of Pilates, a well-known exercise therapy, with a Physiotherapist’s medical and injury background knowledge. Combining these two approaches ensures that you recover from your injuries and begin to move safely again.

Pilates is a well-known exercise therapy that assists people in moving well and safely. Load and resistance can be suited to you, the individual based on your mobility, injury, or fitness. Certain positions in the repertoire can mimic dynamic functional movements and sport specific tasks, helping you to get back to what you love to do or to simply improve your current function and strength.

As Physiotherapists, we are experts in the knowledge of anatomy, injury and rehabilitation that’s required to overcome pain and injury. Combining pilates and physiotherapy gives you, our client, confidence knowing that you can exercise safely over time and make the gains required to overcome pain, stiffness, or injury.
