...I HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS to help you and I invite you to work with me. 


At Instil Physio, I excel at rehabilitating all types of injuries, acute and chronic. With my understanding of the metabolic, nervous and musculoskeletal systems I can support recovery of your acute injuries and help you resolve the long-standing pain problems known as "chronic injuries" or "chronic pain".



Assessment and treatment to optimize your movement, strength and health. Designed for athletes to recover from their training and performance before developing an injury that takes them away from their sport, and can also be applied to anyone who wants to keep participating in their life and optimizing their health. The objective is to keep you performing in your sport and life and to minimize time lost due to pain or injury, for athletes, and all individuals. 

You don't need to be injured to come and work with me!



A field of sport science that is dedicated to the treatment and prevention of sports specific injuries relating to female athletes (spanning from youth through to postpartum and into menopause). 

She Moves

SHE MOVES: The Foundation for Empowered Fitness and Sport Performance

Designed for individuals and sports teams, She Moves is a foundational movement course created for female athletes. Now, women, girls and coaches can access this revolutionary information that will help female athletes understand HOW to move their bodies, and prevent injuries so they can become strong, empowered and resilient.


With this information and knowledge, female athletes can reach their individual goals and stay active for life. 




At Instil Physio, I use physiotherapy and education to empower and support female athletes in achieving their health and sport performance goals. By combining sports medicine, pelvic health, neurofunctional acupuncture, and female athlete health, I provide a foundation for the comprehensive care of every athlete that I work with. 


Females have unique needs and physiology, which must be understood and incorporated into their health, rehab and training. Puberty, pregnancy, postpartum peri-menopause, and menopause are experiences that are unique to women and have an effect on health, injuries, training and performance. With the right support and education, women can thrive throughout their lifetime participating in fitness and sport. 


My ultimate goal is to advance females in sport and create lifelong athletic participation. I strive for excellence in my practice and can provide you with the tools you need to reach your health and sport performance goals, at any age or stage of life. 

Mission:  Supporting, Empowering and Inspiring females in lifelong fitness and sport participation

Vision:  Empower | Inspire | Educate

  • I use ‘female’ to describe the physiology that is unique to an individual who has been assigned female at birth (AFAB). However you choose to identify,  we support you. 

“Testimonials work great. Showing your reviews in quote marks has a powerful effect on customers and makes them more likely to trust you.”

“Because of Micaela’s help and efforts, the injuries started to become more manageable and we were able to do the impossible and get the whole team back in time to be ready for playoffs – which everyone knows, we won! .” Read more
