SHE MOVES: The Foundation for Empowered Fitness and Sport Performance

Designed for individuals and sports teams, She Moves is the first-ever 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 correctly, 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 we excel at rehabilitating all types of injuries, acute and chronic. With our understanding of the metabolic, nervous and musculoskeletal systems we 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. 



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




At Instil Physio, we offer physiotherapy and education tailored to the female athlete and we call this Female Sports Medicine.  To us, an athlete is anyone who uses their body for movement or sport. So yes, that’s you! Females have unique needs and physiology, which must be understood and incorporated into their training and rehabilitation. We aim to teach female athletes of all ages and stages about their bodies and how to recover from injury, reducing the impact of these injuries. We also encourage performance care, which is a great way to minimize injury risk and optimize your movement for sport and life. We believe that by arming athletes with the tools and knowledge to understand and work with their bodies, that we can help them to reach their full potential, whatever that means to them. 


Our ultimate goal is to advance females in sport and create lifelong athletic participation. Knowing our work is only one piece of this, our role is to provide updated information, training and rehabilitation for female athletes so that they can reach their full athletic potential at any stage of their life. We strive for excellence in our practice and have created an environment to support and empower you in your health and sport performance goals. 

Mission:  Empowering females in their health and sport performance

through physiotherapy and education. 


Vision:  Accessible knowledge | Innovative approach | Empowered community

  • Yes, we do also work with male athletes from amateur to professional. 

  • We 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
