Our experience at Ohana Physiotherapy with our 11-month-old was fantastic! The staff was incredibly knowledgeable and attentive to our baby's needs. They created a warm and welcoming environment that made our little one feel comfortable throughout the sessions. The physiotherapists were gentle yet effective in their approach, providing tailored exercises and techniques to support our baby's development. We noticed significant improvements in our baby's mobility and strength thanks to their expertise. We highly recommend Ohana for parents looking for exceptional care for their little ones.

Home visit for my 18 month old with Andrea was amazing! Everything she brought along was age appropriate, Andrea was very knowledgeable, and very gentle with my son when testing his mobility. Couldn’t highly recommend this service enough!

I used to think we had a very good physiotherapist, until we met Andrea and Soraya! They are the best. My little girl’s sessions are always fun but scientifically based! I always look forward to their updates as our little girl has her sessions while in kindy. She has massively improved and I am never going to look for any other physio. We are happily stuck with Ohana forever! They live up to their name because they treat everyone as a family. I look forward to your continuous success. All the best for Ohana team!

Andrea responded to us on really short notice which we were very grateful for. She was amazing with my daughter and gave me and my wife the advice we needed so that we could relax. we will defiantly recommend her to our friends and family and we will see her if there are ever any more problems (we hope not though) .
