About BodyGuide

Who are we?

 

BodyGuide was designed by Australian health professionals from a variety of backgrounds. Our advisory team is made up of Physiotherapy, Osteopathy, Myotherapy, Strength and Conditioning and Occupational Therapy.

 

BodyGuide is endorsed by the Australian Society of Lifestyle Medicine.

 

Our founder, Matthew Green, has 10 years clinical experience, working with people in chronic pain, both in person and via telehealth. The intent of our education pieces are not to simply provide scientific literature to customers - they are about presenting multiple concepts, both from scientific litearture and health professoinals clinical experience, into easily understood, digestible content that encourages body exploration. 

 

All content is designed for educational purposes, to encourage exploration of mindful movement for people in pain. BodyGuide does not provide a diagnosis nor is it a substitute for medical advice - as clearly stated in the customer’s onboarding experience.
