About

CharissaFermelis

Hey there – I’m Charissa! I am a physiotherapist and Pilates practitioner based in Melbourne, Australia, with particular expertise in dance injury prevention and rehabilitation, technique integration and performance medicine for dancers or all abilities and backgrounds; from junior to recreational to elite. More recently I have been contracted with international dance companies and touring artists, including Ballet Preljocaj’s “Snow White”, Cher’s “Here we go again” tour and Shania Twain’s “Now” tour.

My own background in elite dance and high-level performance allows me to understand the motivation that drives a dancer. I know the stresses dancers place on their bodies and I have first-hand experience in the types of injuries they sustain. I offer a caring approach to dance injury management, applying modern sports medicine principles in a dance specific environment.

I pride myself on being able to intertwine scientific-based clinical medicine with a holistic and grounded approach to wellbeing.
