Remedial massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. We also offer relaxation massages and hot stone massage therapy.
Osteopaths work to relieve your pain by focusing on how you function as a whole body unit. We aim to look at the real cause of the issue and not just at the immediate symptoms. This is one reason why it is so effective at resolving long-term/chronic aches and reoccurring pains, as well as acute injuries.
Treatment includes hands-on techniques to reduce pain, a care plan that may include rehabilitative exercises and dietary advice
Naturopathy is a form of natural medicine that actively encourages the body to repair itself, by finding and treating the root cause of disease.
Each treatment is individualised to the person, whilst following the premise -
"Prevention is better then cure".
Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care. It is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness. Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy.
Frequently Asked Questions

You don't need a referral from a GP unless you wish to consult an Osteopath under a Medicare GP management plan or through the Veterans Affairs Scheme.
What can I expect on my first appointment?
At the first visit, we take a thorough, relevant medical history, assess your problem and provide you with a working diagnosis and treatment.
How many appointments will I need?
The number of consultations you require will depend factors such as how long you have had a problem, your health, your age and your occupation.
What should I wear?
Please bring a pair of shorts or leggings to ensure the Osteopath can assess your posture better and allow for easier movement. Jeans and restrictive clothing may impact the treatment.
Do I need to bring anything?
