Chiropractic

Chiropractic is the third largest health profession in the world after medicine and dentistry. It is an approach to health and wellbeing that centres around the body’s own natural ability to function and heal itself.

Central to all your bodily functions is your nervous system. Consisting of your brain, sense organs, spinal cord and the nerves that branch out to every part of your body, your nervous system is the most complex organ of your body.

Chiropractors work to restore proper nervous system functioning.

Naturopathy

Naturopathy is a distinct and complete system of health care. Six foundational principles underpin the practice of naturopathy: The healing power of nature (Vis Medicatrix Naturae), First do no harm, Find and treat the cause whenever possible, not only the symptoms (Tolle Causum), Treat the whole person, Education and Prevention. These six principles are kept in mind when a naturopath takes your case, develops a treatment plan and also offers maintenance for long term good health.

Naturopathy is both an art and a science. Naturopaths are prevention medicine specialists. Today naturopaths use scientific evidence as well as traditional evidence in practice.

Naturopathic case-taking often uncovers dis-ease long before it has become a diagnosable pathology. Naturopaths treat both acute and chronic conditions. Naturopathic care is well suited to anyone at any age. Naturopaths have many answers for common conditions. Naturopaths use various modalities in their practice. These may include: herbal medicine, nutritional medicine, homeopathy, dietary and lifestyle advice, massage therapy or other therapies.

Our naturopaths are all accredited with training minimum of an Advanced Diploma and many have Bachelor’s degrees and beyond. Naturopaths offer the public significant health support providing millions and millions of consultations with good outcomes across the nation each year. Naturopaths work alongside your GP or other health professional to offer you the best patient-centred care.

Natural Therapy

Natural Therapy/Medicine is a form of alternative medicine based on a belief in vitalism, which posits that a special energy called vital energy or vital force guides bodily processes such as metabolism, reproduction, growth, and adaptation.

Naturopathic philosophy favours a holistic approach, and, like conventional medicine seeks to find the least invasive measures necessary for symptom improvement or resolution, thus encouraging minimal use of surgery and unnecessary drugs.

We use natural medicines and supplements to aid the body in healing itself more effectively.

Remedial Massage Therapy

Remedial massage holistically treats the body. The massage therapist endeavours to identify the original biomechanical dysfunction, thus healing the cause of the disorder, as well as the symptoms.

Remedial massage uses several specialised techniques to locate and repair damage to muscles, tendons and joints. Massage therapy supports and speeds up the body’s own repair mechanisms.

Dry Needling

Dry needling is the insertion of fine needles (acupuncture needles) into trigger and tender points for the purpose of relieving pain and spasm. It is not acupuncture in the Traditional Chinese sense as it uses western theories and evidence to guide its administration. Dry needling is performed at a palpated trigger point or tender point. Current research supports the procedure as deactivating these neurologically active points.

It is used for muscular and soft tissue pain; and is effective in treating tendinopathy type conditions, deep trigger points and, patients intolerant to deep soft tissue therapy, and is also successful in relaxing muscles. Tennis elbow, shoulder tendinitis, chronic neck pain and low back pain are common complaints that have excellent results with dry needling.
