MASSAGE AND BODYWORK
The main difference between Massage and Bodywork is that Massage is intended as a series of techniques that more specifically help with relaxation and Bodywork as a series of techniques aimed at restoring health and assist with healing from disharmonies and/or injuries. Patients can either choose according to their preference or seek my recommendations with deciding what style would suit their current needs best from the following Massage and Bodywork techniques:
- Deep Tissue
- Oriental/Chinese (An Mo Tui Na)
- Lymphatic Drainage
- Myofascial Release
- Foot Reflexology
I offer almost twenty years of continued clinical practice experience and training in a variety of Massage and Bodywork styles to assist with a very vast array of different issues, whether they be predominantly stemming from the body, mind or spirit...or anywhere in between. With a background in Traditional Chinese Medicine I am also able to approach presenting issues at a more systemic level when appropriate. If required, treatment may involve a combination of complementing therapies and solutions, including Cupping Therapy, Herbal Medicine, Excercise Therapy and Dietary Therapy/Nutrition. I am also very happy to collaborate with other practitioners and professionals to help you achieve your health goals.
Initial consultations generally require an hour and a half and involve minimal paperwork, gathering information and relevant history, an assessment and diagnosis, a discussion and agreement about the recommended treatment plan, as well as an initial treatment for a total cost of $115. Follow ups generally consist of one hour or one and a half hour sessions, mostly spent in treatment, respectively costing $85 and $115.
I am also a long standing accredited member of the Australian Traditional Medicine Society (ATMS Membership 17349) and a registered provider with THESE Private Health Funds. I offer a HICAPS terminal facility at the clinic and, if you're eligible for cover by your Health Fund, you'll be able to process the claim on the spot and only pay the gap by your preferred payment method.
