COVID19 Vaccination Info Update
All of our practitioners and reception staff are vaccinated for COVID19
What do the current vaccination guidelines mean for your upcoming appointments?
Osteopathy with Alex:
Osteopathy is primary health care and vaccination passports wont be required when seeing Alex.
Myotherapy with Janine & Melinda:
The guidelines around vaccination passports and Myotherapy treatments is still quite blurry, although we are doing our best to find the most current info for you, at this stage vaccinations are not required for Myo, although strongly preferred by your practitioners. Please call us to discuss.
Kinesiology with Cate:
Double vaccination passports are required for face to face sessions with Cate, however if you are yet to receive your first &/or second dose, Cate is available for online zoom or phone-call Kinesiology sessions.
If your vaccination history doesn't match the above, or if you have any concerns or queries with the above, please don't hesitate to reach out to us prior to booking an appointment.
As you may be aware, the info is constantly changing and we are doing our very best to stay on top of the most current guidelines that allow our business to be open.
As you can imagine, these ongoing lockdowns have placed a huge financial burden and mental strain on our small business and our practitioners and staff, so we truly hope our clients will appreciate and respect how important it is that we abide by the government regulations and guidelines to avoid further COVID spread and additional potential lockdowns.
We understand that vaccinations can be a sensitive topic, we are not able to debate the merits of health guidelines or vaccine mandates. We are a small business working hard to get our doors open, and hopefully stay open for good.
Remember, its cool to be kind. xx
In saying all the above,
WE CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU ALL SOON AND TALK ABOUT COOL STUFF OTHER THAN COVID!! XX
We send our tremendous thanks and gratitude for your support during the ongoing COVID rollercoaster.
We can not wait to see you all again for routine care very soon.

HELPING YOU FEEL, MOVE AND FUNCTION LIKE THE BEST VERSION OF YOURSELF
Myotherapists is the treatment and rehab of musculoskeletal conditions. Myotherapists use a wide range of evidence-based treatment approaches and skill-sets in addition to manual therapy including massage, dry needling and functional release cupping
Osteopaths are musculo-skeletal experts that use gentle techniques within the treatment, focusing on the free motion and alignment of the body framework and utilizing the important link between the structure of the body and its function.
Remedial Massage Therapy aims to balance, lengthen, and reduce tension of muscles and tendons, which restores the connective tissue, increases blood flow and helps heal injuries.
The process of dry needling involves an acupuncture needle being gently inserted into the trigger point within the muscle to relax or release it. The practice of dry needling is typically used to treat the muscular dysfunction and injuries, with the aim of permanently reducing the associated pain and discomfort and restoring the imbalances caused by the muscle feeling tight and contracted.
Massage, Myotherapy and Osteopathy treatments performed during pregnancy can help reduce and relieve muscle aches and joint pains from your rapidly changing body and biomechanics.
Specialised pregnancy mattress, which lies on top of the treatment table allows pregnant women to comfortably lie on their belly/front with no discomfort for mum or bubs. This enables the therapist to effectively massage sore necks, shoulders and backs. Pregnant mums finally get to enjoy the experience lying face down. ….Ahhhh
FUNCTIONAL RELEASE CUPPING
Using traditional cupping methods combined with modern training and functional movements to assist with stretching and movement of fascia to restore movement and funtion within the muscle chain.
Osteopathy can help assist with some concerns you may be facing with your bubs
Common conditions presented to the clinic that our osteopaths are able to treat are
-Head formation abnormalities
Our treatment is subtle, gentle and non-invasive.
Kinesiology works on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels. Our body systems are all connected, including our physical body to our spiritual bodies. We are a beautifully crafted, finely orchestrated symphony, that sometimes goes out of tune!
There is what we see, our physical bodies, and what we don’t see, our energetic bodies, and they all work in beautiful balance with each other, for optimal health, and wellness. Sometimes, through stress, trauma, life experiences, genes, thought patterns, or injury, our levels of being go out of balance. Kinesiology finds ways to counteract that imbalance for a calmer, more in tune, more grounded self.
Kinesiology utilises Traditional Chinese Medicine philosophies by working with the acupuncture system, the many related muscles, and the five elements. We use energetic medicine such as sound therapy, aromatherapy, colour, flower essences, and chakra balancing. We assess nutrition, hormones, vitamins, and minerals, to gather information about what may need balancing. There are so many ways to work on our bodies, and because our bodies are so sensitive, sometimes we just need a slight shift to make a great change.
Helping you feel, move and function like the best version of yourself

I visited Body Health Co and had cupping done for the first time. The treatments have relieved the pain, and given me better range of mobility in my neck.
