Frequently Asked Questions

General

How does your treatment approach differ to other therapies / clinics?

We understand that every structure in the body is connected through fascia. Fascial therapy is a passive manipulation of the body’s deep fascia which aims to drain excess fluid and inflammation trapped within. By draining the fascia using this multi system approach – we are able to reduce pain, restore restriction and turn down protective reflexes that contribute to chronic pain states.

We also integrate corrective exercise into every treatment session. This helps to load the treated areas and create connections within your body.

Is your treatment painful?

Our hands on work is gentle and rarely painful. Occasionally, clients may feel drained or fatigued the following day as your body adjusts to the new changes. This can usually be avoided by drinking plenty of water and engaging in light movement. We’ll explain all of this in more detail when we see you.

What conditions do you treat?

Some of the most common conditions we treat include for pain, but are not limited to:

  • Adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder)
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Coccydynia
  • Degenerative disc pain
  • Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (associated pain)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches (migraine, tension, cluster)
  • Hip, knee, foot and ankle pain
  • Low back pain and sciatica
  • Muscle tears, aches and pains
  • Neck pain
  • Nerve pain / neuropathies
  • Osteoarthritis (all areas)
  • Parkinson’s disease (associated pain)
  • Pelvic floor pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Post-concussion syndrome
  • Shoulder, elbow, forearm and wrist / hand problems
  • Spondylolisthesis

  • Tendinitis / tendinopathies
  • Thoracic outlet syndrome
  • Thoracic, rib and chest pain
  • TMJ / jaw pain and associated disorders
  • Trochanteric bursitis
  • Vertigo
Will I get treated during my initial assessment?

You sure will. We start your initial assessment with examining your movement and scanning your body for fascial restriction. We find a lot of value in continually re-assessing throughout your treatment, getting you off the table to walk around, assessing tissue changes, and seeking out the root cause of your dysfunction through ongoing assessment.

Do I need a referral to see a physiotherapist?

No. Physiotherapists are first contact practitioners and don’t require any referral from your GP. Depending on your pain or condition we may get in contact with your GP (with your permission) to ensure you receive the appropriate care.

How long are your sessions?

While many clinics have you in and out in 15-20 min, our initial and follow up sessions are 60 minutes. This ensures  we are able to assess and treat your body holistically.

How many sessions will I need?

We aim to have you pain free and moving better in as fewer treatments as possible. We will provide you with as many resources as possible to help you self manage your condition. Your recovery will be determined on a session by session basis.

How do I choose which therapist is best for me?

Our therapists each bring unique attributes to the team. We pride ourselves on continued collaboration with each other. In short, get in touch with us and we’ll be happy to advise you who is best suited to treat your pain / restriction.

Can your team help me if I'm not in pain?

Most definitely. We suggest don’t wait for an injury to build up. Our modern habits of being glued to the computer chair, lack of sleep and poor dieting does not allow our body to work or maintain balance the way it’s supposed to. If you allocate the time to address muscle aches and pains before they build up to something more chronic, you’re going to feel better and be able to do the things you love for longer.

What are your opening hours?

Our opening hours are subject to change at anytime. Visit our bookings page for therapist availabilities.

What are your fees?

Our fees are subject to change at anytime. They can be found on our booking page. If you have private health, your level of cover will determine your rebates.

NDIS sessions follow a different pricing structure. Read about NDIS fees and funding.

Do you offer private health rebates / HICAPS?

We accepts HICAPS in clinic and at home. Your coverage will depend on your level of health insurance. Our session codes are below:

Clinic initial session – 500
Clinic single session – 506
Home visit initial session – 530
Home visit single session – 536

For home visits we accept HICAPS Mobile. Please note some smaller providers don’t offer this feature and you may be required to pay for your session in full and claim online. We’ll send you the required invoice if this is the case.

I have private health. Do I have to pay a gap?

Typically you will have to pay a gap to see us. Your coverage will depend on your health insurer. Please get in contact with your insurer for more information. Most providers have an online tool to calculate rebates.

Our session codes are as follows.

Clinic initial session – 500
Clinic single session – 506
Home visit initial session – 530
Home visit single session – 536

Are you a preferred provider with my private health insurance?

No, and here’s why. Preferred providers typically offer much shorter session times at 15 – 20 min, leaving little time for a detailed assessment and treatment. This is because health insurers cap what a clinic can charge per session for it to remain gap free. We would much rather spend the extra time with you to truly understand your condition and have you feeling better, faster.

What experience do you have?

We stay up to date on latest medical research/treatment and our therapists regularly update their skills world-wide. Our therapists are highly skilled with extensive experience in sports, private practice and NDIS sectors. Our treatment approach restores balance by decreasing tension, reducing pain, aligning your posture, increasing your range of motion, and building your strength. We are passionate about continued education and provide our therapists with regular workshops to advance our skills and progress the industry collectively. One incredibly powerful technique we utilise is Counterstrain, a gentle non invasive hands on approach aimed at reducing pain and restoring movement.

What happens after the first booking is made?

We will send you a welcome email with our intake form and some important information regarding your first session. We may contact you via email or over the phone to confirm your session time.
