Dry Needling

A scientific adaptation of traditional Chinese acupuncture techniques involves the use of sterilised, fine, single-use acupuncture needles which are inserted into soft tissue to reduce tightness, pain and inflammation.



Manual Therapy

A number of different ‘hands-on’ techniques including passive movements, positioning and manoeuvring of body segments, limbs and joints to encourage flexibility, good posture and alleviate pain and stiffness.




Combination of soft and deep tissue techniques to relieve muscle tension, tightness and realign muscle fibres. We use a hypoallergenic, 100% natural anti-inflammatory cream during massage.



Myofascial Release

Combination of trigger point releases, sustained acupressure and deep tissue massage techniques applied to tight and aching muscles to unwind tension, relieve ‘knots’, reduce scar tissue and relax body segments.



Do I need a referral for physiotherapy treatment?

No, if you are a private patient seeking physiotherapy treatment, you do not need a referral from a doctor – just call and make an appointment straight away. However, if you are seeking treatment via an insurance claim through Workers Compensation or Motor Vehicle Accident Claims or are seeking treatment via DVA (Department of Veteran Affairs) or Medicare, you will need a doctor’s referral requesting physiotherapy treatment.
