What We Do

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is perfect as a standalone treatment however can also be used in conjunction with massage and/or cupping. Our Chinese Medicine Doctors and Acupuncturists will be able to work out a tailored Chinese Medicine diagnosis and a treatment plan for your specific condition. We understand not everyone fits in the same box, which is why each and every treatment is tailored specifically for you.

 

Acupuncture is versatile and can be used for many different conditions. Most commonly, acupuncture is used for pain relief and injury rehabilitation. We use specific points to target and trigger tight, sore and stiff muscles. Many of our techniques are painless and assist in increasing range of motion and decreasing pain. All treatments are based on evidence-based practices.

 

Acupuncture can also be used for headaches and migraines, digestive health and women’s health conditions such as infertility, hormonal imbalances, pregnancy and menopause, as well as stress.

Massage

We understand that some people enjoy deep tissue muscle release work whilst others like a gentle relaxation massage. At The Health Cove, you can choose from deep tissue, relaxation or a bit a both. We also offer pregnancy massage. All massage treatments have an option to add acupuncture or cupping for some extra zen or some pain relief. Just let your practitioner know during during your consultation what you prefer.

Cupping

Michael Phelps might have made cupping ‘on trend’ however it’s been around for almost two thousand years. Cupping is a simple muscle relaxation technique, it holds the muscles under tension by suction and you’ll experience a gentle release when the cups come off. Cupping is usually added in combination with massage and or acupuncture for the ultimate treatment experience. Perfect for tight sore muscles and increasing blood circulation to the muscle tissue.

Chinese Medicine

Chinese Medicine is one of the longest recorded medicines in history, and it is all about attention to detail. It has been around for thousands of years, and it is still being practiced around the world in collaboration with modern western medicine. Initial consultations aren’t quick 10 minute sessions, we don’t like to rush with your health, meaning we take our time, slow things down and go through a few health check questions which help us tailor your treatment plan.

Our Chinese Medicine Practitioners can prescribe Chinese herbal medicine, if required. We offer free Chinese Medicine consultations. Simply just give us a call to book in a free 30 minute consultation. We also work with western supplements such as Metagenic and Bioceuticals.

Women’s Health

We have treatments for many different women’s health complaints. We provide safe, effective and non-invasive treatment using up to date medical research.

 

Chantelle, our registered Acupuncturist has special interests in working with irregular periods, painful periods, PMS, menopause, hormonal imbalances such as endometriosis & PCOS, infertility, IVF support and pregnancy complaints. We offer consultations and treatments all in the one session, which means there is no rush, we can take our time and really understand what is going on. We like to also provide lifestyle and dietary advice for healthy conception and pregnancy.

Chiropractic + CranioSacral Balancing

Chiropractic is a safe and effective form of healthcare which improves the function of the spine and nervous system. Although chiropractic care may help headaches, neck pain, lower back pain, osteoarthritis, TMJ dysfunction and many other symptoms, the underlying intention of chiropractic is on greater health through improving neurological function. Chiropractic treatments may also improve symmetry and spinal alignment, as well as improved energy, mental clarity, concentration and overall feeling of emotional balance. David’s approach to chiropractic is relaxing, gentle and includes massage and stretching to support the healing of the body.

 

CranioSacral Balancing releases tension from the fluid-membrane system surrounding the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). Typically a session lasts one and a half hours (less for children). It is profoundly relaxing and may be beneficial for a wide range of conditions including: headaches, migraines, low back pain, sciatica and pregnancy. Overall, CranioSacral is a great treatment for assisting improvement in brain and nervous system function and it helps to release tension from everyday modern life.

Psychology

Psychology is the study of human behaviour. Psychologists focus on the connections between behaviour (what we do), internal processes (thoughts and feelings) and our environment. Psychologists provide services to individuals of all ages, families and groups from all ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.

 

 

Through supportive listening, reflections and conversation, psychologists utilise a variety of evidence-based approaches to help you reach your goals — including cognitive-behavioural (thoughts & what we do), emotional (moods, feelings), interpersonal (between people) and solution focused (goal driven) therapies.

 

Seated and talking in a comfortable room with your psychologist, sessions typically go for 50-60 mins.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is a collaborative treatment based on the relationship between an individual, couple or family and a psychologist. This confidential client-centred environment is unique in that the psychologist gives you and your loved ones unconditional positive regard (acceptance and support without judgment).

 

After a course of therapy, you are likely to have developed insight about yourself and insight into the issue/s you brought to the sessions; have improved your daily functioning (e.g. sleep better, be more active, feel more in control of your thoughts and behaviours) and feel happier (more connected, more mindful, calmer) as a result. You are also likely to have learned new skills and strategies so you are more resilient and can better navigate whatever challenges arise in the future.
