Most commonly at The Health Cove, acupuncture is used in treatment for common injury and sports rehabilitation, stress management, pregnancy & IVF support. For managing sporting and common injuries we typically use specific points to target and trigger tight, sore and stiff muscles. Many of our techniques are mostly painless, relaxing and may assist in increasing range of motion and decreasing pain.
We understand that some people enjoy deep tissue muscle release work whilst others like more of a gentle relaxation massage. At The Health Cove, you can choose from remedial deep tissue, sports, pregnancy, lymphatic and relaxation. All our massage tables have the option to have pregnancy massage lying face down at any stage of your pregnancy or alternatively on your side for your comfort. We use locally sourced organic massage oils and all of our rooms have heating and cooling, natural light and privacy for the ultimate experience. Our remedial massage therapists are professional and highly trained and all can provide private health rebates on the day of your massage.

Cupping is usually added in combination with massage and or acupuncture for the ultimate treatment experience. Perfect for relaxing tight sore muscles by increasing blood circulation to the muscle tissue.
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 yet it is still being practiced around the world in collaboration with modern western medicine. Initial consultations aren’t a quick 10 minute session, 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 such as your gut health and diet which help us tailor your treatment plan from a traditional Chinese medicine perspective.
Our Chinese Medicine Practitioners can prescribe Chinese herbal medicine, if required. We also stock in house western natural supplements of Metagenics and Bioceuticals for your convenience.

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 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.
