Sometimes Massage compliments Chiropractic care really well, along with other musculoskeletal therapies such as Dry needling and Acupuncture. We often recommend patients have a massage first before we adjust, especially if there is a strong muscle component to their condition. Often the combined soft tissue and joint treatments enable an improved outcome to care. Remedial Massage can help reduce tension in the supporting muscles of the spine allowing for increased mobility and range of motion.
Massage helps to prepare the muscles for the joint manipulation or chiropractic adjustment by allowing greater range of motion within the joint, and hopefully less involuntary tightening that can sometimes occur before a chiropractic adjustment (reflex). As a result we feel your adjustment may be enhanced due to the extra relaxation.
We offer No Out Of Pocket BULK BILLING under certain circumstances* for Chiropractic & Clinical Psychology only.
*There is no out of pocket fee for Enhanced Care Plan patients for Chiropractic Care and Mental Health Care Plan clients for Clinical Psychology. Please note that only your GP can approve these types of bulk billed visits on Medicare, and your referring GP will be in direct collaboration with your allied health provider regarding your condition.

Private Health Funds
We offer rebates on all Chiropractic, Remedial Massage, Psychology, Dry Needling, and Acupuncture appointments using your Private Health Card and our HICAPS machine.
If you expect financial assistance from certain Private Health Fund insurance plans, some policies dictate that you take certain approval steps before commencing care, such as waiting periods. We are a Medibank Private Member’s choice provider.
On the Spot Claims
We are able to use our HICAPS machine to enable fast and easy claiming on the spot. First, remember to bring your private health fund card with you for each appointment. Then, with each visit we swipe your card, and your fund will pay a certain amount of the total consultation fee, leaving a gap fee. Ultimately, the amount of the fee is determined by how much coverage you have for a particular service. Additionally, you can always check this by calling your private health fund and letting them know the service you have booked for.
No Private Health?
You don’t need a Private Health Fund, a Bulk Billing referral, or permission from anyone to see a Chiropractor. If you don’t have a private health care card, you can check out our fee structure on our website. Be careful that you don’t allow your health to be compromised. It’s your body, your health, and your future. We do offer pensioner/ concession card/ student fees and are happy to discuss your situation.
