physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is a science-based, hands-on manual therapy. 

Common conditions that physiotherapy can help include: 

Acute injuries such as

  • Muscle strains 
  • Joint sprains 
  • Sports Injuries

Chronic / Complex injuries and issues such as 

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Headaches
  • Aggravation of old injuries
  • Fibromyalgia 
  • Weak/unstable feeling joints 
  • Arthritis 

Another side to physiotherapy is “pre-hab”, or prevention of injury. 

If you are about to start a new fitness regimen, compete in a sporting event, or increase your training –  you may benefit from a musculoskeletal screening to ensure you are physically ready to start and won’t be set back in your efforts by unwanted injuries.

At Aura, physiotherapy treatment takes a holistic approach and comprises a variety of manual therapy techniques including soft tissue work, osteopathy-based alignment work, mobilisations, manipulations, dry-needling, myofascial releases, craniosacral techniques, taping, and exercise prescription – all depending on what your specific individual rehabilitation needs are.

initial appointment: 1 hour $115

private health fund rebates are available for all physiotherapy consultations.

energy therapy

Energy therapy is a complementary/alternative therapy and is a form of energetic healing work, dealing with the body’s energetic and electric fields.
Energy therapy benefits individuals who have issues with ongoing pain or symptoms which conventional manual therapy or treatment is not alleviating completely; fibromyalgia, fatigue, headaches, migraines, tinnitus and nerve injuries; as well as non-physical issues such as trouble sleeping restfully, stress, anxiety, depression, feeling an inability to relax and stop thinking; issues with trust, confidence, fear, problems with self-worth, or lack of productivity.
You may not know exactly what it is you need or what to ask for, and simply have a feeling that something is not right and you can’t quite define the issue or where to seek help from.

All energetic/alternative healing modalities are different even if they go by similar nomenclature, and every individual responds differently to every healing practitioner.

At Aura, energy therapy primarily works with sacred geometry, shifting the energetic gridwork of the individual, and so it has an effect and ability to cause lasting changes across the physical, emotional, spiritual and energetic planes.

standard appointment: 1 hour $135

integrative acupuncture

Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine and originally a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), in which fine needles are inserted into specific points on the body for treating problems or gaining health and wellbeing outcomes.

There are many forms of acupuncture – traditional, western, dry-needling, Japanese and Korean.

At Aura, we use both Dry Needling, and a form of Acupuncture Oriental-Medicine called Integrative Acupuncture.

Integrative Acupuncture draws its main influences from Japanese Meridian Therapy, and Dai Shin Hari (a style of acupuncture taught by paediatric specialist Tanioka Sensei in Osaka, Japan), and blends them with the contemporary field of manual therapy with a focus on the fascial system.

Integrative Acupuncture uses very fine, single use sterile disposable needles, much finer than those typically used for dry needling. For children or those who have a needle phobia but would like to experience the benefits of this style of treatment, we can also use a blunt non-insertion tool, called a Shonishin to treat the meridians and points.
