What is Traditional Chinese Medicine?2018-02-10T09:17:55+09:00

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a system of primary health care that includes acupunctureChinese herbal medicineremedial massageexercise and breathing therapy (such as qigong), and diet and lifestyle advice. In Australia, the most popular forms of TCM health care are acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.

Traditional Chinese Medicine has an uninterrupted history of development in China and other parts of East Asia dating back thousands of years. The primary feature of modern TCM is the premise that good health relies on the restoration and maintenance of harmony, balance and order to the individual.

TCM takes a holistic approach to understanding normal function and disease processes and focuses as much on the prevention of illness as it does on the treatment.

Is Traditional Chinese Medicine/Acupuncture covered by my health fund?2021-03-31T20:29:44+09:00

Any good health fund will cover TCM/Acupuncture if you have ‘extras’ cover. The amount that the health fund will pay, per consultation, and the overall limit that the fund will pay in a year, is individual to your health fund. The fund often pays part of the consultation, through a system called ‘HICAPS’. Using HICAPS means that when you pay for your consultation, you are able to swipe your health fund card, and then only pay the difference between what the health fund pays, and the consultation fee. This saves you a trip to the health fund office! Make an enquiry with your health fund to find out the specifics of how much your health fund will cover.

Do I need a referral from a GP to see a Physiotherapist?2021-03-31T20:35:04+09:00

Physiotherapists are primary healthcare practitioners, and therefore you do not need a referral from a GP to attend. All you need to do is call, and book an appointment. In many cases, however, you may be referred by your GP for treatment for a specific condition that they have identified. Your Physiotherapist will take a thorough history to confirm the diagnosis and then recommend a care plan and exercises to help you reach your health goals.

Are supplements included in the cost of a Naturopathy consultation?2024-05-03T13:33:11+09:00

Supplements are not included in the cost of a naturopathy consultation. Extra expenses may arise for shipping, herbal prescriptions, nutritional compounds, custom herbal or nutritional supplements.

During your consultation, we’ll talk about tailoring these costs to fit your budget and requirements.

I usually aim to suggest only two herbs or supplements to keep things simple and cost-effective. However, if you’re following a specific protocol, like a gut healing plan, you might require more supplements.
