What do I need to prepare?

Be prepared to provide your previous medical or surgical history, and list of medication. Please arrive 5-10min earlier for the 1st visit to fill a patient intake form. Try to avoid eating too much or too hungry when visiting the clinic. Our clinic is very calm and quiet environment, please switch off or silent the mobile phone once inside the treatment room.

How many visits will I need?

The number of treatments will vary depending on the problem and individual. After a thorough assessment and treatment, the practitioners will discuss their treatment plan for the rehabilitation process.

What should I wear to my appointment?

After initial consultation and assessment, you'll be asked to undress down to underwear for the treatment.  Please wear comfortable and modest underwear or even a pair of shorts is appropriate.   Try to take off the jewellery or watch before the consultation.

Do I have to be referred by a doctor?

No, myotherapist or remedial massage practitioner can assess and treat without referral by a doctor.   You can claim the private health insurance directly through HICAPS.

Treatment duration depends on your pain and injury history, the severity of your impairments,  and other factors.  Re-evaluations will be done to assess your progress and your therapist communicates with your doctor to help you achieve your therapy goals.

We sees and treats patient for a wide range of conditions and diagnoses.  Please visit our Services/Common Conditions We Treat for an extensive list of conditions and diagnoses we see patients for.

Please check our Health Funds page. You can check with your Private Health Insurance directly to find out whether covered and the rebate level.

It depends on the policy your purchased from private health insurances.  A few health insurances give rebate based on percentage from 20% to 90% or even 100% bonus claim, such as Australian Unity, NIB etc.  While others give fixed amount of rebate from $12 to $60 per visit, such as AHM, Medibank etc.

Alternatively you can pop in our clinic with the card to have a quote, except BUPA which doesn't set up quoting through HICAPS yet.
