A little information about the treatments offered at All About Health Aldinga

  • Massage
    Massage is administered in order to achieve the proven benefits of: - Improved circulation of Oxygen to the tissues, providing faster healing and recovery time - Passive management of acid/alkaline balance by helping the body to remove CO2 and other bi-products of muscle fatigue - Improved lymph flow, providing a filtering function and delivering immune support more efficiently - Reduction of fibrous scar tissue and adhesions post-operatively and post injury - Mobilization of bi-products of muscle fatigue e.g. Lactic acid, and general toxic build up due to exposure to heavy metals, organic pollutants e.g. pesticides, solvents, etc - Reduction of pain and improved sense of well-being with increased endorphin flow. RELAXATION MASSAGE - Stress reduction and improved sense of wellbeing - Slow down the breathing and settle the nervous system - Relax and lengthen tight muscles e.g. neck and shoulder, jaw, lower back. REMEDIAL MASSAGE - Deep tissue massage focused on specific muscle groups Injury rehabilitation - Preventative care for athletes and repetitive work practices - Maintenance of range of movement and flexibility - Pain relief PREGNANCY MASSAGE (NB. After first tri-mester only) - Relaxation for the mother and baby during 60 or 90 minutes of nurturing massage - Calms the nervous system - Assists circulatory and eliminatory systems, improving oxygen levels in the blood for mother and baby - Helps to release and relieve muscles of the hips and lower back (e.g. sciatic pain) particularly in the last trimester - Important in Mother’s recovery after the baby is born and also during breast feeding to prevent muscle fatigue and soreness particularly between the shoulders
  • Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine
    Acupuncture and Chinese therapies look to help realign the body’s energetic balance by activating specific reflex points and energetic pathways of the body. This allows the body to harness its innate healing capacity at emotional, physical and chemical levels.
  • Kinesiology
    We may integrate kinesiology into body work sessions as required, given that this muscle testing approach allows you to balance energetically, physically, emotionally, chemically and spiritually. We get back to the source where the dysfunction is coming from.
  • Osteopathy
    Osteopath’s are highly trained in assessing the structure & function of the muscular & skeletal systems, provide holistic hands on manual treatment, and tailor management plans to help restore your body to its optimal state. Osteopaths work to assist with the alignment and free mobility of the body framework via the neuro-musculo-skeletal system. ​ Osteopathic philosophy holds that the body’s structure and it’s function are intimately related and that the body has a self-healing ability. ​ Many adults seek Osteopathic treatment for the following: ​ back, neck and peripheral joint pain headache, migraine muscle and ligament injuries (ankles, knees, hips, wrists, elbows, shoulders) sciatic nerve pain injuries after different kinds of falls pre- and post-surgery after car accidents or other forms of trauma such as falls (horse riders, skiers, motorbike riders) Prior to treatment, your Osteopath will take you through an in-depth personal & medical history, including injury-onset analysis & relevant assessment. This is vital in guiding the diagnostic process, to identify the root cause of your pain, and to educate you on the best treatment & management plan going forward for sufficient healing to occur. Osteopathy and Pregnancy Osteopaths treat pregnant women, working alongside GPs, midwives, Obstetricians and other allied health professionals with the aim to improve mobility and reduce biomechanical issues causing pain before, during and after giving birth. ​ Pregnant women frequently experience pelvic pain, lower back pain, neck and upper back pain, rib pain / difficulty taking a deep breath, reflux and carpal tunnel syndrome. Different stresses and strains occur during pregnancy due to the rapid changes in the woman’s body. Osteopaths have studied extensively at university level in the study of Anatomy and Physiology and Osteopathic treatment aims to address free motion and alignment of the body framework and its relationship to organ function, circulation, and the nervous system. Post-partum mothers frequently experience issues with the pelvic floor muscles. Osteopaths are trained to assess and treat the parts of the pelvis where the pelvic floor muscles attach and can determine whether there are any areas of increased tension or weaknesses that may benefit from Osteopathic treatment. Osteopaths also care for mothers after giving birth due to the strain placed on the body associated with feeding-postures / prolonged sitting and the process of giving birth. Osteopathy and Infants / Children Osteopaths work with, refer to and receive referrals from child health nurses, paediatricians, general medical practitioners and other health professionals. ​ Before any manual therapy is provided to a child, a thorough case history is taken and health status assessed. This draws on previously performed health and medical tests in addition to an osteopath’s own diagnostic tests and observations. Referral to a medical practitioner or other relevant health practitioners is facilitated wherever any potential complex health risks are identified or suspected.
  • Naturopathy
    Naturopathy is a complementary medicine, founded upon “nature cure”. It recognises that health and wellbeing are inter-dependent upon our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual environments. It acknowledges that each of us has an inherent healing ability, enhanced by working with nature to restore balance. This holistic approach utilises many tools to build a big picture perspective of what’s going on. Detailed questioning, physical assessments, dietary and lifestyle analysis identify various imbalances and patterns, providing a clearer understanding of the underlying cause of disease or illness. Mutually acceptable treatment plans are then developed, incorporating dietary and lifestyle modifications, herbal medicines, nutritional supplements and/or flower essences. Potential interactions with existing medications or treatments are always considered, ensuring a safe and effective approach to healings.
