It’s hard to know what to do when you’ve seen many practitioners before us. It’s frustrating when you get overtreated. When you keep spending time and money on superficial solutions. We’ve helped many people get to the bottom of their complaints.
A caring, structured approach to get you results
Our practitioners genuinely care - they’ll go the extra mile to see you back to long-term health. You can expect us to constantly learn and explore the latest research. Send you follow up advice and information. And check on you between your appointments.
We see “quick fixes”. But also complex, chronic complaints where a team approach is required. And a plan is created that makes sense - no ad-hoc treatments. With your permission, your team will discuss your case to get you better results - as quickly as possible.
Where your pain is chronic, we help you understand the plan and together we’ll track your progress. Adjusting when needed to make sure we get results.

REMEDIAL MASSAGE & MYOTHERAPY
Qualified remedial massage and myotherapy is more than just a massage. You may have dry needling, cupping, lymphatic drainage, kinesiology or Bowen therapy used.
Dietetics & Nutrition
Dietitians provide expert nutritional advice and education how to fuel your body appropriately. Your plan will set up incremental changes to make lasting changes.
- Dietetics and Nutrition at Body and Brain Centre
Naturopaths use diet, nutritional supplements, botanical therapy and lifestyle advice to tap into your body’s ability to heal itself. This holistic therapy treats the person and not the condition.
- Naturopathy at Body and Brain Centre
Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine
More than just needles - Traditional Chinese Medicine encompasses a way of life. Your skilful acupuncturist will give you home advice and maybe a herbal remedy to continue the healing. Cupping, moxa, laser (needle-free acupuncture) or massage may also be included.
Neurological & Vestibular Rehabilitation
We’ll help you use your brain’s ability to learn and adapt. You’ll tap into your brain’s learning ability using specific exercises and therapies. Your treatment may involve muscle strengthening and coordination, eye tracking, mirror therapy, balance training, and cognitive exercises.
- Neuro Rehabilitation at Body and Brain Centre
Biofeedback is a safe, medication-free, fun therapy suited for both kids and adults. Kids play games controlled by their brain and adults enjoy sitting back to watch a movie or documentary. We measure body functions - like heart rate variability, breathing or brainwaves. You’ll get cues to strengthen brain connections and train your body and brain to be aware of what it feels like to be healthy and relaxed.

What psychology can help with: Trauma. Anxiety. Depression. Grief.
Psychologists are trained to understand how you think, feel and learn. You’ll be invited to share your experiences. You’ll reflect. We’ll help you understand the connection between your physical and psychological self. And resolve conscious and subconscious problems.
What counselling can help with: Relationship difficulties. Postpartum blues. Adjusting to life changes. Stress relief.
Counselling is a journey to self healing. You’ll learn strategies and solutions to cope with your feelings but also understand why you are experiencing those difficulties. You’ll share your story and experiences and be given ‘homework’ when you are ready. You’ll explore and get a greater understanding of your mind body connection.
- Counselling at Body and Brain Centre
What clinical hypnotherapy can help with: Quit smoking. Reduce anxiety. Control weight. Deal with phobias.
Hypnosis is used to rewrite our negative, self-sabotaging behaviours and thoughts. When you are in a relaxed state, positive affirmations will be repeated. This is a literal therapy to retrain your subconscious thoughts to be more empowered and fulfilling. To realise you are enough. You are strong and capable.
