Why Active Health Clinic?
With so many different treatment options it can be hard to decide what is the best fit for you. So why choose the team at Active Health Clinic?
Our team has over 30,000 hours of experience in treating fatigue, and pain and related disorders. This is our specialty.
Our practitioners are university-trained allied health practitioners with a minimum of 4 years of study, not people with 4-month personal training certificates. Our practitioners also lecture master's students at La Trobe University and Victoria University. Meet our practitioners.
We are registered with Medicare, WorkCover, TAC, DVA and private health insurers. Find out more about making claims and accessing rebates for our programs.
Science and research
Our treatment is based on the latest research and is continually developed to reflect this. No one aspect of treatment will get you better on its own, so we investigate and provide physiological, psychological and nutritional treatment to help you on your way to recovery. Find out more about our services and programs.
Connections and referral networks
We are connected with world leaders in the field, including general physicians, rheumatologists, cardiologists, paediatricians, immunologists, pharmacologists and psychiatrists. Through our referral network, we aim to ensure that every medical need is met. We also have connections with well-known Australian universities and research facilities.
Science and research drive what we do but our staff also have personal experience dealing with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), orthostatic intolerance (OI), pain and autoimmune conditions. We live it.
Individual and flexible treatment
Our programs are confidential and entirely tailored to you to suit your lifestyle. Our approach to an adult’s treatment is different to that of an adolescent or an athlete.
We supply guidelines, not rules. While many treatments dictate how to live your life, we supply guidelines you can apply to your life wherever it takes you with family, work or fun.
We give you the tools to practice in the real world, not in a false hospital environment. Our treatment approach is long-term, not only an hour with a trainer where once you leave you are still faced with daily challenges and without concrete tools to manage your health. Find out more about our programs and services.
We don’t want to see you in the long term. (Don’t worry, it’s not you!) Our treatment has an end point as we believe that management should be focused on learning and independence. We teach you the tools so you don’t need us anymore, though we will always be there if you do!
Appointments are available from Monday to Saturday, with early and late times available to fit with your lifestyle. Appointments are made on a session by session basis, so you’re not locked in. Contact us to find out more or to book an appointment.
A caring team
Our team is understanding, compassionate, positive and has a sense of humour when needed. We will also keep in touch with your team of health professionals in writing and verbally, as well as with your family, workplace and school when needed. Meet our team.
