Other Services at Andra Health Melbourne
In addition to our Physiotherapy, Nutrition and Pilates services, we offer a number of other services to help you improve your health and wellbeing.
Sports massage is a highly beneficial technique to reduce pain and tension in tight, sore muscles. Sports massage can help to improve circulation, aid drainage of excess fluid, improve movement, relieve pain and aid relaxation. It may help a range of conditions, including problems with the neck, back, upper and lower limbs, headaches, and stress. Sports massage can be used to enhance performance, warm up muscles and aid healing. Sports massage is not only for athletes, it can help anyone to relax and lower stress as it improves circulation and reduces tension.
Acupuncture involves the use of single-use, pre-sterilised disposable needles of varying widths, lengths and materials that pierce the skin at the acupuncture points. Your Physiotherapist will determine the locations of these points on the basis of an assessment of the cause of the imbalance. A number of needles may be used during each treatment, and these are typically left in position for between 20 and 30 minutes before being removed.
Trigger point acupuncture may also be used to facilitate relaxation in specific muscles following traumas, for longer-term unresolved muscle pain, or as a means of increasing muscle length in order to aid stretch and rehabilitation. In the latter case, the needle is inserted into the affected muscle until the tissue is felt to relax under the needle, which is then removed.
Mindfulness if the practice of bring in the present moment. So often in our lives we are focussed on 'what's next' - the next meal, the next thing on our to-do-list, the next task or goal. Learning to listen to your body and switch off those nagging thoughts you can become more productive, more focussed and - dare we say - more happy! We offer both mindfulness 1-2-1 sessions and regular monthly workshops available to all.
