Update regarding Victoria's 7-Day Lockdown - 27 May 2021

Authorised Health Services

Authorised allied health services include:

  • allied health professionals working in private practice providing essential clinical care where telehealth services are not clinically appropriate; or
  • allied health services provided by allied health professionals working in private practice providing care through telehealth and other virtual care options;


What does this mean for Chiropractic & Acupuncture?

Chiropractor & Acupuncture practitioners are able to provide “essential clinical care” where telehealth services are not clinically appropriate.

The Department of Health has clarified the difference between essential clinical care and routine care.

  • to prevent a significant change/deterioration in functional independence which would result in an escalation of care needs
  • to provide assessment and diagnostic services to clients / patients whose care have been delayed as a result of previous restrictions, with any further delay likely to result in deterioration in functional independence or adverse health outcomes

All chiropractic & acupuncture clients are advised that under this definition of essential clinical care, routine care is not permitted.

The strict definition of ‘essential care’ means the majority of private practice patients should rescheduled until after the lockdown.

Patients should be seen only if delaying their care for seven days will lead to significant deterioration of their health.

What does this mean for Psychology?

Psychology will be by telehealth, or by face-to-face (but only for urgent care where telehealth is not clinically appropriate)

What does this mean for Remedial Massage & Naturopathy?

At this stage both naturopathy, massage therapy, remedial massage therapy and myotherapy are not listed as authorised face to face health services that are permitted to treat during the lockdown.

Naturopathy consults can be delivered via telehealth.

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land and waterways on which our offices stand, the Boon Wurrung, Wurundjeri and Wathaurong people, and pay respects to Elders past, present and emerging.

OUR SERVICES

Chiropractic

Chiropractic is the largest drug-free health care profession in the world and chiropractors focus on working with the body’s own natural healing capabilities.

Psychology

All of our psychologists have completed a Doctorate or a Masters in Psychology which is at least 6 years of university training.

Massage Therapy

Massage promotes circulation allowing faster healing of muscles and other soft tissues, and can even improve quality of sleep.

Naturopathy

Trained in the philosophies, principles and practices of western naturopathic medicine and medical science, Rowenna practices with a holistic view toward health and illness.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture and herbs are both an integral part of TCM (Trad. Chinese Medicine), which has been proven to be a very safe and effective health care modality in Australia.

Counselling & Nutritional Medicine

The combined support of counselling and nutritional medicine can provide an essential support for the body and mind.
