Bowen Therapy is one of the most effective treatments available to help relieve many health complaints. Whether you are suffering with a sport injury, stress, back and neck issues, headaches, digestive and respiratory problems, we can help.
Bowen Therapy is one of the most versatile and effective therapeutic and holistic soft tissue treatments available today. It is a gentle hands-on treatment, using light touch whilst making delicate and precise movements over the nerves, muscles and ligaments. Its ability to re-align and balance the body means it is effective for most conditions.
Simply put, Bowen Therapy can improve your overall general health and remove the negative effects of a stressful lifestyle.
If you are suffering from musculoskeletal pain, injuries, or dysfunctions that are having an impact on your movement and/or mobility, then myotherapy may be just what you need. Myotherapy involves the assessment and treatment of these conditions and is used in all stages of therapy to restore and maintain the integrity and correct functioning of soft issues.
When you visit Ocean Grove Allied Health Clinic, your myotherapist will use a range of techniques, based on your individual situation. These techniques can include:
Remedial massage is defined as the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. It is performed to create favourable conditions that allow the body to return to normal health after injury, thereby relieving the physical effects a patient may present with.
Remedial massage is designed to balance muscle and soft tissue length, tension and tone which will in turn promote normal return of joint/capsular/bone function. It increases the flow of blood and lymph, particularly in the injured areas, thus removing blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions resulting from injury.
Hi I’m Sally – a local Ocean Grove resident, Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) and Nutritionist and owner of Bodywise Nutrition. And, I’m Amy, also an APD and Nutritionist who has recently joined the practice at Ocean Grove.
We are nutrition scientists with a minimum of four years’ university study behind us. We take very seriously our responsibility of providing evidence-based nutrition advice and support. This means the residents of the Bellarine Peninsular can be confident that advice from us is solid and trustworthy.
We help treat a wide range of conditions in adults and children including diabetes, heart disease, cancers, gastrointestinal diseases, food allergies, food intolerance’s, disordered eating as well as overweight and obesity. We’re also here to educate and support those people just wishing to be a healthier version of themselves.
We understand that there is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to diet and nutrition (in other words, what works for one person may be different to what works for another). And the truth is that there are many ways for people to have a healthy diet.
And it’s at this individual level that an we can help. We consider the whole person – that is, each person’s unique profile, such as their medical history, as well as their needs, goals and lifestyle. We also assess the body of scientific evidence, and are flexible with the advice and support offered, on a case-by-case basis.
Being able to tailor nutrition advice to find the best approach for each person is the cornerstone of ‘Medical Nutrition Therapy’ – it’s what APDs are qualified to do.

Or do you simply want to grow together or go deeper into a knowledge of each other, building a purposeful life together that brings about mutually lasting satisfaction.
Couples Counselling can help to identify the problems that exist between you and your partner, help to define and communicate your emotional needs in your relationship and help to rebuild trust if it has been broken.
My purpose is to enable you as a couple to rebuild a relationship that brings about meaning and satisfaction. One that is able to weather a storm or any trial that comes your way. A relationship that enables you to share a rekindled passion which lights a warm, fulfilling and lasting connection with your partner.
We offer one or two day Couples Marathons, a highly vigorous and intensive process where couples are afforded the opportunity to delve deep into their relationship issues in a confidential non judgemental environment without the time restrictions you would normally have in a standard 60-90 minute couples session. Marathons provide a way for you to fast track your therapy, compacting 12 weeks of traditional weekly therapy into just two full days.
These intensives are ideal for working couples where time may be of essence. Our marathons are well suited for couples who may be dealing with additional relationship pressures and flow on effects from their work due vicarious trauma and / or compassion fatigue.
The frame work we use is purely evidence based therapy from over 40 years of Gottman research methods designed to rebuild weathered and torn relationships.
During marathons couples work through their difficulties, reshape their relationship by addressing their emotional injuries and learning to relate to each other differently through powerful conflict resolution strategies.
In a relatively short period of time couples can bring about needed change in resolving issues through effective interpersonal methods and psycho education on relationships. Couples are also provided with practical skills to carry on beyond therapy.
Our Couples Marathon provides you with an opportunity to heal from betrayal, restore lost connection, trust and commitment. Learn how to communicate in a way that brings you closer together reigniting your passion and strengthening your bond to one another.
Bringing Baby Home workshop is for expectant couples and parents of infants. This workshop is a Research based Psycho-educational 1 day workshop for those expecting a baby(s) and for new parents who are in the process of transition into parenthood.
The wonder of having a baby is precious yet a very vulnerable time for parents who may be feeling the added stressors and responsibilities in the midst of all the changes that begin to take place from the time they conceive.
Following the birth of your child the broken sleep starts to wear on you to already exhausted parents who are attending to their child’s needs and find themselves sailing in the uncharted waters.
Parents often place high expectations on themselves and feel enormous pressure to provide more for their family. Gottman Research reveals that 69 percent of parents after their first year of parenting experience significant reduction in their relationship satisfaction due to increased conflict, disappointment and hurt feelings.
