Frequently Asked Questions
Can I get a healthcare rebate with Osteopathy?
Yes. Check with your Private Health Insurance to make sure you have osteopathy included in your extras cover. Then, bring your health fund card with youto your next appointment & we can make the claim for you on the spot.
Are there any other claims I can make?
Yes. If you don’t have Private Health insurance or it’s run out, and you’ve had a chronic musculoskeletal condition (longer than 6 months), you can ask your GP for an Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) Plan. This entitles you to 5 visits to an allied health professional where you receive a medicare rebate of $55 back per session (saving $275 per year).
We also accept Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) Allied Health Treatment Cycle Referrals for eligible DVA clients.
How long are sessions?
Sessions are either 30- or 60-mins.
How much does it cost?
This varies depending on which practitioner you’re seeing.
Our fees are visible when you go to the booking link here.
How often should I book treatments for?
This varies on your presentation & goals. Your osteopath will advise you on their best recommendations within your osteopathic consult.
It’s important to note that our philosophy is to help clients improve as fast as possible and be less reliant on ongoing osteopathic sessions. This is why we go through posture correction exercises in each visit, encourage clients to attend weekly movement classes or to join the reset online program.
What can I expect in my first session?
The primary focus of the initial osteopathic consultation is to help you understand the source of your problem, why it has happened and why it’s not going away for good.
We will take a detailed case history, go through various assessments, and then this will dictate how the osteopath forms his/her treatment approach i.e. osteopathy only, a combination of osteopathy & movement, or movement only, based on what’s going to be most advantageous for you.
If you’ve completed the “Client Information Form” you’ll receive after booking in your first session, this will allow the osteopath to spend more time on treatment with you.
How do I choose a practitioner?
Great question! Everyone is qualified to treat all of the listed common presentations but visit the individual bios to help decide who seems most aligned with what you’re looking for.
What should I wear to a session?
Preferably wear active wear. Removal of clothing is kept to a minimum as we mostly treat fully clothed, however we may ask you to remove some clothing during the assessment with your consent. Most women feel comfortable wearing a sports bra.
What should I bring with me to the session?
Bring any referrals, relevant imaging results, and/ore medicare or private health care cards (we do health rebates on the spot).
Do I need a referral?
You don’t need a referral to see an osteopath.However, if you’ve had a chronic musculoskeletal condition (longer than 6 months), you can ask your GP for an Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) Plan. This entitles you to 5 visits to an allied health professional where you receive a medicare rebate of $55 back per session (saving $275 per year).
