Health, Happiness and Healing

Set aside 8 weeks (from 21st April) to devote to yourself, to learn more about how you can achieve optimum health, happiness and fitness goals!

 

This new personalised holistic program will be led by a qualified Physiotherapist who has particular expertise in healthy ageing; it is aimed at attending to your mental, physical, psychological and emotional health. 

To start off, and to ensure your program will meet your needs, you will undergo a one-hour 1:1 assessment with Dr Natalie de Morton, a highly qualified and experienced Physiotherapist.  She will then design an individualised program where you will be able to track your progress.

Based on your individualised program, participate in a 1/2 hour program each week under supervision, followed by morning tea and a chance to hear an impressive line up of health-related speakers, learning about healthy eating, swap recipes, while connecting with others who will cheer you on.  At the end of the program, you will be able to measure your progress and perhaps choose your own next steps. 

This program, supported through a grant from the Mornington Peninsula Shire,  forms the cornerstone of a ‘Health and Wellness’ circle where people encourage each other, and can access other related Centre programs that are on offer daily.

1:1 Appointments for Consultation  with Dr de Morton who is facilitating the program - available now ($50 - claimable on private health cover) 

Program:

Wednesdays, commencing 21st April -  10.45 til 11.45am
