Why choose our wellness centre?

The Wellness Workshop is one of the few, if not the only wellness centre in Melbourne that advocates for Health At Every Size (HAES). This means that we deliver treatments to optimise health and wellbeing that address behaviours and habits across all aspects of your physical, mental and emotional health, rather than focusing solely on weight outcomes. This enables our wellness centre to provide weight neutral compassionate care that is free of judgement, bias or assumptions while delivering long-term sustainable results that truly improve your lifestyle. We work with a reliable network of doctors and allied health practitioners who provide referral pathways for additional care and provide rebates for Medicare, Private Health Insurance and other subsidy programs like NDIS for eligible services. 

 

We don't believe in fad diets or short-term solutions that leave you feeling disappointed and defeated. You can feel safe, assured and comforted knowing that your health and happiness is in the hands of trusted, qualified practitioners who care more about your progress than their back pockets.
