The Health Lodge was established by a group of Australia’s leading health and medical professionals who understand that patients deserve comprehensive care.
"Over the years the team of practitioners I have worked with, from doctors to physiotherapists and naturopaths, has grown, as has my patients’ abilities to achieve wellness. The insights I gathered while observing this phenomena of integrative medicine led me to envision a place where patients could receive comprehensive health care that employed a range of modalities.
I wanted to create a haven for patients where they could receive all the treatment they needed to regain health - offering medical, psychological, nutritional, herbal and physical support.
Today, I am excited to offer you this vision as a reality. Creating the future of medicine, together!"
Reine DuBois - Clinical Director
The Health Lodge team is a working model of how medical and naturopathic healthcare can successfully work together. We know first-hand that when a patient moves from specialist to specialist it causes unnecessary stress and anxiety.
Our integrative approach means that treatments are identified effectively - we take patients on a journey towards long-term optimal health, not just temporary symptom relief. By understanding their treatment patients re-claim their health journey and feel respected and cared for.
It is our hope that more people suffering from chronic illness will find greater health through a style of treatment that is extremely considerate of their needs.
Combined Consultations are a very important aspect of working in an integrative way. As the old saying goes, ‘two heads are better than one’. Through working together practitioners at The Health Lodge are better able to understand the underlying causes of your condition.
Sharing our knowledge, with your permission, allows us to refine our understanding of your unique, biological profile and individuality and address your particular illness accurately and with greater success.
Integrative Combinations commonly used:
- Doctor and Naturopath
- Naturopath and Chiropractor
- Psychologist and Doctor
- Acupuncturist and Naturopath
- Doctor and Physiotherapist
- Psychologist and Naturopath
- Osteopath and Physiotherapist
You may choose any of these combinations. We recommend you discuss your options with reception at the time of booking so that they can co-ordinate the sessions.
Every week the entire team meet to discuss the combined care of patients. To date this has proven to be one of the most powerful forms of integration that takes place at The Health Lodge. The knowledge practitioners learn during these meetings about a patients’ complex health conditions is profound.
