Exercise Physiology, Dietitian, Health and Wellbeing Services

We recognise the strong link between physical and mental health to assist to improve a person’s overall wellbeing and recovery. We also know that some mental health conditions increase the risk of chronic diseases which include:

  • Metabolic diseases such as insulin resistance and diabetes.
  • Heart disease, such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
  • Musculoskeletal conditions such as arthritis and osteoporosis.

Exercise and diet may assist in preventing the onset of these chronic diseases. Our allied health clinicians and multidisciplinary team can assist with the management of these diseases.

A comprehensive individual healthy lifestyle plan can be tailored to your personal diet and exercise goals. Your individualised healthy lifestyle plan is then followed up in individual sessions fortnightly or monthly with the dietitian or exercise physiologist.

The following group health programs and services are also available, New Moves and Tobacco Free at many of our locations across NSW. We deliver these programs on a group basis. Individual smoking cessation support is also available.
