Government Bows to Public Pressure Calling for a $2million Natural Therapy Review

Written by Emma Tommasini

Thanks to the publics incredible efforts, the Government has bowed to public pressure over the axing of natural therapy rebates.

Just days after the removal of health fund rebates for natural therapies came into effect on 1 April, Greg Hunt MP has announced $2 million for updated natural therapy reviews to re-examine which therapies should once again be eligible for Subsidy through the Private Health Insurance rebate.

The review update will also look at removing the 'banned' list so insurers can cover whichever therapies they want, even if they won't attract the Subsidy. 

13,323 members of the public took the time to send a personalised message to Minister Hunt and LNP MPs and Senators. All major parties now recognise this is an important public issue that won't go away.

Kylie our January 2019 $1000 Weight Loss Challenge Winner!

Written by Emma Tommasini

 

**Client Testimonial**  The challenge has changed my life for the better. To me this isn’t just an 8 week challenge, this is the rest of my life and I’ve found it easy and enjoyable. For the last 8 weeks I’ve had no gout or stomach issues, I’ve got my confidence back and my knees are loving me more. Tracey my gorgeous consultant asked me what was my goal the first time we meet and throughout the 8 weeks. I told her I didn’t have a goal, because I was too embarrassed to say, I’m just hoping I can commit to this for 8 weeks and not fall off the wagon. I really believe this has been a team effort, because Tracey was always there for encouragement, kind words, recipes, keto bread and her various types of water flavours. I can honestly say sign up, listen to your consultant, but also make yourself accountable, because the results are you get your life back, your confidence increases and you stop being a spectator in life and become a participant. Thank you First Things First, I will continue to support your amazing business- Kylie, Pallarenda.  Kylie Lost 14.2kg and 57.5cm in Just 8 weeks. AMAZING! Our next 5 week Challenge starts after Easter on Monday 29th April. Book your Free Consultation on 4728 7165 or online by clicking HERE

Written by Emma Tommasini

There are many types of massage therapy, from classics like Swedish and Deep Tissue, to lesser know styles like Shiatsu. Whether you'd like to branch out a bit or have a health condition or injury, choosing a style of massage can be confusing if you're not quite sure what it involves. Here is a list of the most popular types of massage at First Things First Wellness Centre.

 

Swedish Massage 

A general relaxation massage using lighter pressure to soothe the muscles and ease tension in the body and mind. Kneading and gliding techniques are used on the more superficial layers of muscles. A great choice if suffering from low energy, anxiety or depression.

Changes to Health Fund Rebates

Written by Emma Tommasini

 

The Good News! Recent private health insurance reforms from the Australian Government did not impact health fund rebates for Remedial Massage Therapy. You can continue to claim on massage treatments from our talented team of therapists as per usual. 

The not so good news.... As of April 1st 2019 Naturopathy will no longer be covered under private health insurance policies. Appointments with our Naturopath Emma Tommasini will no longer be eligible for health fund rebates.

Emma would like to offer her regular massage clients who usually claim with their health fund a $10 discount on future 1 hour massage treatments.

The Detox Box: Combating Modern Health Ailments

Written by Megan Colwell

 

I want to delve into some of the reasons we have ended up where we have with our health. This will give you some insight into why we Australians are amongst the unhealthiest in the world.

So why are people using Far Infrared saunas?

They need help with chronic pain; they need some time to themselves. They want to feel the way they used to. Not feel niggly and uncomfortable in their body that has perhaps started to show them signs that it's turning on them; that it's getting old and they're not doing something right. The majority of people who use far-infrared saunas are people who need help and have lost touch with their body.
