Welcome to the Connective Healthcare blog!

Welcome to the Connective Healthcare blog! Connective Healthcare is a multi-disciplinary clinic that offers physiotherapy, podiatry, massage therapy, naturopathy, Pilates and dietetics. We are a team of professionals based in East Bentleigh and our focus is on getting YOU to your optimal level of health and then maintaining it. If you want to learn more about any of our team members, click here.

My name is Lauren, and my fiancé Stephen and I own and manage the clinic. Stephen is a podiatrist and used to work at the clinic (when it was previously More Than Physio) and in August 2014 we purchased the clinic. We changed the name to reflect our goal of achieving optimal health and the importance of connecting the different aspects of health. We have been introducing new services such as dietetics and hope to continue to expand and grow the clinic.

Unlike the rest of the team at the clinic, I do not work in allied health. I am a full time secondary school teacher and a part time yoga instructor. I volunteer for and run a not-for-profit organisation called Tournament of Minds, I am busily planning a wedding and I am now running a new business. I am like YOU – busy, time poor and often neglect to put my health first. I have the best intentions to eat well and exercise regularly but these fall to the wayside when I am tired or have deadlines to meet (or Masterchef is on TV!). I know how challenging it is to look after yourself and I am hoping that this blog will provide information and tips which you can use to improve your health and well being.

I will be picking the brains of our health professionals to get answers to the questions that we all have about health care (like ‘Will the physio know if I haven’t done my exercises?’ and ‘Why are my orthotics SO expensive!?). Our professionals will provide reviews and information on products which will enhance your health and our dietitian will be providing information and recipes which can whip up quickly at home. We will also be providing details about any specials and offers that are currently running at the clinic.

I hope that you will find this blog useful and I look forward to seeing you in the clinic soon. If you’re after more regular inspiration from Connective Healthcare you can like us on Facebook or follow us on Instagram.
