Lucia works in North Fitzroy, Melbourne, offering remedial massage, acupuncture and hypnotherapy. For over two decades she has delivered the highest quality care in her industry, with a focus on remedial massage and acupuncture for musculoskeletal issues and anxiety in its broadest terms.

In recent times it has become obvious to Lucia – and to those in her referral network of osteopaths, GPs and others – that the needs of the community are becoming increasingly focused on remedying symptoms of stress and anxiety. In response, Lucia has extended her strong interest in the neuroplasticity of the brain and has acquired hypnotherapy qualifications, building her skills and capacity for innovation in the support and holistic body/mind care of her current and future clientele.

Lucia welcomes clients who seek to discover an improved lifestyle, actively assisting and guiding them in the physical and mental process of lowering stress and achieving calmer lives. For more information on how these services may help you please read on …

  • Hypnotherapy

    Hypnosis can help with panic, anxiety states, fears and phobias, weight issues, smoking cessation and sleep disorders. It can assist with relaxation, pain management, improvement of gut conditions (e.g. irritable bowel syndrome) and with motivation to change habits and enhance sports performance. If you’re unsure if hypnosis could help with your particular situation, please email or call to discuss.

    What to expect in your session

    Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state of mind which we all experience during the course of a day. Do you remember the last time you simply stared off into the distance and ‘daydreamed’? In a clinical setting, you are guided into the hypnotic state by the therapist, to make changes via the inner subconscious mind. You are always in control of what happens within your own session – the therapist is simply a guide.

    In a typical session, Lucia gets to know you first through a detailed interview consultation and then, if appropriate, hypnosis. Lucia will guide you into a pleasant state of relaxation where your critical/analytical mind will be asked to have a rest, take a back seat and allow your unconscious/subconscious mind to listen.

    Email and telephone support is offered before and after the consultation and hypnosis treatments if needed. Please email Lucia with your contact information and with any questions before making an appointment.

    As a member and assistant Registrar of the AACHP (Australian Association of Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy) Lucia is required to have a supervisor and is held to the high standards and ethics of the Association.

    Initial consultations are 90 minutes.

    Allow one hour for any follow-up session.

  • Acupuncture

    Starting out in remedial massage over 20 years ago, Lucia’s move into the practice of acupuncture seemed like natural progression. Her focus has been the treatment of pain syndromes and musculoskeletal issues although regular acupuncture has led to many other health benefits for her clients.

    Treatments vary depending on presentation. Lucia’s expertise lies in soft tissue complaints but is not limited to this area. Acupuncture is widely used for many ailments and issues. If a client should need another expert in a certain area (such as fertility or long-term gastrointestinal issues), Lucia will often refer on to the appropriate person/clinic.

    Lucia is a Registered Acupuncturist with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and has full membership with the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA).

    Rebates may be claimed if you have acupuncture listed on your private health insurance.

  • Massage

    Remedial massage is a style of deep tissue (connective tissue) therapy that focuses on restoring the body’s own healthy functioning to the best of its ability. Lucia’s focus, as in all her therapies, is to assist people to reach full physical potential. Regardless of what you do in your daily life, Lucia will guide you through any lifestyle changes that may necessary to assist the body. She has a large and varied referral network of practitioners in order to further assist your needs (if appropriate).

    Lucia maintains an ongoing and loyal clientele who benefit from her experience in soft tissue complaints and general stress-relieving massage style.

    Rebates are available through your medical health insurer if you have remedial massage listed as an ‘extra’.
