At Karingal Green, we work hard to create an environment where an individual’s health and wellbeing is prioritised in every way possible. Our luxurious wellness centre is one way we achieve this, not only for our residents but for the wider community as well.
Life is better when we can relax, enjoy social interaction and schedule some ‘me’ time, and this additional service is the ideal place to achieve all of these goals as well as helping mind, body and soul. Open to residents and to the wider community at an added cost, our activities include physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, exercise classes, massage therapy and podiatry, all under one roof!
The wellness centre encourages participation by gaining insight into your preferences and likes. Working with our team of trained professionals, we will tailor classes, whether you want an individual assessment, looking to join a group class or are keen to come by weekly or monthly; we have many programs available to suit.
Here are five reasons why you or your loved one should book into our wellness centre and improve your health and healing.
- Thorough evaluation and specialised care
Our wellness centre provides the opportunity to work alongside our trained professionals so you know you’re in the best hands possible. You will receive a thorough evaluation from our specialised staff, which helps us create a specialised program and approach, whether it’s helping with the healing process from an injury or simply finding more ways to be active. Packages are designed to improve muscular strength, bone integrity, mobility, and balance. Your package may include private physiotherapy sessions, group exercise classes, massages, use of the hydrotherapy pool, access to speciality gym equipment and more.
- Heated Hydrotherapy Pool
Heated to 28 to 32 degrees all year around, our hydrotherapy pool offers several health benefits and opportunities to suit any of your needs.The warm water works by being an easy and relaxing way for residents to treat arthritis, rheumatism, poor circulation and sore muscles, while our team will come up with specialised exercises to suit your individual needs while increasing fitness and balance. With group and individual classes, this is a fantastic opportunity to meet new people or simply relax.
3. Remedial Massage Therapy
Remedial massage is a supplementary therapy which seeks to enhance a person’s overall health and wellbeing. The method is all-encompassing and considers the entire history of your medical background, working to ease conditions such as acute chronic pain, headaches, back pain and joint pain. Your therapist will customise a treatment to meet your specific needs with a variety of techniques including deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, lymphatic drainage, and relaxation treatments. With 30-, 60- and 90-minute treatments available, there is something for all time frames and conditions.
4. Parrafin Wax Therapy
Parrafin Wax Therapy is a therapeutic procedure that effectively uses heat to promote blood flow, ease tension in the hands, relax sore and tired muscles and reduce stiffness. In addition to providing pain relief and retaining mobility in arthritic and stiff hands, wax treatment helps retain moisture in the skin and promotes soft and smooth results. Our therapists at Karingal Green will help you dip your hands in the wax until it thickens, wrap your hands for 10 to 15 minutes and finish with some therapeutic hand exercises. Now that is a special experience to add to the list!
5. Exercise Classes
When joining exercise classes at Karingal Green, you will be getting involved with a lively community which supports each other’s fitness goals. By participating in regular exercise classes with our physiotherapists, you’re taking active steps to improve your overall wellbeing while focusing on areas for improvement, whether sore joints or injury recovery. Regular sessions may also reduce heart-related issues as moving slowly enhances blood flow, while strengthening your core. It’s a fantastic way to meet new people while trying out some new exercises and perfecting your technique!
