We are the largest holistic health centre in Victoria offering a wide range of both traditional and complementary healing modalities. Clients can choose – often in consultation with a practitioner – which therapies can best assist them in their healing and growth at each stage in their life.
Client responsibility for their own health is also an integral part of the healing process. All practitioners share the same holistic healing philosophy and meet regularly to discuss issues relating to clients’ illnesses, therapeutic modalities and their place in the treatment of specific illnesses.
The Centre was founded in 1996 by Dr Anne Small whose Chronic Fatigue Syndrome was cured by a combination of complementary therapies and her own personal and spiritual growth.
The Centre and its practitioners are continually growing and evolving to meet their own needs, the needs of clients and the needs of the environment.
Dr Anne Small
Dr Anne Small is very experienced in diagnosing physical and emotional illnesses after having graduated in 1973 and gaining extensive experience working in centres including the Kensington Community Health Centre, The Royal Children’s Hospital and the Aboriginal Health Service.
She will perform the necessary physical examination and testing, and work with the client to develop a holistic management plan.
Dr Small founded the Moonee Ponds MindBody Health Centre in 1996 and has worked with many different complementary practitioners over this time. As such, she has an excellent knowledge of how the different therapies can assist individual clients at different stages of their healing journey.
She recognises the side effects caused by many Western drug treatments, therefore non-pharmaceutical approaches are often favoured and referrals may be made to other practitioners at the Centre for natural healing remedies. She also specialises in prescribing bio identical hormones where the client has a hormone deficiency.
