THE LONGEVITY PROJECT™

What does the program include?

Creating the behaviours and lifestyles that sustain long-results results takes time. That’s why we’ve created this program to give you the personalised support and guidance you need to make the changes stick. The program includes:

– 6 months Uncapped Care
– Dedicated Health Coach
– 2hr Initial Consultation
– Collaborative Health Expert Team
– Access to World-Class Technology
– Personalised Plan & Resources

* Payment Plans & Telehealth Available

Yes – this program has been designed with your best interest in mind. Chronic or ongoing health issues take time to solve! Our programs designed based on years of experience working with people and seeing what does (and doesn’t) work.

When you opt-in to our higher level programs, you get the opportunity to add our Sleep Specialist or Dietitian to your personalised health plan for free. This means you get monthly 1:1 support and direct access throughout the 6-month program. When you opt-in for collaborative care, this additional expert will be added to your WhatsApp group – success is a team sport, and we want to give you the best team possible!

One of the most valuable aspects of our Integrative Health Coaching is the concept of “uncapped care”. This means that you will always have direct access and support from your dedicated Health Coach. We use WhatsApp to maintain consistent contact throughout the duration of the program. Once you’ve completed the program, this chat will remain open for any general questions you may have.

Yes – we work with people all across Australia (and occasionally overseas). The flexibility of our program allows us to deliver sessions remotely (via telehealth) and provide ongoing support using WhatsApp. If you do live in Victoria, we do encourage you to come into the clinic for your initial consultation if possible, simply because it’s nice to meet in person!

A health coach is the expert at helping people make positive and sustainable life changes to their health and wellbeing. Most people don’t suffer from a lack of information, they just struggle to apply the information and change their habits. That’s where your coach comes in! Your health coach helps you celebrate wins, problem-solve and navigate challenges and continues to provide the guidance, motivation and accountability you need to create real change.

As you’ve probably unfortunately already experienced, quick-fixes and short-term treatments don’t work in the long-term.

The traditional approach in healthcare is to just manage the symptoms rather than help you solve the root cause of the problem. We’re interested in helping you get results that last, not another bandaid solution. This takes time. One of the biggest advantages of this program is that we can modify or adapt your personalised plan quickly. Rather than waiting until “the next available appointment” to discuss what’s happening.

From pain and struggles to health and performance! At the end of the 6-month program, you can opt to continue on a month-by-month bases or re-sign for another in-depth 6 months of support. We’re interested in helping you unleash your full potential and continue to create new health goals. Most of our clients / patients continue on for 18+ months! Our WhatsApp group will stay open for any general questions.

Currently all initial consultations are run by our Founder and Allied Health Practitioner – Dr Matt Corbin. These appointments run for ~90min and can be done in-clinic or remotely via telehealth if needed. The goal of these consultations is to put together all the pieces of the puzzle and get a complete picture of your health history.

Prior to this consultation you will be asked to fill in a medical history form, this allows us to focus in on specific aspects during the consult and ask appropriate follow-up questions where needed. If you have any additional pieces of information or questions, by all means bring them to your session and Matt is happy to explain and discuss everything with you. By the end of the session, Matt will formulate a personalised plan based on your current situation and your health goals.

You’ll walk away from this session with a clear direction and understanding of what’s going to be done over the next 6+ months. You’ll also probably have a good sense of motivation and optimism about what this year holds for you!

Follow-up sessions are typically ~30mins. Each session is designed to discuss wins, navigate obstacles or challenges and continue to ensure effectiveness and progress of your personalised health plan. If we need to address anything or make changes, we will.

As we’ve mentioned, the traditional healthcare approach is to “wait and see” and react to symptoms. We’re pioneering the shift towards a proactive and preventative healthcare system that empowers individuals, promotes early intervention and improves the quality of life for all Australians.

Our job is to deliver a holistic, science-driven program that promotes self-care, prevention and sustainable lifestyle choices. We’re not here to provide another quick-fix approach that leaves you stuck and frustrated.

OUR MELBOURNE CLINIC

Where is the clinic located?

The clinic address is:

Shop 1/11 Indra Rd, Blackburn South VIC 3130
(You’ll see the sign on the door!)

Typical hours of operation are 7am – 5pm Monday-Friday

However, we are an appointment-only based clinic so please book ahead.

Yes – There is FREE all day parking available right outside the clinic.

As we are a small, appointment-only based clinic we do not currently have a reception area. Please wait outside until your appointment time as we may have a client with us . There is a seat available right out front and we will let you in at your appointment time (or give you a call if we don’t see you!)

BACK PAIN CLINIC

What happens in my first back pain consult?

As part of your initial consultation you’ll be asked to fill in a brief questionnaire PRIOR to attending your session. This saves us time in-person and allows us to focus on assessment. After a 20-30min discussion, diving deep into your back pain history, previous efforts and discussion of symptoms we’ll move onto the assessment.

We’re very conscious that back pain can be quite scary, many people have been avoiding movement for months (or years) before attending our clinic. We do a thorough neurological and orthopaedic screen first, to rule out any potential serious issues. Once we’re confident you’re safe to move – we start our movement screen.

We’re looking to find patterns between your symptoms and movement restrictions to help build a picture that explains why you’re still feeling pain. Our second component of the assessment involves using our world-class AxIT System to find any asymmetries, deficiencies or imbalances in your movements or strength. By combining your case history with movement and strength imbalances we help put the puzzle pieces together and formulate a personalised plan for your back pain recovery.

Please bring comfortable active wear, a water bottle and a towel to your initial appointment. There is movement involved and whilst it’s not “a workout” sometimes it can feel like that if you’ve been inactive for a while!

Also please bring any previous tests or scan results you have access to for us to have a look at.

There is typically no treatment during an initial consultation. This is because you’ve likely already had 100’s of treatments, we are more focused on finding the root cause and providing you with self-management tools so you no longer need to rely on treatment to make it through your week. 

Similar to above, as we are focused on self-care and self-management we rarely manipulate or crack the spine. In follow-up appointments that may involve short periods of treatment, we typically focus on modalities such as cupping, dry-needling, electrotherapy and mobilisation. We find these produce better results with far less risk and post-treatment soreness.

During your first consultation we will highlight the focus areas for you based on your case history and assessment. Many of our back pain clients sign on to our Signature program – Longevity Project™ and we work closely with them for 6-months to help them move more, hurt less and take back control of their health. 

We understand that some patients simply want to touch base every 6-8 weeks. Our follow-up appointments involve a re-assessment and treatment if needed – these are 45min appointments.

How much do appointments cost?

As of March 2024, Initial consultations cost $227.00 for a full 90min assessment. 

Return or follow-up consultations are $117.00 for 45min.

As of March 2024, depending on your specific cover, you can claim your consultation (under Osteopathy) on your Private Health Insurance. Please consult your specific provider to confirm. In order to claim, you will be provided an invoice post-appointment which you can use to simply claim through your provider app. 

Payment for consultations is made online at the point of booking. It is done through our payment provider Stripe. We understand some people are hesitant to pay for an appointment prior to attending, however we’ve noticed that this reduces no-shows or cancellations.

If you are hesitant to pay at the time of booking, we encourage you to book a free 30min call instead. This ensures we are the right fit for you and we can answer any questions you may have.
