The Athlete Sanctuary is a haven

for sporting enthusiasts or active people who love
to get the most of themselves and out of life.

How Are We Different?

Our philosophy and objective is simple- we want to help you to be the best version of yourself you possibly can be in your chosen sport, and most importantly in life.

The Athlete Sanctuary is a naturopathy clinic located in Ballarat, Torquay and  in the Melbourne suburb of Carlton in Victoria.  Many patients find our services useful when used in conjunction with sports medicine  or your general practitioner (G.P) and other allied health modalites such as osteopathy, chiropractic care, myotherapy,  physiotherapy, massage,  podiatry, kinesiology and strength and conditioning. Our comprehensive holistic approach to healthcare targets underperforming systems of the body and helps to  restore balance so the body can perform at its best. We place an emphasis on identifying the underlying cause of ill health or underperformance in athletes by drawing on the latest scientific research, examinations, pathology tests and investigations under a clinical naturopathy framework.

This allows us to understand how your unique genetic make-up, lifestyle, sporting demands and health history has impacted on your current health status or sports performance.

We care for people of all ages and abilities with a wide-range of health challenges. Some of the more common issues we address include fatigue, anaemia, weight management, chronic injuries, poor recovery, anxiety and stress, insomnia, hormonal issues, infertility, immune and digestive complaints. Our nutritional advice is tailored to meet the demands of training, competition and recovery for athletes and general illness prevention and recovery.

We provide a treatment plan that is tailored to each individual. Our treatment recommendations and medicines are TGA approved,  contain the highest quality ingredients, and undergo rigorous quality control manufacturing. We help you understand what is going on in your body and the steps required to obtain optimal health and performance in a supportive environment. By working collaboratively with other medical specialists and sports practitioners we aim to obtain the best outcomes possible.

Our practitioners hold the highest naturopathy qualification available in Australia and undertake ongoing training to ensure the knowledge we share is at the pinnacle of the natural medicine industry.
