The Athlete Sanctuary is a haven

for  active people who want to get the most of themselves and out of life.

How Are We Different?

The Athlete Sanctuary provides integrated healthcare online and from three locations Ballarat, Torquay and Carlton in Victoria.   Our  approach  aims to target 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 imbalance or underperformance by drawing on the latest scientific research, examinations, pathology tests and investigations under a clinical naturopathy framework.

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. We synergistically work with other medical practitioners, sports practitioners,  coaches and physical therapists to obtain positive outcomes.

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.
