The Sacred Heart Mission clinic provides complementary therapies for people who are experiencing homelessness or disadvantage in the City of Port Phillip.

The Hands on Health Clinic is located on the corner of Robe and Grey streets, St Kilda. Open weekdays, it offers a wide range of complementary therapies in a warm and welcoming atmosphere, making it one of our most popular services. The clinic is a model of community development and collaboration, with fully qualified volunteer professionals and students, who operate under full supervision, providing a range of diverse therapies.

The types of services and therapies available* include:

  • Massage, physiotherapy,
  • Chiropractic, osteopathy
  • Myotherapy,  acupuncture
  • Podiatry, optometry and reflexology.

*subject to the availability of practitioners.

Appointments are required and can be arranged over the telephone or in person at the clinic. Consultations are available Monday to Friday (times vary). Because we receive a small amount of government or other funding, we ask for a client contribution of $4, and because there is such a high demand on services there are criteria to help us prioritise appointments.

The clinic is fortunate to have the support of a reliable and welcoming team of volunteer receptionists.
