WA AIDS Complimentary

The Clinical Services Living Well program provides complementary therapies for people living with HIV.  The practitioners who provide these therapies are volunteers, and generously commit their time and expertise to the program.  Available therapies can change from time to time, but you can check what’s currently available by calling reception on 9482 0000.   Therapies available can include Massage, Acupuncture, Reiki and Reflexology.

Current therapies available:

Reflexology

Reflexology involves the application of pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques.

Appointments are currently available
45 minutes sessions, Fridays at 10am, 11am and 12pm with Ross.

Please note, initial sessions will be for an assessment.
If you make a booking, please ensure you have clean feet with unbroken skin.

For the initial intake period you will only be able to make one appointment per month.

Once you have booked yourself into an appointment and cannot attend, please notify us as soon as possible so we are able to fill your spot. All our practitioners kindly volunteer their time. The best way to ensure you always have complimentary therapies at the WA AIDS Council is to support the Living Well program and attend all appointments and sessions that have been booked into.

Join the Living Well team of volunteers

If you are a qualified therapist and are interested in Volunteering for this program, please contact Alli Paterson - 9482 0000, apaterson@waaids.com
