About Us

The Melbourne Therapy Centre

The Melbourne Therapy Centre is a centre of integration for complementary medicine and therapies that promote healing of the body, mind and soul.

The Centre was founded in 1986 to provide therapies for people looking for alternative health modalities. The therapies are based upon the anthroposophic medical indications proposed in Switzerland by Dr. Rudolf Steiner (Ph.D. 1861-1925) and developed by Dr. Ita Wegman (Dutch Physician 1876-1943). Our medical practitioners integrate complementary medicine with conventional medical practice.

Introducing the Centre – Looking towards a Clinic

Passage from an article written by Maxine Hewitt in the original 1982 newsletter

“As I walk to a more open part of the Clinic I see a patient at painting class and somewhere close by others are making music together. In the kitchen, two patients, who are almost ready for home, assist in the preparation of their own meal. In a small court yard, warm, quiet and secure, a patient has only recently gained some strength, sits and reads a book taken from the Clinic’s reading room. Here and there in the grounds, staff, patients and family members tend the garden unhurriedly. Down the drive I see a small group of young children, coming to bring live music to the Clinic.

In a small self-contained flat, a patient’s family at the end of a short stay, gather up their belongings and wait for the family member who is consulting with a doctor in the working part of the Clinic.

I can tell that the Clinic provides a sharing between staff at every level, patients, their families and friends. Patients can approach their illness in their own way with the support of expert and loving care. Many will come and go from here during their years of illness, thinking of the Clinic as a source of help when it is needed”
