The Pillars of Health

At Move for Better Health, we understand that optimising your health over the life span can be a complex journey. 

To cut through the complexity, we simplify things to focus on four key areas that form the pillars of health: movement, mental health, nutrition, and sleep.

Each pillar plays a crucial role in maintaining overall well-being and can significantly impact our daily lives. 

Pillars of Health

Movement is essential for promoting physical fitness, reducing the risk of chronic disease, and improving mental health. Regular exercise can increase energy levels, boost mood, and reduce stress and anxiety. Whether you prefer a structured workout routine or to engage in physical activity through leisure pursuits such as hiking or dancing, physical activity is a key component of a healthy lifestyle.  Health professionals like our Physios, Podiatrists, Exercise Physiologists and Exercise Scientists can help you design the best approach to physical activity or to treat problems preventing you from being as physically active as you would like to be.

Mental health is just as important as physical health, and it’s crucial to take steps to maintain and improve our emotional well-being. This can be done through various means, such as therapy, mindfulness practices, or simply engaging in activities that bring joy and relaxation. Our team of mental health professionals is here to help you develop the skills you need to manage stress and anxiety, improve your mood, and boost your overall mental health.

Nutrition is another critical aspect of overall health, and the foods we eat can have a profound impact on our physical and mental well-being. A balanced and nutritious diet can help prevent chronic diseases, boost energy levels, and promote healthy weight management. Our dietitians can help you develop a healthy eating plan that is tailored to your individual needs and goals.

Sleep is an often-overlooked pillar of health, but it plays a vital role in our physical and mental well-being. Adequate sleep is necessary for repairing and restoring the body, improving memory and cognitive function, and reducing stress and anxiety. If you struggle with sleep issues, our Psychologists have extra training that can help you develop healthy sleep habits and improve the quality of your sleep.

It is common for our clients to need help with specific barriers they are facing in one or more of these Pillars of Health, and that is why we have integrated some of the best health professionals teams at our clinics who are experts in Movement, Mental Health, Nutrition and Sleep. 

At Move for Better Health, we believe that a holistic approach to health and wellness is essential, and we’re here to help you navigate the journey.  Whether you’re seeking to improve your physical health, boost your mental well-being, or simply take control of your health, we’re here to support you every step of the way.    

I need help! Who should I see?

Sometimes it is obvious what type of health professional or pillar of health you should start with. If it is painful problem holding you back, you would probably choose to see the Physio or Podiatrist, if it is a mental health concern or a sleep related problem, you would start with the Psychology team, and if your body is generally feeling pretty good and you want to get straight into the gym with us, our Exercise Physiologists are the best place to start.
