At Fluid Health, we understand that the best thing for everyone to do right now is stay at home. We all need to do our bit to reduce the community spread of COVID-19 through optimal hygiene, social distancing and self-isolation.
But we also understand that just because the world stops, doesn’t mean that your pain will. Our goal at this time is to reduce any impact on the healthcare system. Your health and wellbeing has never been more important than right now.
So if you have an injury or chronic condition and you need remedial massage, myotherapy, sports massage, needling, manual lymphatic drainage, cryotherapy and more… We’re here if you need us.
We’re currently still open for now, but we’re taking extra precautions to help protect the community.
We’ve maintained strict hygiene practices as usual, but we’re also taking extra measures to ensure touch-spots are disinfected constantly around the clinic. We’re also open by appointment only in order to reduce foot traffic and maintain appropriate distancing.
We’re asking all clients to either use our hand sanitiser or wash their hands with soap and water upon entering and leaving the clinic.
And, of course, all clients need to stay at home if they’re feeling in any way unwell, or if they’ve returned from overseas in the last 2 weeks, or if they may have been exposed to someone who has the COVID-19 virus.
Your health and wellbeing has never been more important, and we’re here to support you for as long as we can.
Take care, stay strong and safe, and we’ll get through this together.

Our suburb is a vibrant and innovative hub for the fitness community, and Port Melbourne Bay Street‘s Day of Wellness is bringing you an open day of free activities, fitness classes, beauty treatments, recovery sessions and much much more.
On Sunday, March 15, the businesses of Port Melbourne will be opening their doors to showcase what they have to offer.
Fluid Health is joining the fun, and we’re offering 3 free Ice + Breath recovery sessions to introduce you to our Sports Recovery Centre.
Experience a guided breathing session with Jimmy, followed by a 2 minute ice bath, and reap the biohacking benefits with increased immunity, clarity, circulation, recovery and more.
The Port’s Day of Wellness Open Day sessions are free, so get in quick to secure your spot.
What to expect in the Ice + Breath Session
Start the session in the gym, lying a mat, eyes closed, while Jimmy takes you through a guided breathing session. Similar to the Wim Hof breathing techniques or Pranayama yoga breathing, the techniques have been known to increase circulation, aid concentration, assist with fat burning, help regulate body temperatures, and greatly reduce stress.
Follow the breathing session with a 2-3 minute plunge in our ice bath, set to around 9 degrees. The ice water will invigorate you, and can fire up your circulation, ease sore muscles, reduce inflammation, train your vagus nerve to help with stress, and generally make you feel like a badass for getting in an ice bath.
Sessions are free on the open day at 10.30am, 12.30pm and 2.30pm, and run for approximately half an hour.
Bookings are essential. You can register your spot by calling us on 03 99391133 or go click here and choose ‘book a session’ for Sunday 15th of March. Limited spaces available so book now!

Cooked muscles? Short on time? Come and have a dip in our ice bath for only $25.
Here at Fluid Health, we’ve got a range of sports recovery equipment, and you can do a full circuit of our Sports Recovery Centre (ice baths, contrast bath, far infrared sauna, recovery pump boot session and use of active recovery equipment) for only $55.
But if you’re pressed for time, there’s nothing better than a quick jump in the ice bath.
It’s just $25 for a single ice/contrast bath session, it’s the quickest way to get you energized and revitalised. You can choose to have just a quick dunk in the 9 degree water for a few minutes, or cycle through with our contrast protocol. Spend three minutes in the ice bath, three minutes in the hot bath (at a toasty 38 degrees), and repeat a couple of times.
It will only take you fifteen minutes to get your sore muscles cooled down and your circulation to fire up. If you’re a newbie, getting in an ice bath might sound scary at first, but give it a go and we promise you’ll feel fantastic afterwards.
Give us a call on 03 99391133 to book in, we’re open seven days and late nights too. You can book a full recovery session online here.
