Therapists & Practitioners unite to volunteer for the Victorian Bush Fire Appeal.

Therapists Unite coordinated by Hands on Health Australia

This blog Therapists Unite coordinated by Hands on Health Australia has been set up as the main information site for all tactile therapists wanting to volunteer for the Victorian Bush Fire Appeal.

Are you a therapist wanting to volunteer at a relief site?

If you are able to offer immediate assistance, then please telephone our registration hotline on 0402 733 443.

Otherwise, please email us at unitedtherapists@gmail.com with ALL of the following information, please include all info as we have streamlined our database to coordinate a streamlined effort:

  • Your Name
  • Your Modality
  • Your Mobile or Best Contact Number
  • Your Email Address
  • What equipment you have, whether that is a massage table, a seated massage chair or both.
  • What region are you able to travel to - Whittlesea, Yea, Alexandra, Gippsland, Healesville, Wesburn, other, or any.
  • What days/times over the next 10 days are you available?

This relief effort is going to last months, please be patient as we process our database and co-ordinate teams so that the effort is widespread and even across the board. We will be setting up long-term clinics.

If you add your name to the volunteer list now this means that you will be on a Hands on Helath Australia Database indefinitly. In the much longer term we will coordinate a Hands on Health Australia "Emergency Response Committee" Placing your name on the volunteer list not only means that you are eager to help out in the short term, but that you will actively support the co-ordination of likewise events in years to come in whatever capacity you can.

Are you a Practitioner/College/Company running your own Bushfire Appeal Fundraiser?

If you are you a practitioner running your own fundraising event please email the details to unitedtherapists@gmail.com so that we can put them on this blog. If you are a volunteer we urge you to contact these fundraisers and support them if we can't utilise you at relief sites on days you have forwarded to us.

Thankyou everyone for your support and expertise, please be patient as we are doing our best to coordinate this in a professional and active, yet deliberate way.

Yours Sincerely,

Hands on Health Australia
