Norlane Healing Hands Inc

Hands on Health is a complementary health care clinic run by general community and health professional volunteers. We aim to make complementary health therapies accessible to people that would not normally be able to access or afford such services. Also to assist communities to improve the delivery of health and other services to marginalized people, utilizing the resource of community volunteers. Hands on Health assists communities to establish clinics in which volunteers work in particular healing and service professions. Volunteers also work as “welcomers” who are there not only to assist the practitioners but also to provide a network of people to be there for those who are lonely or isolated and may have no one else to be there for them. Hands on Health also provides training for healthworkers in basic myotherapy (massage) in communities where there is no access to this type of care. In this way communities are empowered to care for their own people in a sustainable and affordable way. The work of HOH occurs both in Australia and around the world, we are affiliated with Hands on Health Australia. Volunteers work in communities providing various therapies and services to those who would be otherwise unable to access them. These services include; chiropractic, dentistry, dermatology, general medicine, hairdressing, massage, naturopathy, nursing, physiotherapy, podiatry, psychology and legal advice, just to name a few.
