Welcome to the Dunalley Tasman Community website,
run by the Dunalley Tasman Neighbourhood House team.
WELCOME to the Dunalley Tasman Community webpage!
Autumn has arrived – leaves changing colour, cooler nights and crisp mornings. If you thought this meant things would be slowing down here – think again! We say every season how full our Program is, but this one is bursting!!
There are excursions for all ages, cooking, arts & crafts and movies as well as the regular health professionals, circuit classes and groups that meet in either House.
Look out for the gold coloured newsletter in the usual spots (shops, service stations and at the Houses), download and read it from the ‘Current Activities’ Tab or have it emailed to you via our weekly enews.
PLEASE NOTE OUR DUNALLEY OFFICE WILL BE CLOSED MONDAY 10TH MARCH DUE TO LABOUR DAY PUBLIC HOLIDAY.

Ortho-Bionomy is a gentle, effective bodywork used to relieve pain and restriction associated with injuries, postural imbalances, illness & stress related symptoms. During a session the practitioner uses comfortable positioning and light touch to support your body’s natural ability to self correct. Ortho-Bionomy is safe for all ages, from new born infants to elderly. Throughout the session the client remains fully clothed.
Julie Luckman is a Registered Ortho-Bionomy Practitioner. Julie moved back to Tasmania in 2013 and is now based in Dodges Ferry working at Down to Earth Therapies Centre. She would like to offer the benefits of Ortho-Bionomy to the wider and more remote communities, so is delighted to be able to be at Dunalley House every second Monday.
Osteopathy with Matt Blackburn
Matt will be taking over from Chando, starting
Friday 21st March
$90 for initial session and/or per hour / $75 per 45mins
(can be claimed with approp health insurance)
As this month will be Matt’s first, here is some info on him:
My name is Matt Blackburn. I have worked as an Osteopath for three years in Hobart. I am now at Connections Health in Warwick St West Hobart.
I specialise in treating all musculo-skeletal problems, such as lower back pain, neck pain and headaches, shoulder pain, knee and hip pain. I have worked with people of all ages from children to the elderly. I am particularly interested in working with the elderly and believe that Osteopathy is particularly suited to them.
I like to give appropriate exercises and stretching so that patients can help themselves improve and manage their conditions.
My approach is gentle and I rarely do manipulations. I use mostly soft tissue, articulation, myofascial release and osteopathic cranial techniques.
I am interested in treating chronic problems such as Fibromyalgia and Rheumatoid arthritis.
If you have private health insurance I can give you a receipt for claiming the rebate. I can also take Medicare referrals under an EPC scheme. This requires GP referral and covers $52 of the cost of five treatments in a year.

Or just pop in!
Don’t forget that we also offer:
Dunalley Tasman Neighbourhood House Revegetation and Garden Restoration Program
During the recent bush fires, many in our community lost their beloved gardens, orchards, garden sheds and tools. We are facilitating a garden restoration program to assist the community to get their gardens back on track. We will of course be heavily reliant on donations and volunteer labour.
For information on the Program and how to get involved, how to register for assistance, or to be a volunteer or make donations, please click on the link under Current Activities Program or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
