The Soaring Health story isn’t really about ‘us’ – it’s about our clients. In fact, our practice began in 2012 when senior chiropractor and lifelong sports enthusiast Dr Marco Makari – who already had an esteemed reputation among elite athletes – thought there must be more he could do to help athletes at all levels to achieve their performance dreams. Enter the Soaring Health Method, which translated Dr Makari’s understanding of the physical and mental challenges of elite training, anatomy knowledge and experience optimising athlete performance into a unique formula.
From Sports to Community
Since then, the vision of helping people to realise their potential has expanded to encompass diverse services and client groups, from NDIS participants with severe disabilities to TAC claimants recovering from life-altering accidents. Led by highly-trained, human-centred physiotherapists, chiropractors, occupational therapists, psychologists and dietitians, the Soaring Health ‘Community’ division continues Soaring Health’s commitment to helping people to harness their strengths and live their best, most satisfying lives despite their limitations.
Given our emphasis on proactive wellbeing, Soaring Health’s wellness division seemed like a natural progression. After all, the proactive wellness paradigm that has made practices such as yoga and Pilates staples of healthy people’s self-care regimes perfectly reflects Soaring Health’s credo. From wholefood diets to stress-management strategies, practitioners including dietitians, psychologists and clinical Pilates physios will help you to take care of you and your family’s body, mind and soul.
What sets Soaring Health practitioners apart is that they are not merely performing treatments, but serving as partners, who empower clients to challenge their limitations. Whether you are an aspiring Olympian seeking an extra 0.2 of a second, dreaming of independence after injury or disability, or wish to resolve chronic pain and travel the world, we will meet you where you are and support you to live a rich, satisfying life as the best you can be.
The Soaring Health logo
The Soaring Health logo represents your journey towards realising what it is to feel and be your best. The adjoined triangles depict the interdependent elements that enable a person to realise their physical and mental potential. The eagle in flight depicts your power to reach new heights and to believe that you can rise above your limitations. Each time you see the logo, ask yourself, “What can I do at this moment to enrich my own life and the lives of those around me?”
Shapes and Colours
The angles in each triangle represent the three core values underpinning everything we at Soaring Health believe and do – Family, Integrity and Extraordinary service.
The colours of the triangles represent the 3 types of services we offer.
Green: Community is the centre triangle because community is at the heart and soul of what we do at Soaring Health.
Blue: The Blue wing triangles represent our sport services which elevate an athlete as wings do to an eagle.
Purple: Our purple foundational triangles are the core of the eagle, just as wellness is the core of our clients health and wellness.
