Lovely staff, amazing service... Beautiful Molly the dog sometimes greets you at reception with her big, bright eyes and calm and peaceful quiet nature.
I was carrying around chronic pain that I thought I would never get rid of. I’m managing to stay pain-free through the week now and I’m over the moon!
I am amazed and awe struck at how massages can be deeply intuitive, powerful and effective.
- S.A.
I felt safe, heard, validated and a little less alone.
Truly the best therapeutic and deep relaxation massage I have had. Highly recommended!
Fantastic practitioners. Gorgeous rooms. Owned & operated by a locally-living Goddess of sorts. This place is a real wellness centre!
Everyone who works here is full of knowledge and I love the happy vibes.
Hands down the best massage I’ve ever had. Have already booked in for my next one.

Our Deal of The Century for Neck and Shoulder Pain

Hey there, we’re Lauren and Tracy from The Urban Alchemist in North Carlton.

We’ve been helping people with frustrating, niggling neck and shoulder pain to feel better for more than ten years.

People with every-damn-day pain – the kind of pain doesn’t let up. The pain that stops you from concentrating on your job and makes you act like a jerk at home.

Ya know it?

Or maybe your family knows it. 😏

It’s kinda funny til it’s not funny any more.

You see, we’ve both been in your shoes.

In our spare time, one of us loves hitting the gym and the other loves going to gigs and dancing her ass off.

Can’t do that stuff with neck pain.

And we’ve both suffered.

It SUCKS, we know.

So we’re both super passionate about getting to the root of your pain, and helping you find a long-term solution.

One that really works.

If you’re looking for a quick fix, that’s not us.

Take a Panadol, seriously. It’s cheap and it’ll sort you out.

For today, at least.

But if you’re sick of feeling like A$$ and you’re ready for REAL change?

Keep reading, cos we’ve got you covered.

We want you to spring out of bed every morning ready to take on the day. Refreshed after a good 8 hours of awesome sleep. Body feeling freakin’ tip top. Hands up over your head, washing your hair in the shower like it ain’t no thang.

You’ll probably be singing James Brown, dancing around your kitchen feeling like you’re 16.

OMG, this sounds too good to be true.

Except it’s not.

Why we’re different from what you’ve tried before

The Urban Alchemist is a holistic wellness practice, which means we have loads of fantastic therapists in one place, and we work together to give you the best solution to your problem.

When you schedule to see us for your neck pain, we’ll get you to the right person who will know exactly what to do.

We see it so often – people who are great at whatever it is they do in the world, but don’t have the first clue about where to start with neck pain. They go to the GP, or the massage therapist, or the physio or whatever… and 6 weeks later, they’re frustrated and a bit poorer but they’re still in pain.

We hate this.

Let us help you get to the right therapist.

It doesn’t have to be this hard.

If we can’t help you, we’ll find someone who can.

So you can get back to living your best life, doing normal person things like the gym and dancing, and – ya know – turning your head in both directions, and so on.

Let us help you feel better.
