We understand that recovery isn‘t one-size-fits-all. That’s why Recovery Lab dedicates itself to giving everyone the support they need to conquer life’s challenges.

Recovery Lab is a unique lifestyle, health and wellness centre and franchise, which was born from the desire to educate and redefine the way people recover – physically and mentally – from the demands of everyday life and physical training.

Whether you’re looking for relief post-workout, a moment of relaxation after a hectic workday or something to soothe the soul after a big weekend, our wellness studios are here to help you feel your best self.

We understand that a regular self-care ritual is important to supporting both mind and body. That’s why we focus on providing our community members with science-backed services under one comfortable and convenient roof.

By inviting clients into our community and customising their journey with ongoing support, our range of self-care services will help you train harder for longer, reduce injury risk and stress levels, support restful sleep and provide a better sense of wellbeing.

Education is at the heart of everything we do. We want to help everyone understand the brain and body benefits of recovery, so nothing gets in your way to achieve your goals.

Our modalities are carefully curated and proven to recharge fitness enthusiasts, office workers and people who lead busy lifestyles. We want to support you through a regular practice of self-care so that you can build the confidence you need to take on everyday challenges.

Providing a recovery-specific environment with a carefully curated offering of scientifically tested recovery modalities, Recovery Lab’s unique proposition seamlessly bridges both the fitness and wellness industries in Australia – sectors that in 2018/2019 were reportedly generating more than $2.5 billion (Australian Skills and Industry Committee) and $10.6 billion (Mindbody Wellness Index), respectively.

James says:

“I opened the first Recovery Lab in 2019, just months after retiring from my role as Women’s Football Operations Manager at Collingwood Football Club. Soon after, my former colleague Daniel Harford (who is now the Senior Coach at Carlton AFLW), joined me in the business, after being impressed by the business model, company values, and the treatments we offer.”

These treatments that James refers to, are many and varied, and they include:

NuCalm is the world’s first patented neuroscience device that works to reduce stress levels and improve sleep quality without medical aids. Wearing a NuCalm biosignal processing disc, listening to neuroacoustic tracks through noise cancelling headphones and wearing an eyemask will help slow brain wave function to relaxed ranges and suspend the dominance of your parasympathetic nervous system.

Whether you’re preparing for your next athletic event, a long day at the office or a difficult week, NuCalm will help alleviate stress, promote a healthy mind and aid constructive sleep patterns.

Proven Benefits: 

NuCalm facilitates recovery through applied neuropsychobiology and neuroinformatics that mimic the body’s natural process of slowing down brain and body function for sleep.

Proven to support sleep, increase energy levels, and enhance your general performance, NuCalm can completely change your day and night in just 30mins!

Infrared Saunas use heaters to emit a range of warm infrared light absorbed by the skin’s surface. The infrared lamps direct heat to your body for deeper and faster muscle healing by directly penetrating your body.

With maximum comfort and health benefits assured, infrared saunas offer a holistic experience.

Normetic’s Compression Boots use scientifically-backed technology to relieve muscle pain after a session at the gym, an exhausting work week or a full day running errands.

No matter your discipline, capability, or age, the Normatec compression boots offer a restorative massage to ease any muscle strain.

Ice bath therapy is an effective way to speed up the process of recovery for injured or inflamed muscles caused by any intense physical activity. Relax, recharge and unwind in one of our tubs and combat Delayed Onset Muscle Pain (DOMS).

Whether you’re a professional athlete, fitness fanatic, office worker or someone looking for a new method of rehabilitation, Compex’s Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is scientifically designed to accelerate muscle recovery.

Compex EMS is a painless way to flush out unwanted toxins through the muscles’ renewal of blood and nutrients.

Most recently, Damien Bain from Fitness Business Sales, was appointed to the executive team in a fractional consulting role, as Chief Operating Officer. On being tasked to lead the brand into its next stage of growth, operations and scalability across Australia, Bain says:

“Right now, we have five locations operating across Victoria and Queensland, and our goal is to have 20 franchises operating by the end of 2022. My passionate Franchise Sales team at Fitness Business Sales are as excited as I am, to support Recovery Lab in the execution of its site growth plans, so we can all achieve the set objectives.”

“My clients at Fitness Business Sales are typically within the fitness industry, but this fractional role with Recovery Lab was a no-brainer for me, because it has such a natural synergy due to wellness and recovery going hand-in-hand with the needs of the fitness industry.”

“Essentially, if you have a mentally or physically taxing job; or if you’re a fitness fanatic in search of an outlet for muscle recovery; or if you’re in need of rehabilitation from an injury, Recovery Lab will help you feel better, relax, recharge, recover and move closer to achieving optimum performance in your life. And who doesn’t want that?”
