Meet The Team

Nick Moss - Director and Principal Practitioner

Nick is one of Australia's most innovative health and Fitness practitioners and educators. After his time as a soldier in the Australian Army, Nick developed a keen interest in high performance and rehabilitation. From there he studied Personal Training, Kinesiology, Mind-Body Medicine and Integrative Medicine which equipped him to deal with the types of complex issues clients were presenting with. He became a lecturer in those modalities for the College of Complementary Medicine and has written courses in the field of Sports Therapy Kinesiology, Corrective Exercise and Manual Therapy. Nick is continuously studying the human brain and nervous system. Most recently Applied and Functional Neurology and a Bachelor in Myotherapy.

Nick has a holistic but targeted approach to understanding human physiology at a very deep level. Nick's clients have typically been to see a range of other practitioners with minimal results and require a different approach. 

In addition to developing Functional Neuro Health as a premier brain-based therapy service and education provider, Nick has another business called Integrated Vitality which is a holistic health education provider that educates people in online courses, face to face seminars and holistic health retreats based on Integrative Medicine and Neuroscience.

Nick is a keen reader and outdoors person, always moving and training, developing himself personally, professionally, and athletically. Nick's partner and daughter are the true loves of his life and he enjoys going on adventures in nature with them, living the healthiest life they can.
