VITO Consultation

Introducing my new 'Virtual Integrative Trichology Online' (VITO) service.

For those people who aren't able to take advantage of our full in-clinic consultations, I have an alternative way to access expert advice and recommendations for hair and scalp issues.

The HairPhysio VITO consultation gives me the opportunity to help from any device connected to the internet, anywhere in the world.

Using VITO, I may be able to help you identify, and if possible advise on how to treat your hair or scalp health problems.


I adopt an integrative, functional, and holistic approach to hair and scalp problems.

This means discovering and treating the underlying causes if I can, as well as the immediate appearance and feel of your hair.

The VITO process begins with a health questionnaire.

This is our opportunity to review things like your general health, family history, nutrition, lifestyle, medications, and some other factors that can be relevant to hair and scalp issues.

At this stage, I also ask, if possible, for you to take and send by email clear, well-lit, high-definition photographs of the areas of concern.

If this is 'one spot' in particular or an overall pattern having some idea of the issue photographically allows me to review your hair and scalp.

Take the picture under bright daylight from above, the front, and the sides. If a friend can take the back this is also helpful.

If you've had recent blood tests send these through at the same time. I sometimes can see areas of concern that your GP might regard as 'normal', that may not be 'optimal' for hair growth.

Don't worry if you haven't got blood tests, after the consultation we will, if required, recommend any further tests I'd like to see.

I'll review the images and the questionnaire information and then schedule an appointment online via Skype or Zoom.

At the online consultation I follow up on any areas of your questionnaire we feel we'd like more information.

Consultations last approximately half an hour.

If I've not had a chance to review recent blood tests I will provide you with recommendations for blood tests to complete the picture.

If blood tests are recommended I'll arrange a complimentary appointment to review these prior to making an assessment and recommendations.

The fee for the VITO consultation is $125 and includes reviewing the detailed questionnaire, images, and blood tests, an online hair and scalp assessment, (a follow-up consultation if required to review any blood test results), and a report on the next course of action and recommended treatments.

This may involve further tests, such as for example Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis, that we can organise, or referral to other medical specialists for other testing.

This may involve recommending micronutrient supplements, lifestyle changes, topical treatments, or low-light laser therapy (that you can do at home).

I do not have a one-size-fits-all approach to solutions. Every treatment plan is individual to you.

That's a lot of support for $125, and no obligation to buy anything else.


To enrol for a VITO consultation go to our online booking page and follow the directions.

You will receive a welcome email, with the questionnaire and full details.

Please note.

VITO consultations are by appointment only.

Trichology services can not be claimed against health insurance or Medicare.

The VITO consultation fee must be paid in full prior to the process beginning.

The VITO Consultation cannot provide a diagnosis as you are not coming into the clinic, but it can provide triage support for many hair and scalp issues.
