We will be returning to the new normal on Thursday 14th May.
Under Level 2 we will be following safe practice recommendations set out by the Ministry of Health.
Screening for COVID-19 symptoms prior to treatment. If you or any of your close contacts are sick, STAY HOME-GET TESTED.
Physical distancing practices- Restricting use of waiting areas- Anyone accompanying you to a treatment is to wait in the car- Minimizing close contact.
Infection prevention measures- Hand Hygiene- Practice cleanliness- PPE where required
Attention must be paid to minimizing any possibility of transmission and to contract tracing details of clients. If your contact details have changed recently. please update these at your next appointment.
Thank you for your patience over the last few weeks, I know for many it has been frustrating not to be able to have treatment during level 3!
I'm looking forward to seeing you soon!
BSc (Hons) Ost
Registered Osteopath NZRO
Registered ACC Treatment Provider.
I trained at the UK's leading osteopathic college The British School of Osteopathy graduating in 2000. Through this education I gained a strong grounding in clinical reasoning and differential diagnosis. This means as a primary health worker I am qualified to assess, diagnose and treat your condition. Should something more serious be suspected I can refer you for X-Ray, Ultrasound imaging or to the appropriate practitioner, .
Over the last 20 years I have developed my private practice as well as spending 6 years lecturing on the Master of Osteopathy course at Unitec, progressing to the role of external examiner.
For the last 12 years I have undertaken post graduate training in Cranial Osteopathy. I have also developed a strong yoga practice which has supported and enhanced my knowledge of posture and exercise.
I have had extensive experience treating a variety of conditions : from helping in rehabilitation after severe spinal injury, sports injury, to the more day to day aches and sprains of every day life. I also work with clients through their pregnancy and after birth, and provide treatment for babies and children.
I fell in love with the Matakana Coast and moved here 10 years ago. I began working from my home in Matheson's Bay initially and more recently from BodyRe in Matakana.
I am a registered ACC treatment provider. There is no need for you to visit your GP first, we can complete all necessary paper work during your consultation.
