We are now able to see patients for face to face appointments in the clinic.
The Physiotherapy Board and Ministry of Health have updated their guidelines for Allied Health providers.
Although this does not mean ‘business as usual’ for physiotherapy clinics, it does mean some face to face appointments are able to proceed.
Our physiotherapists can provide an initial Telehealth appointment with no surcharge. If you are urgently needing to be seen please call our reception staff as our online bookings are currently all on Telehealth. We are guided by Ministry of Health criteria, with a thorough risk assessment process to ensure your and our clinicans' safety.
The usual surcharge will apply for any face to face appointments.
All Staff at the clinic have been fully vaccinated and we have robust cleaning and infection control procedures in place.
For an appointment with our massage therapist, you will need to show your vaccine passport as per regulations.
So how does this Telehealth thing work?
There is a lot your physio is able to assess via a secure webcam meeting – either on Zoom or possibly a different platform. They can advise you on how to deal with an existing or new injury and then send you exercises to do at home. We are not charging a surcharge for this service.

Radial shock waves are acoustic waves introduced into the body by means of a transmitter and handpiece. These waves move through the body in outward motion from the point of contact. The point of contact will be moved throughout your treatment to cover the entire pain region. Radial shockwaves are often referred to as radial pressure waves, which is the correct definition in physical terms because it best describes how the waveform moves through the body. When introduced into the tissue, shock waves and pressure waves have effects on a cellular level that are beneficial for healing. Increased blood flow2 and formation of new blood vessels3,4 create an improved environment for tissue repair. It has further been shown that application of shock waves influences the body’s pain regulating mechanisms resulting in local pain relief.

This is different to providing massage alone. Certified Lymphoedema therapists are trained to assess the body site that has the issue and to identify other factors that may be contributing to your lymphoedema. This includes incorporating self-management strategies such as exercise, skin care, and what type of compression would best suit the affected area, we can also refer to nutritionists and counsellors to help you regain control and make lifestyle changes. We assist you in preventing and managing exacerbations, along with communicating with the other members of your health care team, including your GP, nurse specialist, oncologist, and surgeon to ensure your treatment is both safe and effective.
