Clinic News

To my dear clients,

I have one open daffodil in my garden, but I am taking that as a sign that Spring is imminent and that it will begin to get warmer soon! To celebrate my optimism and to kick off the Spring cleaning I have a promotional offer for you and your mates.

$10 off your next 60 minute massage!

If you refer a friend for a massage and they have their initial consultation appointment with me in September, October or November 2019, your friend will pay $80 instead of the regular $90 fee, and you will receive your next 60 minute massage for $10 off your regular fee (i.e. for $75 or $65 for concession holders). This offer is limited to two new clients per one current client.

Changes To Appointment Reminder Texts

In the last year or so I feel there has been an increase in clients only remembering their appointment when they receive my day-before text message reminder. It is a busy, stimuli dense world we all now inhabit, and I can appreciate the chances of forgetting things has probably increased. However, it is challenging to fill appointments without a few days cancellation notice, and while I have a short-notice cancellation fee policy, I prefer not to have to invoke this (although I do still also have to earn an income). Therefore, for the rest of this year, I am going to cease day-before text message reminders and trial using Cliniko to send emailed appointment reminders in the week before your scheduled appointment. Hopefully, you all check your junk email box regularly. I cannot guarantee the reminder email will not end up there. If I have sent you a hard copy of this communication then you will not receive emailed appointment reminders as I do not have your email address on record.

New Treatment R & D – Volunteers Required

I am designing a new stretch/mobilisation treatment. It is a mixture of guided self-massage and mobilisation exercises, and hands on assisted stretching and dry massage. It will be performed on mats on the floor and draw on mat Pilates techniques, Traditional Thai Massage, and use various pieces of small equipment (foam rollers, massage balls, stretchy therabands etc). This will be a semi-tailored treatment. At this stage I think it will be most appropriate for clients with stiff/tight mid to lower backs, glutes/hips and leg muscles. It is not appropriate for anyone with an acute injury or a subacute injury that can be aggravated easily. I am looking for some clients to assist the fine tuning of the treatment, probably in October and November. It is free of charge, but you need to be available Monday or Thursday afternoons/early evenings or possibly a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. A session will probably require 60 – 90 minutes of your time. Please email me if you are interested.
