Two Important Notices Updated: June 2020
After 19 years in clinic, I’ve decided to take a sabbatical (time away from full-time clinic. But rest assured I will be back).
I am not taking new clients.
However, I will be working alternate Saturday mornings only. Spaces are very limited with a 3 - 6 week waiting list.
As of Wednesday 17 June New Zealand will be at level 1: click here for more details.
What does this mean for this clinic?
Prior to your appointment:
- Your contact details will be updated.
- The day prior to your appointment you'll be asked 4 questions to determine whether it is safe to treat you (this will be sent via email with a reminder text).
- Upon arrival at the clinic please sanitize your hands (gel supplied)
- I will adhere to the usual strict hygiene:
- washing my hands.
- use hand sanitizer.
- disinfect all contact surfaces before and after.
- the table will be single towel (used once then soaked in janola: clean towel for each client, including pillow-case).
- alcohol swabbing of Acupuncture point locations.
Another difference will be:
- I am reducing physical contact: Chinese massage/gentle manipulation techniques will be a minimal part of the treatment at level 1.
- At level 1: acupuncture, moxa, heat-lamp, stationary cupping, and electro-acupuncture will still be available for use as treatment (including tongue and pulse diagnosis).
General and COVID-19 hygiene protocols:
Thank you for your patience.
Kind Regards, Philip
