After 19 years in clinic, I’ve decided to take up a sabbatical opportunity (time away from full-time clinic from November 2019 to end of April 2020 at this stage: working in clinic one evening a week and alternate Saturday mornings only. Spaces are very limited with a 3 - 5 week waiting list.
- As of Sunday 22nd March my clinic will be closed indefinitely (and will be assessed week by week):
This is because New Zealand is now a level 2 alert for the COVID-19 virus: click here.
Acupuncture alone still requires contact with members of the public, and 99% of the time I have physical contact using Chinese massage/gentle manipulation (TuiNa techniques) which potentially puts you and me at risk during this time of COVID-19.
Anyone who has visited those countries in the previous 14 days who develops symptoms of fever, cough or shortness of breath should seek medical advice by first phoning Healthline’s dedicated COVID-19 number 0800 358 5453 or contacting their GP by phoning ahead of their visit.
Kind Regards Philip
