General Customer Service Information
The greatest possible care and the best possible environment
If you require a course of treatments it is advisable to pre-book a few ahead. As our office gets busy at times it will ensure you secure the time most beneficial to you. If you need to change an appointment time, to keep your progress on schedule, please reschedule within the same week if possible. Please note you can call at any time and leave a message.
We are always glad to speak to your local community, club or workplace about relevant health topics at no charge.
So that we can provide the best possible care and the best possible environment, we encourage your feedback. Please either email, call us, or post on our website if you would prefer to remain anonymous.
