I am open again with level 2 protocols in place.
If you have any symptoms like a runny nose, sore throat, cough or no sense of smell or taste, please don’t make an appointment until you’ve been tested for COVID-19. If you develop symptoms between making an appointment and that appointment occurring, please cancel. It’s important to keep everyone safe.
Online bookings are open again but due to demand, I will only be seeing people I’ve seen before until at least June.
Level 2 protocols:
To avoid extra people in the waiting room, please stay outside until close to your appointment time.
You will need to sign in and out of the town hall and use hand sanitiser on arrival.
I will be wearing a face mask.
Appointments will still be about 30 minutes – I am allowing extra time between people to clean.
If you have an injury, back or neck pain, headaches, Michaela can help restore you to health.
Osteopaths work with their hands using a wide variety of treatment techniques. These may include soft tissue techniques, rhythmic passive joint mobilisation or the high velocity thrust techniques designed to improve mobility and the range of movement of a joint. Gentle release techniques are widely used, particularly when treating children or elderly patients. This allows the body to return to efficient normal function
Whilst back pain is the most common problem seen, osteopathy can help with a wide range of problems including changes to posture in pregnancy, babies with colic or sleeplessness, repetitive strain injury, postural problems caused by driving or work strain, children with glue ear, the pain of arthritis and sports injuries among many others.
Osteopathic treatment can be used in conjunction with your normal medication and can be adapted to treat any age or condition.
This is a registered osteopathic practice and I am a member of the Osteopathic Council New Zealand and Osteopaths New Zealand.
