A big warm welcome in our Welcome Room!
From here we’ll show you around the clinic as we begin to listen to you about what you are wanting to achieve with your health. You and your practitioner will continue to discuss relevant medical history, complete some testing specific to your health concern and begin to make a plan moving forward with how we can best help you achieve your health goals. We often like to give you 1 – 3 key movements or tools to practice prior to your second appointment, where we build your exercise program and find your moves.
The most common pathway is as follows:
1. First Appointment: Find Your Baseline
2. Exercise Program: Find Your Moves
3. Demo Day: Show Your Moves
4. Progression Session: Grow Your Moves
5. The Harvest: Measure Your Moves
Simply park along either side of Yertchuk Avenue in front of the shops and you’ll see our Tailored Health sign, at number 9.
The street is marked 2 hour parking so if you plan on having lunch after an appointment or sticking around remember to move your car.
In the rare event that car parks in front of the shops are full, there are overflow car parks on Arthur St and further up Yertchuk Ave.
