Covid-19 (Coronavirus) updates

We hope that you and your family are safe and healthy

during this challenging time.


Monday – 6th April, 2020

At 7:30am this morning, we published this week’s blog article –

Blog#18  –  Coronavirus and Self Care … by Tony

In this article you can read about some strategies to help care for yourself while living with the current Social Distancing & Isolation restrictions imposed to ‘flatten the curve’ of infections across our country.

We understand that everyone is most likely frustrated with all the restrictions placed on our wider community at present … some sectors in our community are over-worked right now, while many others are lost with nothing to do because of Social Distancing and Isolation restrictions … but you still need to look after yourself so you are ready for the other side when all the panic is over.

Clinic continues to fall into the ‘non-essential services’ category and will remain closed for very likely the next few months, but this weeks blog will help guide you towards practices you can do for yourself – at home – to help support & boost your own Immune System … the most important ‘Front Line of Defence’ for each & every one of us.

If you would like further guidance – and/or clarification for anything connected with how Clinic is dealing with – or affected by – Covid-19, please watch this space or reach out to us through our social media platforms … Please remember that our telephone and email are not monitored everyday while clinic is closed.

We continue to apologise for any disappointment the closure of clinic might cause you … Please know that we are doing our best to open again, and we will the moment it is safe to do so.

Kind regards,
Tony, Kat, Jacob, Kate, Tash & Alison.

Wednesday – 1st April, 2020

At around 8am this morning, members of Massage & Myotherapy Australia (our Industry Professional Association) received an email confirming where Remedial Massage lies with relation to ‘essential services’ and the impact of Covid-19 in Australia.

“As of Tuesday 31st March, we have been advised that massage is considered a non-essential services in Queensland, the Northern Territory and Victoria, and therefore remedial massage therapists in those states should cease face to face practice immediately. Victoria has advised that it considers myotherapy a non-essential service and therefore myotherapists in Victoria should also cease face to face practice immediately.”

We were also urged – “Until absolute clarity can be demonstrated such as in Queensland and Victoria please co-operate with any instructions from Police and do not put your business or self at further risk.” … and so this information confirms that the decision we made to close clinic last week was the correct and socially moral thing to do at this time.

As a Team – we are all very keen to return to clinic and resume treating, but unfortunately there seems to be no recognised time-line yet allowing us to do that. Updates will continue here – and on our Social Media platforms – so that we can let you know as soon as we know when we can re-open. This is a challenging time for everyone, and we thank you all – very much – for your understanding and continued support.



Thursday – 26th March, 2020

In accordance with the Prime Minister’s Press Release from Tuesday 24th March, our clinic will close until such time as it is safe for us to re-open. We are hoping to re-open as soon as possible but will need to be guided by any future developments concerning the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and any implications regarding social distancing connected to potential infection.

We apologise for any disappointment this closure might cause you … Please know that we are doing our best to open again, and we will the moment it is safe to do so.

All the best,
Tony, Kat, Jacob, Kate, Tash & Alison.
