A Message From Jo
Wow, what an epic start to 2020! I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of my wonderful clients for all the kind words and support over the last few months. It means so much as a small business to have you all back and taking care of yourselves. You all deserve it!
And to new clients, I wish you a warm welcome. I look forward to treating you and getting to know your body in order to get you back on track to being pain free.
~ Jo, Remedial Massage Therapist
Changes to Billing
We all know that times have been difficult recently and for your continued support, we cannot thank you enough. A business is nothing without the community that supports them. That being said, the end of the financial year is fast approaching and with it, an increase in our rent. We’ve held off as long as we could and these changes still won’t happen until July 1st, but we wanted to give everybody a little heads up.
The changes are as follows:
There will be a $10 increase for all massage times up until 90 minutes. The new prices are:
- 30 min – $55
- 45 min – $70
- 60 min – $85
- 90 min – $120 (will remain the same, as mentioned)
Dietitian, Exercise Physiology, and Physiotherapy
These appointments will remain at $85 for an initial consultation and $65 for subsequent for all private clients. For those referred by their GP with a chronic disease management plan, the consultations will be $65 and after subtracting what Medicare will pay, clients will be out of pocket $11.20. Please note: this is at each clinicians discretion and all discussions of bulk billing must be conducted with with the clinician. The decision to be bulk billed or discounted will be made on a case-by-case basis and is dependant on personal circumstance.
We will, however, continue to bulk bill pensioners and HCC holders, those under the age of 16, DVA, and Workcover.
There will be a slight increase for group exercise classes. Each class will now be $15 or you can purchase a 10 visit class pass for $120.
