We are a busy clinic in the rapidly growing Auckland suburb of Hobsonville. Our clinic room is within a bustling, well established Physiotherapy practice and right next to the local GP. Also in the Physiotherapy clinic we have a visiting dietician and sports physician.
Our goal is to provide a place of healing that empowers people to engage in their lives more fully. We aim to provide our clients with honest advice and recommendations in order to achieve overall health through the mechanism of their feet. Our philosophy is to treat everyone as individuals and shape their treatment appropriately. We work closely with other allied medical professionals to ensure the best treatment possible.
