2021 has arrived, and we breathe a small sigh of relief with the easing of restrictions in Victoria.
Some updates at our centre:
- We ask that when you enter our building, you continue to sanitise or wash your hands.
- Despite masks not being mandatory at this time, we prefer you still to wear one. We ask you to make an informed decision and be respectful of the health of our practitioners and reception staff, when you enter our centre.
