Dear Valued Client,
We have great news to share! In Stride Health Clinic, based inside the Ascot Vale Leisure Centre, is fully opened six days a week again following restricted access during the period that AVLC was closed by Government order due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In even better news, all of our wonderful practitioners are either back or will be back in the next couple of weeks so bookings can be made. That means we have hands on physiotherapy (including women's health physiotherapy), podiatry, myotherapy, remedial massage and our dietitian working from our clinic at AVLC. We are now also allowed, in addition to our individual consultations, to offer small group clinical pilates rehabilitation classes again from our pilates studio at Shop 2/100 Union Road – so we have moved out the pop up treatment area to create the normal studio space.
Despite restrictions easing, your continued safety is the highest priority to us. We have done much planning to ensure we are COVIDSafe. As such, we are continuing with additional deep cleaning, stringent infection control and hand hygiene practices, health and contact screening of clients prior to attendance, social distancing, and limited numbers within our two spaces. We have altered our diary/rosters to allow for these essential steps and we thank you for your in helping us keep everybody well. We are committed to still offering telehealth consultations and online pilates classes during this time for those who require or prefer these services.
As restrictions ease further, we will advise on when hydrotherapy, gym based rehabilitation and larger rehabilitation groups (clinical pilates, gym, GLA:D) can resume.
It has been a highly unusual and somewhat challenging time for everybody. Many of you will have been working or exercising in different ways, home schooling or isolating – and in doing so, may not have been able to concentrate on your usual health needs. There is no better time than now to book back in – we have opened up many appointments including out of hours. You can use our online booking system to book yourself or call us on 9372 8091. If you have any queries, please don't hesitate to reach out.
We look forward to seeing you back with us soon. Again we thank all of our wonderful clients for your support, loyalty and flexibility during this time.
Lou and Kath
