Advanced Recovery Physiotherapy & Acupuncture Clinic
Do I need to do anything to prepare for my appointment?
Generally no, however if receiving acupuncture, it’s best to have a completely empty stomach, or conversely not to just have eaten.
How long will my appointment at the physio and acupuncture clinic take?
The first appointment will typically take longer so please allow approximately 45 minutes for a physiotherapy appointment and one hour for acupuncture treatment in the first session. Follow-up sessions are generally 30 minutes for physiotherapy and up to an hour for acupuncture. Please be aware this does vary based on the condition being treated.
What should I wear for my appointment?
Ideally try to wear something loose that exposes the injured site. Please be aware we may need to expose other areas of the body during treatment. We have shorts and singlets available to wear if necessary.
Is there an ACC surcharge?
We currently have no ACC surcharge for acupuncture and a $20 surcharge for physiotherapy for the initial treatment and $10 for follow-up physiotherapy treatments.
Do I need to see a doctor first?
No, our physiotherapist is able to register a claim with ACC for you.
Does acupuncture therapy hurt?
Acupuncture is generally not painful. However, you do feel some sensation during the needling. You should not feel any sharp sensation when the needle is inserted and when the needle hits the point there is an achy, distending or travelling sensation.
Advanced Recovery Physiotherapy & Acupuncture Clinic is in Auckland. Is there parking on site?
Yes. We have parking in front of the clinic. Our parks are directly outside the front door of the clinic and the next park on the right. Please do not park two parks over to the right as this park belongs to the Hospice Shop.
