We have a team of four therapists offering a variety of styles to choose from for your treatment. We believe the client’s needs are most important and we will endeavour to place you with the therapist that best gives you what you need. If this does not happen, please let us know and we can place you with another therapist. Our clinic has multiple rooms with soundproofing throughout to create a private and confidential space in which to work.
