Temporary location during refurbishment closure and Covid-19 information

The Therapy Centre is now closed for its extended refurbishment program. Reopening dates will be posted later in the year.

Entering Optimal Chiropractic for your hypnotherapy appointment after Covid-19

Your hypnotherapy appointment may take place (1) during the Chiropractic Clinic opening hours or (2) when the Chiropractic Clinic is closed to chiropractic patients.

1. During Optimal Chiropractic opening hours

Optimal Chiropractic has the following opening hours:

  • Monday 3pm – 8pm      
  • Tuesday 8am – 1pm 
  • Wednesday 3pm – 8pm
  • Thursday 8am – 1pm, 2pm- 6pm     
  • Friday 8am – 1pm

To assist with social distancing when the Chiropractic Clinic is open, the reception has been designated as a “walk-through” area to my treatment room (#3) on 1st floor, accessible using stairs. Please use a face covering when you enter/exit the building, when you walk through the reception area and along corridors of the practice.

Please send me a text when you have parked your car and remain in your car. If you have walked to the practice, send me a text to let me know that you are nearby. I will then text you back to say that I am ready to begin, usually up to 5 minutes before your appointment start time. Please only enter the clinic (using the main entrance on Whitchurch Road) when I have informed you that I am ready to start your treatment. The receptionist will greet you and direct you upstairs to my treatment room. Please use the hand sanitiser provided when you enter and exit the Chiropractic reception.

Text me on 07738 938197 if you have any problems on the day.

If your mobile phone is not functionalor you do not receive a text back from me, then please wait outside the clinic main entrance at your appointment time. I will come down to the reception to greet you.

 

2. Outside of Optimal Chiropractic opening hours

When the Chiropractic Clinic is closed, I personally operate the security of the front door, in between appointments. Please use a face covering when you enter/exit the building, when you walk through the reception area and along corridors in case therapists are still in the practice.

Please send me a text when you have parked your car and then remain in your car. If you have walked to the practice, send me a text to let me know that you are nearby. I will then text you back to say that I am ready to begin, usually up to 5 minutes before your appointment start time. Enter the clinic using the main entrance on Whitchurch Road. Please use the hand sanitiser provided when you enter and exit the Chiropractic reception. My treatment room is on 1st floor, accessible using stairs.

Text me on 07738 938197 if you have any problems on the day.

If your phone is not functional or you do not receive a text back from me, then please wait outside the clinic main entrance at your appointment time. I will come down to reception at your appointment time anyway if I have not had an arrival text from you.

 

Being accompanied during your treatment

Starting a new treatment process can seem daunting. Some clients want to be accompanied during their treatment. Others who are being escorted to the practice may wish to have someone present in the clinic building. To ensure social distancing measures are followed, it would be easier if your treatment was held when the Chiropractic Clinic is closed. Please discuss being accompanied during your treatment with me in advance of booking your appointment.

 

Face covering

Please use a face covering when you enter/exit the building, when you walk through the reception area and along corridors of the practice.

Social distancing will be maintained throughout the treatment. It is not necessary to wear a face covering in my treatment room as this will hinder much of the verbal and non verbal communication that is so important in talking therapy. If you have any health issues, want to wear a face covering, or would like me to wear a face covering, then please let me know in advance of booking your appointment.

If you have any further health concerns about face to face treatment, I offer the very effective treatment method option of online hypnotherapy by video call. More information: https://www.clinicalhypnotherapy-cardiff.co.uk/skype-hypnotherapy/

 

Toilets

Toilets can be accessed on 1st floor towards the back of the building.
