To align with current Government legislation,  a number of clinic procedures have been introduced and update since NZ introduced the 'traffic light' system.

As an acupuncturist and an ACC Provider, Emily is under Allied Health and as such must  treat all patients equally, whether they are vaccinated or not.

This means that Heal Holistic, my clinic, will remain open, accepting all clients. Should you wish to discuss specifics of this, such as concerns or requests, please do not hesitate to contact me.

For unvaccinated clients: You are welcome in my clinic. I am confident in my screening and hygiene practices to keep you safe.

For immunocompromised clients: If you would like to come first in the morning, or last in the evening, please feel like you can contact me about this, or any concerns you may have.

If you can answer ‘Yes’ to ANY of the following screening questions then please do not come into the clinic:

  1. Have you tested positive for COVID-19? (subject to being certified by a medical health professional as fully recovered)

  2. Have you had contact with anyone with confirmed COVID-19, or someone who has been in direct contact with a confirmed case, in the last 10 days?

  3. Have you had any of these symptoms in the last 10 days?
      Fever greater than 38°C
      Difficulty breathing
      Loss of sense of smell or taste

If you can answer yes to any of these questions, please do not attend this clinic. If you have any signs or symptoms of a cold or flu then please contact your GP and arrange to be tested for Covid-19.
