Performance Medicine is a place for our clients, staff and patients to feel safe and cared for. This update is to let you know that we will be doing all we can to help you feel supported during this time. The safety, hygiene and welfare of our clients, team members and the greater community at Performance Medicine in this ever evolving climate is our number one priority.

The situation surrounding coronavirus (COVID-19) is at the forethought of our planning and we are constantly monitoring the current climate. Rest assured we have put in additional measures to make Performance Medicine as safe and hygienic as possible for your appointment.

Below are some of the extra steps we are taking around the studio:

  • Prominent locations of anti-bacterial hand sanitisers 
  • Cleaning and sanitising the studio and consultation rooms
  • Additional team training and maintaining our hygiene practices of hand washing and sanitiser before and after each session.
  • If you are in a group class, we encourage that you wear socks and we will ask you to wipe down any equipment with our antibacterial spray after use. 
  • Please give us a Namaste, tapping elbows or feet rather than shake hands
  • If you would like to wash your hands when you enter the studio please do so at our designated hand washing station 

We are ensuring that our team is all fit and well to be at work and will be encouraging them to stay home if they experience any cold or flu like symptoms and they will be calling their GP and following medical advice.  

We ask that those international travellers please observe the government directive to self quarantine for 14 days after your return to Australia.  

If you are unwell or are experiencing  cold or flu like symptoms please call your GP or the national hotline of 1800 020 080.

Telehealth appointments

For those of you who may be feeling unwell, too nervous to come in or find yourself in quarantine or self isolation, we are now offering Telehealth appointments.  

These appointments are available with your favourite therapist on your smart phone or device and we can assess, diagnose, educate and help you complete self treatment during these sessions just like we do in a face to face session.  These sessions are an excellent way to keep your treatment plan and rehab on track if you can’t make it in (plus no travel time!).  

These appointments are available online as Telehealth Physiotherapy Consultation

We acknowledge the fear and anxiety in the community and if this situation is causing you stress or anxiety, please seek help through friends, family and we are here for you.  You can also access assistance from the following:

  • Lifeline 13 11 14
  • Headspace   1800 650 890
  • Kids Helpline 1800 55 1800
  • Support Act Wellbeing Helpline  1800 959 500

For more information and to keep yourself informed please see the Government website

We hope you find this email to be both useful and comforting. 

Please remember that we are here for you and our Telehealth solutions are here so that you can stay connected with us and keep your body and mind on track. 

If you have any questions please give Lucinda, Bram and Devon a call on 03 9686 2373.

We look forward to seeing you in the studio soon and will keep the community updated.

With LOVE,

The Performance Medicine team
