To our beautiful community,
What a year it has been! Such challenges, growth, grief, anger, rest, chaos… it has effected all of us in so many different ways and the next stage of lockdown may bring up similar things. But this time, we go into it on the back of the past challenges. This can leave some of us with less resources and resilience and can make this next phase feel even harder. Which is why we are so determined to be able to keep supporting you and keeping our wonderful community together and supported.
WHAT’S HAPPENING AT THE YOGA STUDIO?
So we are very happy to tell you that the GOOD NEWS that our amazing Teachers have again, risen to the challenge and have set up their homes into make-shift studios to be able to continue to stream ONLINE classes to you.
The timetable of amazing Yoga, Qi Gong, Meditation and Prenatal Yoga will continue! This of course will look a little different to the Studio. This time, we will invite you into our lounge rooms, bedrooms, garages etc and you will get to see the odd cat, dog and child popping their heads into to your classes, just as we have had the delight of seeing a glimpse of your world through the ONLINE classes. Please be patient as we set up the teachers with quality mics for top quality sound, as we know this is so important to your experience.
The other GOOD NEWS is that the majority of modalities in the Clinic are all set up for Telehealth, this includes; Kinesiology, Naturopathy, Clinical Nutrition, Chinese Medicine, Psychotherapy, Couples Counselling, Hypnotherapy, Body Centred Therapies, Tarot, Myotherapy & Osteopathy. You will be surprised how effective and therapeutic the sessions are. Our amazing Therapists are able to work their magic and provide health care for you from the comfort and safety of your own home.
The not so good news is that Remedial Massage, Cranial Sacral Therapy and Shamanic Healing are going to be closed for the remainder of the lockdown. This is unfortunate but we value your safety and health and understand that we all have to do our bit to slow the spread of COVID 19. We will definitely be grateful for when it returns.
OSTEOPATHY & CHINESE MEDICINE OPEN FOR URGENT CARE:
The Clinic is effectively closed for face-to-face treatments during the lockdown, except URGENT care. The Government has specified that Osteopathy and Chinese Medicine Acupuncture Practitioners can still offer face-to-face care if the client has:
- an ‘endorsed health plan’ such as TAC, NDIS, Workcover or DVA
- and/or care must only be provided if the absence of, or delay of this care, would result in a significant change/deterioration in the your functional independence, necessitating escalation of care.
This means that we are still able to provide in-house treatments for you at this time but we will need to ascertain whether the treatment is of an urgent nature or if we can manage it via Telehealth. If you are unsure please call reception and they will direct you to one of our practitioners to go through your specific situation and find the right answer for you. You can also speak to your GP and ask for a referral if you need, but you don’t need one specifically. These guidelines may change if numbers start to look better and we will try to keep you abreast of any changes that occur. But they are put in place to save lives, so please think carefully if this applies to you.
You are permitted to travel for essential healthcare over 5 kms to your appointment if it is under the above guidelines. We are still waiting for clarity as to whether you are able to travel to pick up your prescriptions, but we will send them to you via post until such time as we know for sure.
Please know that your physical and mental health is very important during this time and although there are restrictions, the government has put in guidelines to allow you to still be supported and cared for during this time. Please reach out to your practitioner or primary health care provider if you need to.
To help keep you safe we are still enforcing strict disease control guidelines over and above the recommendations. To support this, please speak to your practitioner about re-scheduling your appointment if you have cold and flu symptoms (no matter how mild they may be), a temperature, have been in contact with someone with COVID 19 or you are awaiting a COVID 19 test result, or if you have been overseas in the 14 day period prior to coming in to the clinic. Our therapists will also ensure that they are healthy on the day of your appointment. We take this very seriously and will strive to ensure safety throughout. It is Kundalini House’s policy that you wear a mask throughout the treatment unless you have a medical reason not to. Please note your practitioner will take your temperature upon entry. You will also be asked to please sanitise or wash your hands, as well as practice good respiratory hygiene and physical distancing during your visit.
KUNDALINI HOUSE STORE:
Our store will be shut for the remainder of the lockdown.
We thank you all for your ongoing support and we wish you all safety, love and warmth during this time. We look forward to seeing you online or in house very soon.
Pip, Billie and the Team at Kundalini House.
