Our pricing policy
At Arise Osteopathy we value each client and the commitment, time and cost involved in seeking care. In turn, we hope and trust that each of you can respect and value the commitment, time and cost involved in providing you with that care. For every half hour you spend with us at the clinic, there is most likely another half hour spent for you behind the scenes. It might be recording detailed clinical notes, researching the latest and best management protocols, developing rehabilitation programs, writing referrals or creating great online content to continue your health education at home. We are passionate about improving the health of each individual who seeks our care and strive to make our care accessible to all.
Our commitment to community
Arise Osteopathy is committed to being socially responsible and community minded. To that end we have pledged to donate 1% of all sales (that’s sales, not profits) to a given charity or community organisation every three months. 1% may not sound like a lot, and it might not be, but as a small business we want to make a pledge we know we can keep. We would love for you to be involved too. If you know of a local charity or community organisation that needs our support, please contact us. We are keen to support local organisations who promote health be it mental health, physical health or community involvement and wellbeing.
