Accelerate Physiotherapy is on the move after 21 years at 112 Don Street!

New premises21 years ago when we shifted into our current clinic it was the first purpose designed building for a physiotherapy clinic in Invercargill and now it is time to expand and upgrade again.

This time we are shifting to 60 Deveron Street (just opposite the Batch Cafe) where we again have a purpose designed building to meet the current needs of a progressive physiotherapy clinic.

Our new reception area is large, bright and welcoming with our corporate colours also featuring. The clinic has 6 individual treatment rooms, a designated Pilates studio for mat classes, and a separate gym in which we will have Pilates studio equipment as well as a treadmill, exercycle, swiss ball, balance boards and weights.

We will now be able to offer Pilates classes in a spacious area with room for both clients and our Pilates trained physiotherapist who takes the classes. Because we see the importance of small class groups to maximise the gains you will get, classes continue to be small and numbers are limited especially when you are first learning. To access the Pilates mat studio you do need to be able to climb a flight of stairs, however we can cater for others in our gym area.

With the Pilates Studio equipment we will be able to offer reformer, trapeze table and exochair sessions and hope to introduce studio classes along with our individual programmes we currently run.

We welcome people to come and visit the clinic to see what we can offer and will be at 60 Deveron Street from Monday 27th January 2014.

Christmas at the Cromwell Races

It was decided this year that our Christmas Party was going to be a little different so on the 1st December  we made the journey to Cromwell for their annual Races.

We all made an effort to dress up, with the ladies having to wear a fascinator and the men having to wear a Christmas themed tie. Lindsay, Alana and Lucy all entered ” Fashion in the field” and had a great time but unfortunately didn’t win the ultimate prize. The blokes all looked great in their ties but could not be persuaded to join in with the fashion parade.

The weather promised rain and a chilly wind but in true central Otago fashion, the heat set in and we were glad of the wee breeze. Throughout the day we found solace in the shade of our tent and some good old SPF 30.

Graham was on the BBQ and did a fantastic job of keeping us fed while we had a good supply of refreshing beverages throughout the day.

Overall it was a great day with lots of fun had by all and the only person who had any luck was Lindsay when she won a trip around the race course in a new Bentley.

Accelerate Physiotherapy wishes you a very Merry Christmas and a Safe and Happy New Year.

P.S. We are open throughout the holiday period apart from the Stat days so if you need us, you know where to come to.
