What can you expect?
Note: Once healed we can also look at MSTR Treatments to further reduced the scarring and softening the affected area, if needed.
If you are physically to make it in to the Centre, then provided you are on the North Shore, I can arrange to come to your home for treatments. Think about this as part of your post care plan as you will need to contact me to confirm.
Please note the additional travel fee of up to $25 on top of the 60 minute treatment cost
