How are we different?


Sore feet? We care. We listen. We want to understand you and YOUR feet. Above all, we want you to get better! This is what truly drives us. This means keeping up with the latest technology and being open to new evidence-based treatment options that could help you get back to what you love to do, faster. Alana and Hannah have undergone extra training for foot mobilisation therapy (FMT), nail bracing and MLS laser therapy.  They are passionate and bring that energy into the clinic where they are known for going above and beyond what is required by a Podiatrist.
