The team at Habit Rehabilitation are dedicated to providing great customer service, and industry leading clinical care. We are primarily a manual therapy clinic, which means treatments are delivered with a “hands on” bias.
We understand and value the importance of developing and maintaining honest and trusting relationships with our clients. We feel that this provides the best platform for effective clinical care and communication, and we encourage client feedback.
There are some circumstances when we can’t help, or physiotherapy isn’t appropriate and we will either contact your primary physician, which is typically your General Practitioner, or we can directly refer you to some of New Zealand’s leading Medical Specialists and Allied Health Professionals.
Habit Rehabilitation is highly geared towards ongoing education, and as a clinic we have a close working relationship with Auckland University of Technology (AUT). We provide teaching facilities for undergraduate, and post-graduate physiotherapy students, and staff lecture in specialized subjects. Ongoing education is a priority among our staff, and all our physiotherapists participate in regular professional development including formal Masters level post-graduate study, or regular clinical reviews, and mentoring.
Our processes and procedures as an accredited practice are similarly important and we are regularly audited to ensure we meet rigorous Allied Health Sector Standards.
