Celebrating 10,000 Clients
We have recently achieved the milestone of having 10,000 clients! Here we are presenting our 10,000th client, David, with vouchers for a free massage, acupuncture treatment and naturopathy session.
Thank you to everyone who has come into the clinic over the years, and allowed us to become part of your lives (client number one still visits us monthly!).
It is probably a good time to reflect on our journey to get here. All of my life I have had a strong desire to help others, and I loved the idea of using nature to heal the body. So soon after the start of my adult life I decided to become a full-time natural therapist. After graduating as an acupuncturist, I started treating clients from a room in my house, but this felt unprofessional. I also wanted to raise the standing and profile of natural therapies, so 21 years ago I moved to the Westlake Professional Centre and established Centenary Natural Therapies Clinic. Having other therapists meant that we could improve the lives of many more people than I could treat myself, so I found a Brisbane remedial massage therapist to work there as well. Originally the clinic had no proper rooms, only curtains, and there was no air-conditioning, so in summer we had to keep the front and back doors open to get a breeze through, and in winter we froze! We were next door to a vet, and sometimes the mournful howls of a dog alone in a cage would resonate through the clinic. Not ideal conditions! But I soon renovated the clinic, putting in 3 treatment rooms, air-conditioning, carpet, nice furniture, etc.
My philosophy was always to provide the highest standard of treatments possible, so I embarked on a quest to find the best therapists that I could (which still continues today).
So the clinic steadily grew in quality, reputation and client numbers. Five years ago, I decided that we needed larger, purpose-built premises, so we moved to the Jindalee Village shopping centre. The new clinic has 6 treatment rooms, and we used an interior designer to optimize the appearance. Each room has extra sound-proofing, is computer networked, and the 5 rooms for massage and acupuncture all have electric treatment tables. We now have 2 massage therapists, 4 acupuncturists, 2 naturopaths, and 3 reception/admin staff at our clinic. I am proud of each of them, not just because they are great at what they do, but they are all great people as well, which is even more important.
We constantly strive to provide the highest quality treatments possible, and I believe that our dedication to excellence has led us to achieve our reputation in the community, and win 9 separate awards for our services and customer care.
If you have any type of health problem, we would love to see if we can sort it out for you. Just book in for a free Comprehensive Assessment, and we can check what is going on, what has caused the problem, and the best way to sort it out. Have a great life!
