  • Slow-stream Therapy 

A less intense therapy package involving one to two sessions per month with optional, interim exercises. This therapy package suits individuals preferring a slower pace of therapy or as a follow on to an Intensive Therapy package. It will be organised over a four to six month period with a half way review and goal planning.
