To our valued clients of GI Aquatics Physio, we would like to inform you we are taking advantage of the closure of CLM pools for re-tiling, and closing the physio clinic from Friday 19th April until Monday 6th May 2013, for our own refurbishment.
Our physiotherapists are still able to meet your needs from several of our other Auckland practices.

We are doing our very popular 20 minute for $20 massages to help out all the Round the Bays participants (& everyone else).
We have teamed up with Shoe Science so everybody that has a 20 minute massage during the month of March will get a $30 voucher off a pair of shoes.
To go with that everyone goes into the draw for $150 Shoe Science voucher.
Just contact our clinics here
