With the SportsRehab Lincoln team having crossed the road to join Motus Lincoln, physiotherapists Kim Bond and Jody Watson are now working closely with Brett Warman, Kathryn Claridge, Mary Robins, Jo Batchelor and Ethan Horne. “Joining the two centres together provides opportunity for professional cooperation and greater communication between the therapists so clients receive a high level of care and access to a larger network of health professionals,” says Brett Warman, Manager of Motus Lincoln. With two great physiotherapy clinics based on one site, clients have a single point of contact for a real community based onestop service with podiatry and massage therapy health professionals also available. Sharing a philosophy that emphasises retention of movement and mobility, the physiotherapists are now able to draw on a broader base of knowledge and skills when helping people of all ages from children to retirees. Close relationships will still be maintained with other health professionals including local GPs, podiatrists, massage therapists, hand therapists, and gym trainers as well as their on-going use of Lincoln University’s gym. Having one clinic will also make it easier for clients making an appointment as more physiotherapists are available to assist clients,whether needing help with their return to work, post-surgery recovery, arthritis pain, everyday injury, sports injury, back or neck pain, or pain management. Motus Lincoln will also continue their links with community groups and sports teams in conjunction with their nine clinics spread across Canterbury. Another exciting change ahead for the Lincoln physiotherapists will be early next year when they move into bigger and brighter premises. These are currently under construction next to the Challenge Service Station. The purpose-built premises will have a small on-site gym while their relationship with the even closer university gym will continue, assisting the physiotherapists in their proactive approach to injury management and rehabilitation. You will find SportsRehab alongside Motus Lincoln at 16 Gerald Street in Lincoln. For an appointment, phone Motus Lincoln on 03 3252039, SportsRehab on 03 3479494, or book on-line at www.motushealth.co.nz.

SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Tuesday July 25 2017 25 PETS & PAWS The ultimate in pooch pampering Regular brushing and washing prevents dog hair from becoming matted. Other benefits of grooming are that it allows the groomer to check for any abnormalities such as skin problems like ticks, fleas and dry patches, or issues with their nails, teeth, ears and eyes. “When hair is matted, it pulls on the skin affecting the dog’s comfort,” explains Loretta, owner of Luxe Doggy Day Spa. Loretta says when hair becomes matted it must be clipped out, a time consuming task that can stress a dog, especially when it is necessary to clip close to the skin to remove all matted hair. Luxe Doggy Day Spa is a boutique Loretta and her three pets. grooming service that offers one-on-one pampering grooms for dogs. Loretta has many regulars booked for a spruce-up every six weeks, as well as dogs that suffer from anxiety, all enjoying her caring and loving grooming. “I treat all the dogs like my own,” says Loretta who opened her business on Brookside Road last October. “It’s really important to me that each dog has a good experience and the client and dog are happy,” adds Loretta who admits to loving her work and living in Rolleston. Loretta initially intended to operate part-time however demand for her service has been so great that it is now a full-time operation with clients bringing their dogs from as far afield as Christchurch, Halswell, Hornby, Lincoln, West Melton, Burnham and even Ashburton. Only quality natural products are used and top of the line equipment that includes a proper quiet stand up blow dryer so a dog can be brushed dry, leaving them smelling superb. This explains why so many of her client pooches want to return and with three pets of her own, Mac (a Maltese), Oscar (a Shih Tzu) and the very affectionate Bella (a Spoodle) she has plenty of experience, recognising a dog’s distinctive personality provides important clues on how to handle them. Professional, friendly and caring are the words that best describe a pampering at Luxe Doggy Day Spa, available by appointment from Monday to Friday, between 9am and 5pm.
