The Well Woman Clinic is a concept specialized in providing unique healthcare and medical needs of women. A one-stop health-care facility focused on today’s modern woman who often doesn’t have the time to look after her own medical requirements. In a busy community where the demands of caring for a family, or even our own jobs can prevent us from looking after ourselves, the Well Women Clinic is designed exclusively to provide women with a same-day health-care service.
Under the watchful eye of a comprehensive team of specialists involving lady-physicians, nurses, technicians and lady physiotherapists, Well Women Clinic provides well-defined consultations and diagnostic procedures; routine wellness exams and health care screenings; and the evaluation and treatment of numerous medical problems of special concern to women.

Our team uses an integrated approach combining manual therapy and rehabilitation along with the use of a biofeedback machine to assist in the assessment and treatment of pelvic floor issues.
