A New Year is upon us, and with its dawning comes my new and improved blog! If you followed me here from my old Blogger pages - thank you! I hope to post articles here much more often than on my old blog which, I admit, had become quite neglected in 2012! If you are completely new to my blog - welcome! I will be posting many articles here, with topics ranging from exercise tips and information on musculo-skeletal injuries & conditions, to nutrition news, scientific research updates, and information about aromatherapy oils. If you have any suggestions for an article you would like to see, please email me your suggestions, as I am always on the lookout for new topics! In addition to the informational articles, I will also be posting important news related to my clinic, JENNIFER LAMB MASSAGE, so be sure to check back here often for updates about any specials I may be running!
NEW WEBSITE & SOCIAL MEDIA:
As you can see, the new Website is up! I am quite pleased with the results so far! I'll be tweaking things here and there, of course, but overall, I hope you like the site, and find it informative and easy to navigate. I have also re-vamped my Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube pages to match the new design, as well as added a Pinterest page that will highlight exercise and nutrition. If you have any suggestions for improving any of these social media pages, please send me a comment! I have big plans, in particular, for my YouTube channel, so be sure to check back here occasionally for updates.
NEW CLINIC UPDATE:
The new clinic is almost ready! I hope to begin taking current clients from next week (14 January), and new clients as of February. The clinic is easy to find, as it is located on Macquarie Street in the Sydney CBD, adjacent to Macquarie Street Pharmacy and right across the road from the NSW Parliament House. The building itself is called "Agriculture House" - which I find amusing, since I hold a degree in Agriculture - and the clinic is on the 6th floor. (Lift service is slow, but thankfully, appears very reliable so far.) I am hoping to add "Jennifer Lamb Massage" to the building's internal directories very soon, but as these things take a little while to be processed, please note that for the moment, the clinic remains unlisted. Appointments will be necessary, as I will be keeping my door locked when in consultation. So, please call to arrange an appointment!
I am currently awaiting a telephone call from HICAPS to set up a time for my HICAPS terminal to be installed. Once the terminal is operational, I should be able to process electronic payments (EFTPOS, VISA, MasterCard, AMEX). Until then, I will still be able to take appointments, as long as you bring good, old-fashioned cash. Electronic processing of Health Fund rebates will be available as soon as the HICAPS terminal is active and I receive my new Medibank Private provider number (which is required for all HICAPS Health Fund transactions) in the post. "They" say it takes 2-3 weeks, so I hope that the number will arrive by the beginning of February. In the meantime, most Health Fund rebates (with the exception of Medibank Private) should be able to be claimed by paying the account in full at the time of consult, and then sending the receipt in to your Health Fund Provider. Some providers even allow for electronic submission, so be sure to check with your Fund for more details! I apologise for the inconvenience, but I suppose this is what happens when you try to set up a new clinic over the holiday season!
