Our Mission

core
By Michael Hall

Bodywise Health is made up of people who are committed to the care, wellbeing, health and happiness of all people. Our mission is to provide for the optimal recovery and prevention of all physical injuries by delivering world’s best health services and products on time, every time, so that all people may realise their physical potential and live and perform at their highest level.

Beginning with ourselves, we will “walk our talk” by living our ideals through healthy, balanced life habits. Recognising too that we can only give what we have got, we will work continuously on developing and improving our knowledge, skills and characters through our own private study as well as weekly/monthly in-services.

In our interactions with people, we will build relationships of respect and trust, through empathetic listening, reasoned, open, honest communication and by delivering on our promises.

In all situations, we will be guided by an abundance mentality and seek win, win, win solutions through creative, synergistic and collaborative thinking.

Through our services and products, we will always seek to add value and give without the expectation of return as we try to build a better world for others and ourselves.

Whilst all aspects of our organisation will be systems orientated, from the phone scripts that we use, to greeting and discharging clients, to the treatment programs that we implement to optimise recovery and prevention, we will never forget that the purpose of these systems is to create space so that the experience of all people can be personalised and enable us to deliver world class health services and products that go above and beyond peoples’ expectations.

Our Purpose

core
By Michael Hall

Our purpose is all about…You , Your Health, Your Happiness, Your Life

We are privileged to be able to assist you with one of the most important aspects of your life – your health. Because it doesn’t matter how much money you’ve got, how many friends you have or what exotic locations you have travelled to, it is difficult if not impossible to be happy if you are not healthy.

Ultimately, great health is a means to you being fulfilled, free, relaxed and happy. And seeing you happy, knowing that you are able to experience a higher quality of life as a result of what we can offer, is what our purpose is all about. For us here at Bodywise Health, our purpose is all about your......

Your Fulfilment

Living life to the max, making the most of each moment, feeling more fully alive, being able to more fully participate life activities, enjoy moments with friends and create memories with family - this is what great health is all about.

Your Freedom

As your physical control improves, mobility and flexibility increases and strength develops, the more possibilities you have for living and connecting, for exploring and discovering and for doing and experiencing. Being in better shape, is about feeling great, looking good and more… It’s about you having choices and being free.

Your Peace of Mind

Trustworthiness and integrity are such rare commodities these days that the opportunity to deliver on our promises is a challenge that we both enjoy and delight in. It also brings peace of mind, an essential ingredient of achieving better, faster results.

Your Choice

Whether your goals be to play with your kids, laugh with your friends, compete in sport, or whatever you want in life, being able to do this without the limitations of aches or pain, stiffness or weakness, is both a gift and a choice. Your choice! You have the freedom and the power to change your life today, to make it better for you, your family and your friends.

Your Happiness

Ultimately, great health is a means to you being fulfilled, free, at peace and happy. And seeing you happy, knowing that you are able to experience a higher quality of life as a result of what we can offer, is what our purpose is at Bodywise Health.

Your Life

No more excuses. No more putting your health off. No more being second best. No more living incompletely, with pain or limitation. Your well-being is foundational to everything else in your life. Without it, it’s almost impossible to be happy, to participate completely and to enjoy moments fully. A moment where life can’t be lived to the utmost is a moment lost. It’s time to make up for lost time.
