ACC Consultations: 

ACC subsidies are available for all treatments resulting from an accident or injury. Recent legislative changes have meant that patients are now required to make a contribution to this treatment. You do not need a referral to see us, however, if you do have a referral form from your doctor or hospital or any health provider, then make sure to bring that documentation with you to your appointment. 

Lowest Rate Private Consultations: 

3 out of 5 New Zealanders lives with chronic pain in New Zealand. This is because they do not have the right knowledge and the treatments available are not at affordable costs. We at Thrive, have kept our private consultation prices low because we genuinely want everyone to seek advice and guidance for their conditions. That way you do not have to wait to get an appointment in the hospital which can take more than 6 months. See us to get the right treatment you need, you are not meant to be living with pain.
