Yes, we accept all major cards.

We are recognized by all the major insurance companies and you do not need a referral letter from your provider. The amount that can be claimed varies depending on your plan. Treatment costs are also tax deductible via a Med-1 form.
So for example, if you spend €60.00 on physiotherapy and you receive €40 from your health insurance company, then the remainder €20 is subject to tax relief. If you’re in the 42% bracket you can receive a further €8.40 in tax relief.

The treatment for each individual varies. However, following your first appointment we will discuss the anticipated number of treatments. You will be reassessed on each visit. On average, most patients usually require 2-3 treatments.
