Dear Clients,

The open time of our Workington clinic is reduced to 3 days a week from 13th November, due to Liyan's visit to China. During this period, treatments will be carried out by another practitioner Amy, supervised by Dr Peng Zhang, who is normally based in Penrith. We will let you know when Liyan is back to work.
