Alexandra Health was established in 1983 and has developed into an integrated sports and health clinic with an amazing team offering Physiotherapy, TCM Acupuncture, Massage Therapy and Mental Health Counselling. Our health team strives to work together to ensure each client is directed to the therapy which will suit and help that client/condition the most.
The team of practitioners are carefully selected and trained as they need to be open-minded with each therapy’s limitations/qualities and consciously practise patient-orientated health. This isn’t limited to within the walls of Alexandra Health, we connect and refer to many other health professionals and engage with local doctors if required.
Our clinic operates by the client first making an appointment with the therapy that connects the most with them. On this webpage, under each therapy name when clicking the services tab you’ll find information about when to choose that therapy.
It is important for people to begin to understand how different therapy’s work and self-direct themselves initially. This is unfortunately because there are very limited health professionals that truly understand the depths of each therapy to be able to refer and direct accurately. This results in people having to think for themselves and try out different therapy’s until something works, usually by this time the condition can be quite chronic.
Our focus is to educate ourselves as practitioners on the intricate details of each therapy option and take more responsibility for ensuring the client’s healthcare path is most optimum.

Angela’s background is in IT Project Management & Testing, therefore excels in taking great care with client’s payments and booking needs. Having a particular eye for detail, Angela cares for our clinic so attentively and is a warm welcome into our healing space.
She has lived in sunny Central Otago for 9 years. One of Angela’s interests is home cheese making and, taking care of their herd of Saanen Dairy Goats certainly means that there is never a dull moment in the Mckeen household.
