OUR SUSTAINABILITY COMMITMENT

At Wellness Embodied Cairns, we take our role within the community seriously and have many strategies in place to contribute positively to the Far North Queensland region.

ENVIRONMENT

We are advocates for best practice environmental management and have featured in The Cairns Post on several occasions as leading the way in healthcare. We set regular goals for minimising our carbon footprint, improving sustainable practices within our clinic and minimising waste created. We also post about these regularly on social media and on our blog, follow us for tips and tricks. More on this below.

COMMUNITY

Suzanne and the Wellness Embodied team are active participants in the Far North Queensland community. We believe in being better today than we were yesterday. To encourage our team’s personal and professional growth, each team member names a local charity of their choice when doing their quarterly goal setting and Wellness Embodied donates on their behalf for each of their achieved goals. Local causes supported can be seen on our Who We Support page.

HUMAN RIGHTS

Wellness Embodied respects fundamental human rights and the dignity of our clients, staff and the wider public by actively promoting equal opportunity, equality and diversity irrespective of race, ethnic or national origins, gender, sexuality, disability, marital status or religious belief. Our team is one of cultural diversity and we advocate for the rights of all people.

Some Environmental Initiatives

  • Turning off lights in our Cairns and Cooktown Physiotherapy Clinics after hours.
  • Separating our waste into recycling, compost and landfill bins.
  • Solar power in our Cooktown clinic.
  • Providing Keep Cups for our staff, to minimise use of disposable coffee cups.
  • Consciousness regarding ordering of equipment, to minimise single use plastics.

The Life You Can Save

In 2022, our total donations to charity were more than 0.5% of our turnover, a figure which if we were a country, places us above Switzerland and most other Western countries (reference: ‘The Life You Can Save’ by Peter Singer). These donations don’t include the many vouchers and gifts which we gave to local charities for raffles or sporting events, as well as our volunteer hours.

For 2023 we want to improve upon this, so as well as our local donations, we have set up a regular donation to ‘The Life You Can Save’ charity fund, which finds the most impactful charities in the world by the dollar cost to literally save lives. We appreciate how fortunate we are to live in Far North Queensland and have pledged a total of > 5% of profits to charity donations for 2023. Suzanne has also signed the pledge to donate 1% of her personal income to The Life You Can Save.

OUTREACH

Having provided Physiotherapy services to remote NT communities through Katherine West Health Board for over 3 years, we believe that living in a rural or remote area shouldn’t be a barrier to accessing Allied Health Services. Pre COVID, we were offering Telehealth to clients from Cooktown and the Torres Strait for conditions including vertigo, work injuries, acute injuries and post operative recovery. Post COVID we are immensely proud of our Cooktown clinic, which also services clients in the surrounding communities of Hopevale and Wujal Wujal, bringing a full time, private Physiotherapy service where there previously wasn’t one. We also offer Occupational Therapy in Cooktown, subject to client numbers.

Testimonials

They have great physios, who get to know you as a person, not just your illness. They also do nice little personal touches, like sending you a birthday message or checking in via text to see you're ok after a treatment.
