My search didn’t show any practitioners near me, how can I find my nearest practitioners?

The easiest thing to do is to widen your search. In the search box you will notice a field to ‘Enter desired search radius (enter distance in kilometres)’. The search radius default distance is 15 km. You can change this radius to any distance up to 999kms. You can also delete the number out of this box to receive a listing of all practitioners within Australia.

Can I search by practitioner or business name?

Yes. Enter the practitioner’s name or business name in the ‘Business or practitioner name’ field and click search. Do not need to fill in any other fields. This will reveal any listing matching the name entered. If you type ‘Jane’ – all practitioner and business names containing ‘Jane’ will appear in the search. Exact spelling and punctuation must be used.  You can search using shortened forms. For example entering ‘Jan’ will reveal all practitioner and business names containing ‘Jan’, ‘Jane,’ ‘Jayne’ or any other extension of ‘Jan’.
