How to find us

Getting There

The clinic address is 100 Holly Rd, St Albans, Christchurch.

Holly Rd is conveniently situated and easy to find. By travelling south along Papanui Rd towards the city just a few blocks up from Merivale Mall you can turn left directly into Holly Rd and then make your way up to number 100 where you will see a large yellow sign saying 'Herbal Health Clinic'

On the other hand If you are coming from Christchurch city and so you would be heading North up Papanui Rd and you are not supposed to take a right hand turn onto Holly Rd so an alternative route is to get yourself onto Bealey Ave which will give you a left hand turn if you are travelling East towards the sea on to Springfield Rd or a right hand turn if you are travelling West towards the Alps on to Durham St North (which then soon turns into Springfield Rd).

In either case once you are on Springfield Rd you just carry on for a short couple of blocks until you make a left turn into Holly Rd where you should get the first park you see as the clinic is just a few doors up from the corner of Springfield & Holly Rd.


Holly Rd is rather narrow when you come off Papanui Rd and you may have to give way to an oncoming car but it widens right around where the clinic is and it is usually easy to find some safe on-street parking right out front or nearby.
