We also begin hands on treatment in your initial session and will talk you through our treatment objectives.

We spend a lot of time doing the hands-on hard work loosening up muscles, which are often disregarded by many therapists (usually because it’s time consuming).

There a times when more investigation is needed to understand the underlying source of pain. We may suggest scans or seeing specific specialists. We don’t believe in over treating and will refer on and make recommendations when needed.

Our close team of therapists regularly have meetings and continue with professional education. Continuing to learn and grow, understanding new treatment and conditions is crucial for giving clients the very best treatment.

We have thousands of happy clients, some that have been with us or for over 10 years. 

Our standard appointments run for an hour. This allows us to get the job done right. By allocating the necessary time to treat means you are more likely to have better outcome measures
