Please do not do this via email ( as this causes delays.

We try to be as flexible as possible to accommodate your situation and offer appointments from 8am to 8pm, but, due to other commitments, different therapists are available at different times of day.

We regard our physiotherapists’ strong emphasis on accurate diagnosis and “hands-on” treatment approaches, such as massage, mobilisations and manipulations, as key to our success. In addition, our physiotherapists utilise other treatment techniques, such as electrotherapies, traction, acupuncture and exercises, in order to achieve the best possible outcomes. We are committed to helping people reach their individual goals, and our physiotherapists and dedicated remedial and sports masseur work closely together to ensure that all our clients receive the optimal therapy for their individual needs.


All our physiotherapists are members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) and are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Some of our physiotherapists are trained in the use of acupuncture, and are members of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP).

A doctor’s referral is not required for an appointment, but if payment is going to be made by an insurance company, you may require a referral from a doctor or consultant.

We are recognized by most of the major health insurance companies,

but please provide details of your health insurance policy prior to your first appointment 

to confirm that we are registered with your specific company. 

If your treatment is relating to an injury claim, you will be responsible for payment 

and will be personally responsible for the settlement of the account.
