What and how we treat
Helping you to improve your health and reaching your goals safely
We look at the body as a whole with a Holistic approach.
The human body is a network of interconnected systems and tissues. Whilst injury and pain may be in a specific area, there is likely to be an underlying problem elsewhere. For example, lower back pain can often be traced to postural dysfunction in the lower legs and feet. As well as treating effectively a variety of musculoskeletal problems, we also help in the recovery from, and reduction of the symptoms of many medical conditions.
Our treatments utilise a range of massage and advanced soft tissue techniques set within a framework of assessment and rehabilitation procedures.
Communication is very important to us, to ensure you are receiving the full benefits of your treatments. We want to help you return back to activities as quickly and safely as possible so your care continues even after you have left the clinic.
