Until further notice, all visitors to the clinic will be asked to abide by the following steps to help ensure our safety:-
Firstly, if you have a fresh cough or temperature, any cold symptoms or if you have been in recent contact with anybody who may have COVID-19 symptoms; then please cancel your appointment. You will not be charged.
On the day of your Appointment, please TEXT me from the car park and wait for an answer before walking to the clinic. If you are not driving, please turn up for your appointment at your allotted time and not before, as there is no waiting room facility at the moment.
When you arrive at the clinic, please ring the door bell AND WAIT FOR ME TO LET YOU IN.
YOU MUST COME ALONE unless prearranged with me beforehand. (If you have a companion, they will also have to fill out the health declaration form and have their temperature taken)
ON ARRIVAL – AT THE FRONT DOOR, I will take your temperature using a non-contact Thermometer, as long as your temperature is not higher than 37.8°C /99.5°F. (If you are pregnant it’s 38°C). If this happens you will be politely declined entry.
YOU MUST WEAR A FACE MASK WHEN INSIDE THE CLINIC AT ALL TIMES. 2m Social distancing inside the clinic will be adhered to at all times until Diagnosis / Treatment begins and making this impossible. IF YOU FORGET YOUR MASK, YOU WILL HAVE TO BUY ONE FROM ME for £1 BEFORE ANY TREATMENT IS GIVEN.

PLEASE BRING A PEN with you and any water you may require.
Finally, before any treatment commences, You (and any guest) have to fill out a COVID-19 declaration form. BY SIGNING THIS FORM, YOU WILL CONSENT TO TAKE PART IN AND ADHERE TO, THE WELSH TEST, TRACE AND PROTECT PROTOCOL.
I use disposable Couch coverings and use full disposable PPE where possible, that I change between each patient. To allow for this as well as FULL antibacterial surface cleaning between each person, your appointment slot can only last 45 minutes or less, and will be adhered to in all cases to allow for a 30 minute ‘cleansing’ gap between each appointment
Your Treatment and what to expect
I believe that a multi-skilled, fully trained practitioner using combinations of suitable Bodywork & Energy techniques, can offer the best chance to help a person with the pain and debilitation brought on by many muscular skeletal, conditions and injuries.
Before any treatment takes place, I take your full case history and then discuss your condition and suitability for treatment. Following this, some basic neurological checks are conducted along with diagnostic routines designed to establish the exact cause of your discomfort. Only then – and after discussing the findings with you – is any treatment administered.-
Using a therapy combining approach, I can usually cover all aspects of an injury presented to me without the need to refer to other Therapists. (It’s not unusual for some Therapists to refer patients away, when a patient’s problem exceeds their own skill set – which in turn usually leads to higher costs for the patient).
Usually the only referrals I make are occasionally back to the patient’s own GP, and this is usually done via a letter written at the time of the consultation and taken by the patient themselves.
I describe myself as a ‘NeuroMuscular Therapist’, but NeuroMuscular Therapy is only one of the approaches I might use to treat a condition that is presented to me, other forms of treatment I may use include:
- Myofascial Release
- Muscle Energy Technique
- Modern Acupuncture
- Remedial Massage
- Cranial-Sacral technique
Using these techniques I have treated people from all walks of life and of all ages, from long retired teachers to elite Athletes – so if you are in pain, then I may be able to help you. Please call or text me for an appointment or you can send a message with the form on the right.
I may be able to help with any chronic or acute muscular skeletal pain, including:
- Head / neck / jaw pain
- Back / hip / Groin pain
- Shoulder / Arm /hand
- TFL / ITB /Knee pain
- Upper or lower leg pain
- Plantar fasciitis / Foot / Ankle pain
Please call or text me to see if I can help with your condition.
- PLEASE NOTE: I am a remedial Therapist. My role is to help you recover from an injury or condition affecting you, and then maintain you through follow-up appointments. Therefore, I’m afraid that I do not provide relaxing full body massage services sorry.
