What we do

joint mobilisations and manipulations

Joint mobilisations / manipulations

This simply means moving your joints into a better position. This is done by applying controlled pressure to a joint of the spine or limbs which can help to relieve pain and improve physical function.

These techniques can help relieve discomfort from sports injuries, joint pain, neck and jaw presentations and headaches.

remedial therapeutic massage


Whether it be for pain relief in pregnancy, enhancing sports performance or simply to unwind and relax, our skills in massage can be the vital ingredient for optimal health and performance. A one to one pre-massage consultation helps get the best from your visit, to ensure we target all the right areas and focus on the correct treatment during your visit.

We provide soft tissue therapy, sports massage, remedial and therapeutic massage, lymphatic drainage and pregnancy massage.

triggerpoint release

Trigger point release

When muscles are tired or working at a length they’re not used to, the fibres congregate together and form knots. These can cause lots of pain. If the right pressure is placed on the trigger point for around 15 seconds, the knot will be released and the muscle will return to its optimal length. This can be done via manual pressure alone e.g. with fingers/hands or via dry needling.

dry needling acupuncture

Dry needling / acupuncture

This is a therapy which uses fine acupuncture needles to create a localised reaction within muscles. It is used to treat muscle pain, tension, inflammation and spasm which commonly accompany conditions such as arthritis, nerve irritation and muscles strains.

We also use dry needling to de-activate trigger points (knots) within muscles. This can reduce pain and spasm and also potentially reduce the need for pain-relieving medication. Occasionally, dry needle points coincide with acupuncture meridians meaning there can be double benefit!



Cupping is a gentle and effective technique that aims to restore function, movement and flexibility to the soft tissues that connects the body together like ligaments, muscles and tendons.

Cupping uses suction to create a vacuum in a small cup, which is placed on the skin to lift the underlying tissues and break up the tissue layers that limit our flexibility. It also promotes the hydration of these tissues to help prevent further damage from forming.

The cups cause localised bruising but these are usually painless and will clear within a few days. Cupping is known to help activate the lymphatic system, promote blood circulation, and is extremely useful for deep tissue repair.

physio taping


When a joint or muscle is damaged it doesn’t work as well as it normally would, or at a length it’s not used to. This means it gets tired and then causes pain. When we put tape on at the right pressure and angle, you can realign the joints and muscles and take lots of pressure off them. This reduces your pain and makes it much easier to move and do what you enjoy. There are some tapes patients are allergic to so we have other options just in case you are irritable to the material. We use rigid sports tape, kinesio (rock) tape and also hypoallergenic tape to protect the skin.

Pilates mat class

Pilates matwork

Matwork Pilates is a fantastic way to work on your core strength and flexibility. You do these exercises on a mat, so there's no need for fancy equipment. It's a great choice for people of all fitness levels, and it can help with things like posture, balance, and toning your muscles. Plus, it's low-impact, so it's easy on your body. Whether you want a stronger core or just an enjoyable way to stay fit, Matwork Pilates has got you covered. You can do matwork 1:1 with your physio or in a small group class. You will need to do an assessment so we can work out which level is best for you.

reformer pilates

Pilates reformer

Reformer Pilates is a fun and effective way to improve your strength and flexibility. You use a specialised piece of equipment called a Reformer, which adds resistance and support to your workouts. It helps people of all fitness levels and can help with things like toning your muscles, enhancing your posture, and boosting your balance. It's a low-impact workout, so it's gentle on your body. Whether you're looking to build a stronger core or just want a more enjoyable way to stay in shape, Reformer Pilates is a great option. You can do reformer on your own or in a small group. Your physio will do an assessment so we can come up with the best exercise program for you.

biomechanical assessment

Biomechanical assessment

Biomechanical assessment looks at the way in which our joints and muscles move together as we walk, run and move.

It involves analysing how your sit, stand, reach and twist. We can then understand which body parts and tissues are moving too much or not enough. This then helps us develop the right action plan for your care.

strength training

Strength training

We create specific strength programs tailored to your specific need and ability, using either exercise bands, weight machines or free weights. This not only makes the muscles stronger but also helps with things like flexibility and balance. Using gym equipment in this way is a safe and effective way to get stronger and feel better.

pre or post-surgery rehab exercise

Pre / post surgery rehab

Pre and post-surgery rehabilitation is a crucial part of the recovery journey. Before surgery, physiotherapists work with patients to strengthen and prepare their bodies for the procedure. They use various exercises and techniques to enhance muscle tone, flexibility, and overall health, which can help to improve surgical outcomes. After the surgery, the focus shifts to gentle exercises and stretches, gradually rebuilding strength and mobility while minimizing pain and discomfort. By tailoring rehabilitation to individual needs and closely monitoring progress, physiotherapists play a vital role in helping patients regain their independence and quality of life. It's all about getting people back on their feet and feeling their best as quickly as possible.



To complement our hands on therapy, we sometimes use different machines to increase the effect of treatment. Ultrasound speeds up the metabolic rate beneath the surface of the skin to help break down scar tissue and increase local blood flow. Laser increases circulation, which brings nutrients and oxygen to the area, helping the body to heal itself. Interferential creates a localised electrical current to reduce spasm, relieve pain and stimulate muscle contractions.
