Happy to be released from what I thought might be (very) early retirement back in the Winter! The online booking system is open from 12th April. Any teachers that can’t find a slot they need this week (Easter Holidays) please contact me and I will try and fit you in. Really looking forward to seeing…

Bring Peace and Love to Your Ankle Sprain Recovery

Most of us have experienced going over on an ankle whether running or some other seemingly innocuous activity. Instantly you are hobbling or sitting on the floor clutching the offending foot and, if a runner, wondering when you’ll run again and quickly stopping the Garmin. Advice for treatment has always followed acronyms based on similar…

Lockdown #3

Unfortunately in line with Government legislation, I am closing my doors once again for face to face treatments. However I am still here to help and support you through this time with telephone or online consultations. I can still give bespoke rehabilitation and advice. Please do get in touch if you have any concerns regarding…

Remedial Massage in Chippenham

Treatments Resume :)

Happily I was able to start treating from 13th July. It’s been a very busy 4 or 5 weeks catching up with regulars and meeting and treating new ones. My home clinic is a little pared back from what it was, no soft furnishings and little decorative luxuries for the moment but the same quality…

Plantar Facsciitis

CPD and Not Quite Open!

Unfortunately Soft Tissue Therapy and Sports Massage didn’t quite make the cut in the list of other industries that are allowed to operate from 4th July – Boris clearly hasn’t had a treatment to know that the role plays an important part in healthcare.
