“Life is too short to be a patient!”

we will set you back on the road.

We may provide other therapeutic interventions such as dry-needling which is treatment involving the application of fine acupuncture needles into muscles to reduce spasm and pain.

We also provide exercise analysis and treatment for people searching to optimise their sporting biomechanics


Unlike many practices we focus upon individual care and attention. As such we allow either 1 hour or half an hour appointment times for our patients and we only treat 1 patient per appointment time, in a private room – not a cubicle making your privacy your time and your discretion during treatment, paramount!
