Our Approach

womens-health

Every engagement begins with a private one-hour initial appointment with one of our Women’s Health Specialist Physiotherapists. This meeting includes a detailed history, examination and formulation of a treatment plan, which may involve manual therapy techniques, acupuncture and specific exercises. A tailored moveBeyond programme may be recommended, as well as establishing a series of follow-up sessions.

Our Women’s Health physiotherapists are available to speak to you in confidence should you have any issues you would like to discuss with them.
