My caseload is very diverse.
Structural & soft tissue dysfunctions are very different & unique to every client evolving from posture & lifestyle, illness, operations an injuries. Each client's experience of their condition is unique to them. Having worked in many different hospitals & departments, private clinics & rugby clubs I have been fortunate enough to have gained a diverse clinical experience. With a comprehensive set of skills I aim to manage many conditions - acute & chronic. I combine my MFR, Physio, Complementary skills (Lava Shell, Himalayan, Gua Sha, WaveStone & Cupping Massage) with exercise & self management to initiate a journey to improve the outcome for my clients.
Writing as an 80 year old arthritic with Scheuermann disease, it gives me great pleasure to give Heather the highest possible recommendation. She has been treating me for about a year, and her gentle - but extremely accurate-ministrations make me feel better than I have for years. I leave her feeling 10 years younger each time. Added to her undoubted skill as a physiotherapist, she is a very pleasant companion & the hour flies by. M Evans
Strongly recommended for injuries both major & minor. Excellent treatment for a back ailment I had 4 months & struggled to shake off. Particularly enjoy the breadth of treatments Heather can offer. R Adair
I first went to see Heather in May 2021, a month after bad headaches had stopped me being able to drive or work at the computer. They affected my site, which seemed fuzzy, and I consulted the doctor twice pulled up I was prescribed naproxen second time and this helped that cause problems with my circles I was saying a lot of time lying down, as being upright was too painful for his treatment every two weeks made an enormous difference. First got the papers after today six weeks tweet visits on a full stop the exercises are so relaxing and have made a difference by incredibly grateful to Heather for what she has done. C Lester
