Our Team

We have an excellent team of well qualified and experienced therapists who can provide exceptional one on one treatments. Should your condition not be responding or progressing as expected we will quickly arrange for one of the partners to review the case and offer advice and treatment options. Should progress still not be as expected or the case requires further investigation or specialist intervention we will refer to the appropriate person.

With a large staff it is within your rights and responsibilities to choose the therapist that you would like to see. If you would like a second opinion please feel free to ask your therapist or reception staff – we will not be offended and we are there to help you the best we can as a clinic.
