My passion is holistic care, combining the benefits of Physiotherapy with Acupuncture and small lifestyle adjustments to enhance health and wellbeing.

I treat a variety of conditions including pain. I will take time to listen to your concerns and formulate a treatment plan that you are completely happy with.

You may benefit from physiotherapy at any time in your life. Physiotherapy can improve a variety of conditions including cancer, respiratory and neurological diseases and arthritis as well as back and joint injuries.

Physiotherapy supports people living with symptoms such as pain, weakness, fatigue and breathlessness.

An individualised assessment will be undertaken before negotiating a treatment plan that you are completely happy with.


For 3000 years fine needles have been inserted to relive pain and achieve balance. This therapy combines the modern scientific view with the concept pf Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Acupuncture enhances the body’s own natural healing and enables more effective rehabilitation or recovery. The benefits of acupuncture may occur after one session  but usually build up over a few treatments. The effects can last from hours to days, to months. The aim of acupuncture is to improve the quality of your life.

Treatment for Lymphoedema

Lymphoedema can occur following surgery or cancer treatment of the lymph vessels or nodes are damaged. The area may become swollen if drainage of the lymph fluid is ineffective.

Lymphoedema can’t usually be cured but the aim of treatment is to control it by preventing infections, reducing swelling and improving the function in the limb or affected area.

Treatments can include skin care, movement and exercises, manual lymphatic drainage (massage) and self massage.
