Treatment goes on

(just not in clinic)

I’m sad to say that with the impending “London lockdown” I have no alternative but to close the doors to my new clinic as of Monday 23rd March. I will be constantly reviewing all government updates and will let you know as soon as anything changes.

  • Physiotherapy treatment: switching to home visits
  • Keeping in touch: daily group video calls
  • Online Training, Pilates and Yoga
  • Advice on how can you help yourself and stay healthy
