Due to the current Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, we have temporarily suspended in-patient consultations at our clinic but are offering remote consultations instead. These are also currently being supported by most of the major health insurers. We understand that living with pain or injury can be detrimental to your well-being and mental health, so we will do our best to support you in these challenging times. Those who are already on their journey to recovery will need assistance to progress their rehabilitation. Please email us on email@example.com with any enquiry and one of our practitioners will respond to organise the best way forward. We are still here for you!
Our affiliated company, Yoga Mama Wellness is also currently offering classes, including Tai Chi, Yoga, Senior Fitness and Pilates, via the video communication platform, ZOOM, to help maintain normality in clients’ lives and to encourage regular exercise. You will share the experience in a small group from within your own home under the professional guidance of our teachers. We also offer 1:1 remote tuition if preferred. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in any of these and we will send you further information.
Our psychotherapist and cognitive behavioural therapists, Fiona Worthington and Anna Tingle, are also on hand to provide professional help with stress and anxiety management, either by phone or video conferencing. Read Anna’s tips on how to stay emotionally strong and positive alongside COVID-19.
We will be updating our website regularly with any new information and with any progress regarding our return to full service. In the meantime, we hope you will find our latest advice on the immune system and how to keep it fit and healthy useful.
Stay safe, well and strong,
