Remedial Therapist

Mrs Gail Taylor is available for Remedial and Sports Therapy massage therapy via the Doctors or Reception Team, on Monday afternoons and all day on Wednesdays.

Remedial Massage is a clinical treatment, which uses deep tissue massage for specific therapeutic effect. Conditions such as back pain, neck stiffness, frozen shoulder, sciatica and knee injuries. General muscular aches and pains also respond well to Remedial Massage. Sports massage is ideal for promoting recovery from a variety of injuries including strains and sprains.

The "Fit For Life" concept is actively encouraged, both with individual patients and in group situations. Within the last 12 months initiatives have been undertaken with two separate "sheltered housing" organisations demonstrating and encouraging gentle stretching and safe exercise to assist mobility and maximise general well-being.
