Helen’s main interest outside of physiotherapy is equestrian, competing in show jumping. Helen is taking additional training at the moment to become a Chartered Equestrian Physiotherapist, this training requires a lot of commitment, but eventually her dream is to work part time treating people and part time treating horses.

Tracy Brown

Tracy is our massage therapist, focusing on the deeper remedial massage or the more invigorating sports massage. People often don’t know if they need to see a Masseur or a Physiotherapist. The basic answer is, if you suspect you have an injury or you want more detailed advice then it is a physiotherapist you need to see, if you’re not injured but your muscles feel stiff or tired then a massage may be better for you.

If you are unsure we are always more than happy to discuss it with you. Tracy has a real passion for her work and we have some great in-depth clinical discussions working out what is best for our clients and where the masseur and the physiotherapist can work best together for the benefit of the client.
