Karen’s interest in feet developed following 15 years on the beat as a Police Officer. She knows how important it is to take care of and look after your feet. Karen offers appointments at our Sedgefield and Belmont practice on Mondays.

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.

For those of you who haven’t yet met Helen, she worked with us at our Sedgefield practice before taking a two year break to spend some time travelling, doing charity work and more. She qualified with an MSc in physiotherapy from the University of Teesside in 2012.
