Your first appointment with us, whether physiotherapy, massage or reflexology, will include an assessment. The massage assessment will be shorter and will go through your current issues and determine whether you have any pre-existing medical conditions which may mean we aren't able to provide a massage. 


Your physiotherapy assessment will be split into two parts: subjective assessment and objective assessment. The subjective assessment involves taking a full history regarding your condition, previous problems in the affected area and your past medical history.


The objective assessment involves assessing your physical capabilities. Both parts of the assessment are of equal importance and only after a thorough examination can an accurate diagnosis be made

What should you bring with you?


  • Any x-rays/scans/investigations you've received 

  • Any correspondence (i.e. letters/relevant medical notes) from GP's/consultants 

  • Full list of medication you are currently taking

What should you wear?

In order to improve the accuracy of diagnosis and treatment, you will be expected to expose the relevant body part. Please bring along the following:

Men: A pair of shorts
Women: A vest top and a pair of shorts
