Claire McKenzie, Physiotherapist
I always knew I wanted to work as a therapist and even as a little girl I would help my parents with their aches and pains!
After completing my A-levels in 2002, I went straight to university and began my journey into the world of Physiotherapy. Contrary to popular belief, Physiotherapy entails a wide spectrum of training beyond that of sports injuries and massage. It includes exercise, women’s health, pain management, neurological conditions, medicine of the elderly, paediatrics, respiratory care, and provides rehabilitation for any condition that may affect your mobility.
I qualified in 2005 and since then have worked in a wide variety of areas within NHS and private settings.
It was during my time working as a Physiotherapist that I came across the fascinating world of acupuncture and have found this to combine wonderfully with other physiotherapy treatments and massage.
I have a relaxed, gentle approach and try to treat people as a whole, rather than just their condition. My service includes diagnosing a range of musculoskeletal conditions, offering advice, pain management, hands on treatment, and rehabilitation.
I strongly believe in the huge benefits that people can gain from receiving physiotherapy and complimentary therapies, and I find great satisfaction in helping people feel better, experience less pain and stress, improve their overall well being, and get back to the activities they love.
