Therapies

We deeply value the many benefits brought to our Members by taking part in a range of one-to-one and group therapeutic physical activities, exercises and massage, led by our licensed and highly experienced physiotherapist with whom we work in partnership. The range of services provided extends from body massage to hydrotherapy, exercise and movement and referrals for walking aids.

Physiotherapy 

Physiotherapy is an integral treatment for the maintenance of our Members' independence and good mobility.

Regular sessions can be an important step towards increasing strength, reducing joint and muscular pain, improving circulation and building confidence. They can also help prevent or reduce physical problems and assist with ailments such as arthritis, osteoporosis, Parkinson's and incontinence. 

One-to-one physiotherapy and group classes are available on a weekly basis. 

 

Massage and Reflexology

Massage can be very beneficial in helping to both alleviate and improve the aches and pains associated with ageing. It has been shown to help with muscle and joint pain, as well as symptoms including digestive disorders and disturbed sleep. 

Insofar as the elderly are concerned, massage also naturally complements light exercise and can help alleviate stress. For people living with Dementia and Alzheimer's disease, is a low-risk intervention that can also help with anxiety.
