Frequently asked questions
I have private medical insurance can you treat me?
YES, we can however medical insurance only covers physiotherapy sessions not sports massage.
I have never had a sports massage before, what should I wear?
You should wear clothing that means we can see and feel the area of the body we are treating, you may be asked to remove some items of clothing so we can properly treat you. Your modesty and privacy will always be respected.
I would like to book an appointment for my son or daughter who is under 18 is this possible?
Absolutely, however under 18's must always have an adult present for their first appointment
I regularly ice skate to a good level and recently the arthritis in my knees was limiting my enjoyment of this. After the MBST treatment I can skate confidently and attempt jumps so I’m very happy.
This has been the ‘Christmas miracle’ to my knees. Huge thanks to Tom and the team at Physio Fitness.
