Testimonials

“A very professional range of treatments delivered with a healthy dose of humour.”

Stephen

"Thank you, Jo and Trevor, for looking after my injured hip before and after my surgery. Your combined skills have helped me enormously!"

Stephanie

“Bridgeham: I’ve used these lovely people before on a couple of occasions, very good, very professional and make you feel welcome and comfortable and not clinical. Jo Strutt, people only need to see and speak to you and Trevor to know how genuine, kind and passionate you both are personally and professionally”

Stuart

"What an amazing experience. I have had back problems for over twenty years and have seen many osteopaths and physiotherapists including in the top neuro hospitals but have never seen such a full assessment and effective start of treatment as I witnessed when Trevor Strutt treated my son today. Cannot recommend these guys enough."

Sue

“I was recommended to the clinic by a work colleague. I had previously been referred to a back consultant and subsequent physiotherapy but was being pushed towards having a pain-killing injection (epidural), and seeing a back surgeon, which I was not keen to do. I came to Bridgeham Clinic and they found that the problem is not sciatica, as previously diagnosed by everyone else, and following a few visits, I am seeing the results, as I feel much better now. I would recommend anyone with a back or lower limb pain/ache to come to Bridgeham, as they want to get to the bottom of the problem rather than just prescribe tablets, which were not working for me.”

Philip

“I have always really enjoyed and appreciated the friendly atmosphere at Bridgeham Clinic. Despite struggling to overcome a problem with lots of treatment, I really appreciated your dedication to try and help. Everyone really knows what they are talking about, and have experienced such problems, so I always feel in safe hands.”

Belinda

“I first contacted Bridgeham Clinic because of long-standing back pain. Visits to other Osteopaths and Physiotherapists had sadly failed to deliver any lasting benefit. Staff at Bridgeham are so welcoming and friendly. The osteopaths are engaging, extremely knowledgeable and skilful. In addition to working to rectify the problems presented, they take time to explain everything in easy terms. Crucially, they work as a team with Pilates instructors and for me this has been invaluable in helping ward off back pain with regular targeted exercise. Thanks to Bridgeham clinic, I am now enjoying an active, fun-filled retirement. They even solved my intermittent knee pain and tennis elbow! I really cannot recommend them highly enough!!”

Julie

“Everyone is just so lovely! When I injured my hamstring they were awesome, all the treatment and exercises they gave me really worked and now I feel like my hamstring feel stronger than ever before. The Pilates sessions were brilliant as well! Also want to give a mention to the reception staff, especially Pauline who is one of the nicest ladies you could meet!”

Chiara

“A year ago when I first came to Bridgeham I had many health problems including severe back and sciatic nerve pain, and a very painful knee requiring a replacement. Mobility was a painful process and daily living was not easy. The wait for surgery was long and constantly delayed, which was very wearing. The staff at Bridgeham were wonderful, always positive and cheerful. They worked together to design a programme of care for me, preparing me for surgery. Through the rehabilitation process, they taught me how to take control of my body and strengthen it again, improving my mobility. I am now a different woman and so grateful for all that the team have done for me. My thanks to you all.”

Jenny

“I would recommend Selena highly, she creates a very comfortable, calm and welcoming atmosphere and I cannot thank you enough! So grateful to you!”

Millie

“In 2013 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had been fit, good diet and regular swimming. Sadly, I did not cope very well, and although the tumour was small and ultimately treatable, it completely knocked me for six. Lost my confidence, and became constantly anxious about a recurrence, and spent a long-time moping and worrying and generally feeling sorry for myself. Needless to say, I did no exercise for 5 years, and my fitness levels were not the best. Aches and pains, a bit of weight gain, back problems (all of which I blamed on my medication) Happily, last year my great friend Karen took me along to the Macmillan coffee morning at The Bridgeham Clinic, where I met Jo and Trevor Strutt and a few of the team, including lovely Pauline. I decided to try Jo’s Pilates class, and I have to say I absolutely loved it! After my first session, I booked a course of 20 lessons and I have been attending twice weekly ever since. Jo is an utterly amazing teacher, she makes the classes So interesting, and we work on different areas every week. I have felt so much better for going to classes, my confidence has soared, and I have met a lovely group of ladies, who have all been so kind and welcoming. I am now in Barbados for the next 41/2 months and am determined to carry on with my regime. Today I had my first session with my new personal trainer Kristy - and it was pretty intense- I suppose that will always be something to be expected on a one to one! I am also going to a Pilates class with some of my neighbors once a week at Holders House, here on the West Coast. So, I’d like to thank the lovely Strutts for their encouragement on my road to a proper recovery and thank them for all their marvellous work and commitment. You have changed a lot in my life for me, and I am so grateful! All that’s left to say is that you are lovely, kind, and my inspirational stars.”

Jenny

“I was initially referred to acupuncture for my back which Trevor had been looking at for a while. On my first appointment, Selena asked how she could help. I reeled off a huge list of things. Slightly conscious that Selena thought I was bonkers I stopped for a reaction. Within 5 minutes Selena had put together a chart based on my personal information and told me the symptoms were perfectly normal and made sense according to my body constitution and Chinese medicine. I couldn’t believe it! The sense of hope was immense, and I was confident that I could be fixed. Since then I have seen Selena frequently and each time, she has fine-tuned the treatment to my needs. With a mixture of treatments including needling, cupping, moxibustion and ear candle treatment I have experienced it all. I trust Selena wholeheartedly, she has a wealth of knowledge and often wonders around the room muttering to herself! She always puts together a plan of action and guides you with lots of extra self-care information for home. There is always a solution she can come up with for problems big or small. My back has improved a lot, I am still working on my digestive issues and muscles. I look forward to seeing Selena on many more occasions moving onto cosmetic acupuncture for anti-ageing treatments too. In general, I feel acupuncture will be a part of my life, even when I feel all fixed, I will still visit Selena to make sure I’m putting myself first and looking after me.”

Sonia

"Brilliant advice and sorted my back and shoulder first time!"

Paul

“This was my first appointment. The communication beforehand was excellent, from initial welcome email to the text appointment reminder and the personal phone call reminder the day before my appointment. On arrival at the clinic I was warmly welcomed. My appointment started on time. The background questioning around the history of my condition was relaxed yet thorough. During the physical treatment, I was talked through the treatment as it was applied. I felt comfortable and at ease throughout. Most importantly I came out of the session mentally and physically feeling a whole lot better. Highly impressed all round. Thank you.”

Jane

“Trevor is knowledgeable, I trust him. He is professional and also funny! Highly recommended.”

Natalie

“Having attended the Clinic for nearly two years we have found everybody to be very knowledgeable, professional and able to offer such a wide range of treatments. They have been fantastic, working with our son who had lost his mobility as a result of an illness. They have worked wonders through Pilates to regain his strength and mobility and to keep him motivated with their attitude and friendly approach. We would like to thank everyone for their support throughout our time there.”

Jean & Harry

"Osteopath Michael was amazing today! He's the nicest guy & can highly recommend him! I was so nervous, and he was totally calm and relaxed and talked me through everything, he was so thorough & ended up re-aligning my whole body! Fantastic!"

Stevie

"Had my first Pilates class with Gordon today and with many many ailments, he was very supportive and helped me so much. I thoroughly enjoyed this class and highly recommended in such a beautiful studio too, look forward to my next class!"

Louise

“I have been going to Bridgeham for Pilates and massage and am completely hooked! Friendly staff, small classes with real attention to each person and great one to one sessions on equipment. I am feeling so much better for attending and highly recommend Bridgeham.”

Jennifer

“Bridgeham clinic and particularly Jo Strutt have been lifesaving. And I really mean 'Life-saving'. A session with Jo Strutt is really really helpful and everyone at the clinic really do care about each patient. I would highly recommend them all. Thank you so very much.”

Arti

“If your “backs in a jam” and you don’t know where to turn, give Bridgeham a call and they can fix it. I would definitely have no hesitation in recommending Bridgeham clinic.”

Phil

“I signed up for Selena’s meditation course, not convinced that this sort of tree hugging past time was for me. I have to say that I was converted after day one. I left the session with a whole lot of head space. I suddenly felt like I could cope with anything and this feeling stayed with me for a few days. Selena is fantastic and will be as ‘woo woo’ or down to earth as you like. Personally, I prefer the down to earth approach. Either way I am now converted and look forward to the calm the session provides me on a weekly basis. Thank you, Selena.”

Michelle

“What brought me to Bridgeham was pain (and a recommendation from my hairdresser!). My journey has been less painful and more hopeful.”

Victoria

“I would recommend Bridgeham Clinic because of their genuine care and concern for my wellbeing and overall health. Whenever I need treatment, they go out of their way to accommodate my needs even at short notice. Over the years they have clearly got to know my problem and invariably can correct the issue with a single session.”

Chris

"The whole Bridgeham team are amazing & truly remarkable! I walked into the clinic practically in tears on Saturday morning having had a constant headache and shoulder pain for a week. After 30 minutes I felt like a completely new woman! I can't thank you all enough for managing to fix me every time I need it!"

Sarah

“I go and see them about once a month for shoulder pain and they are brilliant. I've been to many osteopaths over the years and I find Bridgeham Clinic to be very friendly with fantastic staff. I highly recommend them.”

Sarah

“Thank you to the amazing team at Bridgeham Clinic who have helped me transition from broken to fixed in a really short period of time. Brilliant teamwork from Osteopathy, Sports Massage, 121 Pilates and Group Pilates classes. Highly recommended.”

Sarah

“Can I just say what safe hands I feel I am in under your instruction. You are the first person to completely get where I am at and where I want to be. Really enjoying working with you Jo.”

Jackie

"I go to Dan at Bridgeham. He’s great and has done wonders for me"

Kerry

"Massive congratulations to all the Bridgeham Team for weathering the storm and pulling through it stronger than ever before. What a tremendous demonstration of your ingenuity, passion, versatility and tenacity."

Sarah

“Trevor Strutt is a magician! After 21 months, 2 osteopaths, 3 physios and 100s hours of rehab exercises, Trevor fixed me in 15mins. I waited 3 months and travelled 272 miles to see him and it was absolutely worth it. It was such a pleasure to meet somebody who is so clearly at the very top of their profession. He and all the staff at the Bridgman clinic are lovely. I guess that’s to be expected when they’re putting these kinds of smiles on people’s faces every day. Edit: I subsequently dislocated a bone in my wrist which was agony, and Trevor fixed it OVER THE PHONE! I am stunned, speechless and have run out of superlatives for this man. These are the kind of skills which 2000 years ago would have had you nailed to a cross!"

Google

“A year ago today I started my Bridgeham recovery journey after a horse-riding accident resulting in a broken back. I have had my ups and downs, tears and smiles but every step of the way the staff at Bridgeham have been there to support me and I couldn't think of a better place to have chosen to help aid me in my recovery. Choosing to use Bridgeham meant I was lucky enough to have the osteopaths, Pilates instructors and massage facilities all in one place and this has proved vital to my recovery. Bridgeham helped me through one of the hardest times of my life and for that I will always be grateful. Starting the journey very weak and scared to even jump on the spring board with fear I’d break again, the thought of playing a game of netball again and being contacted or riding filled me with dread but now thanks to their lovely team of staff I’m back stronger than ever playing netball division 1 standard, teaching PE and doing a job I love and back on my gorgeous horse riding and competing again. Thank you to all the staff for their constant support I honestly don’t know where I'd be without you, you not only helped my recovery but aided my overall wellbeing.”

Jen

“I was recommended to see an Osteopath because of ongoing back pain and muscle tightness. My first impression was very positive - the reception staff are welcoming, knowledgeable and put you at ease about your first visit. My appointment ran to time, Kamilla was gentle and efficient. I was impressed that she talked me through where my pain was originating and what can be done to help. She provided treatment on the day and post-visit exercises to help strengthen the area. Although I feel much better, I have no doubt I will be a regular at the clinic ... I already have my first massage booked!”

Malachy

“I have been using the clinic for a fair few years now. They have always been brilliant. I can’t fault the clinic at all. When I first came for an old neck injury, I expected on-going treatment to last for months. Two sessions and I was fixed. Later an issue with my back originally sorted straight away but eventually became a major issue and I was receiving treatment very regularly, however, with Pilates I have now become stronger. My last visit was the first in 6 months. I am not expecting to have to return again any time soon.”

Jacky

“Went to see Dan about ongoing neck and back problems. He worked out exactly what it was and sorted! This must be the happiest workplace I have ever been to, such lovely staff all round with a very informative receptionist. Booked to return for other treatments.”

Claire

“I don't know how to recommend Both Trevor and Jo more. They are so knowledgeable and helped me so much more than the NHS physio department. They explained my MRI scan to me which no one else did and then set about a plan to help me recover from my back problem. Thank you so much.”

Lindy

"I can’t recommend the Bridgeham Clinic enough. You are made to feel welcome as soon as you walk through the door. After suffering from migraines and neck pain for many years. I have now been pain free since December thanks to Dan (Osteopath) and Selena (Acupuncture) for working their magic."

Debbie

“Hey Jo, thanks again. I just went on a run and paid attention to all my patterns and it made such a difference. You gave me such great tips and I love that 5 days ago it hurt to walk and now I'm running! Big huge thank you to you and Trevor.”

Cat

“Absolutely cannot recommend Bridgeham Clinic enough, apart from the state of the art equipment, the incredibly caring and responsive team, over the past 8 years whenever I have had any issues, they have managed to quickly get me out of pain and put in place a program for me to ensure on-going maintenance and preventative care. I have recently started 1-2-1 Pilates instruction too and I am loving it, it has made so much difference to my back.”

Michelle

“I was recommended to see Trevor through one of his clients and have been with him throughout the Bridgeham journey. I have a connective tissue disorder causing subluxations and dislocations of all my joints. When I first started seeing Trevor I struggled to walk and did so using crutches. Now I can walk short distances without any aids and can safely say without his help I would never have walked down the aisle! I have recommended Trevor and his colleagues to many people and would never recommend any other professional as this is the only place, I know that does everything someone like me needs with a very friendly atmosphere. Thank you to Trevor and all at Bridgeham.”

Alex

“I was recommended to see an acupuncturist because I suffer from social anxiety including the inability to eat in public and attend parties. I couldn’t believe how quickly I felt better after just a couple of visits with Selena. The effects of my anxiety weren’t just psychological but also physical with headaches, sore back and tense muscles. After 3 years, I’m about to go on my first holiday abroad and have been out for meals and enjoy more comfortable social interactions. I’m grateful to Selena for her help and support and would recommend acupuncture to people suffering not only physical but psychological difficulties. All the staff at Bridgeham made me feel very welcome and Selena was very kind and listened without judgement. I think it’s important to say that it is a welcoming place with nice friendly helpful staff because when you suffer with anxiety that is one of the things you really need. To be able to go somewhere and feel like you can put your trust in someone is important.”

Gemma

"I have had chronic neck and jaw pain for years. Having tried numerous physios, acupuncturists etc I was ready to give up. My sister recommended Selena for acupuncture and Emily for osteopath treatment at the Bridgeham Clinic. These ladies are very welcoming, easy to talk to and very good at what they do. For the first time I can feel my body healing! I would highly recommend them for a relaxing and professional treatment."

Jemma

"There's nothing too big for the incredible Bridgeham team to try and help with. You'll always be welcomed with a smile and treatment will be personalised to you. Love it here!"

Becky

“I have been doing Pilates at Bridgeham for 4 years and the difference it has made to my body with regards to strength and movement has been incredible. I started classes to improve a chronic low back problem and it hasn't just improved it, Pilates has fixed it! What Jo does through her classes helps you understand how your body works. This in turn helps you stay fit and healthy and improves your flexibility and strength. Jo has an incredible understanding of the body and personalises exercises within the class to help specific problem areas. I work as a GP and cannot recommend Bridgeham clinic highly enough. I believe Pilates is the answer to a whole host of musculoskeletal problems as well as improving your strength, flexibility and wellbeing. If you are thinking of starting Pilates classes, look no further!”

Natasha

“I came for my first session with Rey on Friday and the man is a miracle worker. I have been able to walk on my foot this weekend without being in pain for the first time in months, I can’t believe it. I’m in again this Wednesday to carry on with my treatment.”

Nicola

“Amazing! I've been coming to Bridgeham for years and have really felt the benefits. I will always fully promote what Bridgeham Clinic stands for and what they have achieved with me and my career. I have had experience with the majority of the team and would recommend them all”

Jade

"Like everyone adjusting to the restrictions set caused a headache both professionally & personally. Seemed to just get my head around the daily changing office attendance requirements & the aisle arrows at Tesco when my back decided it wanted some attention! The pain in response to a 'pop' getting out of a chair was a nasty shock made worse by the understandable restrictions banning my GP from being able to see what physically was wrong. I struggled along with ineffective painkillers but couldn't even consider moving for six days until my lovely aunt arranged for me to meet Trevor. I was genuinely at my wits end on arrival but in just one session, he diagnosed the issues, told what I needed from my GP & started me on the road to recovery. After nearly two months full various exercises, expert manipulation & inclusive zoom rehab classes I'm now back at work full time! Frankly, I class Trevor, Michael & the whole Bridgeham team as miracle workers. I am immensely grateful for them always making themselves available to offer reassuring advice or assistance in the most painful & stressful period I've experienced. My family already recommend your practice to anyone who will listen. After seeing the service you offer first-hand, even under these unprecedented circumstances, I can understand why & am joining them! Thank you very much for everything you have done & are continuing to do!"

Jenny

“I have never had reason to question any of the elements of my experiences at the Bridgeham Clinic and have recommended the clinic to many people.”

Alasdair

“Very good osteopath, Trevor is very good too. Would recommend, other staff are very friendly and the clinic is very clean too.”

Robbie

“I would recommend Bridgeham Clinic because of their excellent understanding of my problem and the service received which includes exercises that can be done between appointments. Staff always very helpful."

Sue

“Bridgeham clinic isn’t just for Pilates princesses and sporting superstars! The range of classes on offer means there is something for everyone, whatever your age or fitness level!”

Caroline

“Really responsive and accommodating staff. They are also knowledgeable and genuinely try to fix you.”

Google

"Following a recommendation from a friend I have visited the Bridgeham Clinic for my first ever osteopath treatment today with Rey. I could not recommend them highly enough! The facility is immaculate and has plenty of onsite parking. All staff a very friendly and professional, there is a lovely feel about the place. Rey was professional and was able to share so much knowledge and info. I have had lower back troubles for years and have left...after my first session....pain free! Thank you so much to Rey and the Bridgeham Clinic!"

Laura

“I can't put into words how happy I am with the acupuncture treatment I received from Rachel at Bridgeham Clinic. I've been under a specialist for around 5 years, I've had a number of cortisone injections to help with the pain. Thanks to Rachel I'm pain-free after just 2 treatments! No more pain killers or waking during the early hours trying to find a comfortable sleeping position. Thanks to Rachel and all of the team at Bridgeham, I felt so welcome and comfortable despite Covid restrictions.”

Teresa

"Excellent treatment lots of patience, very supportive, very friendly and nothing too much trouble."

Susan

“I have been using Bridgeham for over a year and have been delighted with the service and the significant improvement in my health and mobility. I have used lots of different practices over the past 20 years and none of them have been able to offer the high level of treatment and an ongoing maintenance programme like Bridgeham does. Thank you Bridgeham”

Stuart

“I have used the Bridgeham clinic for many years and have always found their help, advice and treatment of the highest order. I have and continue to attend Pilates classes, also the circuit exercise class. These I find of great benefit to my health and wellbeing. The attention detail and service provided is excellent. I strongly recommend the quality of service the clinic provides.”

David

“Went for the first time after a recommendation. The receptionist may be the loveliest person I've encountered this month! So welcoming and made me the best cup of tea ever. The facilities are nice and clean with ample parking. My appointment was with Clemence (Osteo) and she managed to loosen up my lower back that has been tight and painful (at times seizing up). She was super knowledgeable and warm and friendly.”

Jade

"I have been suffering from pelvis and lower back pain for over 20 years, and after a few treatments with Michelle I would totally recommend her for deep tissue massage. I've never felt so comfortable. Thank you Michelle!"

Jo

"What a wonderful way to spend an hour on a Saturday morning. These meditation sessions are so wholesome and honestly leave me feeling uplifted and positive. A great way to set yourself up mentally for the week with accessible tips for everyday meditation. Thank you, Selena can’t wait for the next one."

Laura

“Bridgeham Clinic came highly recommended to me and I can see why. From the first call I was greeted by a professional and friendly voice who listened to my problem and gave me advice on which practitioner was available and who specialised in what field. I was given an appointment quickly and I have been very happy with my treatment so far. The environment is relaxed, friendly and reassuringly professional – I would highly recommend this clinic.”

Catherine

“I experienced the best after surgery treatment I have ever had at the new premises of Bridgeham Clinic. My back has responded so well that I am able to start playing golf again after a very short convalescence.”

Brian

“I was in so much pain. Pauline on Reception was absolutely lovely, made me coffee, felt at home and at ease straight away. Treatment was fantastic, felt quite emotional with the help I received. Diagnosed and treated straight away. So happy!"

Lynn

"I've had disc bulge for over a year which has caused me so much pain and discomfort. I had a few sessions with Michael to get my hips straight, then a few sessions with Gorden to get my core and leg muscles working the way I need them to. All great people with a lot of knowledge and advice. Always a pleasure."

Paul

"I had my first acupuncture session on Tuesday. The staff were so welcoming and friendly, and I was so worried about the needles etc but actually, well what was I worried about?... nothing! It was painless and in fact quite relaxing. Would recommend. Thank you as always to Bridgeham clinic for excellent service."

Lei

“I was so thrilled not only with the level of expertise and knowledge of the practitioners but their friendliness too. I was thoroughly listened to about all my little quibbles, reasons were found advised, adjusted and explained all in the one session and all with really friendly personable banter that made me feel so comfortable, I was blown away. 3 solid months of pain and I can finally move again. I feel like me again and am so happy. It’s not just the big things but all the silly little movements that you get used to cringing and preparing for pain – bending down, sneezing, stretching – all gone, I’m still surprised when things don’t twinge anymore! It’s also great to know and understand what is going in, not only is it interesting but It helps me be more conscious of changing habits to keep things running smoothly. I don’t think I can fully express how happy I am as I’ve missed out on so much of my social and physical activity over the last three months and am so excited to be getting to a point where I should be able to go back soon.”

Helen

“Over many years treatment and Pilates classes have helped to keep me fit and well. I have had excellent service.”

David

“Experience has been perfect as you'd expect from this superb team. The Covid precautions have been well thought out and well executed. Who could want for more?”

Chris

"They are excellent! Very professional but also make the treatments fun ensuring you feel comfortable and relaxed. My back has improved dramatically since coming here, always leave the practice feeling better.”

Amy

“Whenever I come to Bridgeham I feel confident that I will leave pain-free. I have never had bad service and feel very much part of a “family” that is there to improve my quality of life. Quite simply Bridgeham has changed my life for the better – without the treatment I receive there I would be in constant pain.”

Emami

"I visited the Bridgeham clinic on Tuesday and cannot stress the pain I was in with my toenails. I was greeted by a very nice helpful receptionist, I saw Janine who was by far the most gentle, kindest Foot Health practitioner ever, professional informative and a lovely lady, and above all she treated me as an individual not just another patient, thanks to her I’m walking pain free and will go back again and again! Thank you, Janine, and thank you Bridgeham Clinic."

Maria

“Definitely Bridgeham Clinic, they work wonders.”

Kate

“I can honestly say that my first session with Trevor was genuinely life-changing. I was in such discomfort and had spent a year and a half being sent from one specialist to the next who wasn't able to help at all. In that first session, he identified the potential problem and gave me a set of stretches to do that had an instant impact. I simply could not recommend him highly enough (he was recommended to me by two separate people). His personality also makes a huge difference to the sessions as he has a great way with people.”

Martin

“I have been having treatments for my upper back at Bridgeham with Saif. He has been doing a excellent job and has improved the problem significantly in just a couple of weeks. Saif is professional and explains how each treatment works. He has made me feel comfortable and at ease. I cannot recommend him enough. The Bridgeham clinic has a easy online booking system and they also send you text or email reminders. I have also been treated by Trevor in the past who is also a excellent osteopath. I am impressed by the wide range of health services provided by Bridgeham and their team and will continue to use them.”

Sophie

“I have attended Pilates classes with Bridgeham instructors for over 10 years and as a result remain flexible and fit in my 60’s. However, the biggest impact on my life during this time is the osteopathy and individual Pilates assistance I receive from Bridgeham while undergoing two hip replacements just two years apart. I know from my consultant that my hip problems were there from birth, but I was fine until 2009. Trevor knew my consultant and he was, therefore, able to provide me targeted osteopathy pre and post operations. He also worked with Jo and the other instructors, to give me targeted one-to-one Pilates exercises. As a result, on both occasions, I was back walking without any aids and assuming Pilates classes very quickly. Five years on from my second operation and I have just had x-rays to confirm everything is working well. So, a big thank you to Jo, Trevor and all the other wonderful staff at Bridgeham.”

Denice

“I remember my doctor telling me my lower lumbar pain could be bone cancer: I'd been through a lot the year before and this was the cherry on top. After scans, specialist appointments, muscle relaxants, painkillers, restricted physio (my introduction to the Clam) etc, I found myself in a surgical gown awaiting an epidural so the physio could be intensified but I REALLY didn't want this and hobbled out before the porters came to get me. Enter Trevor and Jo. Enter a non-surgical miracle. Recently, an instructor at Bridgeham commented on the flexibility of my spine - as I curled up with control and placed my head on my straight knees - this to the woman who thought she'd end up in a wheelchair! My strength, control, freedom and fluidity of movement, my respect and gratitude for my body...I owe it all to the fantastic team at Bridgeham Clinic.”

Sarah

“I’m so so pleased I decided to give acupuncture a go, I had never tried alternative medicine before, but now I will never look back! After seeing many doctors and dermatologists, who have never been able to help me, I visited Selena and instantly felt more positive within the first few seconds and it has now proved to help me massively when no one else could.”

Millie

“Bridgeham Clinic has given me, by far, the best treatment I have received, be it by Chiropractors’, osteopaths or hospitals. All the staff are extremely knowledgeable, caring and friendly. The explanation of my condition and treatment thus far has been second to none. I have already recommended this facility to others and will continue to do so in the future. I always come out smiling!”

Peter

"Couldn't recommend these guys enough! From having misaligned hips to a shoulder as tense as anything. We've been through deep tissue massage, osteopathy, acupuncture and now I'm HIIT training, improving my core and working on form and technique. Having everything in one place and knowing they genuinely care about improving your well-being makes a big difference.”

Jennifer

“I certainly wouldn't make it through an entire rugby season without Bridgeham! Would recommend to anyone! Friendly, and extremely knowledgeable.”

Sam

“Great Pilates classes, really helping with my back mobility.”

Melissa

“I just wanted to thank you for running the Healthy Living Course at the start of 2020. Since having my family, I have joined various Weight Loss Programs with the goal of getting back to my healthy BMI weight, with limited success. I realised during another workshop run with Birgitta, that perhaps my regime was not meeting all of my needs, so I decided to join this group. I really enjoyed the informal and friendly atmosphere of the group, and that Birgitta, Jo and other members of the team were so supportive. It became clear that to achieve a healthy weight I really need to address my lifestyle as a whole, including sleeping, stress and exercise, and that this will be about a rebalancing and eating for life rather than a diet. The timing was ideal following a Christmas of over indulgence. Key “takeaways” for me have been that small changes, such as reducing caffeine, reducing the sugar highs and lows and saturated fat intake can make a considerable difference. I have also felt motivated to try new foods and recipes, and plan my meals more effectively, which has led me to understand what I need to eat to have higher energy during the day and avoid that mid-afternoon slump. My weight loss has been gradual but it is encouraging to see positive results The information shared was presented clearly and in a balanced way. This is often not the case with articles in magazines, which tend to focus on one issue. If the course had been held later in the year it would have been good to include some outside exercise or walking, however, January is a good time to think about a new start. Some of the changes I am making will take longer to become habitual, but I feel like I am on the right path. Once again, many thanks!”

Madeleine

“In the last year I have been attending the clinic with different ailments. Each practitioner has been able to alleviate the problems and given me positive exercises, advice to work on. I will definitely continue with the Pilates and treatments.”

Jane

"I signed up for the weight loss course before Christmas, thinking I would need a bit of help and motivation to get going with a new resolve in January. The course was very informative and interesting, the group small, fun, friendly and non-intimidating. I particularly enjoyed the demonstration of acupuncture and try out of Pilates, which I have long wondered about. Based on my favourable experience I have since signed up for a course of Pilates classes. I was overjoyed to weigh less and with significant reductions in blood pressure and cholesterol by the end of only 5 weeks, and am continuing to embrace the changes I made. Thank you very much!"

“The treatment I have received from Bridgeham Clinic has always been of an exemplary nature and I believe the secret of their success is that all their work is client centred. What is the best outcome for the client is paramount in their approach. All the practitioners that I have met follow the same ‘client centred’ approach making the individual feel valued by listening carefully and working intuitively with clients to a common goal. I would and have recommended the clinic to anyone who might benefit from the wide range of treatments now available.”

Heather

"Bridgeham clinic has been absolutely amazing. I have been having treatment with Dan for my back and neck. I have difficult chronic conditions and the team have been amazing and knowledgeable helping support me on my road to recovery but also their insight into EDS and inflammatory arthritis and fibromyalgia has helped me to understand my conditions much better to hopefully reduce the amount of flare ups. But also to understand why they occur. I would recommend them in a heartbeat. Thanks Bridgeham Clinic!"

Lorraine

"In the 4 week course my BMI went from the overweight range to the healthy weight range. My very high cholesterol lowered to the healthy range. I gained more energy and a better mood. There are simple changes that made a big difference to my physical and mental health. Unbelievable value for money and a great support group. I now have an understanding of nutrition so I can carry this lifestyle forward."

Robyn

"A big thank you to Bridgeham for helping me with my lower back last week. I managed to complete my Spartan Run at the weekend without any pain or discomfort. My initial appt definitely freed up my back and the exercises have helped me increase my movement and made day to day activities bearable. I am seeing them again in a few weeks and I'm looking forward to finally becoming back pain-free at some point in the future. Bridgeham come highly recommend by me - their facilities are top class and their staff make you feel extremely welcome."

Dan

“Thank you so much Trevor and Jo for giving me the ability to sleep for the 1st time in weeks. Not the first time you have fixed me and no doubt not the last. Highly, highly, recommended.”

Kala

“I have been seeing Trevor professionally for some years now. He is the only person who has ever sorted my back problems out satisfactorily, in addition to other skeletal issues I have had. His “bedside” manner is sympathetic, and he takes time rather than clock watching with his patients.”

Mike

“Just had my appointment with Michael today! I have to say, amazing service all round!! Definitely going back to get stuff sorted out!”

Ellis

"My road to recovery from ankle surgery 12 weeks ago seems to have taken a good jump in the right direction. Yesterday afternoon I went to visit Steve Young, at Bridgeham, I spent an hour swearing at him and telling him I hate him while he and a colleague mobilised my ankle and helped me through some great strengthening and stretching exercises.....however, this morning, my ankle feels much less stiff than previous mornings. I am ignoring the fact that my thighs are regretting the encounter! A friendly and professional team make this place outstanding.”

Vicky

“I have spent a lot of money and time with a multitude of different clinics over the years and not one of them has come close to having the level of knowledge that the Bridgeham Clinic has.”

Stuart

“I have been going here with niggles on and off for a while now. I have an active job that requires me to wear heavy kit and I am super active so my body often needs maintenance! I see Michael on a fairly regular basis and he is fab! He makes me feel at ease as he is always friendly and welcoming. He remembers my history without having to refer to notes often and sends me away with great tips and stretches to keep me moving correctly. I’d fully recommend the clinic and definitely Mike.”

Roxie

"Fantastic service from everyone. First time coming here. I put my back out yesterday and was lucky to get an appointment with Emily. She was very thorough. Highly recommend and will definitely be coming back. Thank you."

Donna

"Lindsay identified the cause of a couple of longstanding issues immediately and explained the reasons for my discomfort in simple but thorough terms. Professional, humorous, an absolute delight to work with. I can't recommend Lindsay highly enough!"

Sarah

“The team at Bridgeham put me back together when my back "went". They took the time to explain where the problem was and talked me through what they were going to do. I had three treatments, followed by some strengthening Pilates and was soon back to normal. Thanks for being there for me!”

Pauline

“By having treatment and attending Pilates classes has helped me to keep fit. I also like the help and advice given then I have had various problems that needed medical help and the time taken to do this.”

Val

“I have been treated by Trevor and Kamilla and have only good things to report about them both. They are extremely professional, but relaxed and personable – Trevor, in particular, is brilliant at keeping me smiling through the pain! I have been suffering from a frozen shoulder, but immediately started to see improvements after the first treatment. I really couldn’t speak more highly of these two and rest of the staff at Bridgeham.”

The experience of Pranic Healing has been enlightening. The shift I’ve noticed in myself has been significant yet subtle at the same time. There’s no sudden ‘pop’ moment after a session but instead a noticeable shift away from negative emotion, an ability to cope and to remain calm and centred. I have noticed that my levels of anxiety have all but disappeared, including the physical discomfort caused by it. Instead, I am filled with a grounded energy, a quiet confidence and resilience. I have for the first time in a very long time, been able to be present, relax and enjoy myself, whereas before my negative thoughts and feelings would always be a spoiling undercurrent. I noticed the most significant shift in myself after my second treatment and am now booking my third. I have an increased awareness of negative energy, either from circumstance or other people and how that can affect me; I know that a Pranic Healing session with Jo will, without doubt, bring me back to the grounded and centred place I need. I highly recommend this treatment for anyone wanting to tackle negative feelings and make a positive change in their mindset, their body and overall well-being.

Katy

"I can't put into words how happy I am with the acupuncture treatment I received from Rachel at Bridgeham Clinic. I've been under a specialist for around 5 years, I've had a number of cortisone injections to help with the pain. Thanks to Rachel I'm pain free after just 2 treatments. No more pain killers or waking during the early hours trying to find a comfortable sleeping position. Thanks to Rachel and all of the team at Bridgeham, I felt so welcome and comfortable despite Covid restrictions."

Teresa

"I can’t recommend The Bridgeham Clinic enough. You are made to feel so welcome as soon as you walk through the door. After suffering from migraines and neck pain for many years. I have now been pain free since December thanks to Dan (osteopath) and Selena (acupuncture) for working their magic.”

Debbie

"I really enjoyed my first Zoom Pilates session! I’ll definitely be continuing through lockdown! I didn’t think I’d like it, but it really is no different to being in the studio. Still got an opportunity to speak to the others in class and Gordon engaged with everyone as the class went on. Great experience and will certainly recommend!”

Jayne

"Osteopath Michael was amazing today! He's the nicest guy & can highly recommend him! I was so nervous, and he was totally calm and relaxed and talked me through everything, he was so thorough & ended up re-aligning my whole body! Fantastic!"

Stevie

"Went for my first appointment since lockdown and felt really safe with all Bridgeham’s brilliant precautionary measures"

Caroline

"Went for the first time after a recommendation. The receptionist may be the loveliest person I've encountered this month! So welcoming and made me the best cup of tea ever. The facilities are nice and clean with ample parking. My appointment was with Clemence (osteo) and she managed to loosen up my lower back that has been tight and painful (at times seizing up). She was super knowledgeable and warm and friendly.”
