“A very helpful welcoming receptionist in addition to my expert therapist and a lovely space for treatment. What more could a sore back patient need? Instant access to old notes too.”
“Trevor is knowledgeable, I trust him. He is professional and also funny! Highly recommended.”
“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.”
"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."
“2 years ago, before I was recommended Bridgeham clinic my back had reached a point where it was affecting day to day activities let alone anything physical that stressed the back. I really appreciate all their help and feel my problems were caught and corrected just in time and now, I just visit every three months to keep things on the right track and couldn’t recommend highly enough.”
"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!"
“My shoulder injury was completely cured. This was after the NHS Physio failed completely.”
"Big hug and thank you to Trevor. Came in yesterday with labyrinthitis, a condition I have had several times before and taken me weeks to get over. I was extremely dizzy and nauseous. Trevor suggested and then performed a special manoeuvre on my head and neck and today I really can't believe the difference. Not dizzy at all. Amazing!"
“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.”
“Wonderful to feel painless movement again.”
“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!”
“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.”
“Good morning Trevor, Jo and all the team at Bridgeham clinic! I want to say a huge thank you to you all. I am a new woman now pain free. I really appreciate it. I can't believe it!!”
“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.”
“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.”
“In May last year I hurt my left shoulder after my large Old English sheepdog decided to go in the opposite direction to me while on the lead! I received excellent treatment at Bridgeham from Pete and Kamilla and gradually began to recover. However, what made the biggest difference to my recovery were the Pilates classes at Bridgeham. Aleisha and Jo knew exactly what was wrong with me and everything I did in class was tailored to help me both strengthen and improve the mobility in my shoulder. It was so good to be doing something positive to help myself, and I could do a lot of the exercises at home as well. If I was worried at all about my shoulder one of the osteopaths would check me over before I went into class. It is this joined up approach to treatment which makes Bridgeham such an amazing place. I can’t recommend highly enough the combination of osteopathy and Pilates classes, which continues to keep me mostly pain free and to improve both my muscle tone and my posture. It is also a great way of relieving stress and tension."
“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.”
"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!"
"Brilliant advice and sorted my back and shoulder first time!"
"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.”
“Thank you all for help and advice, more importantly fixing me when needed. Highly recommended.”
“Trevor has been my osteopath for at least the last 12 years and comes highly recommended. I go on a regular basis to keep my back in good shape. My job as a gardener puts a lot of strain on my back especially my shoulders and between Trevor and the team, they keep me feeling great. I love going to Bridgeham, all the practitioners and reception staff are very friendly and are very happy to help in any way they can. I thoroughly recommend Bridgeham in every way.”
"Thank you, Jo and Trevor, for looking after my injured hip before and after my surgery. Your combined skills have helped me enormously!"
“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.”
"Excellent treatment lots of patience, very supportive, very friendly and nothing too much trouble."
“I started coming to Bridgeham in September 2016 after suffering pain in my calf from running. In October 2016 I found out that I got a place in the London Marathon this April! I had regular (monthly) sessions with Steve leading up to the run. Yesterday I completed the Marathon in 4 hours and 23 minutes, with absolutely no issues at all! I would really like to thank Steve (and Bridgeham) for getting me through the experience. I was running for St Catherine’s Hospice and have raised nearly £6,000! The team at Bridgeham were part of that journey. Thank you.”
“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.”
“Not only did they diagnose and sort out the issue with my trapped nerve, I was also given excellent advice on posture and exercise-related techniques that I should use to try to stop this happening again. They have an excellent knowledge of bio-mechanics which was the thing that impressed me the most. Working to improve deficiencies and wrong postures etc. to try to prevent it happening again. As they say, prevention is better than cure!”
"Lovely friendly staff and my neck and headaches have improved after only two treatments!"
"My skin has improved dramatically since Bea recommended; I completed one of her recommended “do at-home finger prick” blood tests to check for food intolerances. Fascinating blood test results have seen me now removing gluten, wheat, sugar, caffeine, and dairy however the surprises were needing to remove egg white, aloe vera and sunflower seeds too. I have made some simple changes to my meal planning which was easier than expected and can completely feel the difference. Less bloating, no flushes, better sleep, improved digestion, heightened taste buds, less eczema and psoriasis and more importantly a feeling of being empowered to make well informed food choices for my wellbeing forever. I now really enjoy the occasional decent cup of coffee because I can. Thank you, Bea, for patiently educating me and never judging me. You’ve made such a huge difference to how I feel.”
“To quote a song title my experience at the Bridgeham Clinic was “A perfect 10”. Trevor, my practitioner, is awesome and a God amongst men (his osteopathy is coming along nice too!).”
“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.”
“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.”
“I’ve been using the services at Bridgeham for nigh on 15 years. Being able to combine treatments such as osteopathy and acupuncture with an effective exercise programme has helped me to keep on top of the ageing process! The new facilities at Bridgeham are wonderful! Having all the classes and treatments under one roof is very convenient. Trevor, Jo and the rest of the team certainly make you feel part of the Bridgeham family.”
“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.”
“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.”
"Bridgeham has been a brilliant support through this time in many ways. I signed up to Jo’s online classes right from the start and have taken part in two Buff Bones classes most weeks. They have been so easy to access and apart from a couple of internet problems they have gone brilliantly! It is almost like having Jo in the room with you, she can see exactly how you are moving and correct anything that you are not doing right. She is always really upbeat and positive and also works us really hard! My dog has put in a few personal appearances and Jo and Trevor’s dog is a regular participant. It is also so good to see the same people in class every week, some old hands and some who have joined because it’s now online. I have also been to the clinic as the result of two falls which damaged my ribs and lower back. The setup there is highly professional, and I felt very safe. Both Trevor and Dan looked very fetching in full PPE! Being in lockdown and in pain is not much fun and both they and Jo have made a huge difference to both my physical and my mental wellbeing during lockdown. Thank you Bridgeham!"
“Great clinic! Staff are always warm and friendly, the fact they offer a number of different types of treatment that all complement each other and the practitioners-work together to give the best results they can. Couldn’t recommend higher, all my family comes here.”
"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."
“I have spent the last 20 years dealing with neck pain after a car accident. I have been using deep heat and taking co-codimol all this time. My husband won a voucher for your clinic for a treatment at the Ifield May Fayre. I made the appointment and met Ray, well what more can I say, had two sessions with him and I am pain-free. He made me feel so relaxed and he has made my life so much happier. Thank you Rey.”
“Really responsive and accommodating staff. They are also knowledgeable and genuinely try to fix you.”
"I can't recommend Bridgeham enough. I've been using them for a few years, for pretty much all their services. So great to have so many health options all in one place. Such a lovely atmosphere, so warm and friendly, every time. A really great "welcome to the family" kind of feeling on every visit. Every member of the team (seriously, all of them) is so bright, friendly, and super knowledgeable. You know you can go in and book a treatment with anyone and get the same high level of care all round. Just had the best massage and super interesting chats (thanks Michelle!), can't wait for my next visit!"
“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.”
“I love this friendly and homely practice. I always come away from my treatment with face ache due to Trevor’s jokes and humour.”
“Fantastic clinic and amazing service! From the second I walked in I felt extremely welcomed by the receptionist. The session with the Osteopath was great! They seemed extremely knowledgeable with my knee pain and I'm already feeling some improvement! I would definitely recommend!”
“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?”
“Lovely staff who really helped me with my sore back. My wife had treatment too and it really helped. Thanks for all your help!”
“I just want to thank you for making such a quick appointment for me today and the great work Dan did on my back. He was friendly knew exactly where the problem was and explained what he was going to do. The practice was clean and cleaned while I was there. It has to be one of the safest practices around. Thank you so much”
"I can highly recommend Bridgeham Clinics services to everyone. After my motorcycle accident, Trevor got me all straight and I am now able to lead a normal life."
“Truly can't recommend this place enough, absolutely heaven sent!! I had a car accident back in 2009 and sustained a burst fracture of my lower spine, resulting in nerve damage to my legs also. After surgery, and months of physio, I still didn't seem to be making the improvements I had hoped for. We came across Bridgeham Clinic which to me was the last resort before being advised for further surgery due to lack of progress. After my first session with Jo, I cried in pure delight at how I felt almost 'normal' after one session!!!! After that, I never looked back. Not only did Bridgeham Clinic give me hope, but they also gave me my life back, a better one in fact!! Thanks to Jo and Trevor for being my guardian angels, don't believe I could have got to where I am today without you!”
“Very informative and professional. Quick to call back in regard to initial enquiry and offered appointments with various therapists/osteopaths very quickly. I was given constructive suggestions to help reduce the possibility of a sore back again and it was suggested that regular massage would help with the knots etc. Lovely staff very well recommended and will definitely be returning. I have already been telling all the family about the excellent service.”
“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.”
“Very good osteopath, Trevor is very good too. Would recommend, other staff are very friendly and the clinic is very clean too.”
“Great Pilates classes, really helping with my back mobility.”
“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.”
“Would recommend to a friend, great service and my neck feels much better!”
“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!”
“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!”
“A very professional range of treatments delivered with a healthy dose of humour.”
“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.”
“I cannot recommend Bridgeham enough. Amazing people who listen and give you the time needed to help with the symptoms you arrive with... to the relief you leave with.”
“Took my 13-year-old son to Bridgeham yesterday with some concerns about his heel which has been hurting for a few weeks now. Clemence was fantastic and checked everything over for him and gave us some very good advice on footwear and exercises for him to do. Nothing seriously wrong thankfully, just a growth spurt combined with a lot of football training. Such valuable advice - especially as it was a FREE 15-minute appointment! Shows they really care and Bridgeham is not just in it for money. We will definitely be back as proper customers. Cannot recommend enough."
"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."
“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!!”
“Trevor is super professional osteopath, I feel that I can completely trust him, he really knows what he’s doing, understands the reasons for the pains and discomforts, he listens, explains everything always with a lot of patience and a great sense of humour. Above all, definitely helped a lot, myself and a few of my dear ones. I am truly recommending Trevor as the best osteopath I know.”
“Was in so much pain. Pauline on Reception was absolutely lovely, made me coffee, felt at home and at east straight away. Treatment was fantastic, felt quite emotional with the help I received. Diagnosed and treated straight away. So happy!"
“Just had my appointment with Michael today! I have to say, amazing service all round!! Definitely going back to get stuff sorted out!”
"Trevor and his team have been utterly amazing. Highly knowledgeable, deeply caring and they treat you as a person not a number to be processed. They've totally turned around my recovery and I can't thank them enough!"
“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.”
"I go to Dan at Bridgeham. He’s great and has done wonders for me"
“I came to Bridgeham as I had some health & wellbeing cover through work which included massage and various treatments. All has been great! I had a consultation, osteopathic review and a relaxing body massage. Due to having recently had breast cancer and having lymph nodes removed through operation, this was very helpful with regards to lymphatic drainage and I was reassured throughout. All practitioners listened and all treatments have been beneficial. Thank you.”
“I cannot more highly recommend Trevor and his team. Niggles I've had for years have disappeared and I wouldn't hesitate to go to them with any future injuries.”
"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.”
"Hi! A big thankyou to Trevor for getting me an appointment today and to Emily for working on me, feel 100000000000 times better thank you so much!"
“Thank you to Bridgeham for being so friendly, helpful and for cracking me back into normality. I can breathe again now!!”
"I can’t recommend Bridgeham enough. I had been suffering with a very stiff painful back and after one session with Eva the difference is truly amazing. Thank you, Eva, for my first morning waking up pain free!"
“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.”
“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.”
“Over many years treatment and Pilates classes have helped to keep me fit and well. I have had excellent service.”
“A year ago, I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer at age 41. Both surgery and the recovery were good, except my Parathyroid never “woke up” so I have been suffering with hypocalcaemia ever since, which has seen me in A&E a few times needing calcium transfusions. Last November I tried to join Pilates as after my first class I felt very welcome and my body responded well, but as life happens, I needed 2 sets or Radioactive Iodine to ensure all my Thyroid and Cancer cells were gone, which meant my mind and my body were all over the place. It wasn’t until 2 months ago that I remembered they offer acupuncture at Bridgeham, so after speaking to Selena over the phone I booked my first session with her. Oh My God! I am so happy I did. I have been seeing Selena for 4 sessions now, one every 2 weeks, and after 3 sessions my calcium levels have gone up, my back pain is almost gone, and many of the other side effects of all the medication that I take daily are starting to fade as well. I know a lot of people do not believe in Eastern medicine, but it does work. Selena is an excellent professional, she listens and cares about you so much that the whole experience is fantastic, and for those of you scare of needles, it does not hurt at all, and the results are worth it.”
“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.”
“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!”
“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.”
"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."
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
"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."
“What brought me to Bridgeham was pain (and a recommendation from my hairdresser!). My journey has been less painful and more hopeful.”
“I visited Bridgeham initially while I was pregnant with my 2nd child to try and avoid some of the aches and pains, I had after my first. Between Mike (osteo) and Michelle (massage) I was really happy with how my back coped with the strains of carrying a heavy toddler and the bending of sitting feeding a newborn. I carried on seeing Michelle for maintenance and mentioned that my lower back is always very tender - more a note for her to be kind to me! But after just 4 weekly sessions the intense ache I have had for the best part of 15 years (especially after walking or standing for more than about 2hrs) has gone, and I can now sleep on my back for the first time in 15yrs too! Thank you Bridgeham!”
“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.”
“I have a connective tissue disease known as Ehlers Danlos syndrome type 3. I always have dislocations and subluxations. I also suffer from functional scoliosis. For many years now I have gone to Bridgeham Clinic to see Trevor and without fail he has always managed to put me back together. Without this, I would have been in a wheelchair by now. Bridgeham Clinic has given me the family and reasonably normal life I have now. I would like to say thank you.”
“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.”
“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.”

“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.”
“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!”
“I really benefit from the Pilates classes provided plus to 2:1 and circuit sessions. They provide an excellent way of keeping and improving my mobility. Additionally, helping me to know how to help myself with the niggles that come along from time to time. The smaller class size means that one gets the correct level of guidance and help. The trainer’s awareness of an individual’s strengths and limitations ensures that the exercises are suitable. The training is delivered in a friendly and cheerful way which makes it not only beneficial but an enjoyable experience that is sometimes challenging “which is great” and I look forward to the next class. The rest of the services delivered by the clinic are excellent and delivered by a skilled staff team including the reception ladies. I would recommend Bridgeham Clinic to everybody for the service, help and advice they provide.”
“I’ve been going to Bridgeham clinic and they’ve sorted out my back pain, got me using my knee properly after ACL surgery and straightened me out!”
“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”
"Would highly recommend Bridgeham practice, staff are all lovely and extremely helpful and knowledgeable. For years I have had ongoing pain in my back and pelvis and within a short amount of time I feel like a new woman. Thank you to Pauline for referring me and a massive thanks to Kamilla and Trevor for sorting my back and pelvis out for me today, I'm now feeling very relaxed!"
"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."
"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.”
"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!”
"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!"
"Went for my first appointment since lockdown and felt really safe with all Bridgeham’s brilliant precautionary measures"
