“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 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.”
“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!”
"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!"
"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."
"Went for my first appointment since lockdown and felt really safe with all Bridgeham’s brilliant precautionary measures."
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
"I came for an osteopathy session in May. It was my first time interacting with people other than who I live with. It was weird having the session with the facemask, apron and gloves when you consider how hands-on the treatment is. But; what I will say is this. I really needed that treatment and if it meant waiting outside and being temperature checked and the PPE then I was happy with that. After all, it is two-way protection. Booking via the app is brilliant and so simple. It works a treat. I was so very glad you remained open and up and running. I loved the way you approached the diversity of delivery. I’ve no doubt it kept people in touch, which from a psychological perspective during these crazy times is so valuable. Great work as ever supporting your Bridgeham community."
“Over the years I have seen many of the team at Bridgeham for this or that, and always been looked after, and returned to good health thanks to the treatments, exercises and their overall professional knowledge. Go team at the new location, wishing you continued success.”
“I love this friendly and homely practice. I always come away from my treatment with face ache due to Trevor’s jokes and humour.”
“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 been visiting Bridgeham since August 2018, mainly for acupuncture. I first came for a free 15-minute osteopath assessment due to lower back and hip pain. However, due to strong pain I couldn’t do the advised exercises at home and was offered the opportunity to try acupuncture to ease the pain. At my first acupuncture appointment with Selena she went through my medical history and we discussed anything that might be relevant to my pain. Selena explained everything to me in a way I could understand. I had previously seen an acupuncturist in London, but they did not explain anything to me. After my first treatment with Selena I noticed a lot of difference and I felt much better. I didn’t have to take so many painkillers either. She also gave me hope for the future. All the staff at Bridgeham are very friendly and helpful. Every time I come for an appointment, I get a warm welcome. I am very grateful for Selena’s help and I can see that she is very passionate about her work. She really listens and analyses the issue to find the best treatment.”
“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.”
"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.”
“Everyone is amazing! Friendly, helpful and encouraging team of people who have helped turn me from a crock into a relatively able person!!”
“Very good osteopath, Trevor is very good too. Would recommend, other staff are very friendly and the clinic is very clean too.”
"I had constant back pain for nearly two years after an hour appointment with Dan my back feels the best it has in a very long time. Highly recommend!"
“A very professional range of treatments delivered with a healthy dose of humour.”
“A definite must if you need expert advice and treatment. Trevor, Jo and the team will look after you and ensure you are fit and well in no time; as long as you follow their advice!”
“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.”
“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 client to a common goal. I would and have recommended the clinic to anyone who might benefit from the wide range of treatments now available.”
“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.”
“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”
“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.”
"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!"
“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.”
“It is very rare that a maximum rating in every category is warranted but in this case, it is well deserved. From the moment of arrival at the clinic one is made to feel welcome and valued. The staff are very courteous, considerate, attentive and very genuine in their concern for one’s circumstances. Equally genuine is the obvious pleasure with which findings or reports of improvements are received. The treatment is always provided with kindness, care, patience, gentle encouragement and consideration for one’s comfort and feelings. Importantly, treatment plans are pursued only for as long as they provide clear benefits which, in my case, have been quite significant.”
“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!”
“Having first encountered Bridgeham Clinic in 2001 after long term lower back problems, a whiplash injury in 2000 and a diagnosis of fibromyalgia, I remain a firm believer in all that they do and am very grateful for all that I have learned about how my body works. The practitioners not only provide a range of expertise and experience between them, but they tell you what you need to know and understand to improve your daily life. A visit to Bridgeham Clinic can be a life enhancing experience, made enjoyable by the friendly atmosphere and the genuine desire of everyone to help you get better. The rest is down to you!”
“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.”
"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!"
"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!"
“Only a few appointments at Bridgeham and after years of discomfort and pain, I no longer suffer. Excellent service and well organised.”
“I saw Jo for 1:1 Pilates sessions after the traumatic birth of my first child. The intention was to get help to recover physically. What I didn't expect was a totally holistic approach to my treatment that addressed all the emotional aspects as well. I cannot say how wonderful Jo was. She drew on her own birthing experiences, her wealth of knowledge of how the body works and the impacts of pregnancy. The complete focus on me (and the baby) during each session was so far removed from the rushed and fragmented medical care I had had. I cannot recommend Jo and Bridgeham Clinic highly enough, it has truly been a life-changing experience turning to them for help.”
“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.”
“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!”
“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
“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.”
“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.”
“Apart from the friendly sympathetic and raucous banter, Trevor really understands osteopathic issues and addresses them with true mechanical correction, solving the problems. I came to him with on-going L3/L4 sacroiliac issues and they have been fixed (shame about not realising my prosthetic leg was the real issue!).”
"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!”
“Trevor is great! Also, because this is one of the most well organised and equipped osteopathic clinics I’ve visited for treatment, or indeed have worked in as an osteopath, myself!”
“Trevor is knowledgeable, I trust him. He is professional and also funny! Highly recommended.”
“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 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 came thinking I might have the problem in my knee for good and that driving would always be a painful experience. However, after just one visit Kamilla successfully diagnosed and fixed the problem. I now feel so much better.”
“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.”
“Really responsive and accommodating staff. They are also knowledgeable and genuinely try to fix you.”
"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."
“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!).”
“What brought me to Bridgeham was pain (and a recommendation from my hairdresser!). My journey has been less painful and more hopeful.”
"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!"
“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.”
“Climbing on one leg and training as much as I do takes its toll on my body. Super lucky to have the support of Bridgeham looking after me. Trev is a legend and continually fixes my back in time for my World Cup competitions. Thanks so much for getting me ready in the best condition I can be in, making it possible for me to win the first World Cup of the season last month! Here’s hoping he can work his miracles on the elbow I injured in time for the next run of competitions. Thanks guys, for everything you do!”
“The whole Bridgeham team are exceptional and I know that whoever I see I am in good hands – literally. I’ve mainly been seeing Trevor since I was a young child and won’t go anywhere else. I would recommend Bridgeham to everyone.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“It’s almost worth having something that hurts so you can come along to the clinic for the joyful experience – don’t come if hurts to laugh.”
“I saw Birgitta for an initial consultation as I was feeling tired, had poor sleep and wanted to lose weight. I had been attending other weight loss sessions but wasn’t getting anywhere. Birgitta had already gone through my questionnaire before we met and had prepared some ideas for me. During our initial consultation we discussed the types of foods I like or dislike, my eating habits and my home circumstances, which had played a large part in what and how I was eating. Birgitta explained how my blood sugar levels were playing a key part in why I was feeling tired, but then waking up in the early hours of the morning in a sweat (not hormonal). I had never known my cholesterol level as I haven’t had cause to go to my GP surgery for a very long time. Birgitta did a pin-prick test for me and I was relieved to find that my cholesterol wasn’t as high as I had imagined. I received an email after my first appointment with my extensive personal plan, together with some recipe suggestions, which I have referred back to on numerous occasions. I have been following Birgitta’s suggestions and feel so much better with just a few changes. I have more energy, sleep better, feel good in myself and have noticed my clothes fitting better. I came for the recommended follow-up with Birgitta where she went through what my original goals had been, how I had found making the changes, some further advice and recipe ideas. I would recommend a nutrition appointment with Birgitta to everyone. I love following her on the Bridgeham Facebook page, and seeing her articles in the monthly newsletter too. Thank you for your brilliance Birgitta.”
"I cannot thank Trevor enough for making me feel human again! I could not walk without pain, but just one session with Trevor and the pain has gone! He’s sorted my heel, my thumb, my neck and shoulders and my dizziness too! He really does have magic hands! Everyone is so professional and friendly, a big shout out to Pauline too always so kind, thoughtful and caring. Highly recommend Bridgeham Clinic!"
“Kamilla and Trevor are both fantastic. They both helped me at a difficult time with an injury I sustained from an accident. Also, the follow-up appointment aftercare and advice I received from Kamilla today was great. I would definitely recommend them.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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!”
“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."
"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!"
“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!”
“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.”
“Thank you to Bridgeham for being so friendly, helpful and for cracking me back into normality. I can breathe again now!!”
“There are no words to describe how grateful I am to have met Trevor and his excellent team! Pauline is ALWAYS happy to help and to get things organised. Trevor and Jo are probably the nicest people in the whole of Crawley. Thanks to Kamilla and Trevor for sorting out my neck/back pain! You guys ROCK!!! Life is now back to normal and pain-free!”
“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 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 was listened to about all my neck and back issues, along with other problems I had elsewhere. I was told me what had most likely caused the problem, and was given good instructions for changing my techniques in the gym to prevent these problems recurring.”
I had two induvial sessions of Pilates at Bridgeham clinic and it was the best £100 I have ever spent on my health! I was given a unique set of exercises for my particular issues and have completed them every day ever since. Recently I had a sore hip which reduced my enjoyment of dancing. The acupuncture session plus the exercises I was given have given me back control of my body. Thank you Bridgeham for keeping me on the dance floor!”
"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."
"Lovely friendly staff and my neck and headaches have improved after only two treatments!"
“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.”
“Not only is the clinic 100% professional it also has a fantastic home feel. The clinic staff are all very welcoming and nice people to be around, and I guess the important part is I feel a million bucks when I leave.”
"Thank you, Jo and Trevor, for looking after my injured hip before and after my surgery. Your combined skills have helped me enormously!"
“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.”
“My shoulder injury was completely cured. This was after the NHS Physio failed completely.”
“Definitely Bridgeham Clinic, they work wonders.”
“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.”
“Great Pilates classes, really helping with my back mobility.”
“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 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 cannot begin to tell you all just how valuable my visits to Bridgeham are. I never fail to leave in a much better place physiologically and psychologically. I have learned so much about my condition and can now make better choices than ever. All the team are sensitive to their client's situations and employ joined up thinking across disciplines. Could not add enough stars!”
"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!"
“Incredibly supportive and knowledgeable. As a competitive Masters athlete, my performances are still improving.”
“Would recommend to a friend, great service and my neck feels much better!”
“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 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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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 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"
"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.”
