How long will the treatment take?

How many sessions will I need?
This all depends on how long you have had the problem for and what therapy you receiving. Your therapist should discuss with you on your first appointment how many sessions they think you may need and explain the most appropriate interval between treatments. They will usually reassess this interval each time you visit based upon the progress that you are making. Sometimes you may only need one session whilst sometimes you may need a course. All decisions are taken jointly between you and your therapist. Our practitioners work in partnership with their clients and the care that you receive is tailored to your individual needs.
How much will treament cost?
We aim to help you back to health with as few treatments as possible – this could range from 1 session to a course of treatment over a number of weeks. Each case is different so your therapist is the person to discuss this with.

“The overall experience was excellent, from booking the appointment to receiving treatment. I was able to obtain an appointment the following day which was very much appreciated. Abby was very professional and offered me advice on exercises and techniques. Feeling much better and less pain.”
“I recently visited The Theale Wellbeing Centre to receive treatment for an existing whiplash injury. I suffer from Cervical spodylosis and at times require treatment to free up and release the vertebrae thus preventing excruciating pain. I met with Abbi who was very professional and knowledgeable, offering me advice on exercises and posture techniques. Post treatment, my headaches had ceased and less pain experienced in movement of my neck. Fully recommend.”
