About me

I am David Williams, Qualified Physiotherapist, HCPC and Medco registered. I have a natural interest in Holistic Health. I look at the whole body picture as no two people are the same. This technique has allowed me to carry out treatments that align client to their optimum function.

I specialise in treating neuro conditions, acute sports, trauma and chronic conditions. I also work assessing elderly within their houses,  providing equipment as well as gentle exercises. I also teach Tai Chi as a way of syncing body mind and spirit.

  • Neuro conditions - strokes, Multiple Sclerosis
