Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a referral from my GP
No you are able to self refer for an assessment. However I am happy to receive a referral from your GP or other health professional and will keep in touch with them regarding your progress as appropriate. If I feel that further medical advice is required I will refer you back to the appropriate health professional. If I feel that physiotherapy is not going to benefit you I will let you know and signpost you to someone else who may be able to help.
Do you offer home visits
Yes PhysioCare Holistics is able to provide assessment and treatment in the comfort of your own home. If you find accessing physiotherapy services difficult or if you would simply rather be treated in your own home then this is possible. Areas covered include South Manchester and Cheshire. Please note that a surcharge may apply to cover travel costs, set up time and time taken to travel to and from your house. Clinic appointments are also available at a couple of locations. Please get in touch to find out your nearest clinic.

Can I have a holistic treatment if I have cancer
Yes cancer is not a contraindication to holistic therapies but care needs to be taken particularly during cancer treatment. As a specialist physiotherapist in oncology and palliative care I have both the skills and expertise to offer safe treatments during cancer treatment.

Your first visit will incorporate an initial assessment and advice/treatment. Your goals and expectations will be discussed together and a treatment plan established,
