Frequently Asked Questions
These are some of the most common questions we are asked about what we do and the services we provide. If you don’t see the answer to your question here, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Do I need a referral from my GP
No - you can self-refer to us for an assessment. However we are 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 we feel that further medical advice is required we will refer you back to the appropriate health professional. If we feel that physiotherapy is not going to benefit you we will let you know and signpost you to someone else who may be able to help.
Do you offer home visits
Yes! We can 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 get a same-day appointment
This may be possible but cannot be guaranteed. Appointments are available on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday during the daytime. Later appointments are available on Thursdays.

Will my insurance cover my visit
You will need to check this with your insurance company. PhysioCare Holistics is always happy to provide a receipt of payment for your treatment for you to send to your insurance company.
Can I have a holistic treatment if I have cancer
Yes. Cancer is not a contraindication to holistic therapies and they can be highly beneficial in treating both the disease itself and symptoms/side effects of treatments such as chemotherapy. However, 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.
What should I expect on the first session
Your first visit will incorporate an initial assessment and advice/treatment. Your goals and expectations will be discussed together and a treatment plan established,
Do you have professional registration
Yes I am DBS checked and a member of the Chartered Society of physiotherapists (CSP), registered with The Health and Care Professions Council (HPC) and a member of the International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists (IFPA). I am also a member of ACPOPC - The Association of Physiotherapists Working in Oncology and Palliative Care where I am the NW regional rep.
