Lifestyle changes of exercise & diet should be tried first

“People at risk of heart disease and strokes should address lifestyle factors such as exercise and diet before resorting to medication therapy”.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guideline recommends that people at high risk of cardio-vascular disease should engage in activity weekly of

  • At least 150 minutes moderate intensity aerobic exercise
  • Or 75 minutes of vigorous intensity aerobic exercise
  • Or a mix of moderate and vigorous aerobic activity.

Lawrence and I have been patients of Gill as a physiotherapist for about seven years and have also attended her Pilates classes for about five years.

As a physiotherapist she has been exceptional. She is highly qualified and has a high degree of clinical proficiency as well as being very caring and sympathetic, which we both find very reassuring. I had surgery on my shoulder after which I was unable to raise my arm properly. With the help of Gill’s treatment my shoulder has recovered 100% of its mobility. Lawrence has had 5 major spinal operations over the last two years and Gill has been invaluable over that time. Between each operation she has maximised his recovery and given him treatment and exercises to minimise muscle wastage. We are confident that with her help he will make a full recovery.

We have both attended her Clinical Pilates classes and have found them extremely helpful. Gill uses the APPI method of Pilates and always ensures that each member of the class only takes any exercise to a level appropriate for them. I now attend two classes each week and would do more if I could.

I have recommended Gill to several members of my family and friends who have all been more than happy with the treatment they have received.
