Services We Offer


At ARC Physio, we’ll look at the site of your pain and symptoms, and also take a deeper look at the root causes. We’ll screen your movement patterns and function for signs of weakness, tightness and instability - the three main culprits of physical pain.

Following a detailed assessment, we will provide you with an individualised and realistic rehabilitation treatment programme that takes into account your lifestyle, ability and sporting activities. This may include acupuncture, hands on manual therapy, kinesio taping and recommended exercises for you to continue your recovery at home.

Whether you’re suffering from a recent running injury or you’re a gardener with back pain, we will get you back to the sports and hobbies you love as quickly as possible.


Wondering if acupuncture could work for you? It’s proven to reduce inflammation, reduce pain and stimulate the body’s own chemical processes to heal itself.

Integrating acupuncture into your treatment may enable us to improve your speed of recovery. Using just a few simple acupuncture points can relieve years of build up tightness and stiffness quickly and efficiently.

After using this form of treatment, we also give you a few simple exercises for you to continue at home to prevent the problem from reoccurring.

Assessment & Analysis

Effective assessment is the heart of a good physiotherapy practice.

In your initial consultation, we’ll spend a significant amount of time discussing your symptoms, your lifestyle and analysing your movement and physical function. This approach enables us to deal with the root causes of what is causing your pain and prevent it from coming back.

We’ll help you to understand why your injury or problem has happened, and then get started on the most effective treatment for you.

Sports Injury

Are you a keen sportsperson? Are you looking for physiotherapists who will understand you as an individual and take into account your training regime, coaching plans and the need to compete at a particular level?

At ARC Physio, we’ve worked with all levels of athletes from recreational to the international, from rugby to running and gymnastics to golf. We understand what it takes to perform at the highest level. We’ll communicate effectively with your wider support team, and enable you to get back to competition as swiftly as possible.

So whether you’re a professional rugby player or training for your first marathon, you’re in a safe hands with ARC Physio.


Designed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s, pilates is a popular mind and body exercise programme. With posture, core strength, balance and flexibility as the key elements, we will teach you to move your body in an effortless, efficient, controlled and flowing way. Tailored to the individual with either 1-1 sessions or small classes, we will show you how to relax certain muscles and switch others on to use your body effectively and efficiently.

Our physiotherapist Angela Hardie has trained with the APPI (Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute) and is able to teach both mat and equipment pilates.

Current mat classes run on a Tuesday evening in The Reading Rooms, Shipton Oliffe and on a Friday morning in The Rhodes Memorial Hall in Brockhampton.

Please get in touch for more information.


After an injury we all need some help and advice to find the fastest and most efficient way to get back to what we love as quickly as possible.

We use a signifiant amount of hands-on physiotherapy as well as alternative options such as acupuncture and complex muscle stimulators. We will also give you home exercise programmes or advice on changes to your gym sessions. We work closely with strength and conditioning coaches to provide you with the best care possible.
