Physiolistic were delighted to officially open and celebrate at their new facilities at Henley Rugby Club with owners Angela and Clint Botha being joined by Mike Trethewey, Chair of the Rugby Club and the Mayor, Councillor Julian Brookes to cut the ribbon (physio elastics) on Monday evening.
Angela Botha started the business 10 years ago in her house in Henley, before moving to premises on Greys Road, behind the parade of shops in 2007. They had to leave the Greys Road site at the end of last year as it is being developed for housing. The new facility at Dry Leas is being sublet by Henley Rugby Club with the approval of Henley Town Council who own the site.
The new facility now has six consulting rooms and a 1:1 gym room. It also offers a much wider range of services which not only includes physiotherapy but acupuncture, oesteopathy, nutritional therapy, pilates and counselling and pyschotherapy with Martin Swinburn. Leading consultants have regular clinics too at Physiolistic including Mr Nev Davies, a children and knee orthopaedic specialist and Mr Nick Gallogly, a gait analysis and orthotics Consultant who works with the GB rowing team, London Irish RFC, Reading FC and the GB Paralympic team.
Clint Botha, said, “This new facility wouldn’t have been possible without the huge effort of Angela as Clinical Director to drive the business. Her determination, her passion and her compassion for patients has been the driving force for Physiolistic. It is absolutely fantastic now that she is being supported by a team that shares that ethos and provides that exemplary approach to patient care. We’re pleased to have attracted some leading orthopedic specialists to have consultations from this clinic as well. A special thank you to Henley Rugby Club in particularly Chris Nixon and Mike Trethewey for their outstanding support and to Mayor, Councillor Julian Brookes and to the whole of of Henley Town Council who came to the decision to support a local business and we absolutely believe that we have such a positive impact on the local community and thank you for supporting us and bringing this to fruition.”
Mike Trethewey said, “It is a great strategic alliance to have Physiolistic here on site and be part of new facilities at the club.” The Mayor said, “Thanks to the Henley Rugby Club for proposing this great new facility. I wish them all the best.”
