Dancers Clinic

Take control of your pain now

No matter whether you dance for pleasure or you’re a professional performer, we understand the frustration and disappointment you feel when you suffer pain, experience a one-off injury or endure a recurring problem. Unfortunately, this stuff’s pretty much par for any dancer or performer’s course, but the right treatment now will keep you performing in the long-term. Even if you’re lucky enough to be pain-free right now, it may be that you’re rehearsing for an upcoming event or you simply want to improve your overall performance? Either way, we understand and you’re now in the right place.

Great reasons to choose our Dancers and Performers Clinic

  1. Our therapists 'get' your problem, because they are trained in the specifics of dancers and performers bodies.
  2. We have therapists who specialise in treating dance and performance-related problems, to get you pain-free in the shortest possible time.
  3. Our therapists will refer you to the right therapies for you, including pilates, yoga and massage to make sure you get the long term benefits you need.
