Home Based Physiotherapy and Holistic Therapy Service
South Manchester and Cheshire
Home Based Physiotherapy and Holistic Therapy Service. Specialist in Cancer and Palliative Care, Cancer Exercise, Cancer Rehabilitation and Prehabilitation……
My name is Simone and I own PhysioCare Holistics, a specialist Chartered Physiotherapy service providing assessment and rehabilitation either in the comfort of your own home or a clinic setting. My aim is always to provide a holistic, hands on and individualised approach to your healthcare, to support you to reach your goals and improve your quality of life
I have been working as a physiotherapist for 25 years now, working as a specialist in oncology and palliative care for last 16 years. My experience covers all areas of general rehabilitation, medical and surgical physiotherapy and women’s health. I also have experience providing specialist physiotherapy to patients receiving chemotherapy and radiotherapy and working as a Macmillan physiotherapist. I continue to work part time as a specialist physiotherapist in hospice care and I am a cancer rehab exercise instructor. My love for all things holistic led me to becoming qualified in aromatherapy, reflexology, reiki, massage, tibetan head massage, hopi ear candling and crystal therapy, and it seemed only natural to merge the two together to create PhysioCare Holistics.
PhysioCare Holistics offers both physiotherapy and holistic therapies. Assessment and treatments are available either in the comfort of your own home, or a clinic environment across South Manchester and Cheshire. Physiotherapy aims to maintain and improve physical health, promote mobility, independence and wellbeing. I am able to help you to improve or manage the symptoms of a variety of medical conditions. Alongside this I offer a specialist physiotherapy service to patients who are living with cancer or other life limiting illness, from diagnosis to palliative care.
