At Active Health we provide health care of the highest quality. Our team is enthusiastic and caring and has diverse experience and expertise with the aim of reducing your pain, increasing your vitality and maximising your quality of life. Our holistic approach to health means that we focus on your wellness and not only your injury. Our professional therapists will tailor your treatment to your individual needs and goals.
Physiotherapy is currently available for face to face and video consultations and podiatry is available for face to face consultations in our clinic. We are taking all recommendations and guidelines very seriously as your safety and ours is very important to us. If you would like a copy of our standard operating procedures, please get in touch. It is continuously updated as guidelines change.
Following government and our governing bodies (Chartered Society of Physiotherapy) guidelines, prior to an initial physiotherapy consultation (even if you have been for a treatment pre Covid times), we will need to do a telephone consultation to do as much of the assessment prior to you coming to the clinic. We will also discuss the risks of attending in person and decide if an in clinic appointment is appropriate. We are also able to do a video consultation where we can fully assess, advise and prescribe exercises for you if you’d prefer not to come into the clinic.
We are looking forward to welcoming you back to Active Health for Massage, Craniosacral and Reflexology treatments on the 26th of April. Similarly, prior to your first post Covid times massage and following SMTO guidelines, your therapist will do a telephone consultation with you. All other therapies require a screening questionnaire which will be emailed out to you to complete prior to your appointment.
The Active Health Team
Care, treatment and advice at Active Health
Active Health was established in 2012 as we wanted to be able to help our patients achieve their goals and help reduce pain with excellent assessment, treatment, advice and care. Our clinic is based at 2 Polwarth Gardens, Edinburgh, EH11 1LW where we have 4 private treatment rooms and a small Pilates/exercise studio which can also be used as a treatment room. We like to ensure a professional yet friendly and relaxing environment for all our patients coming for a treatment at our Edinburgh clinic. Two of our treatment rooms are accessible for wheelchairs users or people with mobility problems, so please let us know when booking if you require one of these rooms to ensure we allocate the correct room.
We believe in providing our patients here in Edinburgh with the best possible care, treatment and advice. Our physiotherapy treatment is based on sound clinical reasoning and evidence. With our holistic approach to treatment, we listen carefully to your concerns and aspirations and work with you to relieve you of pain and achieve your goals. We prepare an individual treatment plan to address your needs, and after this has been discussed with you, we may if appropriate, include other therapists in your treatment plan.
Injury is not a requirement in our clinic!
You don’t need to be injured or sore to come and see us at our Edinburgh clinic. We have a great team of therapists who can give you a relaxation massage to help rid your tension and stress. Our remedial massage therapists are excellent on working on new problem areas and injuries. They are also fantastic at keeping on top of old injuries, including posture related problems, and many patients enjoy a regular massage as part of a maintenance programme. Our podiatrist will keep your feet in tip top shape and work with you in keeping your hard-working feet in great condition. She can also advise on footwear and make bespoke orthotics to support your feet. Our craniosacral therapist can help with many things including sleep problems and anxiety. Our reflexologist can invigorate your immune system and reenergise your body as well as your mind, and our health coach will support you to achieve your health goals. Our Pilates instructor who is also a physiotherapist, gives small tailored 1 to 1 matwork classes in our Pilates studio.
If there are any referrals between therapists at Active Health Edinburgh, with your permission, we will discuss and ensure that a good handover is given so that all therapists are working to achieve your goals.
All our therapists are members of their relevant professional bodies and are all highly trained and skilled in their field ensuring you receive excellent treatment, care and advice.
