About Us

Based in Otley, West Yorkshire, our team of practitioners and physiotherapists has been providing physiotherapy and orthopaedic massage for many years. Our patients come to us from all over Yorkshire and beyond.

Patients visit our practice with a wide range of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction, including sports injuries. Our treatments have helped many long-term conditions including, asthma, osteoarthritis and chronic fatigue syndrome.

On your first visit to our practice, a detailed case history will be taken to allow us to create a bespoke treatment plan for you. This will take into account past medical history and a hands on assessment. We pride ourselves on this method and find it has enabled us to treat a range of patients who were unable to find effective treatment elsewhere.

We will explain all our insights and findings and discuss timescales and expectations of recovery as each person is unique. We continually reassess to ensure that the plan we devised is working for you.

Physiotherapy and orthopaedic massage aids a number of complaints including:

  • Chronic and acute back pain
  • Chronic and acute shoulder pain, including frozen shoulder
  • Arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. These we cannot cure, but can certainly ease the pain and increase mobility thus improving quality of life
  • TMJ
  • Chronic headaches
  • Neck tension
  • Sports injuries
  • Repetitive strain injury (RSI)
  • Sprains and strains
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Tennis elbow
  • Poor circulation
  • Stress relief and relaxation

We also offer Polestar Pilates classes. These classes are available to anyone but also compliment treatment to aid recovery. Sue’s classes are unique and aim to strengthen, condition, tone and support mobility.

Susan Bennett FLCSP (Phys)

Sue BennettSue qualified in Remedial Massage in 1991 at the Northern Institute of Massage gaining a solid foundation on which to build her bodywork skills. Since 1991, Sue has continued her education to include a vast range of soft tissue techniques, giving her a great knowledge of anatomy and physiology, acquiring the title of physiotherapist in 2004. Sue also gained her Higher Grade Diploma in Manipulative Therapy in 2002.

After being in practice for a number of years, Sue wanted to expand her knowledge and find a soft-tissue technique which would enhance her treatments and create greater precision in clinic. She found this by travelling to the US in order to train under leading chiropractor Tom Hendrickson in San Francisco for 7 years.

In 2009 became the UK’s first qualified Hendrickson Method® therapist and is an ambassador for the Hendrickson Method® in the UK. Sue continues to undertake mentoring from Dr Tom Hendrickson in Berkeley, CA.

Committed to continually developing her knowledge and skills, most recently Sue completed a 10 month series in 2018 in Myofascial Anatomy & Movement for Pilates & Yoga teachers with Gary Carter of Natural Bodies.

Sue has also completed training with the Nuero Orthopedic Institute to further her understanding of pain and its mechanisms. She has undertaken the following workshops: Explain Pain, Mobilisation of the Nervous System and Graded Motor Imagery.

Sue is also a teacher and trainer of physiotherapy; she writes and delivers various workshops for physiotherapy and massage therapists throughout the UK, Ireland and Canada, and is PTLLS trained. She is also a neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) practitioner.
