For the task I charged you with - facilitating an anxiety-free build-up to the holiday, journey and arrival - I am pleased to report that I followed instructions to the letter and you scored 100%. If anything, I was a bit too relaxed!!!!
I have known Richard for some time and find him very professional and caring. He is very easy to talk to and will listen to what you have to say when I have to go to see him he is friendly and chatty and just a very nice man doing an excellent job.
I am no longer a smoker. The hypnosis gave me the belief I could control the desire to smoke.
Our elderly mother, who has Parkinsons has benefited greatly from the treatment and practical advice received at home. She looks forward to her treatments(from Meryl) which are professional, friendly and caring . We could not ask for more.
I was referred (by BUPA) to the Wimborne Clinic following a brain haemorrhage. With Meryl Goddard as my physio and Margo Stephens as my speech therapist, my progress has described by my Consultant as ‘remarkable’ and by my GP as ‘brilliant’. Without them I wouldn't be where I am today.

What is Podiatry & BIomechanics?
Biomechanics is the study of mechanics in relation to human movement. Podiatrists deal with particular biomechanical problems of the feet and lower limbs. They look at the way symptoms, problems or injuries occur as a result of the way the musculo-skeletal system works. They apply the principles of mechanics to unravel the reasons behind many common painful problems that affect the lower limb and improve the efficiency of movement and restore balance when walking and running Biomechanics is the study of mechanics in relation to human movement.

Treatments typically include a combination of advice, exercises, stretches, and/or orthotics. An orthotic is a device rather like an insole that is worn inside the shoe and changes the way the foot works. In doing so, can influence your posture. Orthotics can be made for specific purposes, such as sports, or for general wear, or a combination of both. They can be made for occupational footwear or for leisure and can even be made for shoes with heels. You can discuss your requirements, choices and preferences to get the best possible orthotics for your specific problems or needs. Orthotics may also help to avoid problems encountered through ‘wear and tear’ such as arthritis and can slow the development of problems related to abnormal mechanics, such as bunions.
Ian qualified as a podiatrist 2000 and has a special interest in biomechanics. He has practiced this area of expertise both for the NHS and in private practice and has published research in his field.
