Natural Elements:

Barrow’s new High Street physio business

One of the familiar businesses on High Street, Activity4All has recently changed hands and although it still offers physiotherapy, we see new faces and a different emphasis in Natural Elements.

I interviewed Annie Rea recently. She is a fully qualified physiotherapist working in this private practice that has three bases: in Groby, Desford and Barrow. Their common aim is to help clients move better, look better and feel better.

“Maybe you want to ditch the painkillers, get back to a long lost sport or just want to be able to run around with the grandchildren. We can help you,” says their website.

Three physiotherapists, Annie, Claire and Ross work in Barrow at different times so you do need to ring for an appointment (0116 367 6472) or book online from www.thenaturalelements.co.uk They offer conventional treatments, but in addition there is an opportunity to benefit from a range of complementary therapies. Annie’s speciality is medical acupuncture, which she finds can help clients experiencing morning sickness, anxiety, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) or needing pain relief. Samantha offers sports massage and deep tissue massage and Jo is the refl exologist.

Annie was born and bred in Birmingham but did her training at Glenfield Hospital before specialising in acute orthopedics in Coventry. After the birth of a son and then a daughter she worked in a private practice that included work in Loros, our wonderful Leicester Hospice. She especially enjoyed working for Loros and saw the benefits of their emphasis on complementary treatments including aromatherapy (particularly effective in the treatment of depression) and reflexology. She is keen to introduce more complementary treatments to Barrow.

Barrow Voice extends Natural Elements a warm welcome to Barrow.
