Muscle Activation

Do you ever feel like your body is letting you down? Are aches and pains getting in the way of your daily life? Whatever your age and level of fitness, muscle activation from PhysioConnect has helped patients from all walks of life to gain relief from muscular pain, improve their strength and flexibility, and feel on top of the world.

Based on the globally renowned Be Activated programme pioneered by South African physiotherapist Douglas Heel, this treatment uses brief manual stimulation of your body’s unique problem points to correct impaired muscles and promote better neuromuscular recruitment.

By activating more connections between your brain and muscle, we've seen measurable often dramatic, improvements in movement, physical performance, posture, balance and even mental wellbeing.

Take a look at our Muscle Activation page for more information, or get in touch to book an appointment today by calling call 07979 852519 or email [email protected]

“It is amazing what the body can do when you do the right thing. And when you find that right thing, the results are incredible, immediate and measurable.”
Douglas Heel, physiotherapist & founder of Be Activated

Chronic Pain Recovery

Fed up with constant backaches, Fibromyalgia, sciatica or other chronic pain conditions?

Help resolve your persistent pain and regain your life with our innovative, effective recovery treatment developed with the Stress Illness Recovery Practitioner’s Association (SIRPA UK).

Emotional trauma, established beliefs and unhelpful behavioural habits can all contribute to learned nerve pathways which maintain your persistent pain - even in the absence of any physical damage.

By identifying and tackling the issues holding you back with evidence-based cognitive strategies and lifestyle changes, you can reprogram your troublesome nerve pathways - which means no matter how severe your symptoms or how long you’ve been suffering, you can work towards a complete recovery.

Visit our Chronic Pain Recovery page for more information, or call us on 07979 852519 for your free 10-minute phone consultation.


“Because the nerve pathways involved in chronic pain are reversible, full recovery is possible…“
Georgie Oldfield, physiotherapist & founder of SIRPA UK

Physiotherapy designed around you

There’s no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to physiotherapy. Each of us has our own physiology, routines, stresses, beliefs and reflexes which shape who we are and how our bodies respond to treatment.

PhysioConnect takes a more proactive approach to tackling pain, mobility and athletic endurance issues. You’ll receive a thorough and ongoing assessment as part of your treatment; identifying the hidden factors in your life that are triggering your problems, and tailoring the therapy process to your specific needs.

PhysioConnect offers one of the few specialist physiotherapists in the UK that offers both leading-edge muscle activation and chronic pain recovery treatments - and with longer treatment appointments of 60 to 90 minutes, each session gives us plenty of time to overcome your problems together.
