Covid-19 Update: November 23rd 2020.
We remain open for business.
Based on government guidelines to date (https://www.gov.uk/guidance/new-national-restrictions-from-5-november) we are still open but advise that you speak directly with your therapist for more information. Further details can be found on our Taking care of you during Covid-19 page. All patients are encouraged to read this information prior to calling any of the Kensey Centre’s practitioners. It remains essential that you make your own individual risk assessment when attending the clinic, and this will depend on your own current level of health and the government recommendations currently in place. (See https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-on-shielding-and-protecting-extremely-vulnerable-persons-from-covid-19). It is important that you feel in charge of your own safety and welfare and are happy with what we have put in place. Please raise any concerns or questions (no matter how small) with your practitioner, you will be helping us to get to this right.
If in any doubt DO NOT attend. We completely understand if under the present circumstances you feel you need to cancel an appointment.
IMPORTANT: Please note we are extremely busy at the moment and have unusually long waiting lists so be aware that you will be charged a full fee if you fail to attend your appointment. By giving us a minimum of 24 hours notice we can rebook your slot and save you the added expense. Only exceptional circumstances will mean a cancellation fee will be waived.
Welcome to our new massage therapist Suzanne Preston who will be available on Mondays and alternate Saturdays in Room 2.

Information for each of our practitioners, their contact details and services can be found by clicking on each therapy in the navigation menu.
What is Complementary Healthcare?
Complementary healthcare is a term used to describe therapies or healthcare approaches that are used in addition to, or alongside, conventional care. Complementary healthcare may offer a different approach to mainstream medicine in that practitioners will look beyond the reported issues to consider the person as a whole. Many people find complementary healthcare can assist in injury recovery (both acute and chronic), reduce tension, stress and anxiety and help both acute and chronic musculoskeletal problems.
Please take a look at our individual pages for further information.
The Kensey Centre
At the Kensey Centre we hope you will find a calm and relaxing environment. There is limited socially distanced seating in the waiting room. Please don’t wait outside in the rain if you arrive early but remember to hand sanitise on entering the building. Sanitiser is located on the wall to your left as you enter, in the waiting room and in all of the treatment rooms.
