History

Following the introduction of Centres elsewhere in the country, a local group of people with MS, their families and friends were brought together by Jackie and Ray Brightwell with the support of ARMS (Action for Research into Multiple Sclerosis) a national organisation, to bring a MS Therapy Centre to the area.

Old Nailsea Centre  

The Centre was opened in Nailsea in 1985 and at first only offered oxygen treatment. Part time physiotherapy and Yoga for the Disabled were introduced later. Physiotherapy became more important and the nucleus of our now well-equipped and well-staffed physiotherapy unit was established. Counselling, reflexology and acupuncture were later added to the therapies available. We also started various NHS clinics at the Nailsea Centre, these included a MS specialist nurse, a continence advisor and a speech therapist.

The Centre in Nailsea had been expanded to take in three industrial units but planning restrictions, the nature of the buildings and the cramped car parking facilities shared with a number of vehicle repair and light industrial businesses made improving our facilities and further expansion impractical.

On the 20th February 2012 we opened our doors at our brand new, purpose built Centre in Bradley Stoke. The Centre was officially opened by The Princess Royal, Princess Anne on the 31st October 2012.
