Who we are  

Our mission is to provide a comprehensive range of therapies, services,  current information and support for people affected by Multiple Sclerosis and other neurological conditions in the West of England in our modern premises; thereby alleviating some of their distressing symptoms and encouraging them to remain fit, active and mobile for as long as possible.

This is driving us to achieve our vision - the provision of a Centre which enables people affected by Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and other neurological conditions to have a full, meaningful and independent life.


Our treatments are provided in a warm, friendly environment and aim to help reduce the physical, emotional and psychological effects of a life with a neurological condition.

 

Situated in purpose built premises in Bradley Stoke, just off the M4/M5 interchange, we help people from the Greater Bristol Area, parts of Somerset and South Wales. We have a state of the art physiotherapy gym, oxygen therapy suite and a variety of individual treatment rooms, housing the wide range of treatments and clinics on offer. We also have a welcoming café area, providing a relaxing space to sit with a hot drink and chat with friends. All of our therapists have years of experience of working with people with neurological conditions.

We run a monthly group session, Chatterbox, which is open to all of our members. This is a great way of getting to meet new people, and have a chat about MS or life in general. 

Of course, we don’t just restrict this to monthly sessions. We always suggest you stay for a drink and a biscuit before or after a therapy, to get to know other people in the same position. In many ways, this can be just as beneficial as the therapies.

The Centre receives no government or NHS funding, we therefore rely on donations from the public, organisations and community groups to continue our vital work.

 

 

Join Us
 
We always welcome new members whether wanting to take part in our therapies or as supporters. We have a Membership Pack which gives full details and this can be downloaded from the menu bar at the base of this page.

Alternatively, why not visit the Centre, see what we have to offer, meet some of the staff and volunteers and find out how we might help you. More importantly, meet some Centre users and find out from them what keeps them coming back to the Centre. We are proud of what we do at the Centre and welcome the chance to show/explain our work to visitors.
 


 

My Story

 
Breathing pure oxygen speeds up the healing process...I first used the oxygen chamber to heal a broken thumb and believe it resulted in a return to action a week or ten days earlier than would otherwise have been the case
 
I can honestly say that without my regular visits - for physiotherapy, aromatherapy and oxygen therapy – I would not have been able to continue my very demanding job as a rugby commentator for the BBC for quite as long as I did
 
Without my regular visits for therapies at the Centre, I would not be able to keep up with my professional life.

I find that the oxygen treatment reduces my fatigue symptoms and also improves my balance.

     

Coming soon
