Here at Torbay Massage, Physiotherapy and Wellbeing we specialise in Women’s Health physiotherapy, the only private physiotherapist who specialises in Women’s Health in the Torbay area (as far as we’re aware).

1 in 3 women in the country are affected by some kind of pelvic floor dysfunction and rarely seek help due to embarrassment or thinking their symptoms are ‘normal’ either because they are getting older or because they have had children.

“I approached Sarah for help with an issue I had been experiencing for a number of years, which numerous doctors had been unable to diagnose. Having put it down to ‘women’s issues’ for some months, I realised I couldn’t continue with the pain I was suffering and sought Sarah’s advice.

At our first appointment I was immediately put at ease, as I was concerned at approaching her with this mystery ailment, and within the hour she had identified problems and suggested a course of treatment and exercises for me to do at home. At last I felt I had an answer to the issues I had suffered with for so long. Not only did Sarah rid me of this pain within only a couple of treatments, she also offered invaluable advice about other related issues which I will always be thankful for. Sarah is hugely knowledgable, approachable, friendly, warm, and a credit to her profession. I am recommending her to my friends and family as I know she will be able to solve their issues too. Thank you for everything Sarah, your treatments and advice have been a life changer for me.”
