Face to Face Classes

We are  really pleased to be trialing a weekly Face to Face PDPower Class in a new, larger venue to help with social distancing.  It will be great to return to real classes and help people make the most of exercises.  The new venue at Jubilee Hall, Scout Hut Amersham is a great new building with loads of space and brand new amenities.  We are running this class once a week along side our very successful Zoom PDPower Classes.

World Parkinson’s Day

World Parkinson’s Day on April 11th 2021 starts the beginning of World Parkinson’s Awareness Week.  As there is no cure for Parkinson’s, this is an annual opportunity to raise awareness and much needed funds to support people with living with the condition, to improve quality of life and to ensure that people live better for longer.  Me and my great team help people with Parkinson’s through using regular high intensity exercise to empower and assist people live well with Parkinson’s.  We have had a challenging year but risen to this challenge by Zoom classes, fundraising challenges and supporting each other with Zoom socials.  This week is about raising awareness about this condition to help people understand the complexities of it and help raise funds to find a cure.  Please donate if you can to https://cureparkinsons.org.uk/  or  https://www.parkinsons.org.uk/

Virtual Therapy – should I have a reveiw?

Due to Covid-19 we have decided to provide some therapy virtually via FaceTime or Zoom

Why may I need a virtual consultation?

  • to discuss new symptoms and possible treatment options
  • to progress existing exercises
  • to address certain difficulties that you are facing at present and set up exercises virtually.
  • to reveiw your current situation
  • to go through specific exercises that you find hard
  • to focus on specific areas like balance or pain.

Virtual consultation via Facetime or Zoom £25 for 30 minutes, £50 for one hour.

We have been successfully delivering virtual 1:1 sessions for 8 weeks now with some clients. The feedback is that although not the same as a face to face session it has helped sort problems before they escalate

COVID-19 UPDATE

Due to Covid-19 normal face-to-face therapy had been suspended.  However, due to advice taken from the CSP physiotherapists are now able to risk assess individual cases and decide if face-to-face contact is essential to the wellbeing of the client.  If this is the case then Personal Protective Equipment gloves, apron , facemask and if appropriate a visor) will be worn throughout the session.

Please contact me if you feel a face-to-face assessment is needed.
