There is overwhelming scientific evidence that people who lead active lifestyles are less likely to suffer from illness and more likely to live longer. Exercise not only makes you physically fitter, it also improves your mental health and general sense of wellbeing helping alleviate symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression. Physical activity can also reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke and reduce high blood pressure (hypertension) cholesterol and Type 2 diabetes. It is also known to help with obesity, osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.
Diet and Lifestyle management Typically people try to do too much too soon and rush weight loss through ineffective and sometimes harmful yo yo and faddy dieting. We offer a thorough assessment of your current diet and lifestyle and use this information to help initiate effective and manageable long term changes to ensure achievement of your goals. This may involve diet assessment alone or combined with a suitable exercise programme. Small realistic change pays greater dividends than sweeping unsustainable fads.

What our customers have to say
Sports therapy treatments have helped me in both competitive and leisure cycling, helping recovery as well as alleviating discomfort, especially from an old hamstring injury. One of the things I like about Roy is the mix of a friendly yet professional approach with a wide range of knowledge, including dietary advice and exercise tips as well as helping keep me focused and motivated. I’ve also learnt the importance of rest to help achieve my goals!
My decision to start training with Abi 15 years ago was inspired! The difference in my physical condition is astonishing and rather than feeling older and more exhausted I genuinely feel rejuvenated. The move to their own premises in Framlingham and then Rendlesham has added privacy and flexibility., add massage the steam room and hot tub – well I am extremely happy (and fit).
What I like about Roy is his non-judgemental approach, his good listening skills and his sense of humour. He is very refreshing. Also what is different with Roy is his ability to combine treatments, being qualified in so many areas – Counselling, reflexology, hypnotherapy, massage and reiki, to name a few. This can be very useful, especially with an illness as diverse as ME, and a person as diverse as ME!
