Our therapists offer appointments to carers with no charge, in the Centre's own Therapy Room.

Rie Emmers is a Manual Therapist, a Lymphoedema Therapist and a Pilates Instructor. She uses hands-on physical techniques such as massage techniques, scar tissue therapy and acupuncture to relieve pain, restore movement to assist the body's own healing processes, and help you return to your normal activities.

Certain conditions respond very well to and benefit from manual therapy. These include:

  • Non-specific chronic or acute back pain

  • Hip pain or bursitis

  • Headaches

  • Neck pain

  • Frozen shoulder or impingement

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Fibromyalgia and polymyalgia

  • Ankylosing spondylitis

  • Parkinson’s disease

  • Multiple sclerosis

  • Osteo-Arthritis or Rheumatoid Arthritis


Using a combination of techniques that include Massage and Compression Techniques, Stretching and Joint Mobilisation, Kinesio taping, Medical Acupuncture, Scar Tissue Release and/or Visceral Manipulation, Rie can help to relieve pain and help you move more comfortably.
