" Hello, I'm Mary and I am the Physiotherapist Principal here at Willow House. During my time as a Physiotherapist I have worked for the NHS, in a private clinic and as a Civilian Physiotherapist for the MOD. I have over 30 years of experience treating injuries and in my time I feel I have seen almost everything! So, whatever your injury, I hope I can help you.



I particularly specialise in:



  • Sports Injury e.g. sprains and strains, tendon injuries, ligament injuries

  • Taping

  • Musculoskeletal Dysfunction e.g. repetitive strain injuries, tennis elbow, rotator cuff injuries, medial tibial stress syndrome & compartment syndrome (shin splints)

  • Neck Pain

  • Back and Pelvis  Pain

  • Rehabilitation after injury or surgery

  • Rehabilitation after joint replacement surgery

  • Pre & Post-Operative Care

  • Manual Therapy ("hands on" treatment)

  • Ergonomic Advice

  • Functional Movement Screening and Specific Functional Movement Assessment practitioner

I use a variety of treatment techniques, including strain/counterstrain, muscle energy techniques, specific soft tissue massage, myofascial release, taping and exercise therapy. My aim is to help you make a full recovery but some of my older clients have regular reviews and gentle treatment to help them maintain their mobility and carry on doing their hobbies.

Treatment in the clinic is the easiest option however domiciliary visits are available on request."

Chartered Physiotherapist Lesley Ede MCSP HCPC

Waiting for photo

"Hello, I'm Lesley and I joined the practice in September 2019.

 

I am an experienced and enthusiastic physiotherapist graduating from Bradford University in 2001.

Over the 18 years of my professional career, I have had the opportunity to work within the NHS, the MOD and a selection of private physiotherapy practices here in the UK and also in New Zealand. During my time in New Zealand I was able to strengthen my Sports injuries interest, working in sports including rugby, football , triathlon, equestrian , basketball,  badminton and winter sports.  In the UK, I worked with professional, amateur athletes and the general population and on my return from New Zealand, I reached one of my professional ambitions when I was selected as a physiotherapist for the London Olympics and Para Olympics in 2012.

Since 2012 I have worked within a military setting providing physiotherapy and exercises rehabilitation for the Royal Artillery and the RAF.  Here I treated a vast array of injuries and conditions. Working alongside Mary and Rachel in the RAF setting strengthened my "hands on"/manual therapy skills. I currently cover some of the RAF Rugby League training camps which I enjoy immensely. 

Having had the amazing experience of having 2 children I have grown an interest in pre and post- natal exercise and enjoy the challenges of getting back to activity following child-birth.  I am a great communicator and enjoy helping, educating and inspiring patients to do their best, giving them confidence to move well and achieve their goals.

With one of my motto’s being “Physiotherapy is something you do, not something you get”. I feel I develop a strong partnership ethos with my patients, working together in partnership we always get the best results. 

I look forward to joining Mary and Richard and the team at Willow House.

 

I enjoy all aspects of musculoskeletal physiotherapy and have a specific interest in -

  • Sports injuries.

  • Rehabilitation.

  • Pre and post-operative rehabilitation.

  • Ante-natal and post-natal rehabilitation

  • Knee and ankle pain and dysfunction.

  • Soft Tissue mobilisation and joint dysfunction."

Massage Therapist

Sports and Remedial Massage Therapist Rebecca Marshall MSMA

Level 4 Diploma in Sports Massage

" My treatments work on improving the quality of the soft tissues within the body.  Massage work helps to increase the blood supply, by releasing tension, flushing through lactic acid and realigning scar tissue.  I have a number of techniques that I use for treatments to ensure the best results with the minimal discomfort.

Soft tissue massage can allow greater freedom of movement and consequently, better quality of life. Massage can be beneficial to everyone, not just people participating in sport.

 

Instinctively, I respond to the muscles and soft tissues in the body therefore tailoring each treatment to the patient’s physical needs or injuries. The use of hot stones can be beneficial in achieving deep relaxation and I offer this as one of the options for massage.

 

I gained my qualification through Sports Performance Services which is a school accredited by The Association of Soft Tissue Therapists.

 

Previously I have worked solely as an Equine trainer and rider, so I understand the stresses which can be put on the soft tissues and the benefits of regular massage work.

 

I can offer your treatments here at the clinic in our beautifully appointed therapy room, or at your home."

Medical Herbalist

Andrea Townhill BSc (Hons) MNIMH, URHP

Practice Administrator

Hello, I'm Andrea and I'm a Medical Herbalist (BSc) Hons.

 

As a herbalist, I treat everybody as an individual in an holistic way, not just treating the symptoms but looking at the cause. After your initial consultation, I prescribe and prepare a bespoke medication for you.

 

My interest for looking after nature and holistic therapies started at a young age, where I believe that if you nurture the soil and crops, they will nurture you. Therefore I grow, without using pesticides, some of my own medicinal herbs which I use in my herbal preparations.

 

I have a particular interest in "joint pain" and "gut health", from food intolerances, allergies, injuries and neuroendocrine imbalances, but also treat other conditions such as sleep and lethargy; stress, anxiety and depression; fertility;  menstrual and menopausal health; hypertension and other health issues.

Elizabeth Webster

“Hello,  my name is Elizabeth and I am the Practice Administrator at Willow House. I am originally from Cambridge, moving from Guildford to Norwich before settling in Lincolnshire and making Ruskington home to bring up three wonderful children. Married to Stuart for over 32 years, one of us needs a medal but I’m not saying which one!

I have a secretarial and administrative background and worked for a Careers Research Advisory Centre, a Building Society, and as a Civil Servant for the Department of Employment.

I have worked in a primary school in several roles since 1991 and moved from an administrative post at Chestnut Street Primary School to take up the role here at Willow House.

 

I have excellent organisational, communication and administrative skills, which have enabled me to grasp this amazing opportunity to be part of the team at Willow House. I love dealing with people on a day to day basis and being a friendly first point of contact when you visit, email or telephone the clinic. Many years ago a gentleman told me that if you want something doing properly ask a busy person and I pretty much think this sums me up. 

 

Village life has been important to me where I have made lots of friends, led and been involved in the many village, church and school activities.  I sing in a choir and enjoy walking, especially near the coast.

I am a keen gardener, but do not profess to be an expert.  I hope this year I will be able to concentrate on my own garden and try to avoid Mary asking me to help with hers!

 

I look forward to giving you a warm welcome at Willow House."
