We are offering both virtual and face-to-face appointments (in full PPE) during the Covid-19 Pandemic.  You will be screened ahead of your appointment to ensure it is safe for you to attend the clinic.

Whether incontinence, pelvic pain, pain during sex or constipation issues, there’s plenty we can do to make things better. We are both Mums and know what it’s like to have pelvic floor problems. It might feel embarrassing at first but please know we are fully sympathetic to your problems and offer you a safe and caring environment to help you get better.

About Us

Women's Health Physiotherapist

Nicky Herringshaw

Hello! My name’s Nicky and I’m a mum of 2 gorgeous little girls. I’m also a musculoskeletal and women’s health physio and a cranio-sacral therapist. Sounds technical I know, but essentially I’m all about backs, joints, muscles, your well-being and your lady bits! I’ve been practising for over 16 years but things changed for me after having my first daughter. I was blown away by just how physically and mentally tough being a mum was. It’s really hard. I mean we should be applauded daily for what we go through but instead, on a daily basis we cope with various bodily fluids being wiped across us; picking-up wriggly children; managing the food in (and out) of your child, running our home, sometimes going to
actual work – need I go on?

It’s tough on our minds and it’s tough on our bodies. Yet one of the most common but most under discussed problems we face is the physical aftermath of having kids. A pelvic floor that causes you to leak a bit of wee (or poo), endless back ache, a gap in your tummy that makes sit-ups look and feel impossible ….the list is pretty endless, and along with all of that often comes a self-confidence that ends up on the floor.

So that’s where I come in. I’m passionate about helping women understand and get what they really need after having a child (however long ago it was). Whether it’s a Mummy MOT where we check over your tummy, back and pelvic floor; a massage to ease the strain of daily life, or even a cranio-sacral session which is just the most relaxing thing you’ll ever have – I’m your woman!

Like all the amazing therapists we have on our website, I will spend a lot of time talking to you, really understanding what your daily life looks like and then tailor a treatment that realistically works for you. And that’s the key to real success – and change for you. No long winded exercise plans or idealistic advice that are highly impractical for most people, let alone a busy mum – instead I will teach you about you, give you the tools to make yourself better and support you with treatment along the way. I try and do it with a smile and some humour too – I recognise some of our problems aren’t the easiest to talk about, but remember I’ve been there too and suffered most of them.

Lisa Few

Hi! My name is Lisa and I am Mum to one crazy, cheeky 6 year old boy. I am also a women’s health physiotherapist and have been for years. I love my job! What’s not to like – I get to help women on a daily basis, both new mums, mums who have older children and women who haven’t had children but are still struggling with bladder and pelvic floor issues.

I genuinely feel that women’s health physiotherapy can make a profound difference to women’s lives and help them feel better about themselves, whether it is helping to fix a gap in their tummies or enabling them to look and jump on a trampoline without any fear! I also help mums by giving advice on how to safely return to exercise after having children or after any gynaecological surgery – there is definitely a right and a wrong way!

I am a mum and completely understand how crazy and challenging life can be and how difficult it can be to prioritise yourself when you have a million things to think about and try and do. I believe in trying to incorporate any exercises or rehab programme into your everyday routine. I want to help, not add to your to do list!

I truly believe that every mum should be seen postnatally to ensure that their tummies don’t have a gap, that their pelvic floor muscles are working as they should be and emotionally and physically they are well. So I would say please don’t suffer in silence, a women’s health physiotherapist can do so much to help. Come and see me!
