ABOUT US

Whole Body Healing

At Physiolistic we are passionate about patient care and delivering an exceptional service to you. We pride ourselves on treating everyone as an individual and tailoring each treatment to your unique needs.

 

This approach is built on a number of core principles:

 

  • Integrity we act with integrity in all we say and do.

  • Attitude we have a positive attitude to life and work.

  • Supportive we are supportive to the needs of our patients and colleagues.

  • Passion we are energetic and enthusiastic and have a genuine desire to make a difference.

  • Growth we believe that a commitment to personal growth and development will lead to success for all – the patient, the team and the business

  • Delivery we believe that to be successful, personally and professionally, it is essential to deliver on what we have committed to.

 

The reputation and success of Physiolistic is due to the exceptional team of people who embrace these principles. From administrative staff to clinicians and managers, they are all dedicated, motivated and caring individuals who deliver excellence in all aspects of patient care. This is why Physiolistic invests heavily in its staff and facilities to offer patients the best possible care and treatment.

 

Physiolistic was set up in 2008 by Chartered Physiotherapist Angela Botha. It was initially a home based clinic which quickly outgrew its location due to the popularity with patients. Angela always had a vision of a holistic physiotherapy clinic with physiotherapy at its core but incorporating other complementary therapy services to provide a whole body healing experience.

 

In August 2010, Physiolistic opened its doors at The Old Dairy, Henley-on-Thames and has continued to go from strength to strength through word of mouth and reputation.

 

In November 2016, Physiolistic started another new chapter and moved to a larger, custom-built clinic at the Henley Rugby Club, Dry Leas site.

 

The clinic has close affiliation with several local sports clubs as well as excellent links with local GPs and Consultants ensuring excellent continuity of care.

 

Angela and her expanding team are continually looking for avenues that can improve both the rehabilitation experience of their patients and help speed recovery of mind and body. While the clinic continues to grow, its ethos remains the same in that excellent patient care, tailored to the individual, remains as its core business priority.
