MR Frankie Chesterton MCSP Bsc Hons Physiotherapy

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist Bsc (Hons) MCSP AACP
I qualified from Nottingham University in 2008, and spent a little over three years working across two large acute London NHS Trusts, where I honed my skills as a musculoskeletal physiotherapist, but also gained valuable and fascinating experience working in orthopedic, neurological and amputee physiotherapy. I then moved to Oxfordshire in 2012 where I have since worked exclusively in the field of musculoskeletal rehabilitation. Along the way I have picked up skills in a range of exciting environments – pitchside at rugby games, slopeside at the Relentless Big Freeze Festival for elite skiers and snowboarders, and also in the pool when providing hydrotherapy to a range of patients with a range of complaints.
Although I have a personal interest in pretty much every sport, I spend just as much time treating non-sports related injuries. My experience and enthusiasm for treating musculoskeletal injuries, alongside postgraduate training in acupuncture, K-Taping, spinal manipulation and Pilates provides me with the breadth of knowledge needed to get the best results from you.

Zoe Bright Bowen Therapist
Bowen Therapy is a gentle hands-on myofascial release technique therapy. The practitioner uses gentle pressure of the thumbs or fingers to perform a unique series of rolling type movements, around the body to stimulate the muscles and soft tissues.
Bowen treatment takes approximately 45 minutes during which there are short breaks allowing the body to rest and response, it can be performed through light clothing, and is a subtle, relaxing and non-invasive treatment. A course of three treatments at weekly intervals is recommended.
Bowen Therapy is different to massage, it does not use hard pressure and there is no awkward manipulation.
The Bowen technique was developed in the 1950 by Australian Tom Bowen, prompting the body to reset, repair and balance itself, many clients report pain relief, improvement of function and recovery of energy.
