8. WHAT OUR THERAPISTS SAY…

“I first came into contact with the Back and Body clinic when I booked in as a patient. I was impressed with the professionalism, expertise and friendliness of all I came into contact with. Later in the year I heard that they were expanding and looking for extra staff. I applied and am now a permanent, part time member of staff. Since joining the team I have found the leadership to be dynamic, creative, open and focused on continuous improvement, with weekly staff training sessions where techniques are refined and developed for the benefit of all. My first impressions were good, but my insider knowledge now convinces me that I am very fortunate to be a small part of this exciting and continuously improving team.” Andy (Sports Massage Therapist)

‘Since the moment that I arrived to The Back and Body Clinic I was impressed with the friendly and professional atmosphere at the clinic. Sam and Rich care so much about the quality of the service that they are providing to the patients and the working conditions for their employees. It is amazing to find a place where everyone shares the interest of continuing to develop their professionals skills and are willing to share their knowledge. Believe it or not…since I have started working at The Back and Body Clinic I do not hate Mondays anymore! From our Mondays training sessions to our Fridays Team lunch (with treats included) I enjoy every single moment working within this team.’ Sara (Physiotherapist)

‘The Back and Body clinic is a fantastic clinic to work at. There is something really unique here. There is a great positive team environment where collaboratively we can genuinely provide the best for our patients which is exactly what you want as a practitioner. The weekly training (with brownies some weeks!) keep us all up to date and are always fun and informative and the vast experience of each individual practitioner here, means there is always a go to person if you want to double check something. Great team and lovely patients who pick up on the “can do” vibe of the clinic. I love coming to work. :)’ Suzie
