“I have seen several of the staff at this clinic over the years for various different ailments and have found all of them to be excellent practitioners in their fields and most sympathetic. The reception staff are also most helpful and courteous. My most recent appointments with Jayshri have been very successful.”

“Claire’s Pilates sessions are always varied and tailored to individual’s needs, limitations and strengths – and very friendly. Seen great results with posture and lower back stiffness. As well as general sessions, Claire’s ongoing training means she delivers regular classes focusing on anti-sitting, menopause and bone health. Can’t recommend Claire’s Pilates classes highly enough. Thank you!”

“I’ve been attending the Pilates class on Saturdays and really enjoy the enthusiasm, energy and experience of the instructor Claire, even when adapting to offering these online (until gyms can open again!) I’ve also received Osteopath treatment at Woodside and no matter who I am seen by, I always feel heard and valued as a customer. My treatment was well explained and communicated throughout the different techniques used during my appointment. I always feel in very safe hands with the professionals at Woodside and even since the lockdown measures lifted.”


“I’ve seen many of the staff at Woodside Clinic over the years and they are all fantastic. Special thanks to Claire who is absolutely fantastic at teaching pilates and has helped me come a long way. Pratik is also great and always knows how to help! Would recommend them to everyone!”

“Went to see Pratik at Woodside Clinic today to sort out my troublesome back. What a guy! Firstly , the clinic is taking simple , practical steps to be COVID secure – but it still felt a bit weird, within a couple of minutes of chatting with Pratik – any weirdness associated with the new COVID world was forgotten. Super knowledgeable, great to chat to and most importantly sorted my back out good and proper and as promised, he has emailed me through some simple exercises to do to help strengthen my core too – it is the best my back has felt in a LONG time, so much so I hit some smashing shots at tennis this evening. Thanks Pratik!”

I have been attending Woodside Clinic. The staff make you feel comfortable about your safety there. When you arrive you are asked to use the hand sanitizer and they check your temperature, which is logged. The staff are using all the appropriate face masks, gloves, and aprons.They sanitize everything before you arrive and after you leave. I have been seeing Pratik, an osteopath. He makes me feel at home and checks it’s okay before doing anything. He’s made a great job sort my shoulder out. I would recommend them.”

I have been using Woodside Clinic for group Pilates classes to strengthen my core. I have two prolapsed discs and need to learn to strengthen the muscles around that area. The instructor was very helpful and provided me with clear instructions and exercises that will help. The Reformer seems to be an amazing piece of equipment too.I chose Woodside initially for their availability late in the evening due to work commitments but the small classes are definitely a bonus due to the amount of personal instruction you receive. I’d most definitely recommend them.


Acupuncture has really helped with my headaches during my 2nd pregnancy. Staff and therapists at Woodside Clinic are very friendly and helpful.

Mr A is a 45 year old van driver who was recommended to try Pilates by his osteopath to help strengthen his core and improve his posture.
After an initial postural assessment and taking some background history, Mr A mentioned he had booked a skiing holiday and really wanted to feel fitter and stronger for his trip to help prevent any injury.

We decided that Pilates on the Reformer would be a great way to achieve this, with the spring loaded resistance to strengthen and lengthen muscles .The basic principles of Pilates were taught first then a programme devised to strengthen abdominals quadriceps, glutes and improve scapular stability also ankle stability.

After returning from his skiing holiday injury free, Mr A felt the benefits of Pilates had definitely helped him and continues to attend sessions on a weekly basis.

Case Study – Pilates

Extremely well researched, thorough and nailed my pain to the spot. I had been going to other physios, osteos and chiros for over 3 years. Pratik within 3 sessions was able to guide me through improving my core strength to alleviate the crippling back pain I had resigned to live with for the rest of my life. Fast forward one year and my back is at its strongest, my core at its strongest and I feel alive. Thank you Woodside!! Thank you pilates.
