Jo Strutt, co-owner of Bridgeham Clinic in Manor Royal with her husband Trevor, knows only too well about being a busy businesswoman and juggling work with family.
One of the most common phrases she hears from other women attending appointments at Bridgeham Clinic is, “I have been in pain for such a long time, but I just haven’t had time to do anything about it!”
When a warning light appears in your car you take it to a garage, but how good are you at applying the same principle to your own body? Bridgeham Clinic offers a variety of services at times to fit around your busy work schedule and are also recognised by many large insurance companies.
Bridgeham can help with everything from physical and health issues to mental health and emotional ailments. Bridgeham takes a holistic approach to health and wellbeing by offering massage, reflexology, acupuncture, nutrition, hypnotherapy, Pranic healing and foot health to complement their mechanical treatments of osteopathy, physiotherapy, Pilates and Garuda.
Osteopathy and physiotherapy catches aches, pains and niggles before they turn into big problems! Lower back aches, stiff knees and ankle joints, hip or knee replacement preparation and recovery along with pregnancy or return to work post maternity leave can all be supported at the clinic. Neck and shoulder pains can be eradicated, menopausal hormones harmonised and your nutrition requirements addressed.
Pilates and Garuda can keep you pain free by reconnecting you with your body and your movement awareness, whilst relieving stress and improving your confidence in how you hold yourself at work, rest and play.

Acupuncture is a fantastic way of supporting working women who travel as it can help with getting you back to your routine quickly post jet lag. If you are always on the go, it can boost your energy levels and help with sleep. If you are suffering with gynaecological issues, migraines, headaches, stress or not being able to switch off, these are manageable with acupuncture. As a balancing, preventative treatment to keep you in optimum health, it’s perfect.

The power of a positive mindset can be life changing. Women in business all around the world use hypnosis and other therapies to empower and enhance their own incredible talents; to help let go of negative thoughts and demons. You can learn to use your own imagination to create change. If you struggle with speaking at meetings or making presentations, anxiety is probably the underlying cause. There are many coping techniques you can learn to break old habits and allow you the opportunity for new incredible life adventures and a boost in confidence.
Nutrition is so important for physical and mental wellbeing. Bridgeham’s experience is that they have seen an increase in the number of people showing signs of Adrenal Fatigue. This 20th century condition has come about due to people trying to fit so much into their day and being perfect at everything they do. Eating the right foods and at the right time can make a huge difference to how we feel. Not eating regularly or choosing the wrong foods can generate a blood sugar roller coaster and if your blood sugar drops you might feel tired, irritable and depressed. Eating regularly and choosing foods that release energy slowly will help to keep your sugar levels steady. High stress levels can affect many body systems and can cause your hormones to get out of balance. Looking at your current diet and your health concerns, will help them create a personalised nutrition plan that works for you and your lifestyle.
Make the time and go and check your warning light! Your Broken to Brilliant journey starts by unleashing your body’s true potential and revealing your real self. Knowing that wherever you set your sights, Bridgeham will be with you all the way.
