Walk, drive, or bus!


Our clinic is very accessible.  Just a five minute walk from the Alderney Ferry terminal and where multiple bus routes stop and a 3 minute drive to MacDonald bridge.  Park for free “hourly” parking or at metered parking in front of our building. There is a wheelchair ramp at entrance.


Soon as you walk in the door, you can find a seat in the waiting area. Help yourself to a coffee/tea/water while you wait.  We try very hard to run on time because we respect your schedule and we will ask you to also do the same. (we will not be able to extend your appointment if you arrive late.)  


Appointments are 30 minutes or 1 hour in length. You will be with the physiotherapist for the full length of treatment or strength training time.
