Welcome to Time Out Therapies
Is pain impacting your work or home life?
Has injury affected your ability to exercise or enjoy your favourite sports?
Do you feel tired, stressed and that life is taking its toll on your health?
If the answer is ‘Yes’ , it’s definitely time to take ‘Time Out’ to relax, repair, and re-energise – restoring balance and your sense of wellbeing.
I’m Sandra Harris, and I am the Principal at Time Out Therapies, based in Stoke Gifford, Bristol. I am a qualified Osteopath, BSc Hons (First Class), experienced in providing effective pain relief treatments using Osteopathic and Kinesio taping techniques. I also specialise in a wide range of complementary therapies, including Bowen Technique, Reflexology and Holistic Massage.
I provide patient-centred, quality healthcare where integrity is fundamental to my practice and philosophy. You are the focus of my work and during your first consultation I will thoroughly explore your presenting symptoms. Since I am qualified across a broad range of therapies, I can make a personalised recommendation on which I believe will best suit your needs.
As an Osteopath, I am a primary healthcare provider, which means that I can diagnose and treat your problem without a referral from your GP. Equally, I can directly refer you to alternative professionals, if your needs are outside my scope of practice. I also have the necessary qualifications for claiming under Health Shield, Simply Health and Vitality insurance schemes.
My Clinic is a reflection of my ethos and practice – a tranquil, relaxing environment – offering you the convenience of late evening and early morning appointments, as well as daytime, with the bonus of free, off-street parking.
To have an initial chat with me, please 'get in touch'.
Kate*, a regular patient of mine, contacted me with a tender, swollen knee which was very uncomfortable to walk on for any distance. After examining her, I diagnosed osteo-arthritis in her knee joint and discussed how we could manage the pain and discomfort with osteopathy. [Read more >> ]
The swelling has gone down a lot and the pain has subsided. It is not keeping me awake at night and I am able to walk more comfortably.
