Welcome to Time Out Therapies
I’m Sandra Harris, and I am the Principal at Time Out Therapies, based in Stoke Gifford, Bristol. I am a qualified Osteopath, and graduated with a First Class BSc (Hons). I’m experienced in providing effective pain relief treatments using Osteopathic, Bowen and Kinesio taping techniques. I am also a post-graduate qualified and APPI accredited Pilates instructor and use my expertise in Osteopathy and Pilates for rehabilitation purposes.
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 for your Osteopathy treatment under Health Shield, Simply Health, WPA and Vitality insurance schemes.
I take online bookings for treatments and Pilates classes. Please use the following links to book:

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.
