Do you suffer from chronic undiagnosed pain?
Would you like to feel healthier, fitter and happier from the inside to the outside?

Our highly qualified and experienced, talented team of practitioners are dedicated to help you to get back to optimum health. 

Located on the Old Fishermans beach in Hythe, Physiologic is a holistic based Complementary Health Centre that has been established for 25 years. Our team of physiotherapists, acupuncturists, craniosacral, massage, yoga and meditation practitioners are highly qualified to provide only the best treatments for your body and soul.

From our experience we have found that many people these days suffer with undiagnosed or chronic physical pain that traditional Western medicines are unable to help. All too often this physical pain is a manifestation of an emotional block which occurs to protect ourselves from shocks, fear or trauma. Once removed, the body can start healing itself from within. Our team will offer a bespoke programme for each individual, intuitively selecting a combination of treatments to help the body heal from within and reconnect with its true, balanced state. The results are amazingly fast and soon you will be feeling better than ever.

We are able to help you with chronic or undiagnosed pain, fertility, sports injuries, insomnia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, headaches, aching limbs and extreme tiredness, rehabilitation.
Martha English
Director of Physiologic


My absolute passion is to create optimum health, wellbeing and complete harmony of mind, body and soul.

I have been interested in the wondrous power of the human body since an early age, yet it was only after I experienced an undiagnosed chronic illness that I learnt techniques to recover that, I then made it my mission in life to help others reap the benefits I have been so lucky to enjoy.

The human body is extraordinary and so much of it still remains a mystery, but I want to show how healing techniques such as Amen, acupuncture, theta, meta and Reiki can empower us all to heal ourselves by harnessing our own inner energies.

I am a trained acupuncturist, qualified theta healer and an amen practitioner. I have studied Chinese medicine and acupuncture at The Chinese College of Medicine in London, trained with Jani White at Acuhouse http://www.acuhouse.co.uk/ and am also a qualified Mummy MOT practitioner http://themummymot.com/ .
I feel very privileged to be part of such a talented team here at Physiologic.

Ollie Wilkinson
Physio


Before becoming a Physiotherapist I had a keen interest in all things outdoors. I was and still am a keen kayaker and climber and love nothing more than being outside whether rain or shine. Over the years I have seen and experienced various musculoskeletal injuries and I developed a keen interest in the treatment and rehabilitation post injury. This interest lead me to study at Brighton University where I graduated in 2012. Since then I have worked as a physiotherapist both in the private sector and the NHS along the south coast for the last four years. I have worked in various specialities such as Musculoskeletal, Orthopaedics, Cardio Respiratory and Neurology.

Interests Understanding pain, the treatment and management of acute and chronic sports injuries, rehabilitation of both short and long term back pain and post op rehabilitation.

Lisa Lowery-Jones
Nutritionist


I first became interested in Nutrition whilst studying for a Bsc (Hons) in Sports and Exercise Science at the University of Brighton. I went on to work at the Hammersmith Hospital in London as a Research Assistant in Gastroenterology then as a Scientific Officer in Genomic Medicine, where I ran a DNA sequencing service.

In 2008 I relocated to Kent and took time out to look after my new born twins. In 2011 I took my interest in Nutrition to the next level and studied for two years at Premier Training, graduating with a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy. I am also a member of the British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT).

I have been running my own practice in Folkestone since 2013 where I see clients for personalised nutritional assessments. My main area of interest is helping clients with weight loss, but I also help clients change their nutrition for sports, optimal fertility and specialised diets such as vegetarian, vegan or yeast-free. I always work with clients individually, and work with each client to determine their likes and dislikes in order to make small dietary changes.

I also provide a food intolerance testing service, which is a simple test for anyone wishing to find out if they have any reactions to certain foods. Client samples are sent off to the laboratory to detect food-specific IgG antibodies in the blood. Symptoms of food intolerance include abdominal pain, skin problems, bloating, fatigue, IBS, fluid retention, headaches, weight gain, wheezing and low mood. Identifying and eliminating any trigger foods can greatly reduce or remove symptoms for the client giving rise to a better quality of life.

I am now delighted to be teaming up with Physiologic to add to the specialist range of services they offer.

Lisa Burnett
Massage Therapist
Reflexologist


I am passionate about raising awareness that every body has the ability to heal itself given nurture and time. How this is achieved is different for everyone.

I experienced a prolapsed lumbar disk at the age of 19 and found complimentary therapies of great benefit to restore me to a full and active life. It also inspired me to question my lifestyle choices and I soon realised that there was a lot I could change to help myself to become healthier, happier, and to prevent it happening again. I regularly have treatments to help maintain my optimal health.

This, in time, motivated me to become a Holistic Body Massage Therapist in 1994 and I have been in professional practice ever since. Later, I added Reflexology, Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage and Energy Healing to my skill set.

I carefully listen to my clients individual needs, whether they are presenting themselves emotionally or physically, often both. I can feel by touch and see physical imbalances in the clients body then facilitate the healing with the therapy I believe will work best, sometimes it is a combination of all three. Helping to nurture the client back to wholeness with a safe and supportive approach and environment.

Bruce Aitken

After qualifying as a Physiotherapist in 1983, Bruce worked full time in the NHS for the following six years. Bruce then also qualified as a Shiatsu practitioner and a Craniosacral Therapist.

Bruce’s experience is broad based, having worked in mental health, in hospices and with people following strokes and head injuries, as well as those with musculoskeletal problems. In recent years, he has developed a special interest in two particular areas.

One is mothers and babies, particularly when there was a difficult birth, but also if the baby has unusual symptoms, even when the labour was easy. These symptoms might include colic; problems with feeding or sleeping; inconsolable crying, or simply the impression that all is “not quite right”

Mothers can frequently benefit from help to rebalance after childbirth, for example to recover from strains to the pelvis or to ease residual backache.

The other area of special interest is people who have complex or longstanding physical symptoms. Typical examples are recurrent backaches or headaches; widespread muscular pain and chronic fatigue. Sometimes other treatments will have been tried without success. They may be feeling low in mood and lacking energy. This can often occur when there has been a trauma associated with the onset or when the causes of the symptoms are not clear.

Bruce’s personal philosophy is based around acknowledging and validating all aspects of yourself and recognising that fundamentally we are all one.
