Physiotherapy in Twickenham
Comfort and connection
In 2005, experienced physiotherapists Liam and Paul took over a fledgling practice to provide patient-focused, flexible, honest care to patients when they need it most. As business grew, we moved to our current premises and expanded the team to offer a bigger range of treatments to our valued patients.
We pride ourselves in building trusting, long lasting relationships, and many of our new patients come to us from word of mouth recommendations.
We have extensive clinical experience in healthcare and an excellent network of orthopaedic consultants should we need to refer you on for further treatment.
Our clinic is calm, friendly, and all about comfort and connection. Our team understands how to address persistent pain, and with at least 20 years of experience each, every one of our highly skilled physiotherapists can work with you to speed up your recovery and help you get back to doing the things you love.
Why Body Logic Physiotherapy?
We’re a local, independent clinic in the heart of the Twickenham community. We take the time to understand why you’re in pain and work together on a treatment plan to help you recover as soon as possible.
We aim to:
- provide hands-on treatment from an expert
- explain things in simple terms
- empower you with the knowledge to treat yourself
- advise you on how to reduce injuries in the future
- offer treatments and exercises to maintain strong, healthy joints.
Appointments can be scheduled at a time to suit you and we strive to offer affordable care when you need it. We will never pressure you into unnecessary treatment, and can refer you on to a specialist if you need further care.
We also offer acupuncture as an adjunct to physiotherapy treatment and various types of massage.

MEET THE TEAM
Before studying physiotherapy, Liam gained a degree in Sports Science and then went on to study Exercise and Health Behaviour at MSc level. In 2000, Liam completed his physiotherapy training and has now gained over 20 years experience in the field of physiotherapy.
He has worked in a variety of private practices and hospital settings since his graduation and treated a large variety of people from world-class athletes to grassroots sports people and post-operative patients.
Throughout his career Liam has treated a large variety of injuries and ailments and learnt many techniques along the way, which led him to continue his studies and gain a postgraduate diploma in Sport and Exercise Physiotherapy from Cardiff University.
Liam enjoys all aspects of musculoskeletal physiotherapy and he is very patient centred in his clinical decision-making. He believes that in order to make an individual better you must treat the whole person and not just the problem.
Outside physiotherapy Liam enjoys spending as much time as he can with his family. He also enjoys reading, travelling and cooking. Most weekends you will find him on the touchlines coaching his son’s football team.
Paul qualified in 2001 with a BSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy from Sheffield Hallam University. Prior to this, he also completed a BSc (Hons) in Biology and Sports Science in London. Paul has lived and worked in and around the Twickenham area for most of the last 30 years.
He started out his career working in numerous London NHS hospitals where he provided treatment both on the inpatient wards and in outpatient physiotherapy departments. In 2005 he joined forces with his friend from 6th form college, Liam, and started Body Logic Physiotherapy.
With over 20 years of hands-on physiotherapy experience, Paul is well placed to help people with all aspects of musculoskeletal physiotherapy, from elite athletes to those who have had accidents at work. He believes in using a combination of manual therapy techniques and specific exercises, which eventually enable patients to make a full recovery and avoid reoccurrence. He believes that building relationships and trust, and understanding the causes of pain and disability are key to effective management.
The younger Paul was once a keen rugby player and 5-a-side footballer. Today, Paul still cycles to work and runs 2–3 times a week. He hopes to stay fit and healthy so he can continue working, looking after his young family and enjoying his many hobbies.
Sue is a highly experienced massage therapist who started her massage journey in 2002 by training in Holistic Massage incorporating Swedish, Pregnancy and Reflexology treatments. Sue’s desire to learn more coupled with an interest in the fitness industry led her to qualify with the London School of Sports Massage as a sports and remedial massage therapist in 2004.
She has worked with marathon runners, triathletes and cyclists over a number of years, and uses this experience in her patient’s training programmes, whether preparing for an event, in need of a post-event recovery massage or looking for general treatment to help prevent injury, aid recovery and improve range of motion for enhanced performance.
Sue also offers pregnancy and reflexology treatments. She enjoys helping mums-to-be by easing tension to promote a sense of wellbeing and help provide relief to the common aches and pains such as back ache, stiff legs or swollen ankles often experienced during pregnancy.
Sue’s reflexology treatments are designed to provide a deep sense of relaxation and can help alleviate stress, improve circulation and naturally restore a sense of equilibrium.
Whether you are sporty or sit at a desk all day, Sue’s range of massage techniques can be tailored to your individual needs to help reduce muscle tension, discomfort and soreness, improve blood supply and aid relaxation. Sue is also a member of the Complementary Therapists Association.
When she isn’t working, Sue likes to stay active, with regular workouts at the gym, and walking and cycling along the river. She also likes to relax by going to the cinema and catching up with friends.
Tom graduated from the Physiotherapy School at the University of East London in 2000. After a short spell developing and broadening his core professional skills at a large district NHS hospital in Hertfordshire, he was invited to work at a major RAF training facility where he was able to specialise in the treatment and management of musculoskeletal conditions. The invaluable experience and knowledge gained in this role has underpinned his career ever since.
After indulging his adventurous spirit by travelling the world for a year he returned to the UK and brought his wealth of experience back to the NHS where he worked alongside colleagues developing waiting list initiatives and developing the careers of junior members of staff while managing a full patient caseload.
Thirteen years ago, Tom joined New Victoria Hospital where he now works as Deputy Manager.
During this time, Tom has been involved with service development and the rolling out of initiatives such as the patient journey, optimising the patient experience of physiotherapy and has been part of the Staff Engagement Team, acting as a voice for staff to the executive team. He is now a Mental Health Champion for the organisation.
To complement his own approach to managing his patients, Tom has now completed a postgraduate diploma in Sports and Exercise Rehabilitation where he reinforced his belief that when it comes to physical health, strength underpins everything.
Tom joined Body Logic Physiotherapy in 2016 to broaden his experience in the private sector and to develop links with local GP’s and orthopaedic consultants to provide the highest standards of physiotherapy to the local community. As Tom puts it, “promoting physical health and fitness is my passion.”
In his spare time Tom loves to listen to live music and stay active. He recently rode the Prudential Ride London 100, raising over £1000 for charity. He loves playing tennis and is a fan of Tough Mudder, enjoying the camaraderie of the gruelling 13 mile course.
