Your health and fitness

The West Bay Country Club

Wellness can be described as a healthy balance of the mind, body and spirit which helps us feel happy and gives us an overall feeling of good health and vitality.

Wellness is at the centre of everything we do. Our friendly and experienced team will help you develop and maintain a holistic approach to your health and fitness, and maintain wellness in every aspect of your life.

Health MOT and Body 4 Life

As a Country Club member you will receive a complimentary one-to-one induction and fitness assessment. The Health MOT is a 60-minute, in-depth assessment based on a series of checks and tests we carry out to determine how fit and healthy you are. Our fitness professionals will use this information together with your aims and objectives to design a bespoke Body 4 Life programme to help you to achieve your personal goals.

Rehabilitation and injury prevention

Chiropractor

Our commitment to wellness means that we have a holistic approach to long-term development and injury prevention. Our in-house chiropractor and NIS practitioner Guy Blomfield will help you to build vital knowledge about your health and fitness to build strength and decrease your risk of future injury.

Are you suffering with discomfort in your spine, lower back or neck? Guy joins us each Tuesday, so why not book in for a session? Using a range of techniques with an emphasis on manipulation of the spine, Guy will use his skills in manual therapy to target discomfort in your joints to leave you feeling well again.

Guy also has over 10 years of experience in Applied Kinesiology; a ‘muscle response testing’ technique that involves gentle contacts on the bodies’ acupuncture points to determine the strength or weakness of a muscle.

An initial assessment costs £60, with follow up appointments at £40.  If you’d like to find out more or book a session, ask the team at the Country Club reception on 01983 766222 or email hello@westbaycountryclub.co.uk

Physiotherapy

As our in-house physiotherapist, Shirley Pritchard is here to treat a wide range of musculoskeletal problems.

Shirley Pritchard, BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy, HCPC registered, MCSP

Shirley started working for the Isle Of Wight NHS Physiotherapy Service in 1994, went on to do her training at Southampton University and graduated in the year 2000 with a BSc (Hons) degree in Physiotherapy. Since then, she has continued her career within the NHS and has gained extensive experience working with all types of musculoskeletal conditions. She has now extended this into the private sector where she continues to practice her specialist interest in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy. Throughout her career, Shirley has qualified in the treatment of Acupuncture for pain, and has trained in the McKenzie, Mulligan and Maitland concept for treatment of the spine and peripheral joint mobilisations. A course on pelvic girdle pain has been invaluable for treating those with sacroiliac related pain and pregnant women with these problems. As an APPI Pilate’s Instructor, Shirley applies these principles to her treatments to help maintain successful outcomes. Trained in the techniques of kinesiology taping, she has found it particularly beneficial in the treatment of sports injuries.

Clinic sessions will run on Fridays in our rehab room from 9am-5pm.

If you’d like to find out more or book a session, ask the team at the Country Club reception desk or contact Shirley at Westbayphysio@gmail.com or 07786957059

Sports Massage and Kinesiology Taping

Sports massage is a great preventative treatment as well as ideal for treating injuries and enhancing sporting performance. It works deep into the muscles, realigning the muscle fibres and connective tissue and flushing away toxins. Regular sessions will increase joint mobility and flexibility; and reduce the risk of injury during exercise. You don’t need to be an athlete or sports person to benefit from a sports massage. It can help with everyday aches and pains, postural imbalances, aid recovery between training sessions and much more. To find out more, ask the team at the Country Club reception.

Therapeutic kinesiology tape can benefit a wide variety of musculoskeletal and sports injuries,
plus inflammatory conditions. Both amateur and professional athletes also use kinesiology
taping in order to improve their sporting performance, prevent injury and aid recovery. Ask for more details at the Country Club reception.
