Women’s Physiotherapy Reigate is run by Jessica Higton. Jessica has over 20 years clinical experience, and has held senior and lead roles in both the NHS and the private sector. She is a member of the following professional bodies.
Whilst working as a specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapist at Gatwick Park Hospital, I became increasingly aware of the impact a poorly functioning pelvic floor can have on musculoskeletal conditions, particularly low back pain and wanted to learn more. Through independent study, training and post-graduate courses I discovered how important this area is for good health, but also how often it is neglected. Musculoskeletal and women's health conditions often overlap and my in-depth knowledge of both areas allow me to assess and treat them together, a huge advantage for my clients. I am also qualified to use acupuncture as part of my practice.
I am mindful that women's health conditions can be embarrassing and upsetting and I manage this sensitively. My clinic is located within Reigate Natural Health which is a safe, private and relaxed space. For more details on the location please go to contact.
I moved to Reigate in 2010 with my husband and started my family here. I have three children aged 12, 9 and 6. Aside from all things women's health I love gardening, running and having a coffee and a chat with friends.
