Relax & Rehab was founded in 2014 by Karen Schollhammer, a Physiotherapist and Sports Massage Therapist with over 13 years of work experience in the NHS and the private industry. Her strong beliefs, core values and desire to help people overcome their fears associated with pain and injury power her drive for success.

Karen says, " We encourage our clients to relax and take time to reflect upon and talk about their pain or existing injury, before using a series of evidence based examinations to guide the formation of a diagnostic impression. We then aim then to provide a clear and detailed explanation of what is or isn't happening, what can be done to address it and how. We firmly believe that if our clients understand and accept what is happening, they can then fully engage in the rehabilitation process which is in my opinion the key to the successful management."
