After much hard work and continued support, the West Berkshire Therapy Centre finally opened it’s doors on 1st April. The centre which incorporates a suite of Shapemaster equipment has been designed to help support those living with long term conditions such as Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease and other neurological conditions. John Holt, Director of the centre commented, “The centre will provide exercise therapy for disabled people, using equipment that provides repeated movement, gently and quietly. Even the weakest of muscles can be exercised. Being disabled, for whatever reason, can mean it is difficult to take sufficient exercise and often means a risk of putting on weight, poor circulation, stiffness, pain and feeling low. Lack of exercise also risks some serious health problems, of the heart, respiratory and diabetes. So we will be helping disabled people on all those fronts, whatever their individual goals”.
The centre also featured in a recent BBC News feature where visitors hailed the centre’s efforts and discussed the benefits of the equipment available. Click Here to view the BBC feature.
