Directions

On foot from the city centre:
We are a 200m walk from the west end of Princes Street. Keeping Edinburgh Castle/gardens on your left walk to the end of Princes Street, Frasers Department store is the last shop on your right. To your right, Ryans bar/cafe is on the corner. Queensferry Street is the street going down the left side of Ryans bar - heading towards Dean Bridge and Queensferry Road. We are 200m further down on the left hand side of the road, beside the Clydesdale Bank on the corner of Melville Street.

By train:
Ideally situated a half mile walk from Haymarket Station for trains from Fife, Stirling, Glasgow and Livingston. Or 3/4 mile from Waverley Station. From Haymarket Station - Come out of the station and walk straight ahead into West Maitland Street, heading in the direction of Princes Street. Continue straight at the junction with Palmerston Place (Starbucks and Boots flank the junction). Elegant crescents open out on both sides shortly after this and the road becomes Shandwick Place. Continue past the shops to the West End - see the more detailed walking directions above - Queensferry Street is a left turn just before you reach Princes Street. From Waverley Station - Exit onto Princes Street and walk to the left (west) in the direction of the Castle. When you reach the West End of Princes Street follow the walking directions above.

By bus:
Any bus serving the West End (coming from within Edinburgh, or outside) will stop within a short walk of the shop. There are convenient bus stops from all areas that will let you off in either Queensferry Street itself, Shandwick Place, Lothian Road, or Princes Street. Then follow the walking directions above.

Parking opportunities:
There is ample pay and display parking in Melville Street, which generally has good availability of spaces and is right around the corner from the shop. Pay and display costs £2.20 per hour and has a maximum stay of 4 hours.

What we do

Our experienced practitioners provide a variety of treatments, designed to help you understand your condition and to speed up your recovery. Whether you are looking for a solution to a sports injury, tools to build your fitness or struggling with a condition brought on by stress, working conditions or an accident, our team are all highly trained and passionate about helping you get back to peak health and fitness.

What we treat

Injury & Rehabilitation: Physiotherapy aids recovery from injury, restoring full movement and alleviating pain. Shiatsu Massage helps reduce inflammation from exercise induced muscle stress and stimulate mitochondria which fuels cell repair and therefore recovery.

Back & Neck Pain: Shiatsu Massage targets muscles locked into tension, brings relief and health back to the muscles. Physiotherapy concentrates on the source of the pain, works on mobilisation and prescribing movement exercises for a long term remedy.

Analysis & Coaching: Exercise increases fitness but to stave off injury we have to address balance and conditioning. Running Form Technique Analysis and Coaching assesses movement skills to refine and maintain optimum gait efficiency, reducing the risk of injury. The efficacy of running form coaching can be seen when recurrent injuries abate, form improves and speed increases.
