Lucy Tomalin

Lucy specialises in dysfunctional breathing patterns, breathlessness and long covid.

I am incredibly excited to welcome Lucy to the team, a highly experienced Respiratory Physiotherapist.  We have joined forces to provide clients with our ‘Long COVID’ service, which will help to overcome residual COVID symptoms such as fatigue, memory fog, persistent cough, breathlessness etc.

The service will arm you with strategies, exercises and a way forward to regain your normal energy levels and feeling of wellness again.

Lucy graduated in 2009 with a BSc Hons in Physiotherapy. After her junior rotations, she started specialising in Respiratory in 2011 working across intensive care, medical and admission wards in Plymouth before specialising further in Bristol in long term management of chronic lung conditions, pulmonary rehabilitation, oxygen, clearance and exacerbations of asthma, COPD, ILD and bronchiectasis.  She completed the adult Buteyko training in 2018 and more recently BradCliff Level 1 in assessment and management of breath pattern disorders. She also has a masters level module in asthma to help with support diagnosing, managing and treating asthmatics.

Lucy’s sessions are virtual but if you live local to Cheltenham, hands on treatment can also be provided by Kate in Cheltenham alongside a tailored exercise programme.

“I have been seeing Kate on and off for several years now. She is incredible, no matter what my ailment and I have had various over the years, she has always managed to reduce my pain and increase my mobility. She is very professional but keeps a great balance of being personal too. I have been to many other physios but I will not see anyone else now.”


“Kate is a superb therapist and has moved me quickly from despair to recovery.”


”Kate has terrific skills and sensitivity – she treats the whole person, not just the symptoms”


“I cannot sing enough praises for the treatment I received from Kate. Instead of treating the symptoms, she treated the cause of the problem.”

“Kate used a technique called visceral release to work on my internal organs, the effect has been amazing. I have had several sessions with Kate and the pain in my hip has almost gone. I can move freely and walk more easily.”


”FIVE STAR EXPERIENCE.  Kate looks at the body as a whole (both physically and emotionally) and is able to identify and treat the root cause of the pain.  This type of Physiotherapy is much more logical and effective than traditional Physiotherapy.  The best physio I have come across – thank you Kate.”
