If you're suffering aches and pains from work, feeling the effects of sport or physical activity or just stressed with modern living - then the chances are massage can help! At physis, we have a team of massage practitioners offering a wide range of manual treatments - all to help get your life back on track.See More
Pilates at physis is about having fun and feeling good! Pilates is a form of low intensity exercise which uses individual controlled movements to challenge your muscular system, which in turn will help you to feel stronger and suppler. This can be beneficial in your rehab, but can also help in keeping you pain free. Unfortunately Pilates is not offered across all our sites.See More
Physiotherapy has been shown to be a cost effective way of reducing sickness absence, through both keeping your staff at work, and getting them fit to return to work following a musculoskeletal strain or sprain. Physis currently work with various companies by providing bespoke services suited to the company and employee's needs.See More
The vast majority of people will experience a significant bout of low back pain in their lifetime. Whilst we acknowledge the severity of the pain and the impact it can have on your life during this time, at Physis we know that with proper management and advice - the chances of you making a full recovery are extremely high.
We work hard to follow high quality evidence, avoid fads and trends, and not to perpetuate myths, which are often the reason people end up with longstanding or recurrent pain problems.
Most of us will experience a significant episode of neck pain. This can be a frightening and waring experience. We understand this. We know there are multiple factors that can contribute to the cause of your neck pain. We’ll identify these and provide solutions. So again, your outlook is very good, and with the right advice and management your chances of returning to your normal life are extremely high.
Activity is good for us! All of us! We know you want to get back to doing what you love as quickly as you can. Activity related injuries can affect everyone from the absolute beginner to the elite athlete. We know, because we treat them all! We understand a champion’s drive to get back to the winning spot. We understand the frustration caused by recurrent injuries, or the disappointment of making the change to start exercising, only to fall at the first hurdle. Whatever your level of activity or your aspiration, we have the skills to get you back to where you want to be. And better.
Generally, pain is what brings people to us, whether it’s arthritis, a simple sprain or a headache. Pain affects all areas of the body, and sometimes there seems to be no reason for it! But there will be! And the challenge for us is to figure out what is causing it, and then provide you with the appropriate treatment, management and advice.
As experts in musculoskeletal health, we see a broad range of work related injuries, medicolegal cases, post-surgical cases as well as general mobility problems where pain may not be the main issue. If you are unsure whether we can help, please give us a call and we can chat about your options.

For private treatments
If you’re paying for physiotherapy yourself, then you don’t need a GP referral to make an appointment. You’ll find our prices are competitive with other equally-qualified, private physiotherapy clinics. We can also offer discounted rates to members of sports clubs and corporate sports and health schemes; so if you’re the organiser or a member of one, please email us for more details: email@example.com or call us on 0131 478 4646 and we’ll be happy to help. To receive the discounted rate, cardholders just need to let us know which kind of card they have, when they make their appointment, and to bring the card with them when they come for their treatment.
For treatments covered by health insurance
We’re registered with all the major health insurance companies (please see the list below) which simply means that we can bill them directly for your treatment if you’re covered. Each individual insurance policy covers different treatments, so check with your insurer to see if yours includes physiotherapy. Your health insurance company may require a GP referral in order to pay for our treatment. Please note that it is your responsibility to contact your insurer to find out what is required - you may also need to obtain a claim no. prior to your initial treatment. All that we ask is that you give us the necessary details to bill on your behalf.
Insurance companies we’re registered with include: BUPA, Aviva, AXA PPP, Vitality Health, Simply Health, Nuffield, Allianz, Standard Life, Royal Sun & Alliance/First Assist, Remedi, Cigna, Medisure, and Western Provident Association. Please note that this is an ever-expanding list so check with us if your insurance company is not here (there's a good chance that we're already registered with them or can arrange to do so).
Insurance companies fees vary and can be different to those listed above due to administration charges.
Really good treatment from Physis. I've had 5 sessions, a combo of both massage and physio. Kept my body in tip top condition during my run as a physical performer during the Edinburgh fringe. They are absolutely lovely too. I cannot recommend them enough. You're in good hands 🙂
Professional and effective treatments. Totally recommend it!
Feel really looked after by Physis. They looked after my little niggles and tight muscles for the duration of my stay in Edinburgh. I was here performing in a very physical show and my body was able and well thanks to the expert physiotherapy and massage. I was even given exercises to do at home after the run of the show was finished. Very grateful for the care received.
I had a head injury and afterwards I suffered from neck pain, headaches and dizziness which I was extremely worried about. Being a physiotherapist myself, my mind started to think of the worst possible causes. I went to physis where my concerns were understood, and I was assessed thoroughly with great sensitivity, detail and expertise. I was so relieved afterwards and was able to just get on with my life again without worrying. On top of this, I was inspired to do further training in physiotherapy to better myself as a therapist and to help patients as much as I have been helped.
Physis has done a fantastic job of providing highly effective physiotherapy for me regarding several different problems. Their treatment combined technical excellence with the ability to both listen and provide clear explanations about the cause of each problem and the treatment, all in a manner that was both realistic and positive. I wanted to get better and feel better - physis was excellent at helping me do both
The service I received from physis was very professional with a strong public sense of medical responsibility. The consultation strikes a balance between ‘no nonsense' direction and sensitive patient care.
I would recommend physis to anyone who needs excellent physiotherapy with a friendly and personal touch.
I had every confidence in my therapist at physis who, at the first session, provided treatment and advice which brought about improvement in my condition within days.
I have always been made to feel very welcome at physis. All staff I have dealt with have been extremely friendly and professional at all times. My dignity and feelings are always respected.
The service at physis is very polite from when you come in until you leave. My treatment was excellent. Everything which was wrong was explained and the exercises and stretches prescribed have worked great.
Without my ongoing treatment at physis, I would not be able to do as much in my day to day life.
The service at physis is completely personal yet highly professional and the results have been, to me anyway, exceptional.
I was treated for an ITB injury back in February/March whilst training for a marathon. He got me back up and running and gradually back in to my training again after a few weeks and I was able to complete my first marathon in London last weekend just outside my 4hr target. A big thank you for the help and advice. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Physis.
i have been treated for whiplash, shoulder and wrist pain at trinity and they know what they are doing, the professional that treated me pin pointed the pain and got rid asap,and thought me a few moves to keep my back in check, very understanding and very nice people, it was a pleasure, would recommend any day.
Did a really good job in fixing an injury from touch rugby and taught me about the stretches and things to do to stop the injury from happening again. Highly recommend them.
I have used this wonderful team of physio's for my family needs and for the needs of West Lothian Artistic Gymnastics Club for many years. We have always found the service to be second to none. Appointment making is efficient and easy and the advice and care excellent. Physis have aided the recovery of many of our gymnasts which has been a tremendous support to their safe return to a full training programme as quickly as possible. We will continue to make Physis our physio of choice. Thank you Physis
I have been using Physis physios for more years and more injuries than i care to remember. As a skier, S&C coach and Lecturer in sports coaching i have put my body through a lot and these guys never fail to fix me. Their service is straight to the point, efficient and it always works. I have never had to wait for an appointment, unless they have told me i need to wait until the swelling goes down, and their care is second to none. I would and have reccommended them to every athlete and fellow coach who has been unfortunate enough to be in need of treatment. Thanks don't seem enough, they're a first class team
