Our Story, Our Mission

Our Story

Our clinic was founded by our clinic director, Kirsty Ritzema in May 2016. She decided that treatment was not client focussed a lot of the time in a clinic setting and was either what the therapist wanted or therapists looking at data/research rather than truly listening to the person in front of them. After spending 13 years in the health and fitness industry already, Kirsty decided enough was enough and opened The Bodyworks Clinic to start changing the way therapy was offered to the public. 

At The Bodyworks Clinic, we work together with our clients to get the results they need in order to achieve their goals. We charge for our time and expertise rather than adding extra charges for additional services that we are recommending for you (we don't want to penalise you for our choice of treatment plan!) 

Raising The Bar


Why I work here by Beth

I love working for the Bodyworks Clinic. I started working here in the middle of June 2021 and this clinic has given me a great sense of purpose in helping clients to achieve their goals and start the process of recovery. I am continuing to develop and grow within my time at the clinic and keen to learn so much more. My mission is to make clients happy on their road to recovery and I am happy to help with questions in order to build the understanding that they have around their injury/condition. I am super friendly, kind and wanting to be part of the change in MSK care movement.

Why I work here by Dan

I have been a member of the Bodyworks family since April 2021. I got my degree in Sports Therapy and Rehab with the intention of helping people and that is exactly what we do at The Bodyworks Clinic every day! The clinic always places the client's wellbeing above all else. We work to provide a safe and comfortable environment whilst providing top of the range treatment ranging from injury assessment to relaxation massage. I believe this job is perfect for me!
My client's safety and comfort is paramount. I will always try to push above and beyond for my clients taking in their comments, desired goals and feelings. Together we work to make their recovery effective, run and as quick as possible.
