Covid_19 is a deadly virus that has claimed many lives all across the world including many in the UK. We have followed the Government advice very carefully and took appropriate measure to gradually re-open our clinics.
It was a very tough decision as protecting lives and protecting NHS had always been our key concern. As all of our nurses work in the NHS, we had to be extra careful and approach this critical decision with the delicacy, professionalism and care that it deserves.
We believe we have secured the right balance between our patients demand, our nurses limited availability and most important of all – the safety of the patient and public.

Superseded message on the 19 March 2020
It is with sadness, that we have made the decision to temporarily close all of our clinics as of 8pm, Monday 23rd March. We have taken every precautionary measure to keep the health and wellness of our staff, clients, friends and family safe to date, but with the escalating situation to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we feel it is time to close the doors to our clinics while leaving the following open:
1. Telephone consultations
2. Virtual consultations
Our mission has been to changing the lives of women globally. We will continue this effort digitally and rest assured, we will continue with this mission once we reopen our clinics, with the ambition of re-opening our doors on as soon as they are safe to do so.
All our nurses work for the NHS and at a time of global and national crisis, their services are greatly needed to save lives. It is only time like this we realise who the real heroes are. We hope that the nation does not forget their sacrifice once we are over these testing times.
We are currently calling all clients to reschedule any outstanding appointments.
Please also find FAQs below.
- Daily manual squeezes as you may have been taught by your practitioner.
- Use of apps to help remind you, such as the NHS Squeezy app.
- We hope to record some simple guidance via a video from our nurses and midwives ( These may be less professional than our usual quality as our team are all self-isolating, but will nonetheless be informative and helpful)
- Use of simple self-purchased devices such as the Neen educator ( which our nurses can explain via the telephone if necessary), and our own range of Kegel weighted balls which we were due to launch next month with professional videos. ( Again we may need to record some interim instructions). These retail at £49.99 and as a special offer we are offering free postage and packing to UK addresses for all our existing patients during the lockdown period.
You will need to follow the below advice issued by public health England:
To avoid spreading infection:
If you live alone, do not leave your home for 7 days
Do not leave your home for 7 days from when your symptoms started, however mild they are.
If your temperature is still high after 7 days, stay at home until it’s back to normal.
If you live with other people, keep everyone at home for 14 days
The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill.
It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the spread of infection to others in the community.
A high temperature (indicated by thermometer or feeling hot to touch on chest and/or back)
A new continuous cough. New: means a cough that you’ve not had before, or if you usually have a cough, it’s got worse.
Continuous: means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours.
Our clinics are temporarily closed in light of the current situation with COVID-19. As a responsible provider we have taken this decision to close to ensure the safety of our clients and employees and supporting them through this uncertain time.
We will be working in line with government guidelines and will re-open accordingly. To stay up to date with the latest information please regularly visit our website. You can also follow us on our social channels Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
