June 2022 Update
Summer is pretty much upon us, although it is still rather on the windy side! We are looking forward to our first BBQs over the next few months! You never know, I may even start a recipe page! I am trying out exciting sugar-free recipes that are also lower in carbs.
I hope you all managed to enjoy the Jubilee either as a celebration or used the time to catch up on jobs and some well-deserved rest!
Following the change in restrictions regarding facemasks, from 13th June 2022, it will no longer be mandatory for my patients to wear masks. Please can you contact me should you wish to discuss this further. PPE will be available on request for those patients who would be more comfortable for me to wear a face shield (together with an apron and gloves). I am happy to provide masks on request. Hand sanitiser is readily available in the clinic.
I look forward to seeing you in the not-too-distant future.
Welcome to ADH Clinic
My training, skills, development and experience of the past two decades allows me to work with clients in a holistic manner, always taking into account the needs of the individual, their objectives and personal circumstances.
Hands-on therapies can be a key element in helping an individual recover from times of stress, specific health conditions, injury, post-operatively or stroke. The application of specific exercises can also play a vital role in a person’s rehabilitation, recovery from illness, or need for improved general wellbeing.
I’m excited to welcome my lovely patients back to my new and updated clinic, and look forward to meeting new patients alike.
Very best wishes to you all.

See what some of the clients are saying...
"I was referred to Andrea by a friend as my hand was stiff and swollen after a wrist bone break. After a few sessions of massage, manipulation and monitored exercises there was immediate and progressive improvement. Andrea is extremely knowledgeable and professional and I wouldn’t hesitate to consult her regarding any physical issues. Her expertise is wide ranging and treatment and care is tailored to ones individual needs."
"I was first referred to Andrea through The Nuffield some 16 years ago. We have been on a journey together through different events in my life supporting me greatly particularly through both my pregnancies with massage and reflexology. Andrea is without doubt the most amazing therapist and her hands on approach is her art. I always look forward to my appointments with her."
"I have been a client of Andrea’s for many years having originally gone to her following a referral from my employer Avon and Somerset Constabulary. Andrea treated me in a way which enabled me to continue in my role as a Police Officer with old road traffic accident injuries. My continued treatment over the years by Andrea was I believe the main reason that my career successfully continued and I was able to function pain free. In more recent years Andrea has supported me in managing a new and sometimes debilitating health condition and her professionalism, insight and knowledge ensure that I am able to trust in her work to fully support holistically. I have complete faith in Andrea in her role and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone needing personalised holistic support."
"Whether it was an injury from surfing, running, general sporting niggles or the wear and tear of computer/office based work, Andrea always reset my body to be ready to go again. The brilliant deep muscle sports massages I highly recommend."
"This is to say a huge thank you for taking the time to look at, diagnose and treat my painful shoulder. I'm not sure what you did exactly but whatever it was, you have worked a minor miracle in a relatively short space of time. The next morning my shoulder was sore, as you said it might be, but I still had the additional movement we both saw the previous evening. Since then, I've been doing the 'gentle exercises' you suggested and have tried not to sleep on that side to allow time for healing. As I write this, only a few days later, I almost have full movement of the shoulder again and although still sore, it is so much better than before. Previously, I was getting quite depressed about the pain and lack of movement I've experienced for the last 2 months, and I had almost resigned myself to that forever. It's actually quite unbelievable what you've done for me, and I can't thank you enough. I've no hesitation whatsoever in recommending you to anyone who needs similar treatment."
"Andrea’s treatment is the best massage I could have asked for. I had many massages previously, but her unique and personalised approach is what I needed for pain relief. She is also the only therapist to have taken the time and effort to understand my daily work routine in order to help me manage my condition and pain prevention."
"I have had the absolute delight of meeting this lovely lady Andrea, who is by far the most professional massage therapist I have ever had. Andreas clinic is absolutely immaculate throughout & makes you feel cared for & very safe. I have always felt at ease & totally relaxed from start to finish at all of my appointments. Andrea is exceptional at her job & goes above & beyond to make sure that your appointment is all about you & your needs, i do suffer with back & neck problems so her massages are amazing for me, there's nothing this lady can not do for you. She tailors to your physical needs in every way possible! Her professional knowledge shines through in everything she does, i have complete faith in Andrea & always look forward to my appointments never wanting to leave, i can not recommend this lady enough “absolutely amazing."
"When I came to Mrs Douthwaite-Hodges I had peripheral neuropathy in my feet and legs up to my knees, (it had started with shingles a decade before). Although I had been having massage every month or two, prior to meeting Mrs Douthwaite-Hodges , it had continued to increase annually upward towards my spinal cord, I did not like it. Since Mrs Douthwaite-Hodges has been treating my feet and legs the neuropathy has lessened , and is now little enough to allow some feeling in my feet."
