My approach

My approach to care is patient-centred, collaborative, and based on trust and respect. I prioritise intuitive movement, body autonomy, and improving function and quality of life for my patients rather than focusing on weight or body size. Overall, my goal as a weight-inclusive physiotherapist is to support my patients in achieving their health goals in a way that is respectful, compassionate, and empowering.

We are a puppy-friendly practice.

My Philosophy

I reject the harmful and stigmatising beliefs that associate body weight with health status or personal worth. Instead, I focus on promoting body respect and body positivity to empower my patients to develop a positive relationship with their bodies. I recognise that my patients come from diverse backgrounds and experiences, and aim to create a safe and inclusive space where everyone feels valued and heard.

Personalised Care

Sally is passionate about her role within the multi-disciplinary team, which encompasses specialist assessment, advice, education, treatment and management of the various physical and psychological components of an eating disorder. She started her private practice to be able to support those living with eating and exercise disorders and uses a holistic approach to explore her clients' relationship with exercise in a safe and non-judgemental manner. 

Hi, I’m Sally

I'm Sally Partington (she/her), Founder and Principal physiotherapist at Movement Physio.

I am passionate about exploring your relationship with exercise and movement in a safe and non-judgemental manner. I take the time to listen to your story to connect with all aspects of your health – social, emotional, and physical. Understanding what matters to you is vital in providing holistic, patient-centred care. I believe our physical and mental health are linked, which is why I look at all aspects of someone’s health, not just the physical.


With a special interest in eating disorders, I am passionate about supporting individuals during recovery.
