The MS Therapy Centre has been operating for 34 years and provides a variety of therapies and services for people living with Multiple Sclerosis. Our aim is keep our members as mobile and as independent as possible within the confines of their condition. Our Vision is for a centre of excellence providing professional specialist therapies and support for people with MS in a self-help environment that inspires and empowers.
There are approximately 3,336 people in Beds and Northants living with MS, of which 795 are registered at with the Centre and 375 attend on a weekly basis. We have two newly diagnosed clients each week. The services we offer help people to self-manage their condition, and include; MS Specialist Nurse, Physiotherapy, Hydrotherapy, Adapted Gym, Counsellor, Dietician, Orthotics, Bowen Therapy, APS, Reflexology, Shiatsu, and more! Our specially adapted Minibus collects people from their homes who would not otherwise be able to get to the Centre. For some their weekly visit to the Centre is their only link with the outside world.
We do not receive any regular government funding and rely upon the goodwill of the local community and fundraising events.
