In 1995 after graduating and completing their compulsory year-long work experience in Aberdeen, husband and wife team Eugene and Valerie Pearce managed to secure premises in Abban street Inverness that would double as their home and a clinic.
Shortly afterwards, they came first in the Highlands and Islands Business Awards and second in the national PSYBT/RBS Awards. The prize money was reinvested into the business to purchase another treatment bench; this meant Eugene and Valerie could work simultaneously and so double the number of appointments each day.
23 years later, the business has grown into one of the most state-of-the-art clinics in Scotland. They have expanded the clinic by purchasing the building next door. The additional space has been used to house a spinal rehabilitation room, X-ray equipment and a bone densitomer (DEXA Osteoporosis Scanner).
On 16th September 2008 they opened their new clinic at the old station building, Dornoch (on the Dornoch to Embo Road). Dornoch is open on Monday, Tuesday & Thursday. On those days appointments can be made on 01862 810939. Phone 01463 717084 if Dornoch clinic is closed.
Eugene and Valerie now have a full team of staff and colleagues, and have welcomed their son Henry into the practice in August 2020. They have extended their services to include Chiropody, Spinal Rehabilitation, Physiotherapy, Massage.
