Berkshire MS Therapy Centre

Berkshire MS Therapy Centre supports the health and wellbeing of local people with Multiple Sclerosis. In a safe, supportive and understanding environment we provide specialist treatments not available elsewhere including physiotherapy, oxygen treatment, counselling, footcare and a range of complementary treatments including massage and acupuncture. There is no cure for MS but the right support can allow our members to live more mobile, confident and independent lives.

Founded 1982

    The Centre supports over 1,000 people with MS, as well as their families and carers, providing over 10,000 treatments and therapies every year.
