Tim Humphries BSc (Hons) MCSP AACP

Tim Humphries qualified with a BSc (Honours) degree in Physiotherapy in 1997 from Brunel University College, Isleworth, London. He is a Chartered Physiotherapist and is a member of the Health Care and Professions Council and the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists.

For six months after qualification he worked at the Royal Brompton Hospital, Kensington specialising in cardiac and respiratory physiotherapy before moving with his family to West Mersea, Essex in February 1998. There he worked at Colchester General Hospital rotating around different physiotherapy departments gaining experience before transferring to Halstead Hospital, Essex where he specialised in out-patient physiotherapy.

In 1999 he set up his first private practice in West Mersea where, over the years, he has helped many hundreds of people improve their quality of life by reducing pain and improving normal function (see home page for extensive list of conditions treated). This is achieved through various evidence-based, hands-on treatment techniques as well as advice regarding self-management and exercise.

Tim left the NHS in 2003 to concentrate fully on his private work, however, he has maintained connections with the NHS through local GP contracts. 

Tim opened his Tiptree Physiotherapy Clinic in June 2007 and this has gone from strength to strength owing to his commitment to providing professional, quality and evidence-based physiotherapy assessment and treatment. In November 2012 as part of business expansion Tim opened up a third practice in Manningtree.

"I found Tim locally when I suddenly had awful back pain. He was excellent from our first conversation and I've always felt very comfortable.  He has done well working with my ongoing pain and doesn't push me into treatments that I don't need. I highly recommend him." ~ Isabella, Tiptree

  • "Having recently suffered a bout of painful sciatic like symptoms in my right leg and a very uncomfortable right buttock, particularly when driving my car, I urgently sought help and made contact with Tim Humphries who promptly fitted me in with an appointment in which he diagnosed that I was suffering from Piriformis Syndrome. He recommended a short series of treatments together with exercises which soon brought the pain and discomfort under control. Apart from identifying the cause of the problem I was particularly impressed with the follow up treatment which was given in a very effective, professional and friendly manner. Consequently I have no hesitation in recommending Tim’s physiotherapy practice for the treatment of Piriformis Syndrome."
    Richard L, Feering

  • "I would like to thank Tim Humphries for the treatment I've received from him. I had severe neck issues and was struggling with day to day life. Tim gave me some great advice and his knowledge, professional, friendly approach was outstanding. I had a 6 week treatment and am happy with how my situation has progressed. I would recommend Tim and his company to anyone."
    Richard O, Tiptree
