Steven Tinning | FNAMMT, SST
Alongside Stuart Evans, I am Partner and co-owner of Clarendon Clinic and I have 15 years of experience in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions.
I was awarded Fellowship of the National Association of Massage and Manipulative Therapists (FNAMMT); being only the second Fellowship awarded by the governing body after the founder. I served as a board member of NAMMT for several years and continue to act as a consultant. I was on the board of the Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) for two-years, as representative for remedial massage in the UK. I am a full member of the prestigious British Society of Sports Therapists.
I am qualified in Spinal and Joint Manipulation, Advanced Remedial Massage, Sports Therapy, Electrotherapy and many different physiotherapy techniques.
When a patient comes to me I believe that the most important thing is to treat the cause as well as the symptoms of the condition and I assess and treat conditions holistically. I see dozens of people every week and consider it an honour and a privilege to do so. I never make a patient attend for treatment more than needed. I love my work and enjoy the challenge of every treatment.
It's often noted by the patients that Clarendon Clinic is like a family. Every member of the staff is longstanding and from the partners, reception staff, massage therapists and associated practitioners; all patients are treated with the very best of care and understanding.
Natalie Tinning |
Since qualifying as a Remedial Massage Therapist at the Northern Institute of Massage 7 years ago I have worked at Clarendon Clinic and every day I continue to learn from treating our patients and the knowledge and expertise of Stuart and Steve.
I am keen to help patients using assessment and treatment to assist in pain, injury management and rehabilitation, I have come to understand each individual’s journey from pain and dysfunction back to normal movement and a life with little or no pain.
I am pleased to have been able to get excellent results using a combination of my skills and experience. Often the clinic's patients are referred to me following their treatment program for Pilates based instruction 1on1, to further increase their strength, stability and mobility leading to improved fitness and quality of life.
I am a Certified Rehabilitative Breast Cancer Exercise Specialist and am especially proud to teach The Pink Ribbon Program, which is a post-operative, Pilates-based, recovery program; developed by a survivor for survivors to help regain mobility, and improve strength and posture. It uses the principles of Pilates exercises and focuses on shoulder mobility and strength to reduce pain and improve function. It can really help regain confidence and improve well-being.
Exercise post cancer has been shown to greatly improve quality of life and this program is often the first step towards returning to normal exercise.
The Program is usually taught over 6 weeks, either 1:1 or in small groups but can be adapted as necessary. It is equally suitable for recent survivors and those whose surgery was some time ago but who have failed to recover full mobility.
I am a fully qualified Women’s Wellness Exercise Specialist and enjoy helping women with a range of issues from pre and post-natal problems such as symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD) and diastasis recti (abdominal separation) through to menopause and osteoporosis.
I am also a qualified Thermo-Auricular Therapist (also known as Hopi Ear Candling), which is a relaxing, complementary therapy that aims to help symptoms associated with the ear, nose and throat. Those who may benefit include those struggling with:
• hay fever
• anxiety and stress
• post flying and driving pressure
• swimmer’s ear
• yeast infections
• colds and flu
I particularly enjoy working with older or housebound people helping to improve mobility and function through massage and exercise and have a special interest in Stroke Rehabilitation.
I am available for clinic or home appointments: Monday’s, Tuesday’s and Friday mornings. On Wednesday’s and Thursday’s I work for the Clinic.

Christine Allardyce |
Christine has been receptionist at Clarendon Clinic for over 15 years. Christine joined the clinic in October of 2006 where she is one of two part -time receptionists.
She works the latter end of the week whilst her colleague (the other Chris) works the early part.
Some of her main duties include greeting the patients as they enter clinic, answering the phone to diarise patient appointments, receiving payments and dealing with administrative duties involving maintaining patient records etc.
Christine's working like started out as a sales ledger/credit control clerk at a small regional catering supplier in Salford.
As the company expanded into a much larger international concern (Bidvest Group) she became a credit control supervisor heading up a small team of credit control/sales ledger clerks. She was responsible for managing and the recovery of multi-million pound debts and creating and maintaining hundreds of customer accounts.
On some occasions she would visit customers along with company representatives to resolve queries and agree payment for outstanding debts from business owners and directors of companies alike.
Following centralisation of the credit control functions to an office in Merseyside, Christine then moved into the Finance Department based in the Salford depot where she became a Financial Accounts Assistant reporting ultimately into the Finance Director.
In the summer of 2006 and following 30 years of service, Christine decided it was time for a change and looked to adopt a more flexible work/life balance.
In her spare time Christine enjoys her holidays, especially in the past decade visiting the South of France on many occasions, is an avid tennis fan and enjoys social ballroom dancing as well as walking her adorable black labrador, Missy.
