Established in 2020 by owners Adey Saunderson and Julia Tisdale, At The Core is a Physiotherapy and Wellbing clinic, specialising in arthritis, rehabilitation and exercise.
Our patients have access to the cutting edge MBST® technology, which uses magnetic waves to reduce the inflammation and pain caused by arthritis or injury.
When combined with physiotherapy, we aim to work with our patients to help reduce pain and increase strength and mobility.
At The Core is located just off the famous Walcot Street in Bath. Nestled behind the lovely coffee shops and restaurants, At The Core can be found in Beehive Yard.
Initially call or email us to see how we can help you. Depending on your situation, we will explain how we can help, whether that’s Magnetic Resonance Therapy for arthritis or injury, strength training and rehabilitation or using our Alter G Anti-Gravity Treadmill.
We have a section all about MBST® on this website, or you can visit Medtec here for more detail. Alternatively, give us a call on 01225 461205.
We have a range of services from £10 (package price) for half an hour on the Alter-G Anti-Gravity treadmill, physiotherapy from £50 per 45minutes (package price) and £1100 - £1650 for MBST® packages. Get in touch and we’ll help you figure out what’s right for you!
You do not need a referral to start treatment, but knowledge is power and this can be helpful with regards to a specific diagnosis/stage of condition. If we are unable to confirm or diagnose your condition we will help you find the right route to establishing a diagnosis.
Active implants such as pacemakers, defibrillators (ICDs) and pain or insulin pumps require an individual assessment by a physician before suitability for MBST® therapy can be confirmed. This is due to the similarity in magnetic resonance technology. MBST® therapy may be deemed possible if the active implant is regarded by a medical professional as suitable for MRI scans. Breast implants, contraceptive implants and prosthetics are regarded safe in connection with MBST® therapy, in the same way that they are compatible with an MRI scan. We always advise that you consult a medical expert ahead of booking treatment.
At The Core clinics use the most up to date MBST® technology in delivering MBST® magnetic resonance therapy. The Arthro Spin Flex and Arthro Spin Lift devices generate an optimal magnetic resonance field of very high treatment quality compared with lower generation devices. Additionally, the Arthro range of MBST® devices are designed for use in nerve, post-surgical and would treatments. Please consider the advanced technology and high quality treatment that the Arthro range of MBST® therapy devices deliver when comparing treatment prices at other clinics.

Julia loves working with the patients, and seeing the positive impact that MBST, rehab and nutrition can have on their lives.

Joining the team in August 2022, Richard practices between the Primrose Hill and Bath clinics. His passion for unconventional environments has seen him work with patients from diverse backgrounds, spanning elite sport, private healthcare, and the NHS across 3 continents. Always placing the holistic development of patients at the centre of his practice, Richard is aware of the physical demands placed upon individuals in their day to-day pursuits and passions and that pain can have a negative impact on activity. Having worked with MBST therapy since 2008 in Spain, its use as a physiotherapy adjunct is what attracted him to join the team At The Core, in particular, its ability to reduce inflammation and eliminate pain so that patients can get back to exercising pain-free.
