Give someone you love the gift of health this year, with an ALO Christmas Gift Voucher!

Dec 1, 2021

Are you bored of receiving the same pair of Christmas socks and pyjamas every year? We thought so!

With so many sales, alluring gift boxes and pre-wrapped gift ideas… it can be easy to be tempted by generic ‘ready-made’ gifts at Christmas time. With so many people to gift for, it sure does seem like a great idea at the time…we get it! However, how many times have you bought a gift for a friend only to find out some else had already bought this for them, or perhaps they bought this for someone else themselves!

The true idea behind a real gift, is to give someone something that you know they wouldn’t necessarily buy for themselves as it seems too ‘luxurious’ or ‘extravagant’ or is simply something that they overlook. Because of this, as a society we often neglect our own health let alone the health of those around us. For those of us advanced in age, or those of us who have suffered with injury and pains, we know health and well-being is the most valuable gift there is!

Gift giving falls under three categories, whether you know it or not…

1). The gift they want

2). The gift they need

3). The gift they really need but won’t ask for!

Despite how well we think we know someone; gift giving is always a hard task and makes you question how much you really know about your friends and family… Do I get them the gift they want like a sought after iPhone… Or, do I get them the gift they need like a new washer-dryer for the house? – all valid ideas. However, what about the gift they really need? What about the gift that deep down you know they need but they won’t ask you for?

Generally speaking, most of us will have a friend or family member that suffers with persistent aches and pains for one reason or another. However, as a result of the pandemic and periods spent working from home, we now all know many people complaining of new aches, pains and ailments. Once you realise what it is that someone really needs, gift giving couldn’t be easier! Treat someone you love this Christmas to the gift of health with an ALO Christmas Gift Voucher. This won’t be the gift they’ll ask you for, but it will be the gift they’ll thank you for once they are relieved of pain!

The perfect gift to give this Christmas is full health and a pain-free Christmas celebration with family and friends. What could be a better gift then restoring mobility. For a lot of us, injury and pains stop us from doing the things we love. Back ache stops us from carrying our grand-children, knee-pain stops us from walking far distances and neck ache stops us from getting a good night’s sleep! Help your loved ones get back to doing the things they love this Christmas by restoring them back to their former pain-free selves.

Whether you know someone who has had a long-term pain that they’ve just become accustomed to, or they are experiencing a brand-new pain – we believe prevention is better than cure. You can treat a loved one to either a relaxation or sports massage.

The key benefits of Massage:

  • Improved muscle recovery
  • Relaxation
  • Increased flexibility
  • Improvements in immune function
  • Better sleep quality
  • Injury prevention
  • Reduce pain
  • Reduce muscle tension

There are so many benefits to having a Massage, many people say that they notice an improvement not only in performance in sports but also at work. Alongside our busy schedules and keeping fit at the gym it is just as important that we prioritise time for the body’s tissues to rest and restore, this is where a Sports Massage can really help you in your recovery.

How is Sports Massage different to other forms of massage? A sports Massage is a specific therapeutic technique which targets injury regions. It is designed by your Physiotherapist for your individual body’s biomechanical needs, and the movements required for your sports and job.

With many services to choose from, including Pilates and Physiotherapy why not go ahead and treat your friends and family to the gift they really need this Christmas with an ALO Gift Voucher.




Since seeing Louise (following an Achilles rupture repair), I have:

- Made it back onto tennis / squash courts to (tentatively!) celebrate 1 year anniversary of my surgery 
- Ran my fastest 10k at 43.57! 
- Ran 5k in 21:30 (vs pre-surgery PB of 20:18) 
- I increased my single leg calf lift to 59 kg (vs ~18 kg initially a few months ago) 
- I had a final appt with my consultant, who discharged me while congratulating me on a wonderful recovery

All the above is to illustrate that I'm absolutely delighted with the progress I have made since last summer when I couldn't do anything and the outlook seemed bleak. I'll be forever grateful for Louise’s guidance and support as I've navigated the long road back from my injury, and I appreciate the continued advice to help me prepare for more dynamic activity. Louise has been really fantastic and I couldn't have asked for better care.

Recovering from a full Achilles rupture. Started my work with Nina in feb and my progress has only been positive and upwards and I am almost at full speed again. Nina put me back together again almost from scratch. She is the best physio I have ever worked with and will again. Very knowledgable and very hard working. Can’t recommend enough.


What a great find! My orthopaedic surgeon recommended them and I can't rate Luigi, Gloria and the team more highly. Excellent service and very effective treatment- recovering nicely!


I am 84 years old, and have always been fit and healthy and exercised regularly. 3 years ago I underwent emergency surgery for peritonitis, and had a colonoscopy bag for 6 months and straight after surgery to reversal of the stoma. After this surgery I felt my legs very weak. To complete my drama, during the last summer I developed an abdominal hernia and had surgery for hernia repair. This made me even weaker specially at my legs. I have recovered but felt weak. I started my sessions at ALO Physiotherapy at the beginning of January, with the Vibra Machine combined with specific exercises. I have now recovered my body strength, particularly in the legs. I am now walking normally and without pain. I am delighted!


Great clinic with great people! I was so lucky to find this clinic and even more when I met Andre. He's a very talented therapist and a wonderful person who makes you feel comfortable every time. He helped me to resolve my back problems in few appointments and I will be always grateful to him! From my experience is the best clinic in London and I highly recommend them without any doubts!


One of the best physiotherapy centres in the world! The professionalism and knowledge of this centre amazed me.


I am so glad I found this clinic. Luigi has been amazing. After my 1st session I felt an improvement and now have ALOT more movement and significant reduction in pain. I couldn’t recommend this clinic & Luigi enough. So helpful and flexible whenever I have needed to amend appointments. Every one is fantastic. I will continue to come here for as long as I need.


Andre is the best physiotherapist I came across. As a dedicated martial arts practitioner, I regularly use his services. He has always managed to fix my various back and leg injuries. I would recommend Alo Physiotherapy to anyone who suffers from body pain.


Where do I begin? The journey has been too long with Andre Oliveira and ALO Clinic , as he helped me both physically and mentally to overcome an injury I had in both of my knees. A small injury , after following wrong treatment became chronic and I found myself unable to walk/stand/run and do the simplest things- the mental impact was worse. I was introduced to Andre by Eleftherios Pavlidis who runs Laertion in Athens. lefteris with his team were the first to accommodate the problem and told me what I need to do. As a Londoner, I was introduced to Andre and ALO Clinic, and the rest is history. Since February 2017 when I had the first session with Andre and he identified the biomechanic nature of the problem, along with the use of Tecar the results were visible after one month. Since then, along with personal effort and strengthening I did always guided by Andre, I the problem is restored and the pain is gone. I highly recommend ALO Physiotherapy Clinic , and Andre Oliveira for anyone who suffers from sport injuries , amateurs or professional top athletes.


Very professional staff and friendly environment. I felt a lot better after very first session. Appointment are easily available. I would definitely recommend this place


The care I received from ALO Physiotherapy was outstanding from the first session to the last. Sessions with Louise were informative as well as practical, allowing me to understand the context/logic behind treatment as well as tips to prevent future injuries. Louise was always readily available to answer my questions and the treatment process was collaborative rather than being prescriptive. Beyond the expertise of the team the quality of the equipment and facilities was incredibly high and aided my recovery significantly. I would recommend ALO Physiotherapy to anyone who requires physiotherapy treatment in the Marylebone area.

ALO is an excellent well-run clinic and Louise Hynes who looked after me is a superb physiotherapist. Louise is knowledgeable, skilled and very efficient at her job. My sore shoulder was sorted out in no time thanks to her. Thank you, Louise, and thank you ALO.
