Founder and Clinical Lead Physiotherapist Doug Jones has created his signature “SitStrong” programme, combining impartial advice, re-education, training and support through a range of in-house solutions.

These solutions are all designed to undo what the chair does to your posture.






Altius Healthcare aims to bring their team of experts as well as knowledge, passion and enthusiasm within elite, professional sports to the corporate environment. Some of the individuals and teams we continuously work with include:







We have also visited businesses, providing those who request treatment, a ten minute chair massage. This allows individuals the chance to experience our services in the comfort of their office, helping to eleviate stress, tension and possible anxiety. This has been followed with a presentation discussing the harmful effect of prolonged sitting with practical advice and help on how to undo this.





The previous event held at Bruntwood’s Trafford House, world renowned sports psychologist Jamie Edwards provided invaluable insight into prolonged sitting and the relationship in mindset to sport, business and lifestyle decisions.

Altius Healthcare practitioners Anna Jones, James Collinge, Michael Brown-Fraser along with Doug Jones carried out two sessions of ten minute Chair Massage treatments to individuals and businesses based there. This was followed by Jamie’s signature “SitStrong” Presentation, which was warmly received by those who attended.
