The Mill Clinic was founded in early February 2014. The vision was to create a clinic that provides high quality treatments with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, where people of all ages could be treated for all manner of ailments.
The expansion of Tweedmill meant there was the opportunity to increase services to the local community and set up a clinic offering a whole range of other therapies that could be offered to almost everyone. The aim was to have a clinic that was easily accessible and had good link to local transport. Since Tweedmill is already very well established, especially since the recent renovations in early 2014, the timing was perfect for Mill Clinic to put down roots.
This clinic was designed to be a better access for health care, avoiding the long waiting lists for treatments. By offering a different approach to tackling difficult medical conditions, there has been a surge in demand of holistic therapies to alleviate pain and treat all manner of health problems.
With a good team of highly trained staff, Mill Clinic has been very well received and has proven that even smaller businesses can succeed during the current economic climate.

Sarah Bayliss - Sports Therapist
My name is Sarah and I am a doctor, a sports therapist and a sportsman. I have combined all my skills and passions into being a sports therapist.
I was brought up with sport, with my mother being a tennis coach. I spent much of my childhood at the local tennis club or riding my bike around our local estate. I also have memories of dressing in a nurses uniform and wanting to make people better from the age of about 4. Therefore my path was set very young.
I went to University when I left school and trained to be a Doctor, and here I discovered new sports and made lifelong friends. Since then I have represented Wales at elite and veterans levels in orienteering, and Great Britain at elite and masters levels in MTB orienteering. The highlight of my sporting career was winning my age class at the first Masters World MTB Orienteering Championships.
I have recently returned to university twice to further my knowledge and skills in sports injuries, physiology and psychology.
