Rachael Mason joined the MS Centre in 2014. After leaving school in 1993 Rachael qualified as a Dental Nurse progressing to Practice Manager during the 21 years with her previous and only other employer. She has qualifications in practice management, dental fields, first aid, AED and teaching ballet.
Rachael under the guidance and support of the team of trustees moved the centre from its previous premises of 33 years and started to grow our new centre with her team of volunteers to what you will experience when you visit.
‘I look forward to meeting every new person who joins our centre family and will always do my best to support, guide and advise to the best of my ability – Never a problem always a solution. My aim is to provide a centre with my team that no one wants to leave and no one ever feels alone or isolated. A big goal but along with my team – Teamwork makes the dream work!’
Rachael – (AKA Rae)
GlosO2therapy works in partnership with the Multiple Sclerosis Information & Therapy Centre to help raise funds to support the charity.
The MS Information and Therapy Centre is a small self-funded registered charity based in Frampton Road Gloucester. It is run by 1 part-time member of staff Rachael Mason (centre manager) and a team of volunteers, all promoting self-help. We are financed entirely by donations and constant fund raising events.
About Multiple Sclerosis (MS): MS is the most common Neurological condition affecting more than 100,000 people in the UK. At present it is incurable, and people living with the condition have to adapt to life with various different symptoms, where no two people are the same.
As a Centre we aim to provide guidance, support and various different therapies not only for people living with MS, but also, Other neurological and long term conditions and also pre / post surgeries and sports injuries.
The Centre is also used as a ‘social meeting place’. Here you, your family and carers can meet up with friends, relatives, and carers for help, support and information sharing or just a friendly chat. This is proving to be invaluable with the increasing anxieties associated with living with a long term condition. It is a haven for many to socialise no matter how limited their physical disabilities are and feel integrated back into the community. Carers can also take a much needed break.
The centre office opens 5 days a week Monday to Friday 0900-1300. (Other times by appointment only).
The treatments we offer are:
Oxygen Therapy, Remedial & Sports Massage, Acupuncture, Counselling, Cyclossage, Assisted Exercise
