History of the Tilehurst Practice

How TPS Began

Tilehurst Physiotherapy Services (TPS) was established in Reading in 1984, by Jill Wigmore-Welsh, who dreamed of providing high quality therapy services for the local community. 

In 1987, the practice principle moved the business into its current location on the Tilehurst Road in Reading: the original black and white oval plaque is still on the front of the property

Business Growth

Between 1987 and 2003 TPS grew until the business was running clinics at sports venues, dance academies, high street locations, within corporate settings as well as having the clinic rooms and an office at Tilehurst Road. 

The business employed professional clinical staff and provided services in London, Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire.


Between 2003 and 2013, the business changed, and several clinics were closed when the practice principle qualified as a psychotherapist clinical hypnotherapist, and wellness coach in addition to being an HCPC  physiotherapist. The business changed it’s focus and began providing high quality compassionate wrap-around whole person, rehabilitation and recovery care. 

In 2006 Jill founded a training academy, for undergraduate and recent graduate healthcare professionals, and began to provide presentations at conferences

In 2008 the Legacy Life Podcast  was launched
