Physio & Health Matters was set up in May 2000 at a time of change in her life. Over the years it has evolved into a thriving business. They are now in multiple locations and their main aim is to provide the clients and the local communities with a high quality professional service.
Kiran’s main interest area has been the sacro iliac joint and the spine as a whole; with a bias towards bio-mechanics and how the two interact. Bio-mechanics and the sacro iliac joint are two areas that have historically been poorly understood. She would like to have the time to look further into these two specialisms and write her own course and teach, to aid a better understanding within her peer group.
The journey of setting up the business and developing it has taught a many lessons and helped to shape in to the person she is today; for that she is grateful.
In 2012 Kiran was very fortunate to be selected to be a part of the Paralympics medical squad. That was a wonderful experience, that she will always cherish. She loves the outdoors and animals. In Kiran’s spare time she enjoys running, going to the gym and spending time with her family.
Paul joined Physio & Health Matters in February 2020 as Practice Manager with a view to supporting Kiran in the management and development of the business. Paul has had a long and successful management career within several business sectors and hopes that he can use this experience to benefit the company.
He loves living in the countryside, socialising with friends and is a passionate rugby fan.

I have been the Bookkeeper for Physio and Health Matters since September 2016. I have my own bookkeeping and management accounting business and several clients I visit regularly to help them complete that day-to-day bookkeeping tasks plus giving them ongoing bookkeeping and financial management advice. I have always enjoyed working with numbers and after completing my Accounting and Management degree at Cardiff University in 2002 I moved from Somerset to Herefordshire and started working in a private accountancy practice. After working in practice completing Audits and Accounts for a few years I moved into industry with a company just north of Hereford starting as their Assistant Finance manager and progressing to their Finance Manager, however after working for other people for 12 years I decided in 2014 to go out on my own! Most of my spare time outside of work is spent either walking my Sprocker Spaniel ‘Oakley’ or watching my husband race his vintage off-road motorcycle machine around the UK and Europe! I met my husband at the motorcycle racing 22 years ago as my dad also races bikes and still does even at the young age of 70! I am also part of the organising team for the racing and am secretary for the European Classic Motorcycle Organisation which runs the European Classic Motocross championship each year.
