SO Pilates offer 24-hour cancellation policy, which provides a fair opportunity for all clients to attend at a time suitable to them.

To prevent loss of class credit, a class booking must be canceled at least 24 hours before class start time. If the class is canceled 24 hours or more before class start time, class credit will be returned to your account.

If the class is cancelled less than 24 hours before class start time, class credit will be forfeited. This is for ANY cancellation reason including, but not limited to, sickness, injury, traffic and transportation issues.

Classes will not run if there are less than 3 clients booked in.

If you are on the cancellation list and cannot make it you must remove yourself from the cancellation list – if you are auto selected for the class you are waiting on, the same notice of cancellation is still applicable.

Waitlist procedure

We operate on a first come first serve basis. Clients can add themselves to a waitlist for a full class.

If a spot opens up, due to cancellation, etc the first person in line gets added to the class automatically. If a second person cancels, the next person in line on the waiting list gets added.

The system will send an email letting you know you are off the waiting list and are now booked in for the class. If you are not added to the class, those still on the waiting list when the class starts will have their credit that was used to go on the waiting list automatically refunded.

I chose this practice due to the reviews and I honestly couldn’t have made a better decision. I would have no hesitation recommending SO Podiatry to anyone! I had a number of verrucas for over 5 years or so and had tried many ways to treat them over the years. After just 3 swift treatments at SO Podiatry, they’re gone completely. I wish I had of known about this treatment sooner, because now I wouldn’t chose any other treatment or practice. Fantastic service and friendly, professional staff. Thank you Stephanie!

Testimonials

Knowing how Stephanie had helped a friend to be able to continue her professional dancing career, I knew I was seeing the right person for my injury. My expectations were more than satisfied in just three weeks and I have been able to walk pain-free after two sessions, the third visit just a check up. The healing and comfort level in my foot continues. Initially fearing I might be virtually house-bound and hobbling to get anywhere, I am able to forget any injury and lead my usual busy life with great joy … and I mean it!! I think everyone should see you Steph!

Mrs A Suganami

After two treatments by Stephanie it was gone! No sign of the verruca on my heel at all. Everybody asks does it hurt. Yes, it does for a very short time. Pay affects people in different ways, for me it was so worthwhile that if I had another verrucae, I would be straight in to see Stephanie. The Swift microwave therapy causes a very short burst of pain, which makes one jump, but is over in seconds. It is no worse than needling. As the treatment progresses the discomfort level decreases to the point where at the end, I could hardly feel it. It really is no big deal ad I would recommend SO Podiatry and the Swift microwave treatment to anyone.

JRW

I can certainly rate Stephanie. My painful verrucae have totally gone, It is such a relief to be able to be on my feet without any pain after all these years.

A A, Worcester

My 11-year-old daughter had multiple warts on her hands and multiple verruca on her feet. She was embarrassed and had low confidence due to these embarrassing skin lesions. We had tried helping her with over-the-counter remedies and nothing made a difference. We had read about swift microwave therapy and its success rate, so we booked an appointment to speak with Steph at SO Podiatry to see if this treatment would be successful. Swift microwave therapy was the treatment of choice and after two sessions the Veruca and warts have totally gone. Our daughter is now back to her cheerleading and rock climbing activities which she loves, and we’re pleased to say she is now a much happier and more confident girl.

J. King, Worcester

Six months ago I visited So Podiatry and Steph was absolutely amazing in assessing my stance, posture, walking and running gait and then arranging for my custom orthotic insoles to be made by a leading UK supplier. She was informative, knowledgeable and communicative throughout, and I felt that the service was excellent value for money. The orthotics are amazingly comfortable and it took no time at all to get used to wearing them. I recently ran my first marathon, Steph’s advice, treatment and the custom made orthotics made all the difference.

Neil Dixon, Worcester

I’ve been coming to Steph for over a year now for toenail reconstruction and I can’t thank her enough for giving me my confidence back. My toenails have been damaged for years and I’ve always hidden my feet and felt self conscious about them but she’s made it possible for me to have them on show again and I’m so happy.

Miss C Parker

I found the service I got from Stephanie of SO Podiatry was excellent. She was very professional, knowledgeable and seemed to genuinely care about getting a good outcome. I would have no hesitation in recommending her and using her again.

S Gray, Worcester

My 13yr old son first saw Stephanie for a biomechanics appointment. He had frequent calf strains/pulls, and had been injured for 8 weeks. As well as prescribing some insoles, Stephanie recommended specific strengthening exercises. He is now back to playing football 4 times a week, stronger than ever!

Mrs N Parkin

I have seen Steph over the last nine months with a variety of foot ailments and found her to be very professional and approachable. However, most importantly, she has managed to cure my various problems – ingrowing toe nail, verrucae, biomechanics and corn under nail! I have no hesitation in recommending her.

Cliff

I used to suffer with incredible knee pain, it was a stabbing sensation that would stop me taking another step. It could be very painful, even at night so I took painkillers every morning and evening for it. Not any more. I just want to say thank you so much as can honestly say I haven’t had any pain in my knee since having MLS Laser treatment at SO Podiatry. I have since stopped taking all painkillers and I am using both legs as evenly as each other, it really is just amazing. At one point I thought I would need a knee replacement and now I’ve even thought about booking a cycling holiday.
