Nutritional Therapy Services

Our Nutritional Therapist, Emma Robinson offers one-one consultations here at Bury Physio. Emma has a huge interest and passion in Nutritional Science, and the impact our food and lifestyle choices has on our health and wellbeing.


Emma has a Bachelor of Science with Honours in Nutrition from Oxford Brookes University and a Master of Science in Nutritional Therapy from The University of Worcester. She is registered with The British Association of Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT) and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and ensures she abides by their code of conduct.


Emma follows the Functional Medicine Model, which means Emma dives into the root issues underpinning her client’s health concerns, allowing a focus for symptom support through the science of Nutritional Therapy. All Emma’s nutritional and lifestyle recommendations and guidelines are of high quality and are underpinned by the latest scientific evidence. Emma’s approach is very supportive and encouraging and she ensures that her recommendations are tailored specifically to each client and are therefore realistic and sustainable for them.


Prior to the initial consultation Emma will send a health questionnaire and a three-day food diary to her clients.

The initial (90 minutes) consultation will provide:

  • A detailed understanding of client’s health history, family history, current symptoms, diet and lifestyle
  • Comprehensive nutrition education and explanation of health concerns 
  • Identifying client specific health goals 
  • An in-depth personalised nutrition and lifestyle protocol 
  • Resources, recipes, meal plan ideas and additional support is included 
  • A personalised summary report will be sent after each consultation (this includes any suggested dietary and lifestyle changes)

Follow up consultations (45 minutes) can help assess progress and update client’s protocol. They provide clients with the opportunity to ask any questions that have arisen since starting their changes, as well as enforcing knowledge and providing clients with motivation and further recommendations.

Tests Available:

Emma can offer a number of tests to help support her nutritional recommendations, these include:

Food Intolerance Testing

Can be very helpful to identify any food sensitivities or foods that people are reacting to, which can then help people to optimise their diet to help support their symptoms.


The food intolerance test is a finger prick test and can check intolerance to over 200 foods and drinks. It extremely accurate, as it tests for the immune reaction of all four sub types of food specific IgG antibodies in the blood, these are produced when somebody has intolerance to certain foods.


This test is suitable for adults and children (ages 2-17yrs) and is Practitioner only, so would need to be ordered through Emma. Please contact her for more details.

Comprehensive Stool Analysis

The stool test is an extremely good indicator of gut and microbiome health, it lets us know what is ‘going on’ inside the digestive system to be leading to the gut symptoms the client is experiencing.


It looks for multiple biomarkers that help assess inflammation, immune function, digestion, gut barrier integrity and the composition of the microbiome.


This test is suitable for adults and children (ages 2-17yrs), is a simple and easy home testing kit and is Practitioner only, so would need to be ordered through Emma. Please contact her for more details.
