Rowan House Centre – About Us

Welcome to Rowan House Centre.  We have been a family run business for over 25 years based at our current location in Hethersett, near Norwich.  Initially set up as Norfolk’s first serviced offices, Rowan House has expanded, developed and changed over time to meet the changing demands of small and medium businesses.  Its most recent development was again driven and led by local demand and our local knowledge, turning the original part of the building into a Health and Wellbeing Centre.

This most recent change of emphasis has been guided by Rachel Pailes (daughter of Mary and Graham Tuddenham, cofounders of Rowan House).  Rachel is a Chartered Physiotherapist who has over 10 years’ experience of working in the NHS.  She has seen the changing nature of NHS services and the increasing demand for the private sector driven by patient choice and government programmes such as ‘any qualified provider’ and ‘direct payments’.

Rachel understands the complex nature of health and wellbeing and the importance of individual choice in maximising recovery and reaching potential.  By bringing together likeminded therapists she is creating a centre which offers this choice, by promoting a broad range of therapies for the mind, body and soul.
