Renata has lots of helpful ideas, a very positive, encouraging manner and a nice sense of humour – all essential, I think, in a physio. She quickly established my capabilities and began on some exercises. I was impressed by her promptness contacting my last physio – now in Australia – for hand over notes and her ready reference to what I’ve been working on. She has a real understanding and experience of my problems – I’ve had many physios with whom this was not the case.

The physiotherapy received from Maria Kanaki has been excellent. She knows her stuff and has an excellent manner with her patient George. She is not afraid to undertake a challenging session and tries her very best with George. His progress is down to her expertise. I am impressed - this comes from a fellow physio!

We are very happy with the service you provide. Our physio is warm and friendly with my daughter and has been very thoughtful in providing her with exercises she can do at home. She took photos of my daughter doing her stretches and thought through how she could incorporate them into her daily routine, sending us the photos with descriptions to pin up on the walls to remind her. Fantastic! Thank you.
