Grace was lovely - her background was perfect for us and she devised a plan, which was manageable, and exactly the types of exercises to help achieve my son’s goals. She pushed him just to the right level without upsetting him, but making him work at the same time. Exactly what we were looking for!

My physio was very professional and thorough with her diagnosis, treatment and aftercare. Physiocomestoyou was a personal recommendation from a colleague. My initial draw was the fact she worked very flexible hours. I could be seen for my appointment at 7am every week which meant limited time was lost at work. She was quick in identifying a muscular impingement in my left shoulder. A series of sessions helped cure the problem. I was extremely impressed with the service and highly recommend Physiocomestoyou. I am now pain free!!
