I would like to say that I was very happy indeed with my physio and with the physiotherapy I received. I have continued with the exercises she provided me with and I am now free of any kind of pain or discomfort. I would be very happy to use this service in the future or to recommend this service to others.

I just wanted to say how pleased we are with Maria. Mum has seen many physios over the last 8 months and believes that Maria is 'better than all the others' to quote her. I thought she was very thorough in her first examination and has since used different techniques to loosen my mother's body which has really helped her. We envisage continuing to use Maria over the next few months as we are so pleased. I just thought it was useful for you to have this feedback and thanks for all your help.
