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.

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.

Tori was lovely and very friendly, I am pleased we have some exercises to be getting on with [my son] and start getting the ball rolling so to speak.
I was really pleased with the session that we had with Grace. It was the first time that anyone has thoroughly examined my child and tailor made specific exercises. I cannot express how thankful I am to Grace, and that is just in the first session. I am hoping that with the exercises she has left we will see a significant improvement in my daughter's leg strength, and hopefully her ability to walk independently at some point in the future.
