My experience with Physiocomestoyou has been a very good one. Problems were always patiently and sensitively treated, and the physio was sensitive to my limitations. Appointments were always punctual and never cancelled. I would certainly recommend physiocomestoyou.

I found Maria personable, highly professional and knowledgeable. Also I like the manner in which she worked on my shoulder and back. I came to Physiocomestoyou having been unhappy with a previous physio who when things were not good, started talking of neurosurgeons, MRI scans and other interventions. I thought that Maria’s approach of me doing the exercises to strengthen my back and shoulder more appropriate and helpful than the previous physio’s approach of my being manipulated but not actually doing anything for myself. So thank you, she’s great!
