Leanne made my little boy very at ease on her first visit, to the point where he was actually enjoying the physiotherapy! We also had to re-arrange her second visit and Leanne was very accomodating and offered lots of alternatve dates to suit us.

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.

The visit and service was all positive.
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 was in considerable pain and was struggling to stand up as I couldn't straighten my back. Maria Kanaki came out to my house on two separate occasions. She slowly got me to make a number of moves and exercises as well as massaging my back. This made a tremendous difference. After the first visit I was able to move quite a bit more freely and the pain was significantly reduced. Progress continued with the second visit and I was able to move a lot more and stop taking painkillers. Maria made a massive difference and I am extremely grateful to her. I could not possibly have got to a physio [clinic] and it was a weekend. [Furthermore] it was brilliant to have a physio come to my house within 24 hours of my making contact. The service was excellent and I would not hesitate to contact Physiocomestoyou again if I was suffering from similar back problems again. Thanks from a satisfied customer.
