"Extremely Knowledgable & Supportive"
"After just a few treatments and Sophie’s knowledge of my condition, with her suggesting appropriate exercises has left me pain free and able to return to normal everyday activities"
"I had been suffering from tennis elbow for a number of months and had various treatments before I had a consultation with Sophie. She decided that the best course of action would be to try acupuncture alongside manual therapy, which I had never had before and I felt anxious. I needn’t have been, Sophie explained what she was doing and put me at ease, and my elbow is now pain free."
"I am so grateful to Sophie for helping me get back to feeling human again.
I went to see her not terribly hopeful as an injury I sustained while running had left long term pain. But Sophie tried things that other physios hadn’t and with her support and encouragement I now feel like I am on the road to recovery. Thank you Sophie."
