WHAT PEOPLE THINK OF US

I'm currently seeing a lady here & she has been phenomenal and very knowledgeable of my injury. She shows compassion and empathy but also very honest. The reception staff are lovely and easy to deal with.
Would highly recommend these guys, very friendly and professional.
Professional, understanding, caring and precise on assisting me to recover after breaking my arm and wrist. Well done team. :)
Very experienced and explains why and what they are going to do to you
I have very complex physical medical conditions and saw Alanah today. She was positive, supportive, listened extremely well and responded perfectly to the severe pain I was in. Her massage skills and interest in what worked best for me were second to none. Well worth the time and money and I can't wait to work with her again. Thank you Alanah....I haven't needed to take the strong pain relief this evening I have had to take usually :)
