After 6 months of carrying an injury which has been treated by two Physio's, Annette almost immediately found what the problem was!!!! Cannot recommend this lady enough!!! Fantastic experience and extremely grateful to Annette for finally finding the site of the injury.
My massage for my fibromyalgia was amazing!! OMG what a sleep just under 7 hours straight. I cannot remember the last time I slept that long. My back and shoulders feel amazingly loose and mobile. Thanks for working your magic. Morag x
This girl knows her stuff and gets right to the root of the problem! Friendly yet totally professional - amazing treatment with a great giggle or two thrown in!! Techniques the best I've experienced and everything so well explained. Sleep was so much better and body felt so much lighter and more flexible the next morning. Looking forward to my next treatment to continue the path of banishing my niggles and stresses!
After suffering for years from back pain a few sessions with Annette has been incredibly freeing and I've known months of good back health. Very professional and knows what she's doing!
Definitely helped my post running muscles. Very helpful and informative on the the various muscle anatomy to give me a greater understanding the cause and effect it has. Definitely thumbs up to Annette.
