What do our customers say?
We have many new and returning customers that love the service we provide.

Thanks to the most fantastic physio (James) for his ongoing support during one lengthly recovery, I've regained so much confidence, body awareness and physical strength. From July he's been so patient and only a phone call away if I'm ever in need. I would thoroughly recommend to any dancers, athletes and sports players. This guy knows his stuff and I can completely trust I'm in very safe hands.

Pip Kyle Dancer, Newcastle

As a professional dancer Kevin understands my (unique) problems and works miracles in order to keep me dancing and at my peak, going above and beyond. I work in London but still travel back home for treatment. Highly recommended!!!

Laura Ann Williams Professional Dance. London

I developed hip, knee and back pain after taking up long distance running. It got to the point where I was unable to do any running at all and I was very frustrated. I contacted Kevin and was able to be reviewed very quickly. He took a very thorough history of my symptoms and also performed a very detailed examination. Kevin has a broad range of experience and I was really pleased that he identified the problem almost immediately. After one session, I already noted a marked improvement and I was able to go back to regular running not long afterwards. Kevin was extremely professional and compassionate throughout my treatment. I would not hesitate in recommending him.

Dr S Chattree Gosforth, Newcastle

I had very painful calves and Achilles tendonitis from running and high intensity training that were so painful they hurt when I walked upstairs. A friend recommended Kevin who saw me, assessed me, diagnosed me and started treating me immediately. He initially dry-needled me; although it was not nice at the time, after three session I had no pain going up stairs any more. Two further sessions of hands-on therapy and an exercise programme and I was back to my best (actually better!). Top man who knows his game.

Better by 5

Over 90% of our patients get ‘Better by 5’ sessions.

If you need any of our physiotherapy, sports injury, sports massage or acupuncture services, you should see and feel a real difference by the end of your fifth session.

If, on the other hand, there is no improvement in your clinical condition or in the way you feel – we STOP after the fifth session. At that point, we reassess the reasons why there has been no apparent improvement and, if necessary, we can organise scans and letters to GP's and Consultants. You can be sure that we will never continue treating you unless there is a positive benefit – and only when you (and we) agree on your treatment plan.
