I've been coming to Physio4Life for around 9 months now and started with monthly sports massages with Lucy who sorted out my tight quads and shoulders as well as advising me on the best stretches etc. I then came in for a massage with a hideous purple ankle, from yet another sprain/ligament tear (dodgy netball ankles) to which she was horrified and immediately referred me to Roxane, the osteopath, who fortunately was able to see me straight away for a consultation. She manipulated and massaged the damaged tissue and straight away my ankle felt better. I came back the next week and then a couple of weeks later and after around 4 sessions in 6 weeks I was back running again and pain free. This was back in March (6 months ago) and I have been injury free since so am eternally grateful to Roxane for fixing me and for Lucy's continued brutal sports massages that I always feel amazing for afterwards! Highly recommend these two and the practice as a whole.
