I have had sports massages with Paola for long-standing postural and sports-related back issues. She is incredibly strong and knowledgeable and uses a variety of techniques to get to the root of the problem. I noticed a genuine difference in my range of movement within days of first seeing her, for which I am very grateful.
I could not rate physio4life with less than 5 stars. I saw Paola for a sports massage. I was suffering with a lot of pain in my neck and shoulders due to my office based job. I could never imagine how strong she was, but this definitely benefited as my pain was gone a few days after. I have had physio there in the past and I can tell that all the staff is very knowledgeable and would certainly come back!!
I had a great massage from Paola today. My tennis elbow was killing me but the treatment I received from her was amazing. Thank you, Paola
