STUDENT FEEDBACK

“I had seen a number of physios and experts from around the world, but none had really been able to help. After a few sessions with Rachel, my back pain started to decrease and I eventually gave up taking pain killers and was able to walk without pain. I do not believe it would have been possible for anyone to help me the way Rachel did. I would strongly recommend Rachel to anyone who is suffering any kind of pain or who just wants to be more flexible. Rachel is very knowledgeable and an expert in her field.” Duncan Bannatyne OBE
