What Our Clients Say
I have been experiencing RSI for almost a year now, and it has been seriously taking its toll on my professional and social life. After trying several therapists with no visible results, I started getting treatment with Amanda and I have to say how very impressed I am. Not only is the pain decreasing and my condition getting better but I am suprised at how really professional Amanda is. Her comprehension of RSI and its pathology is truly remarkable.
I have done weekly massage therapy, twice weekly chiropractic, yoga and Pilates which all helped [my sciatica] some, but nothing has worked as well as Myofascial Release. After doing the exercises which reduce pain I can also feel a difference in my posture which I believe is at the core of the issue. This technique is working better for me than anything else I have tried.
Coming to see Amanda was a safe haven that truly transformed my experience as it was healing in every way. Her magical touch, experience, compassion, and pure energy is a unique combination that’s hard to come by. I have been very fortunate to have her help and will forever be grateful for all that she has done for me.
I cannot praise Amanda enough. I went to her with a very painful frozen shoulder. Over a few sessions she was able to relieve the pain and gradually restore the range of motion. Having struggled to find any therapy which worked I firmly believe she should be the first port of call for anyone with this condition.
Within a few sessions with Amanda and a few weeks using her individualised suggestions, my pain became so much more manageable that I was able to start exercising regularly again for the first time in years. Amanda is clearly excellent in her field and has significantly changed my quality of life. I strongly recommend myofascial release therapy, especially for those suffering from fibromyalgia.
Amanda has proven that I can depend on her – a recent skiing whiplash injury saw me walk into Amanda’s clinic unable to hold my head up, and walk out an hour later, pain-free, with my head held high. Amanda is professional, knowledgeable and always willing to take time to explain what has happened, how she can help, and how I can help myself.
I strongly recommend seeing Amanda. Incredibly skilled practitioner, knowledgable, kind and compassionate – she has not only helped in directly relieving pain, but also in explaining what is happening and suggesting ways forward. Most importantly, she has helped to alleviate the distress that ‘it will always be like this’. If your pain is neuro-muscular like mine, I cannot recommend her enough.
When I first consulted Amanda I was suffering from RSI that was preventing me from doing my job as a writer. My right wrist, arm, shoulder and back had seized up and I was unable to type. The pain had not been alleviated by several months of physio, wearing a wrist brace, applying ice packs and taking large quantities of prescribed Ibuprofen. My first session with Amanda brought instant relief and reduction of pain; over 6 subsequent sessions I experienced complete elimination of the problem.
I cannot praise or recommend Amanda or this treatment technique enough. I had tried everything for my chronic pain condition (Fibromyalgia) but they barely made a dent in my physical chronic pain. Myofascial release has changed my life. For the first time I've felt a complete release of my chronic pain and was able to function pain free. These sessions continue to improve my life beyond words. Amanda is so knowledgable about the body and helpful. She's helped me learn about my body and improve my relationship with it.
