"I chose to have some treatment during my recovery from a broken ankle. Manny treated the area itself and other areas in the foot and leg which had been affected by the injury. From the first session the pain and discomfort eased significantly and there was increased flexibility in my whole foot. I am really pleased with how this therapy has helped with my recovery.

I would recommend Manny to others - he is professional, knowledgeable and explained everything in simple terms which I found really reassuring."

"I have been receiving lower back and foot therapy sessions from Emmanuel over the last few months. I feel that he has been excellent at diagnosing my underlying problems which were causing both my lower back and feet pain.

He was very thorough in taking my history and monitoring my improvement across the sessions. After the 3 sessions with Emmanuel, my lower back pain is completely gone and the pain in my feet has significantly reduced. I would strongly recommend his therapy services."

"My problem was lower back pain. It's intensity varied from day to day but sometimes it felt as if I could not support my own weight and had to use a walking stick to get about. Pain killers made it manageable but I didn't want to spend the rest of my life having to rely on them so I spoke with Emmanuel to see if he could help. After examining me he explained my problem and how it could be improved. After a few treatment sessions I felt so much better, the pains gone and I can walk without any ill effects. I am very pleased with the whole process. Emmanuel made time to listen to my problem and made me feel confident in his ability to help me which turned out to be better than I could ever have hoped for. Thank you Emmanuel.

After seeing my GP about recurring headaches and having numerous blood tests, CT & MRI scans the cause has remained a mystery so I was referred to the headache pain clinic. They provided a pain control programme which on the whole keeps them under control. However last week I was struck down with severe head pain and remembering the success Emmanuel had with my back pain, I contacted him and discussed this problem. He found some issues with my neck muscles and began to treat them. This is an on-going issue but so far the pain has not returned.

"I had been suffering from restrictive neck and shoulder pain which at the end of each week using 2 screens at work would result in a severe headache. I decided enough was enough. Manny worked on all of these areas, a very intensive and thorough treatment. I have to say that the results were remarkable. The difference in my movement and it was the fact that I had no pain and I haven't had a headache like that since. I do pilates and yoga and it was weird not having to work through the pain when doing the yoga child's pose and also in pilates when working on my shoulder area, it actually threw me a little because you get so used to managing with the pain, I felt euphoric, yes at last, something that works. Thank you Manny."
