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.

After only one session I could feel the benefits and after a course of treatment I can honestly say that the sessions have changed my life. I come for occasional maintenance sessions now and Amanda has taught me many coping techniques so that I can continue with the benefits of her treatment at home. I am sincerely grateful and would highly recommend her practice!

I went to see Amanda for myofascial release having suffered for many years from muscular aches and pains which I had been told by doctors was fibromyalgia. Since seeing Amanda I have felt strong and fit and have been able to keep up a fitness regime that includes running, cycling and yoga. I would highly recommend her to anyone suffering the same kind of problems as myself.
When I first came to Amanda’s clinic in November 2009, I’d had four years of frozen shoulders – first the right and then the left. I was living a restricted life. I couldn’t reach up or dress myself with any dignity and even putting on a coat would have me whimpering with pain. Amanda’s reassuring and professional manner gave me the confidence and courage to have the treatment. I noticed a massive improvement within 24 hours and thereafter improved with a speed I’d never thought possible.

Being a drummer I have to use my body to its limit on and off stage. I started losing feeling in my left side (both back and arm) last year. After receiving treatment from various doctors and physios with unsuccessful outcomes I tried Amanda. Since I started a program with her she has re-aligned my body and I am on the way to playing and enjoying what I do. My body feels stronger and my movement has got better. I really recommend it to anyone in the same position as I was last year.
Paul Garred (Drummer – The Kooks), London
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 can honestly say Amanda is responsible for my recovery and I advise anyone who suffers from RSI as well to get treatment with her. You won’t be in better hands.
Thank you for everything.

Just a quick note to say how grateful I am for the work you did on me before I left the UK. I deeply appreciated your quiet and unassuming wisdom. I also want to thank you for the total feeling of confidence and safety I experienced throughout all sessions. I just needed to send my appreciation across twelve thousand miles.

Having had aches and pains across the top of my shoulders for approximately six months, I started having treatment with Amanda. Following a series of six weekly appointments I am delighted to say that these have now all disappeared. I found Amanda to be caring in the way she approached my treatment, and her communication in explaining the processes to be of an extremely professional nature. In addition to the medical benefits I have also found that her treatments to be very relaxing and extremely good value. I am sure any new clients will find her pleasant to deal with and very effective in dealing with any aches and pains.

“I had been searching for pain relief for chronic right-sided pain in and around my jaw and Amanda was the first person to give me a comprehensive understanding of exactly what was going on physiologically – this in itself was a huge relief after years of getting no definitive answers from doctors and medical specialists. My first visit brought me instant relief and was followed by 3 weeks with absolutely no pain. Pain may well have no memory, but as the first sustained and meaningful pain relief I had experienced in many long months, I remember it well! I have continued to go from strength to strength and now use myofascial release to help sustain a pain-free existence
Amanda’s practical approach, in depth knowledge and her passion for the subject is reflected in her talent as a practitioner who has great physical strength and intuition, coupled with an impressive anatomical knowledge which she has always been happy to share with me.
Amanda has been an immense help on my journey away from pain and I now have clarity and energy that I haven’t felt in years.
I can’t believe that I had never heard of myofascial release in all my years of pain and believe strongly that it should be medically recognised. I can’t recommend it highly enough.”
Alison C, actor & trainer
Amanda has helped me enormously – she is skilled, knowledgeable and firm. I was born with talipes (club feet), and had lots of surgery as a child, I was pain free for most of my childhood, but as an adult I have had chronic foot, calf and knee pain. Since seeing Amanda my pain has been far less than at any time in the last 20 years, and I have lots more flexibility in my ankles. Thanks Amanda.
