I have been transformed in the last couple of months by the wonderful work that Emer the physiotherapist has done on my feet, knees and ankle. She has been able to get me moving again and me the right exercises to help when I am feeling stiff. Also I am feeling my hands and toes again after the effects of chemo. Thankyou so much.
Emmett therapy definitely loosened my shoulders and gave me better movement to lift my children. Everyday tasks are a bit easier as well.
The Auricular acupuncture was great. I can’t believe I could achieve this level of relaxation. I can’t take it in
