Our Clients Say

For over 4 years I suffered debilitating pain and problems walking because my knees were affected by osteoarthritis. Earlier this year, I was recovering from a second total knee replacement operation, when sudden severe back pain prevented me standing up.

A nurse recommended physiotherapy so I contacted Physio & Therapies, resulting in a home visit from Lynne Midwinter. After she manipulated my pelvis, prodded some muscles (this is definitely the non-scientific version) and generally straightened me out, I immediately felt relief from the pain.

A couple more sessions at the practice have ensured I can now walk without pain, and am following an exercise regime which was clearly explained and demonstrated. It is no exaggeration to say I feel a new woman, gaining confidence that I will be able to walk normally again. I’m looking forward to walking up to those moors that I’ve missed for 4 years.

Testimonial

Thank you for cleaning the wax from my ears today. You were very competent and obviously highly skilled. It’s difficult to believe you are still in training as it seemed you were already an experienced practitioner. I would certainly recommend your services to family and friends. Brilliant job! – Zsazsa Angliaban

Darren Jones

Earwax removal Specialist

Mr.Jones checked my ears and performed a very professional job. He recorded what was inside my ear and showed me on screen. Significant amounts of wax were removed carefully and effectively with the use of a vacuum suction unit. It was relatively pain free and I was made to feel at ease. A good job was done. I would strongly recommend Darren and his technology! – Terry Marns

Darren Jones

Just had my first experience of ear suction thanks to Darren Jones. All my earwax removal has been through my practice nurse using the  warm water jet. Darren was professional and explained the whole process from start to finish. I was shown my internal ear before and after the process. There was a small amount of discomfort due to the process but not painful. I would highly recommend Darren if you suffer with a build up of ear wax. – Mark Keating.

Darren Jones

For years I’ve been suffering with hearing problems and pain due to a blocked right ear. I have been following recommendations from doctors and faithfully using warm olive oil but it was obviously much too big a problem for that. Darren’s Microsuction treatment was perfect – in less than half an hour he was able to remove the bulk of the impacted wax and in addition he was able to show me pictures of the blocked area. No wonder the olive oil made no impact! It was solid! Now I can hear again and no longer have a continual earache. Thank you so much. – Weston Hammond

Darren Jones

I had knee surgery which was successful. The implant was correctly placed and I should have recovered without problems. I did not. I had severe pain and I could not walk without crutches for months. I was seeing the hospital Physiotherapist regularly and she did not see any problems.

I saw my surgeon and he thought I was fine and told me to come back in a year. I continued to have a bent knee and it was impossible for me to do any normal activities. I just could not walk at all. I could not get into the shower. I could not even make a cup of tea! I was in constant pain and thoroughly depressed.

I saw Kerensa at Physio & Therapies. She worked very hard and did manage to get some movement during the sessions, but by the next day it  returned to a bent position.

She expressed concern that things were not as they should be, I asked to see my surgeon and was told I would have to wait 6 weeks. (This was private medical care, not our overworked NHS)

In despair I went to another surgeon for a second opinion. He immediately agreed with Kerensa and diagnosed that I had an adhesion. He said that my leg was completely stuck and deformed and I would never be able to walk with it like that. He performed a manipulation under anaesthetic. Instantly I could put weight on that leg and I could attempt to walk. (On crutches) The pain I had endured for months diminished

Months of attempting to walk on a bent knee had taken their toll and I then needed intensive Physiotherapy to get the leg to remain straight. Kerensa worked very hard to achieve this and . gradually we got there.

I assumed that once this was done I would become normal but 7 months of walking bent on crutches had had an effect.. Kerensa had to teach me to balance again and retrain my muscles all over my body to work effectively. It has been a long slow process. A year after surgery I have an almost normal life.

The whole thing has been a nightmare. The physical effects and the pain was dreadful but there were psychological side effects too, suddenly becoming disabled and imprisoned in my own home was terrifying. Throughout all this Kerensa has supported me and given me confidence by constantly telling me that I would get well. I am extremely grateful.

Without her support I would have believed my surgeon and the hospital Physiotherapist and I am convinced I would have given up all hope of ever getting back to normal again and would have been in a wheelchair.

Throughout all this the reception staff have noted my progress and constantly offered words of support and encouragement.I would recommend Physio & Therapies to anyone who experiences similar problems.

Lynne Thornton.

Chris Doyle

Sally is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about nutrition. Her [weightmanagement education] course is interesting and supportive and I highly recommend you attend and learn!

Elin Rossiter

Sally provided me with great advice and diet plans for lowering my cholesterol in which we worked together over several months. I got amazing results and was really happy with all the dietary and nutrient advice which enabled me to achieve this. Nothing was too much trouble she was pleasant and very professional throughout all the process making you feel comfortable at all times. I would absolutely recommend her.

Pauline Holt

Great service. Very interesting. We learnt so much in the session – would definitely recommend.

Vanessa Holt

Sally made me feel completely at ease. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone who has nutritional issues. It was a pleasant, educational insight into my own personal circumstances, thank you.”

Marie Gogoley

Sally is warm and welcoming and gave a realistic and educated service, she took the time to listen and I am really happy with her recommendations.

MB

The help I received from Sally exceeded my expectations. The consultation was in-depth and the ensuing health plan was tailored to my specific needs. I would highly recommend Sally to anyone wanting to improve their health through their diet.

Diane Palliser

I started seeing Sally in May knowing my diet needed to change to improve my health. Sally has professionally and sensitively supported the change required to improve my health. There has been complete support and guidance throughout and non-judgemental suggestions. I can’t thank Sally enough for the improvement in health physically and mentally . She goes above and beyond to help.

Rachel Walker

I have greatly appreciated your warmth, care, commitment and all the time and effort you spent in background research to address my individual symptoms. I believe I have really benefited from the work we did together (I think the balance of my gut flora is now better than it has been for many years) – thank you!

HB

I would highly recommend Sally-Anne and the services she offers. My health has improved significantly since seeing her. She is very professional in every way.

Lorna Laegard

I came to Sally with multiple complex issues. I was looking to fine tune my diet and also for guidance on which supplements may improve my fatigue and digestion. I had realistic expectations about what may be achieved in the short term, however, I am pleased to report that I have seen positive effects rather quickly from some simple changes.The most notable differences for me have been the positive effects of cutting out caffeine on hormonal issues and anxiety, whilst further cutting down on sugar and increasing my intake of leafy greens has improved my overall feeling of wellbeing.

The supplements Sally recommended are also starting to make some inroads with my fatigue and I am hopeful that the same will be true of the ones for my digestion. Sally is so warm and friendly which makes talking openly much easier, allowing you to really get to the crux of an issue. Her contact in between appointments was really appreciated as queries can pop up as you try new things and Sally was there to listen and offer different ways around any issues.

I feel more in control of my conditions now and will be continuing to work with Sally over the longer term in order to maintain the gains I have made as well as to
explore more positive actions I can take for my health.

ADF West Yorkshire

Sally really knows her stuff when it comes to nutrition, she’s also a lovely person and makes you feel comfortable with her very quickly whilst providing her professional support and guidance to the highest standard. She really did help me implement positive changes in my life and I would wholeheartedly recommend Sally and True To Your Health.”
