"Thank you again for your very efficient treatment and professionalism. I have been very satisfied with your treatment, and now feel well. Again many thanks"
I recently visited Jenny with a couple of nasty back problems, and came away after three sessions with her a new man. She quickly identified my problems were based mainly on the poor postural habits that I had
slipped into, particularly while at my desk. After some well-targeted manipulation, by practicing the simple but very effective exercises that she suggested to me, and after applying her suggestions about my bad posture, my pain disappeared very quickly. I cannot recommend her too highly, and I will certainly return to her without hesitation if I slip back into my bad ways.
I spend long periods of time at a computer and because of this and the stress of meeting tight deadlines, I experienced a lot of pain in my neck, shoulder and arm. I had little movement in my neck and was having difficulty turning my head. I was experiencing discomfort at night while sleeping. However, after only a few sessions with Jenny, things got sorted through massage and manipulation.
She gave me a series of exercises to do, which I still do, and recommended a pilates class. I haven't had any trouble since. I think anyone who spends a long period of time in front of a computer should see an osteopath regularly to ensure they are not doing any lasting damage due to stress and poor posture.
