Natural Health Physiotherapy (Bristol)

74 Shirehampton Rd, Bristol BS9 2DR, UK – 0117 968 6135

Brian at Natural Health is not only an extremely knowledgeable physio but also a great guy. I went to him 10 weeks out from a running endurance event, and with numerous niggles and injuries we found a way to overcome them all by the time the event came around and he was a major factor to how the event ended up. Brian listens to the patient and, genuinely was interested and concerned about how my preparation was going. We also took the opportunity to discuss tactics and approaches which was also extremely useful. All in all, a great experience from start to finish and would recommend him to all.

I injured my lower back while training and after weeks of lower back pain I was recommended to see Brian at Natural Health Physiotherapy. Brian listen to what I had done and explained to me fully how I had injured myself and more importantly how not to repeat what I had done to cause the problem. Brian was able to see me out of work hours where I had three treatments in total. I followed all of his advice and exercises get my back strengthened and can happily say i'm on my feet again training for a triathlon with no back pain. I would highly recommend going to Natural Health Physiotherapy for any problems, Brian was very knowledgeable and helped me so much. So happy I can go out on my bike again.

Alex Turner Acupuncture @ Bristol Osteopaths

Sneyd Park Osteopaths, 4 Rockleaze Rd, Bristol BS9 1NF, UK – 0117 968 5107

Alex's Turner's shiatsu's are 'en pointe'. Maybe because he's an acupuncturist as well, his treatments are clear, focussed and precise at the same time as giving me the feeling I'm being taken care of. He knows exactly what needs work and I always leave feeling nourished and restored. You know you are in safe hands with Alex.

Alex is a highly qualified and experienced practitioner and tutor. His skills in Shiatsu, Acupuncture and Qigong mean that he has a wide range of tools at his disposal to aid your recovery. Speaking as a former colleague, I would highly recommend him.

Sophie Osteopath

78 Shirehampton Rd, Bristol BS9 2DR, UK – 0117 900 0935

A massive thanks to Sophie for yet another brilliant treatment. As a runner, I have lots of 'niggly' problems for which I go to see Sophie. Each time, she efficiently and skillfully gets to the route of the problem straight away, and fixes it! Before I went to see Sophie about my various pains, I was quite nervous, and worried that the advice would be to stop running. Far from it! Sophie was quick to put me at ease, and offered me much welcomed advice on how to carry-on running despite these issues. I no longer 'ignore' my running-related pains, I just got to see Sophie straight away. I cannot recommend this lady enough! Again thanks Sophie and see you, no doubt, in a few months (after another big race!)

Sophie really helped me with lower back pain , the treatment and advice she gave was excellent! Thanks so much!

Birthing Essence - Holistic Massage sessions and workshops with Jenny Hampton

Collistear Beauty, 137a Shirehampton Road, Bristol BS9 2EA, UK – 07790 330531

I've found Jenny to be a highly skilled, supportive and professional massage therapist. i'd been suffering with acute pain in my shoulder and back, nothing had relieved it and was close to going to the Doctors. I went to Jenny hoping for some relief from the pain and just to relax a bit. Instead I had an incredible session that meant I had my first full night sleep without pain in weeks. Since then it feels that my body is really changing and letting go of stress that had led to the injury. I see Jenny twice a week currently, as the injury has flared up and settled, Jenny has consistently been able to meet what I've needed. Anything from deep, redial massage to work with specific muscle groups, to gentle holding as pain as left my body and I've needed more gentle tlc. I highly recommend her.
