Our happy clients

  • "So Barry is bloody amazing! Since having my son I’ve really struggled with neck and shoulder pain. As well as being painful and affecting my sleep, it was really impacting my ability to work out and train at pole fitness and just making me feel generally broken. After one session I noticed a massive difference: my pain was reduced and my mobility was massively improved. 2 sessions later I now sleep better, ache less and can train harder and more productively because I’m not all stiff and ouchy. I can’t recommend Barry highly enough, he is thorough, professional, friendly and he’s just really really helped my body feel strong again. Like I said, he’s bloody amazing!"

He is very thorough and professional - taking great care to understand my problems, explore different treatment methods and respond to my feedback. He was practical in his advice and realistic about what could be achieved which put me at ease from the start.
