I had a bad back and really sore knotted shoulders from work. Had tried ‘massages’ a few times before but they didn’t really help. Went to Bodycare Sports for a ‘Sport massage’ and it worked wonders.. my shoulders are no longer tight and knotted! Highly recommended!!

After having a severe back spasm a friend suggested a massage. Having had a basic massage before the Dolphin music and smelly candles was not really for me. So I decided to try sports massage therapy. Not being an Athlete I was not sure if it was appropriate. I have to say it was the best thing I ever did. I found Gemma to be very professional and explained the process and diagnoses clearly. The therapy has enabled me to move and bend more freely and the exercise program given is helping my recovery. I highly recommend this treatment and have now booked a full course.’ – Mrs Roberts

Michael Davis was the only professional to correctly identify the real reason for my appalling back pain. I had been round the houses from one specialist to another and I had even been referred to a famous hospital in Oxford who diagnosed weak back muscles and suggested aerobic classes might be the answer. As it turned out, I had a prolapsed disc which was successfully deal with by minor surgery. Thank you Michael Davis.

He is a highly respected Osteopath and one of the most professional therapists you could meet. I have no hesitation in recommending him and Natalie for consultation and treatment for your Musculoskeletal complaints.
