I have found Farah to be absolutely brilliant. She’s helped me to recover mobility and movement after an accident. Her advice is sound and easy to understand. She goes above and beyond with her attention and care. I would not hesitate to recommend her to my family and friends (and have done!)
I had been to several physios before with a problem with my arm, no one seemed to be able to help. Farah was extremely welcoming and within a few sessions had my arm feeling 100 times better. I could not recommend Farah enough, and will definitely being going back to see her with any issues I may have in the future.
I've been struggling with shoulder issues for many years now, and after two sessions with Farah, it's a thing of the past! The facility is light and airy, Farah keeps it very clean and has been particularly vigilant during the pandemic.
She offers a high quality and professional service - both in and out of the clinic. The working from home booklet she put together is an incredibly comprehensive resource that has really helped me ensure I don't encounter further issues during this period.
Every time I leave I feel like a new woman! I highly recommend Farah, and can't thank her enough for all she's done.
I was referred to Farah after the onset of severe sciatica. Before any treatment took place she took time to understand not only how the symptoms started but also my history and little bit about my day to day lifestyle. Throughout the treatments I find Farah’s manner very professional as she explains what she is doing and why, whilst still being able to make me laugh (sometimes in spite of the pain!!) I have already recommended Farah and will continue to do so as she has helped my rehabilitation tremendously.
Farah is a very professional, knowledgeable and personable physiotherapist. She has a warm & friendly persona; and during my sessions I received fantastic treatment and sound advice on how to treat injuries moving forward. I highly recommend Farah.
I have been seeing Farah for a few months now for some problems with my back and shoulders that I've had since having children. I honestly can't recommend her enough, she's friendly, professional and puts you at ease straight away. I get so much more from my sessions than I expected and I really wish I'd done it sooner!
