Hear what some of our patients think about the clinic and the care they receive!
"I had been suffering with pain in my leg and back for some time and it was affecting my walking and my confidence in my ability to walk anywhere. I booked an appointment with Flourish through the simple online booking system and am so glad I did. At first, I was very nervous about the appointment but I needn't have worried - Julia is friendly, efficient, knowledgeable and really listened to me and answered any questions or concerns I had. I now understand where the pain is coming from, the way it affects me and the steps to recovery. This has given me the confidence to walk more and steadily improve the distance I can complete and I no longer need to take painkillers. Julia has not only helped with my pain but also my general wellbeing. Since starting the treatment my energy levels and overall flexibility have improved and I am now able to enjoy long walks with my family and friends which is very important to me. I cannot thank Julia enough for helping me achieve this and would recommend her to anybody experiencing pain which is impacting on their life."
"I have been seeing Julia for a number of months now and I wish I'd seen her sooner! I had been attending another chiropractor until I moved to Julia's practice and the two just don't compare. Julia genuinely wants to know how you've been in between visits, she listens to your feedback, delves deeper to get to root causes and explains what's going on."
"Nothing is too much trouble. I wanted to progress to ‘normality' again- a pain free back. I hadn't ran in over a year but with Julia's care, I laced up the trainers again and went on my first run! That's progress. Can't recommend her enough!"
"I first came across Julia when I found one of her TED talks and I found it most reassuring, so during lockdown I contacted Julia and set up a zoom consultation as I was still struggling with pain and getting quite anxious about it. Julia listened to my concerns and anxieties, then she talked through about how long term pain can be triggered and re-enforced by our thought patterns, and that pain doesn't always mean there's an injury , and was able to give me techniques on how to deal with this, so I was able to get back to doing my much loved cycling. I would recommend Julia in a heartbeat she's very knowledgable and easy to talk to and I always feel much more calm , and stronger and reassured once I've spoken to her."
"I went to Julia for help with, what I perceived to be, constant lower back pain that I could not shake. It was affecting many of my day-to-day activities and made me fearful of doing certain things. Julia was warm, friendly and professional. She listened carefully to what I thought the problems were and then explained all the way through the examination and follow-up treatment exactly what she was doing and was always happy to explain, in a way I could understand, what the problems were. After a few sessions with her, my back pain had reduced significantly and since then I have been able to live without any of the pain I had previously experienced. I am not afraid to use my back to do things that previously I might have avoided for fear of hurting it, not only because it is much better but also, because I now understand what was going on in my back. Julia, also gave me plenty of follow up exercises which I can employ and use to help keep my back in good condition. I would thoroughly recommend her services."
