“Thanks Claire for the programme to help relieve my groin and back pain that had been giving me chronic pain for over a year. I didn’t need an operation in the end!“

I was really pleased to be able to help Tony, an otherwise very active guy. Unfortunately, the professionals he saw were unable to remedy his problem. I was able to identify that he was suffering from a hip flexor strain and secondary problems that had developed over the 12-months of deconditioning.

With a simple, progressive programme of exercise I was delighted to see his hip pain had completely gone after only 7 weeks. He’s now extended his goals from walking without pain, to getting back into bodybuilding training.
