I have had two sessions for a very stiff and painful neck with James. He was able to talk me through my symptoms and pain and then gave me a treatment that has helped immensely. The follow on exercises seem to be helping as well.Lisa, Sep 25
James was extremely professional and polite in his appointment with me. He took his time and had some fantastic recommendations to help me meet my personal goals. I would undoubtedly recommend his service to anyone who has never seen a PT before or to anyone that is more familiar! He’s great!JD, Oct 08
