Debbie, m
any thanks for the most efficient and effective treatment for my chronic and quite severe foot injury.  Despite consulting my GP and having an X-ray which showed nothing was broken, the pain was getting worse and I became very depressed because I could not walk for more than about 5 minutes without extreme pain.  I was becoming housebound and could not even walk around the supermarket.  I was given your name by a friend, and you have, in three sessions, sorted my problem.  I cannot express the relief I have now. I am almost back to full recovery and recently enjoyed a full day out and about walking in Glasgow. Thank you very much.  A J Butler

"I have suffered from headaches most of my life especially at times of stress. Recently I have been undergoing chemotherapy treatment and my headache problem was really impacting on my ability to cope with everyday life. I was experiencing a lot of muscle tension in my neck, head and face and medication wasn't really impacting on it much at all. I consulted Debbie and through the use of acupuncture and manipulation she was able to improve my symptoms dramatically over 6 sessions in 3 weeks. I return to her every few weeks for a "top up" if I feel that I need it. I also think that the acupuncture treatment has helped my energy levels overall during the chemotherapy. I hope other people in similar situations are also able to benefit from such treatment." Carolyn Urquhart

"It's a fantastic service. Especially for people who really need it like me. To have someone of this clinic's standard in Glasgow is such a great attribute for the city of Glasgow".  David O'Hara

"I would highly recommend Debbie to anyone looking for a physiotherapist!  She is very easy to talk to and makes you feel very much at ease, yet is very professional at the same time.  I had been suffering from lower back and pelvic pain for almost five years.  I had tried physio in the past, along with seeing a chiropractor once a week for over a year and I had also tried acupuncture but nothing was making a long term difference, until I contacted Debbie.  I have only had two sessions with her as that is all I have needed.  She gave me plenty of advice and explained the stretches I should be doing regularly.  This is the best my back has been in years. Thanks Debbie!" Mhairi Woods

"Debbie was a wonderful help, I have recommended her to people, all were very satisfied.
I have no hesitation in recommending Debbie." Geoffrey Freedland

I thoroughly recommend you go and see Debbie for treatment. I only needed to attend two visits and she 'fixed me'. I had arranged to go to a chiropractor who advised me I should pay a block booking for 10 visits which would have resulted in £300 to £400. However, when I spoke to Debbie on the phone, she advised me that I would really only need two or three visits. So, I cancelled the chiropractor and went to see Debbie and I have to say she alleviated the pain I had after the first visit and gave me great lifestyle advice too. She made me feel very relaxed and gave me exercises to do and advice about how I should be sitting at my desk in the office. I have made some adjustments at my desk and already I can feel the difference. I would not hesitate in recommending Debbie if you have any problems.  Please go and see her as it is well worth the visit.  You will not be disappointed. She is a miracle worker
