I initially sought treatment for my jaw which had “clunked” for many years. The experience of having massage done on the inside of the mouth was very unusual, but the result was a re-aligned jaw which is now pain free and rarely clunks.
With such good results I decided to continue treatment for what had been diagnosed as Fibromyalgia and symptoms of OOS (occupational overuse) in my arms. Treatment targeted soft tissue problems but also postural ones.
Through a combination of massage, postural changes and stretches pain has reduced to the point where strengthening exercises are now possible. One of the best spin offs so far is that I can now comfortably lie on either shoulder which has significantly improved my quality of sleep.
Claire has been a fantastic help for my back.
A few month’s ago I was in a lot of pain and can now play with the kids, have a better sleep and walk without pain.
I would have no hesitation to recommend Claire to anyone with back pain.
Serendipity means happy accident, it was a happy accident to meet and be treated by Claire. I had due to an accident as a teenager limited movement in both hips and long term pain in my thigh muscle.
In the middle of 2006 the pain in my leg had gone from Bad to worse treatment in the past had not helped much.
I looked in the yellow pages and found by Serendipity Claire.
I can honestly say she has increased movement in both hips by a healthy amount and reduced the pain level in my thigh muscle by 95%,please note this problem had been with me for 35 years.
Thank you Claire and I recommend you to anyone who is in need of treatment.
I was referred to Claire by a family member who felt Claire might be able to help relieve my chronic back pain. I had previously had surgery to fuse my L5/S1 discs, the suregery was sucessfrul but I was left with back pain that could be triggered by the simplest tasks. After numerous visists tho physio, osteopaths, manipulation and personal gym training I was no better off.
From the very fist session there was relief to my level of pain. Over the next 2 months I made rapid improvement to the extent that I was allowed to lift anything I wanted and get back to a normal lifestyle. I was a bit hesitant to start something else after the failures of pervious therapies but now 6 months later I would not hesitate in recommending Claire to anyone with a similar problem.
My family and I have all had treatments from Claire over a number of years. I have always found her to be caring and concerned, always showing a high standard of professionalism. Claire will always listen to what I am saying and work to find a resolution. I have had particular success after seeing Claire for long term lower back pain & Migraines caused by Neck problems. I have had great results from both complaints particularly if I maintain the exercise guidelines she has set me. I also saw Claire after a compound fracture to my ankle a couple of years ago, requiring 2 attempts at bone grafts. I truly believe my ankle would not be so functional today without the intensive treatment Claire gave me. With an active family of 5, Claire is our first port of call when requiring treatment, we receive a high standard of treatment that will see us back doing what we love!
I came to Claire after more than 5 years of severe muscle and joint pain. During this period I had treatments from various practitioners – physiotherapy, chiropractic, osteopathic, therapeutic & sports massage therapists. They all offered temporary relief but the root of the problem was still at large. Claire’s unique treatment made major in-roads into remedying my problem within the first couple of treatments, and continued to achieve results with subsequent visits.
