Caroline (therapist) was fantastic, and for the first time it felt like someone was actually listening to me. It was great to actually have some positive feedback and advice as opposed to "carry on as you are". We have taken on board everything in the report and fingers crossed we can help Emily. Many thanks.Mother of a private client aged 8

Your therapist explained clearly what was happening with my tendons and muscles in a way that helped me understand could be achieved with exercises and manipulation. Also her advice on equipment that could help and instruction on its use was invaluable.Mrs Smith, private hand therapy client
