A FEW OF OUR TRUSTED REVIEWS
Kind words from our Patients
I had tried almost every mode of therapy, including resorting to not running, but nothing had worked. In the very first consultation Janelle identified the causes of my problems, and over a series of regular appointments she supervised the strengthening of weak areas using specific strengthening exercises. Within a month both my Achilles and knee issues were sorted, and I was at last able to enjoy pain-free running again – such a relief! Since then I made the decision to see Janelle weekly on a “prevention is better than cure” basis, and as a result I’ve not experienced an injury since.
What sets Janelle apart is the depth of her empathy combined with the extent of her knowledge. She is gentle, firm, compassionate and follows a scientific approach with her programme, which she tailors very effectively to the individual. Each session is both physically and psychologically beneficial – her sense of humour and lightness of touch also make me look forward to seeing her!
Under Janelle’s care my strength has improved, and due to her on-going input, I can live pain-free for the first time in about 20 years. I will always be grateful to Janelle; she is one of a kind!
I have been gifted a new lease of life. Feeling stronger physically and emotionally. I have never been more confident and happier as I go about my daily life with an improved ease of motion. Biokinetics has given me the tools and taught me how to engage my nervous system and brain, to help relax muscles, ease pain, improve posture and movement! It can be very challenging, but has been such a positive experience which has been fun and exciting, but mostly like a special magic is engaging inside me to live life to the fullest.
Janelle changed my life. Having a complicated medical background, meant that I needed to be treated very much as an unique individual. Janelle was so supportive and happy to think out of the box for my treatment. Her attention to detail, consideration to my abilities and understanding my limitations made me feel comfortable and cared for, while still making consistent progress with positive outcomes. I can’t recommend Janelle more if you are looking for a highly knowledgeable, caring, individual and progressive care.
