Say About Us!
Absolutely amazing! Over the years I've put my body through a lot of stress with training and Northern Myotherapy has been my saving grace on many occasions. Michael's knowledge of the body is profound and his ability to assess, diagnose and treat is truly astounding. I've been to chiropractors, physiotherapists, osteopaths etc. with less than satisfactory outcomes but my experiences at Northern Myotherapy have been 100% positive. An excellent mix of Western and Eastern treatment. A big thumbs up to Michael and the team of experts! 👍
Shanee is amazing. Has totally fixed my knee and back pain that I was thinking would just go away the last month.... thank you!
This practise is tops, that from a life-long patient who knows good, bad and highly indifferent medical care. My 'myo' Alex provides genuine relief and comfort from major road trauma injuries. Your booking will be a true investment in body care.
Julien was fantastic, he really put me at ease and gave me a great, targeted treatment with aftercare advice and encouragement. His knowledge was great and techniques used were efficient and effective. I will definitely be returning!
