“After suffering from debilitating back and leg pain for 3 years and with no clear diagnosis. I was left demoralised and often questioned if my quality of life would ever improve. I then met Jane who dramatically changed my whole well being, I had forgotten what it was like to remain pain free! I’ll never forget the relief I felt after only my first massage treatment. Jane has helped me regain my confidence and healthy lifestyle.I visit Jane as well as following enjoyable and relaxing exercises at home now and I feel on top of the world!”

Testimonial Paul

“I’ve been a regular patient of Jane for over 6 years – as an office based workaholic and irregular runner, I’ve found regular sports massage essential to my well being. Jane is a very talented therapist and considers the holistic patient, she is able to identify and deal with specific problem areas, as well as offering practical suggestions of exercises that really help. Jane has a wonderfully personable manner – I can’t recommend her highly enough.”

Testimonial Susan

“I’ve been a regular client of Jane for over ten years now and the sessions have been a massive help in keeping me active and competitive in my sports of running and cycling. Jane is very good at finding and dealing with problem areas and her massage technique also includes stretching and working the muscles, while giving excellent advice on exercises and encouragement. Jane is never judgemental, always sympathetic and welcoming and importantly, you never feel rushed. Definitely recommended.”

Testimonial Andy

“I think Jane is a brilliant teacher-professional,motivational, friendly and inclusive. She explains each move expertly and sets the class at a good pace. I feel rejuvenated after every class. Pilates with Jane has transformed how I think about my body, in particular my breathing, posture and core strength. Since I started Pilates, the chronic back ache I used to suffer from has gone and I feel much more flexible and connected to my body. Jane utilises every minute of the class effectively and always has time to help each individual, while creating a fun, learning environment for the group. Thank you so much!”

Testimonial Emma

“We find Jane’s classes to be very welcoming and relaxed. the small class size makes it more personal, and means that everybody gets the attention they need. During the class Jane offers different ways of performing each move which allows you to develop at your own pace – we never felt inadequate as beginners, and as we improve we can still benefit from every session. We feel great after every class and have recommend Jane’s classes to our friends.”
