Reviewed 06 February 2015 "Efficiency and flexibility"
"Spinal Rehabilitation - Neck and Back Injury

I’ve recommended Bodywell to everybody including my sceptical daughter who had her free checkup and, as with me, it only took one visit to know that they’re good for you! It’s not just their skills, holistic ethos or top equipment but the genuine care and warmth from everybody. Their efficiency and flexibility means there’s no waiting around and the free workshops and movement classes helped me reconnect to looking after myself properly. My back problems began in my teens and for decades blighted my work and social life. Now? I have no back problem and enjoy a lot of heavy lifting in a woodland. My all round health is better than it has ever been, the temple that is my body has been wonderfully redecorated and I put that down to Bodywell encouragement and skills. Many thanks."

"Spinal Manipulation

Best advice. I have been visiting BodyWell for a few weeks and have found the Chiropractors, Specialists and all the staff to not only be very professional and helpful, but motivated and always willing to help. This is a stark contrast to what I have experienced elsewhere. I am sure that many other patients would feel the same as they care for so many people along with there whole families, offering individual care to suit your personal needs. Not a tablet or pill in site so you know your getting the route of your problem addressed. I have not heard anyone complain and only have praise for the expertise and care received. The only negative feedback I would have is, open more centres closer to London so it is easier for my family to visit you!"

Reviewed 31 December 2014 "I tell everyone I love about Bodywell"
"Adult adjustments

I am amazed I didn't understand the healing powers of chiropractic before now! I struggled with chronic asthma, back pain, rhinitis and major hair loss in 2013. I discovered Bodywell through word of mouth towards the end of 2013, by mid 2014 I felt like someone had given me my life back. Did they perform miracles, no, I simply had my spine realigned/adjusted, which fired up my nervous system like an electric inferno, and my body thought it had died and gone to heaven. Things just started to work well. My nails grew, my hair grew, and I can now walk up hills, as opposed to dreading them. Bodywell encourages wellness through adjustments, massage and a healthy lifestyle, it's the best medicine. The centre is warm and inviting, the staff is friendly and kind. Best of all the payments were tailored to be kind to my pocket as I am as poor as a church mouse. I tell everyone I love about Bodywell, it's the best thing that has happened to me in a long time."
