"I came to BodyWell not quite knowing what to expect. I was in pain and in reflection I guess I was lost as to what to do. My neck and lower back pain was affecting my sleep, my mood, my work and my home life. The team at BodyWell always offer a friendly smile and a warm welcome. You didn't just focus on my back pain you helped me look at my health and life style as a whole. I'm now swimming twice a week, I eat healthier than I ever have and I've lost weight. Who would have thought this time last year I'd be raw food juicing!!! My family and friends have commented on how significant the change is across the board. I have more energy now that I find I get more done including the fact that I went out there and landed my dream job! Oh and did I mention I don't remember the last time I took a pain killer or lost a nights sleep due to my back! To the whole team at BodyWell I thank you from the bottom of my heart."

"Discovered BodyWell through a Groupon Massage offer. Best massage I have ever had. Went for a spine and health check with the in-house Chiropractic Specialist and learnt about why I was getting recurring neck and shoulder pains. I thought it was stress, but after I saw my x-ray, it was black and white, literally! II could see a bone in my neck putting pressure on nerves, resulting in my pain and headaches. Started with some adjustments, which corrected the spinal problem and now I feel in the best of health. Thank you!"
