I had been to the clinic before for sports massages with Andy last year for muscle tension and was very happy with his treatment.
This time I had been suffering 4 months of ongoing Sciatica in my right thigh ignoring it hoping it would go away! My right knee was also giving way due to being diagnosed with osteoarthritis back in February after an ultrasound scan and I had a lot of built up muscle tension because of being under stress and being a computer user. I was given an appointment with Dr. Mykel Mason, a lovely friendly kind chiropractor who assessed me under his consultation with a treatment plan at the end of May. Dr. Mason was able to give me more flexibility with my neck relieving the pressure felt in my right thigh. The Sciatica returned as I wasn't able to commit to two weekly regular treatments but the treatments helped to make me less tense in the neck.
At the end of June, I went down with a locked neck and muscle tension in my shoulder on top of shingles and constant infections of the scalp. As I had shingles and was contagious I had to stop all treatment until recently as my head is so sensitive to touch. I'm in post shingles phase where I'm having intense nerve pain in my head and taking nerve pain medication.
Currently, I'm having regular weekly treatment with Olly for my muscle tension in my neck and shoulder to release the tension which has made it more easier to sleep and eased the shoulder pain. I can actually turn my neck now and feel less tense after only 2 sessions.
I can also recommend the counselor in the clinic who I see once a week who counsels carers under the care the carers scheme and also find her very warm, empathic and kind, it's like speaking to a close friend. She makes me feel very comfortable and she is very easy to open up to.
I must say this is the same for both Dr. Mason and Olly. They are very kind people who are genuinely concerned about their clients and go the extra mile to do anything to help. I would highly recommend, Dr. Mykel Mason, Olly, Louise and the counselor for all my help with my emotional and physical well-being. Although it is taking a slow time to recover, I'm definitely on the mend thanks to their help with my treatments.
I returned to the clinic this year as I found the clinic's staff very warm and friendly and very knowledgeable. It's always a pleasant environment which makes you feel comfortable and relaxed and it is also in an ideal location in the middle of town.
