Treatment Received: Physiotherapist Consultation
My Physiotherapy appointment at the Body Well Group Clinic went well and I was very pleased with the service although I disagree with the assessment. I was given a great consultation for free.

The clinic gave me a good consultation and even better treatment for my Physiotherapy appointment, they were not hard to find and the treatment was excellent.

"The customer service is superb and the facilities are great"
100%Reviewed 10 Jul 2017 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Back Pain Treatment
For me, Bodywell has been an extended family. The staff and Dr. Christian genuinely care about you as a person and for your wellbeing. As a student at the University of Kent, they were always flexible with my schedule and provided me with as much support as they could offer. It is even easy to walk to the clinic in between classes as it's ideally located behind Parkwood. Upon entering the doors everyone knows each other- staff and customers alike and you feel welcomed and comfortable. The customer service is superb and the facilities are great. Everything you need for your wellbeing is under one roof including spinal specialist, chiropractor, nutritionist, podiatrist, personal trainer and excellent masseuses, not to mention x-ray equipment, thermal imaging scanning and all the equipment needed to perform comprehensive examinations. Bodywell really does excel in valuing your time by ensuring that everything and everyone can easily be accessible.

I suffered from severe lower back pain and chronic headache which interrupted my daily life and sleep activity for almost 10 years. After 12 weeks of spinal adjustments with Dr. Christian and his team consisting of Emma, Emily, and Kerry-Ann I am happy to report that I am in better shape. After my first adjustment, I could immediately feel the difference in my body and experienced increased flexibility. As strange as it may sound, I did not even know it was possible to turn my head as far left and right before getting my adjustments as I had gotten accustomed to living with limited mobility that I thought it was just the norm. Today, I can sleep through a full night without interrupted sleep caused by discomfort in my back. I would like to thank the team at Bodywell including Chantel, Katherine, and Martina for quite literally changing my life.

As a student, the team at Bodywell are super considerate and will do their best to make sure you are back to optimal health without the financial strain. They have been great with offering huge discounts and a flexible payment plan that I am able to manage. There is literally no reason why you can't or are not able to take your health into your own hands! They even offer complimentary spinal assessments which are a huge cost saver so even just coming in for a comprehensive consultation will cost you nothing. I urge all students to take advantage of their complimentary services as a) it's just good to know what is happening with your body; b) it's possible that stress can manifest into physical problems so it's prudent to address this and c) it's free so why not?

Thank you Bodywell!

I definitely recommend.

"The staff is ready to help"
100%Reviewed 28 Jun 2017 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Physiotherapy
I had my initial consultation just a few days ago. My appointment was timely, professional, and the doctor and staff really knew their stuff. No one has ever been so thorough and identified the cause of the problem I was having. I am really impressed and have no hesitation in recommending others.

From the moment you drive into the car park, you will know you are in the exact right place. It is beautiful! Car parking is easy and the staff is ready to help, always going the extra mile if need be.

"I have equally been amazed by their attention and service"
100%Reviewed 18 Jun 2017 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Physiotherapy
I first went to bodywell as my parents decided after a few years of back pain it was about time I got it looked at properly. They had been visited the centre for over a year and were very impressed with the results from all the different services they offer. I have equally been amazed by their attention and service. Last year I had an emergency situation with my back and was in excruciating pain, almost unable to walk. I was seen by both Christian and Tracey, daily, for two weeks. They helped to get me moving and even called after hours and months afterward to check in my recovery. Not being local we changed to a practice near to us in Surrey, but we have since returned to Bodywell. These guys are amazing and I would recommend them to anyone.

Staff are attentive and communication is clear throughout. The centre is bright clean and airy and has an amazing positive atmosphere

"The same positive experience"
100%Reviewed 16 Mar 2017 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Chiropractor Consultation
I always read reviews with skepticism but after going to the practice 6 months ago all I can say is that BodyWell really does deserve 5 stars.
From the doctors to the support staff, the whole centre exudes a level of service that I have not experienced anywhere else.
If you are serious about getting your health back, like myself then I would recommend going to BodyWell.
Personally, I am so glad that I went, and I hope by making this review others will make the time to have the same positive experience.

5 star service, treatment, and experience!

"Haven't looked back since"
100%Reviewed 27 Feb 2017 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Chiropractor Consultation
I went to BodyWell after experiencing neck pain and trapped nerves in my hip. After testing I was told that my right arch was collapsing causing my hip pain, and that my neck was 2cm too far forwards caused by poor posture at my desk resulting in neck pain. I started treatment and haven't looked back since.

The staff are always so polite and eager to help- I really feel like they care. I've recommended several members of my family since and would continue to recommend them.

"We all love BodyWell and what they are doing for us"
100%Reviewed 29 Oct 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Physiotherapist Consultation
Within a a few sessions with Dr Christian my mum who for the last four or five years of barely being able to leave the house due to depression and suffering from back and neck problems from an injury over 20 years ago suddenly sprang back into life, after a few short months she is now working again and enjoying life once more, now not only my mum but me my brother and my grandma are all going to BodyWell and are finding out how easy it is to live a healthier fuller life, I cannot recommend this place enough, Dr Christian is very approachable and always makes you feel welcome, all the staff do and I recently went to him to ask for more help and he has given it to me, so if you want to feel better about life just pick up the phone or come down and book an appointment!

We came across the clinic by accident, my grandma found a voucher in the paper and said she would pay for my mum as she suffers bad from back and neck pain among other things, after my mum's first adjustment I witnessed the whole thing and it was quite shocking but she got off the table and bent down to pick something up off the floor and came straight back up, she did this two more times without falling over, it doesn't sound like much but it was a big deal for her and for me, my grandma finding that voucher is the best thing that has happened to our family in a long time, we all love BodyWell and what they are doing for us.

"I chose BodyWell because their ideals and ethos are the same as how I view my health."
100%Reviewed 28 Oct 2016 We were unable to verify the reviewer.
Treatment Received: Physiotherapist Consultation
Really love the ethos and atmosphere at BodyWell. I'm not in pain, but I don't want to be. I've been looking for a place like this for a long time that isn't all about crisis care, but long term wellness and health. My adjustments from Christian energise me and my deep tissue sessions with Emily iron out all the creases I get from my gym classes.

If you have similar ideals about health and well being as I do, then look no further than Dr Christian and his team at BodyWell.

I chose BodyWell because their ideals and ethos are the same as how I view my health.
