“I highly recommend Bodymotion and in particular Em Manaton. Em was able to get me back up and running after I injured my back and ankle last year. Her expert advice and programme of exercises helped strengthen my lower back and her brilliant soft tissue massage worked magic on my injured and painful achilles. Anyone that has suffered from a back injury will know how low and miserable it can make you feel and I genuinely left every appointment with Em feeling a lot more positive about my progress.”
“The experience from the booking to the actual massage was excellent. Easy to amend the booking if required and Emma was superb.”
“I arrived in London after a long flight from Australia with back spasms and inflammation in my lower discs – 2 weeks before I was to walk the Camino Frances from St Jean Pied de Port to Santiago de Compostela. Emma Manaton treated me twice and there was an immediate improvement. Emma’s understanding of the problem, and effective treatment of it, enabled me to complete the 800 Km walk without experiencing any further problems with my back. And she took the time to contact me after the walk to see how my back was – that typifies the professional and caring nature of Emma. I would not hesitate to recommend her.”
“Em and Caroline are fantastic. I’ve been a number of times and have had great treatment and advice ahead of my marathon. They are very professional, friendly and took time out to check in to see how I was progressing. I would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for a good chiropractor or sports therapist.”
“Half way through a relatively undemanding run I came to an abrupt halt as my calf muscle had knotted tighter than a Rastafarian dreadlock.
Obvious to the touch, the knots and pain were not responding anything like quickly enough to the Nurofen gel I was regularly applying and I knew I needed professional help to bring the situation under control.
I was recommended Bodymotion and called for an appointment. The next day I was limping in to see Em Manaton in her comfortable surgery right in the heart of the City.
Expertly using a combination of deep muscle massage and acupuncture on the inflamed injury I felt after the first half hour session the knots untangling and the pain easing. On leaving the Bodymotion clinic, I felt for the first time since the run, I could again climb and descend stairs without shooting pain.
Over the course of the next three weeks Em’s treatment of massage and acupuncture coupled with suggested stretching and exercise routines did the job. I’m now back on the treadmill, in an enjoyable way, and my legs feel supple.
I don’t feel my recuperation would have been anything like as quick without Em’s help and I have a suspicion her therapy sorted out years of accumulated muscle twist. To say I thoroughly recommend Em and Bodymotion would be an understatement.”
Emma Manaton helped me during my recovery from Achilles tendonitis. It was great to have someone who was so enthusiastic at silly ‘o’clock in the morning when I had my sessions. Emma’s energy and enthusiasm helped me through a very frustrating injury and she was always positive and helpful. Emma was always available by email and phone to answer my questions and it was great to have someone explain why I needed to work on my terrible core! Thanks to Emma, I was back up and running very quickly and managed to get through the event I was training for. She’s a brilliant Sports Massage and Rehabber and I highly recommend her!
