“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.”
