“I saw Caroline – who was nothing short of superb. She immediately put me at ease, spent time diagnosing the issue, then took remedial action to get me mobile and ease the pain. I walked into the clinic bent double in agony, and walked out upright. As anyone with severe backpain will tell you (and have told me since!), you have no idea how amazing that feels.”
“Caroline was very pleasant and professional throughout the five or six treatments, involving massage, manipulation and acupuncture, that I had – the first alone produced a marked improvement. I would thoroughly recommend both her and the clinic, and will be back if I have any more muscular or skeletal problems!”
“I was treated by Caroline Scott and found the clinic to be consistently excellent, both in terms of service and the quality of the treatment.”
“I had the opportunity to get a massage treatment by Kerry. Kerry is very knowledgeable at what she does and carried out a very thorough body assessment prior to my massage. I highly recommend Kerry- She is very professional and friendly and will definitely be going back in the near future.”
“Ben was a great guy to see about my rugby injury. Clearly very knowledgeable, he explained everything in full during my sessions and then gave a very useful onward referral to a specialist for my problem. Also, Bodymotion were very good at fitting appointments around my fairly chaotic schedule. A pleasure to deal with – would happily recommend as a top chiro clinic in the city.”
“I went to see Ben recently with a shoulder impingement issue. He has been very patient, professional and attentive to my complaints. I am now feeling better thanks to the treatment course he has been doing. He also prescribed some exercises to do on my own which I have found very useful. I would highly recommend Ben and his practice.”
“I’m a gymnast currently training with GB and USA aiming to compete at Tokyo Olympics.
Ben Glenister sorted out my wrist injuries at the beginning of last year, since then he has been the only chiropractor I trusted to help me with all of my pain and injuries.
I have been to several practitioners in London, way too many, and nobody could ever come close to how good Ben is. He is also an extremely honest man, who will refer you to someone else if he couldn’t help, but this has never been a case.
I am beyond grateful to know Ben and to be helped by him.”
“I’ve been using Bodymotion for over 8 years now and would certainly recommend Ben and the rest of the team. I’ve always received good advice and great service even when there’s been gaps in my treatment due to traveling etc.
Even though I don’t work near the city anymore I still travel over to Bodymotion as I wouldn’t use another Chiropractor in London”
“Ben has really understood my needs and back problem, and accelerated my recovery. I have had a few different chiropractors due to relocating and came to BodyMotion frustrated with expensive treatment that was making me feel worse. Ben quickly understood and improved my situation and advised me about how to manage it. Emma also gave me useful rehab exercises which have really helped me rehabilitate and get stronger. Body Motion can definitely be trusted to give you only the treatment that you need, and not treat you like a cash cow – which has happened to me in the past. And importantly I am now much better and know what I need to do to maintain my condition.
“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.”
“I went in with a disc problem and Caroline has done a fantastic job rehabilitating me. After bouncing around London looking for a good chiropractor for 3 months, I finally found this clinic. I strongly recommend Bodymotion for any disc/back problems.”
“Caroline fixed me! And she always remembers what I’ve been doing! I return sporadically for her to remind me to stretch after the gym! Friendly and caring! Never met Denise and Marilyn but they are always exceedingly helpful via email!”
“Bodymotion was recommended to me when I had a painful displaced rib that needed immediate attention and I’m so pleased I was pointed in their direction! My practitioner is Caroline who is both caring and skilled in her profession, when we first met she took the time to truly understand what was going on to give me the instant relief I desperately needed then beyond that has kept me in good shape through subsequent maintenance visits which I actually look forward to attending! I know Caroline only recommends the frequency of visits I truly need and there is also the convenience of the online booking system to make any changes or new appointments. If you do call, the receptionists are friendly and helpful and can email payment receipts instantly if claiming back on healthcare. I have no hesitation in recommending Bodymotion to anyone seeking skilled and friendly practitioners in a convenient central London location. Your body will thank you for it!”
“Really good practice, they are always on time and the appointments last the amount of time they should last. Caroline is professional and very helpful! I have been feeling much better after my visits. I have been seeing chiropractors for the past 7 years, and this is definitely one of the best practices I have come across.”
“I’ve been involved in a bicycle accident earlier this year and been clinically diagnosed with a whiplash, which left me with a horrendous pain and neck stiffness.
I arrived to Bodymotion in the Barbican on emergency appointment after extremely bad treatment from private physiotherapy session earlier that day, which left me with inability to freely move by back and neck to my left side.
Upon my arrival I’ve been approached by a sympathetic professional who after thorough examination knew exactly how do deal with the symptoms.
I’ve been seeing Caroline Scott for over three months now and I couldn’t recommend her more. I’ve been treated eight times and I can feel enormous improvement since my first visit. She is truly amazing!”
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!

I had been suffering with daily headaches from the age of 7. Many times these headaches would be migraines. More recently, I was getting one very bad migraine headache a week.
Over the last 30 years I have consulted with numerous GP’s, Opticians, Osteopaths and a Neurologist to find out why I was getting these headaches and search for a cure. Unfortunately, none off the courses of treatments from these various consultants worked.
I was unaware of Chiropractors, and the capabilities they have. A good friend of mine suggested I give it a go since I had tried everything else with no success.
My first consultation with Emma Daniells was in April 2006. After this session I was amazed that I could actually notice a considerable difference. My headaches had become far less severe.
Following this initial treatment, over the course of the next 10 weeks I had more Chiropractic sessions with Emma Daniells.
I am now practically “headache free”. The treatment has improved my day to day well being. In short it has totally changed my life.
I would recommend Emma Daniells without hesitation, and I’d like to thank her for what she has done for me.
I sustained some serious injuries to my leg and shoulder after a heavy fall whilst skiing off-piste last winter. Body-motion were quick to accurately diagnose the injuries and to design a rehab program to repair the damage. I felt they were emotionally involved with my improvements in the six months of re-hab. Having just gone again this winter, the rehab program has not only repaired the damage but has also improved my skiing as it has built my core strength in a more balanced way. I cannot recommend them more highly.
When I went to Andrew I was in a sorry state. Terrible terrible back and leg pains. I didn’t find it just difficult to run… I found it arduous to walk. I was so out of balance that I even found myself stumbling when standing still. I was 57 and definitely in the wrong body.
It has taken a year and I feel reborn. I get out of bed and walk downstairs without planning my every step. I am back at the gym, swimming and even playing tennis! I am living again and enjoy being active.
Bit by bit Andrew has put me together again. He is brilliant.
I originally came to Jack for “preventative” sports massage. I have no hesitation in recommending him as an excellent sports massage therapist but the main purpose of this testimonial is to specifically recommend his core rehab and running specific performance programmes which have had an extremely beneficial effect on my running. If you are a runner wanting to see significant improvements in your performance I suggest you seriously consider these programmes.
I have never previously been very good about core work on the basis that it takes too long and I would sooner be running. Jack’s approach is to prescribe a limited number of really targeted core exercises which he works through with you in detail in one to one sessions so that you know exactly what is required. He is extremely encouraging and patient. He backs this up by an email after each session setting out the exercises so that you can work through them at home and is always available on email to answer any queries. The targeted approach means that the exercises only take around 20 minutes and so can easily be fitted around running sessions. We did core rehab for several months during which time I saw Jack about once a month and then worked on the exercises 3 times a week at home and as I improved he prescribed different more challenging core exercises each time.
In June I continued to do the core programme at home and my sessions with Jack moved on to a specific running performance programme which he designed to help me work on making my running gait more efficient. The core rehab work definitely gave me the strength to get the most out of this programme. The running drills which Jack prescribes combine well with my running sessions as warm-up exercises or as part of my speed work. Jack makes the sessions fun and I really feel they have livened up my running. After only a couple of months of the specific running performance programme my steady run pace has improved by around a minute per mile without my trying to push that pace at all and without my heart rate increasing. Further I am running a marathon in October and have just completed a 20 mile training race at exactly hoped for marathon pace. Throughout the race I was able to maintain good form and to finish strongly. More importantly I recovered from the race very quickly and was back training in a couple of days. All this is very much due to the core and specific running work I have been doing with Jack.
