  • review rating 5  I have been in London for 4 years now and I’m so lucky to have found Darien (rmt) right away. She absolutely fantastic.. friendly, personable and professional. Location is great - steps outside moorgate station. Word of caution, Darien’s treatment room is a few floors up and while the steps are nicely carpeted, they are uneven. If you have any concerns or have limited mobility, call the clinic to see if they can arrange to have you treated on a lower floor. They’re really good with trying to accommodate.

    review rating 5  I have a long history of lower back issues. I searched for chiropractors near to my office and Bodymotion was highly recommended. I went to see Emma when I was struggling to stand up straight and walk around pain free. After taking extensive history and referring me for an MRI, it took relatively few sessions to have the issue under control. Cannot recommend Emma and Bodymotion enough.

    review rating 5  I've been to a number of osteopaths and chiropracters over the last twenty years, and Bodymotion is the best, especially for sports-related injuries and niggles. I've seen Khalil (now moved on to set up his own practice) and Jonathan and both were excellent. Knowledgeable, effective, supportive. You do have to do the prescribed exercises though 🙂

    review rating 5  I have seen a few chiropractors throughout the years and never felt much change in my body. In just a few sessions with Emma I have really noticed progress in my posture and hip mobility (my issue areas) and she has highlighted other areas to work on I hadn't noticed. Fantastic clinic with dedicated and caring team.

    review rating 5  I came to see Jonathan after my shoulder had frozen, limiting my range of motion and causing me pain. He not only treated the issue, giving me pain relief and allowing me to move naturally again, but he carefully and considerately explained what the issue was, its causes and aggravators. He was so friendly and the visits were always a positive experience. I can't recommend highly enough.

    review rating 5  I saw Ben few months ago for the first time when my back was in a very bad condition. Ben was able to explain clearly what he thought was going on and seemed to have my wellbeing in his interest. He liaised with my pilates instructor so that it works for my back. Ben was friendly and within few sessions I left feeling great! Would highly recommend.

    review rating 5  I was initially recommended Bodymotion by a friend as I have been suffering with hip & shoulder pain for a few years now and nothing seemed to help (she claimed she was saved here!). Jonathan was extremely insightful with helping me understand my injuries, explaining everything in depth but as clear as possible. I felt super comfortable and at ease throughout and I'm looking forward to continuing on with my sessions for my recovery. I would definitely recommend Jonathan and the Bodymotion clinic 🙂

    review rating 5  After a fall down the stairs which resulted in a coccyx injury, I had visited an osteopath for months with zero improvement. I came across Bodymotion and booked an appointment with Ben after seeing countless 5* reviews. Ben put me at ease, made me feel super comfortable and just has a lovely manner. After 1 session which included medical acupuncture, it was like instant relief. I revisited weekly for a few more treatment sessions and had 6 months of being completely pain-free! I highly recommend Bodymotion and will not go anywhere else now. Thanks Ben!

  • review rating 5  I had suffered from a very uncomfortable sports injury that affected my hip movements for over two or so years. After many visits to a physiotherapist to no avail, I decided to seek help from a chiropractor. I went and saw Ben Glenister at Body Motion who was absolutely helpful and after just a few sessions - plus practical exercises I was given to do in-between those sessions - I had never felt better in a very long time. I will most definitely recommend Ben, he is very professional and effective. He also takes the time to explain the technicalities of what is happening and why and also how the relevant approach and exercises will help correct the issue. Thanks again Ben really appreciate it!

    review rating 5  I came to see Jonathan for back ache I've had on-off for years. He spent most of the first session just listening to me talk about my back and really understanding what was going on, which meant he was able to diagnose the issue and how to fix it in the first session. I only ended up going twice and now feeling so much better! So so pleased and would definitely recommend anyone to go and see how he can help.

I would recommend her services to anyone!! and I would like to thank her for making me instantly feel better, which for me is priceless. Thank you!

    review rating 5  I really like this company. For weeks I've struggled with a shin injury that I suffered from football. I went to this company had my leg evaluated. The people there were very lovely. Great service, easy to book and very affordable. Not only did they helped me evaluate my injury but they also helped me with the process of booking my X-ray Appointment and making sure I get the best treatment for recovering my leg. My doctor was Emily white. She was the nicest doctor I've ever met. Overall I am very pleased with the service provided and will definitely recommend any one to go to this company if you are suffering from a sports injury.

    review rating 5  I’ve seen 8 different chiropractors over the last 30 years on a steady bases. Emily is the best. I’m a runner and was experiencing issues, tightness, and pain with my hip, knees, ankles, and achilles. She quickly diagnosed the problems and worked out a solution and treatment. Many chiropractors are good with diagnosis but fall short of treatment, some are decent with treatments, but miss in the diagnosis. In addition to being a true professional, she makes the experience lively and fun. I would have no reservations introducing and recommending Emily White to others, which I have and she treaded my niece successfully.

    review rating 5  I came to Emma with a condition called costochondritis this is a really painful inflammation in the chest that causes extreme pain. This condition made me seek emergency help on a few occasions because of its similarity to a heart attack. Came in an from the first session I started to feel a relief. 4th session in and I have not had any pain in my chest and I can now live as I did before the costochondritis. I now go to the gym as before and not needing to worry about if i can move my torso and chest. Best chiropractor in town!

He's so personable and friendly, makes you feel comfortable, and I always leave the office feeling better then when I arrived. I will keep coming back to him for as long as I need but honestly, he's helped me so much I hardly need to go at all anymore. Highly recommend.

I was fortunate enough to find this clinic and get treated. Emma worked some magic on my back and after a few session both the stiffness and pain was gone. My range of motion has also improved significantly and I’ve got great advices regarding from both Emma and Ben regarding posture and exercises. I highly recommend them to anybody who has musculoskeletal issues! Professional, friendly, knowledgeable!

Thank You Ben! 🙂 Georgina Bailey

    review rating 5  Finally, effective treatment! Jonathan has helped me with a long term issue in my upper back / shoulder blade which I've suffered for several years now. After my forth session today I'm finally getting the results I've been looking for. He has a great professional approach to the problem, and explains things concisely. The exercises are tailored and work at home. I have been sent to numerous physiotherapists and even an Orthopaedic surgeon on this issue by my health insurance provider. I only wished I found Bodymotion a few years earlier.

They have a great website, which was easy to navigate and provided all the details I needed to make an informed choice regarding the treatment and practitioner I wanted. They are very customer oriented, always checking in to make sure they provide the best quality to their clients. Regarding the practitioner, I had Emma and she was truly great, walked me through everything in every session and was very helpful with everything I needed, while keeping updated on my progress. Overall, a great experience and I highly recommend them, especially if it's your first time going to a chiropractor.

I then saw her to help me stay well and head of quad and other injuries that surface when you get older and no longer get away with doing certain exercises badly. I would highly recommend!

I got the same day appointment; I was examined, received a medical massage and a set of exercises to do at home, designed to help me heal and strengthen my muscles. Pain was over quickly. I really appreciate Dr Cairns total approach, wide knowledge and professionalism. I'll be back if ever in trouble again.

Within a few sessions, I was a different person and cannot explain how good it feels to finally live without pain. Most recently, she has treated me with a trapped nerve in my neck and again, three sessions later and I feel great. She has helped where others haven't. Thank you.

After seeing 4 prior clinics I was losing hope in finding a solution to my very uncomfortable problem. on my final attempt i came across Emma & Body Motion.

    review rating 5  I've had recurring issues with my shoulder for a few years now and had visited a few Chiropractors, the treatment I've had from Jonathan has by far exceeded what I'd had in the past.

The results of this have been great, and I would thoroughly recommend visiting Jonathan for treatment

    review rating 5  I have been going to Bodymotion for the past couple of years. I have sciatica and other problems with my lower back. Normally I come for a straightforward re-adjustment but recently I hurt myself while running so I require more intense and regular treatment. I enjoy warm and friendly atmosphere on my arrival. The chiropractors who work there are experts in their field who get to know you by listening to you and they develop a bespoke treatment plan that is just right for you. I value their individual approach to my problems and I appreciate the wide range of manipulation techniques, acupuncture and exercises they help me with. Always with kindness and care. I highly recommend this place. The location is also very convenient as it's in the Barbican complex.

    review rating 5  I've been seeing Ben Glenister at Bodymotion chiropractic every 3-4 weeks for the last 6 months while I've been recovering from a herniated disk. He has been extremely helpful in his advice and physical treatment in managing this issue. At the first consultation, he assessed my issues and wrote a lengthy letter to give to my GP with his general diagnosis which helped my doctor to be more direct with the possible treatments and scans I'd need to have. I've been very happy with his services and would happily recommend.

Emma has helped a recent flare up in chronic neck/back pain dramatically decrease in a very short time & has also provided advice for the management of the pain with exercise programs in order to make treatment work best for me. It was nice to see a chiropractor that didn’t suggest worst case scenario but rather explains what she sees and was able to minimise the problem areas.

During my time at Bodymotion I've been under the care of Ben , and I cannot thank him enough for the freedom he has given to me through his therapy. He worked with me to get my life back into order and have the ability to move pain free once again. I came into the practice on crutches unable to walk without a limp and severe pain in my glutes/lower back area and sciatica - this chronic injury was debilitating all areas of my life for too long . After seeing Ben in a matter of 2 months my life has shifted completely. Every session I feel looser, relaxed and the lasting effects have been better strength and endurance.. life changing ! Thanks again to Dr.Glenister, the work he does and knowledgeable advice he gives is tailored to you to help reach your personal goals no matter how big or small.
