    review rating 5  I’ve been living with lower back pain for ~5 years and I had nearly accepted it as something I will just have to live with. However, Jonathan Cairns took the time to understand the issue, explaining clearly what the problem was and then mapping out the route to become pain free. He tailored exercises for me that meet my fitness goals whilst also accelerating my recovery. He combines this with a hands-on technique that aids pain relief. The bounty of knowledge he has and the scientific literature he uses to guide his practice provides reassurance and is further evidence of his quality as a chiropractor. My time in pain has decreased significantly after just 3 months working with John, I only wish I had attended his clinic sooner!

    review rating 5  I came in to check my back after a year of working from home. I've had 7 sessions with Emma. As a result, my lower back problems are gone and I've been given tools to work on my mid back issues. Love it and recommend it wholeheartedly.

    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 went to Bodymotion as I was experiencing back and neck pain and restricted arms movement, and other practitioners were not able to identify a cause or solution. Emma was able to diagnose the problem and over the course of several treatments she was able to improve my movement and significantly reduce the pain. She is very approachable and professional and I would highly recommend her.

    review rating 5  Without Emma, I'd be curled up in a ball somewhere with awful back, neck, and shoulder pain not able to stand up straight, turn my head, or lift my arms. She's a total pro approaching her practice wholistically and her treatments bring such sweet relief. Good chiropractors are worth their weight in gold...she's the best.

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 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!

    review rating 5  Emma is a life saver. I have been treated by her twice now. The first time I arrived, I was utterly miserable with my back pain. 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.

I started seeing Emma at Bodymotion and within a few sessions my neck pain was as good as gone and my mobility was significantly increased. She’s a total pro, friendly and knowledgable, and thanks to her I’m feeling much, much better!

    review rating 5  Emily White is fantastic. I have seen different chiropractors over my adult life and I have to say she is one of the best. I am visiting from the United States and I hurt my hip and was having difficulty even bending over. After the first visit my hip felt great after the second, I was back to my old self. I then fell while away and was so happy that I had Emily to get me back on track. Will continue to use her when needed while I am here. Wish I could take her back to the States with me. I highly recommend Emily White and Body Motion.

    review rating 5  I booked an appointment with Natasha at Bodymotion with a rotator cuff injury. My doctor and the NHS physiology had been helpful, but Natasha provided a more focused diagnosis of the injury and the three sessions I had with her, over the course of 6 weeks, made a very significant improvement, to the point now where my shoulder is almost back to normal. The massages eased the pain and discomfort considerably, especially in the first session, enabling me to sleep better while the injury healed. I'd recommend Natasha highly. Thanks!

    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 saw Ben Glenister at Bodymotion and I would highly recommended to anyone suffering with ongoing back problems. Ben is super friendly and listens to your needs well.

Thank You Ben! 🙂 Georgina Bailey

    review rating 5  Really easy and user friendly appointment booking which is very helpful trying to arrange around working hours. 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.

    review rating 5  I visited Bodymotion because I was experiencing pain and swelling in my neck and shoulders and my doctor was unable to find the cause after a series of hospital tests. Emma was able to diagnose the problem immediately and within the space of six sessions was able to restore full movement in my neck, reduce the swelling and now I have no pain. Emma is very friendly and professional and I would highly recommend

  • 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.

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 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 have to admit, I went to body motion as I had been treated my Natasha in the past and she was fantastic, she quickly got to the root of a knee problem that I had, for a number of years. 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!

    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.

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.

Emma took the time to correctly assess and understand the issue and then got straight to work sorting it out. a few weeks on and i feel a million bucks! thank you.

    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. In the first session Jonathan took time to really understand the issue, explaining clearly what the problem was and then mapping our how I would get back to pain free. The results of this have been great, and I would thoroughly recommend visiting Jonathan for treatment

    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.

    review rating 5  I couldn’t more highly recommend Dr. Ben Glenister and his staff at Bodymotion! I am an American living and working in London, and have been seeing chiropractors in the USA for 15+ years. I was nervous about finding a new chiropractor, but when I hurt my back during a fall in Scotland I finally made my way into Bodymotion. I wish I hadn’t waited so long! Dr. Ben is great - intelligent and compassionate, which makes a world of a difference when you’re in back pain. I arrived in April 2019 barely able to stand up on my own, and after several weeks of consistent treatments (adjustments, acupuncture, muscle work) I was back to 100% mobility again by May 2019. Now I maintain my health with regular appointments. Thank you Bodymotion!

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 🙂

I'd seen other healthcare professionals but it had never improved. After 3 sessions with Lisa over the course of two weeks, my hip is nearly back to normal - I'm truly amazed. She's so dedicated and caring and I couldn't recommend her highly enough.

She is great at identifying where the genesis of the injury is and then, literally, digging in to attack the problem area.

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.

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 !

Unable to even lift my head, Emma Daniells cracked, popped, massaged and stabbed away. After a few sessions, with the help of some targeted stretching and strengthening exercises I was in little pain and walking taller than ever! Hopefully I won’t have to return to Bodymotion ever again, but if I do, I’ll be sure to knock on Emma’s door.
