We really do pride ourselves on providing our patients with a service that comes from the heart. We feel that their therapy doesn’t only happen on the treatment couch but in all our interactions with them and their families. It makes us equally proud to get as many testimonials as to the quality of our work.
Below are a few. We update our website as often as we can, however, please also take a look at ur social media channels for even more reccomendations/testimonials...
“Nikki Robinson and the team at Holisticare have really changed my life and my relationship with my body. They are helping me so much to release the traumas of trapped injuries that cause such pain. I could not be more happy to support their work, to make sure more people can get free of suffering.”
"The best thing about a treatment at Holisticare is that not only does it sort out the aches and pains that you came for, but also as the treatment goes on you have a huge feeling of relaxation, as though kilos of weight are falling from your shoulders, or as though you have put down a heavy bag that you have been carrying around for far too long. You can almost literally feel the weight dropping away, and it is hugely relaxing."
"I attended the Free Yourself classes as I needed to find a way to stretch without hurting myself as I have various health issues. I really looked forward to the sessions each week. We learned about our bodies, the fascia and how to stretch and work with our bodies. In each session you learnt new exercises about the part of the body you were working on and were given other tips on health and well-being. You also had a relaxation at the end of the class. I left rejuvenated and refreshed and would highly recommend the class!"
"Fabulous! These treatments are powerful - and the more you can relax/release and allow the therapist to do their job, the more your body is able to respond & the more benefit you get. As a Yoga Teacher and Therapist it has been a revelation to find a Physio as passionate as I am about working with the body's fascia! Myofascial Release works beautifully with Yoga and Yoga Therapy to unwind areas of tension in the body. It is very special for me to receive MFR from a professional who understands my body and the unique way my personal history informs how my body responds and what it needs to release areas of tension which I can then maintain with my personal yoga practice."
"I have recommended this treatment to almost everyone I talk to, it has been the only non medication treatment that has actually worked and I have been right through the NHS pain relief system from operations to nerve denervation and enormous amounts of opiates. This is gentle, non-invasive and relaxing, in a warm and caring atmosphere. I dread visiting the doctor but look forward to my treatment at Holisticare."
"Can not recommend this enough, it helped with so many aspects of my pregnancy,... nausea, back pain, general relaxation and time to focus on my growing baby."
"Thank you so much for all your help this afternoon with my teenage daughter. She has been having a few aches on her lower back for the last few weeks. She does multi-events at county standard and just needed some help and guidance. Damian was amazing he explained everything to us both about the reasons why this happens and supplied us with exercises to do at home to help her. All the staff we met today were so very helpful, thank you so much and we are going to make this a regular monthly appointment as I think it is a great way to ensure my daughter's body stays injury free and stays in the best form possible. See you again soon.."
"After having tried Physiotherapy on a number of occasions, following minor car accident and having on-going issues for over a year, I tried Holisticare, which was the best decision I ever made. After my first session I actually stood up straighter than I had done in a long time, felt more relaxed and had less pain and stress. I have even managed to learn to listen to my body. The Myofascial Release treatment is very non-invasive and works with your body. Since starting my treatment, I am now balanced, can lay flat on the floor, have reduced food intolerances, am back swimming and slowly getting back into running. Absolutely amazing, I would totally recommend Nikki and her team at Holisticare.."
"Always a quick diagnosis and a speedy treatment programme that had got me back on track. No matter what sports injury I incur, I know that the team will be able to fix it. I have total confidence in their approach and results. The treatment is effective and long lasting. Results are seen quickly. The team also have strong inter-personal skills and are a pleasure to deal with."
"I have Fibromyalgia - I ached all over and, most importantly, I couldn't lift my right arm higher than just below my shoulder. Firstly, within minutes I could move my arm in ways I couldn't have done before and now I have total flexibility of my arms. My 'ache' levels are at a minimum and I now only need a session every four - five weeks. The technique facilitates the body to 'mend' itself. It is unique, gentle, relaxing and effective. The therapists are honest and I couldn't recommend them highly enough.."
"I had hip and knee pain caused by osteoarthritis. The treatment is professional, informative, educational, relaxing and above all effective. I can get attention to my long term symptoms in a calm and friendly relaxed environment. Immediately after my second treatment I could feel the benefit of the treatment, the treatment has had a remarkable impact on my day to day life. It has relieved pain and discomfort that I have lived with for 5 years, amazing and pain free."
"Wonderful! I have really enjoyed it and have been feeling the benefits from day 1. I have progressively felt better all week. It has been great to meet and be treated by all the therapists. The myofascial system obviously benefits from this type of intensive programme."
"Myofascial release was new to me. I found it slightly unusual - it made me feel a bit weird but the pain was reduced even after the first session. Subsequent sessions improved the pain more and made me feel posturally straighter and better aligned than I had in a long time. I use the trick of lying on a tennis ball to stretch my psoas muscle if back pain threatens. It seems to prevent the back "going" completely."
"It has been an amazing week. By immersing myself in an intensive programme I have begun to learn more about the patterns of restriction and dysfunction in my body and how emotional and mental health and day to day functions are all linked. Whilst initially a little apprehensive working with four different therapists I felt it has worked very well. Each of the therapists had a different approach bringing out different challenges and helped me see and feel different behavioural patterns. Each therapist very much had their place in the process. Myofascial Release is the best treatment available. All the therapists I worked with are fantastic and both Jacina and Ali are so friendly and helpful on reception.. It's a very friendly and safe environment to help heal."
"I seem to have found a treatment that has made some difference to my back. I normally mountain bike a couple of times a week and have had a couple of rides where I haven't felt any tightness in my back where I would have previously. I would base my recommendation on the fact that it is the first treatment I've had since sustaining a back injury that has brought about some improvement. After treatment you also do not feel like you have been pummelled as with certain other types of treatment."

"I had headaches for three months, and fortnightly doctors' appointments with no improvement or diagnosis. The treatment was excellent. Thorough, professional, sensitive. First time that a professional has listened to me (asked me questions beyond how the headaches feel) and actually examined me."
"Relaxed and friendly, very beneficial treatment that removed my pain and allowed me to use my head and neck again. I could hardly move my head when I came in and had a hugely increased range of movement when I left, making every movement easier and less painful. Before I tried MFR I had no idea what it was or what an important impact it would have on my life, mobility and recovery from injury. I would recommend the treatment to anyone as it is so gentle and works with the body. It is also excellent to maintain mobility and health, so you don't have to wait until you are already in pain to feel the benefits."
"The therapist was helpful, explained what was going on and how the treatment works, understood my lifestyle and any previous problems, professional approach. No difference at all when I left the clinic but 2/3 hours later I suddenly realised the pain had gone!! It showed me the potential effect this treatment has, non-invasive yet effective. I would recommend to anyone to try it as I feel that it can help."
There are more, but we have not yet added them...stay tuned!
