I have been extremely pleased and extremely grateful for the wonderful treatment I have received at Ambulant Physiotherapy. I arrived in agony and after just a few sessions, I am feeling so much better.

From the first appointment I had where I was struggling to lift my arm properly, to the last where I could play squash shots again, you were extremely professional and your diagnosis was spot on.

R Mackie, October 2006

This is the third time I have been to Ambulant Physiotherapy Ltd for acupuncture and massage by Martha Richardson. It is truly a remarkable, relaxing treatment and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
