"I am a 77 year old lady, I still keep a horse and compete in Weston reining. Gemma has kept me mobile over the years with regular MOT. I recommend her for anyone with joint pain, muscle pain, and stiffness and for correcting body alignment. She will gently put everything right" N Atherton.
"Gemma has helped me greatly with a long standing back problem via various treatment methods. She explains what she is going to do and why. Gemma looks at the whole body and not just what you think is the problem area" C Batten.
"I found Gemma provided a good standard of professional service in a friendly and compassionate way, and gave me some good advice regarding my treatment" G Boyle
"Visited Gemma several times over the year to work on long existing neck and back pain problems. Gemma was very knowledgeable and professional and her work has dramatically improved the problem. Her advice on posture and exercises has helped me to maintain a pain free neck. I would highly recommend that you go and see her to sort out your problems. Do not suffer in silence!" M McFeat.
"It can be a little daunting visiting a Chiropractor for the first time. You don’t need to worry however, Gemma has a wonderful knack of putting you at ease. After a chat about my pains and a careful assessment, she explained and drew a clear diagram of my problem area and described how she intended to treat the problem. Over the course of a few weeks Gemma’s treatment has returned my range of movement, from when I first saw her I could hardly move, now I’m close to being able to run again. I’m continuing to use the remedial exercises that she has advised me that will improve the problem and prevent a reoccurrence. Gemma’s skill, knowledge, and friendly yet professional approach are to be commended" C Porter.
"I first visited Gemma as part of a Groupon offer in an effort to reduce the amount I was spending on Chiropractic treatment.

E Gunn
"I went to Gemma with a really painful back, which she expertly relieved for me. It hasn't returned. I recommended Gemma to a friend who was also very please with the results.
I have never been to a chiropractor before, Gemma put me at easy and was very helpful and professional. I would have no hesitation recommending her to other friends if the needs should arise" L Bees
"I have used Gemma to help solve a recurring back problem. I can not speak highly enough of her chiropractic skills. Within 5 minutes of being in her room, she had identified all my major pains and aches, including some I had forgotten! It is always a pleasure to go and see her and my back is infinitely better as a result. Thanks for all your help Gemma! "A Greenwood.
"Gemma did an excellent job of identifying the cause of my back pain within our first session and set to work on quickly sorting it over a short run of sessions through gentle, but very effective McTimoney chiropractic techniques. Gemma gives a good balance of on-the-spot treatment and advice around physiotherapy exercises/follow-up work to do at home. " E Spillaine
"Gemma is my introduction to chiropractic services, and I've been highly impressed by her knowledge, expertise and bedside manner.

"I visited Gemma due to a very painful shoulder. She very quickly located the source of the problem and after just a few sessions the pain disappeared. It is now several months later and the pain has not returned. I'd certainly recommend Gemma without reservation - she was just great." I Caskie.
"Gemma's knowledge and expertise was excellent. By making small precise adjustments to my back and the alignment of my hips, Gemma successfully resolved an on-going soreness that I had suffered sporadically with my lower back for a number of years. Unfortunately for herself, Gemma was too successful as I have not had to return in over 6 months. But should I ever have another issue I would definitely see her again for treatment. "A Gibson
