Testimonials

I appreciate the time he takes...

Jason is an amazing practitioner! He’s taken away discomfort and pain, helped me to continue to train and given me a greater understanding of why I have repetitively experienced the same injuries. I appreciate the time he takes to understand the why, his ability to put you at ease during the session and his willingness to empower you with knowledge that you need to be able to help yourself. Thanks Jason!

I’ve gotten significantly better....

Been seeing Jason for months and my long term neck pain has dramatically improved with his myotherapy techniques. I’ve seen many other therapists over the years without any improvement but with Jason, I’ve gotten significantly better. Thanks

his treatment is thorough and effective...

Jase has been a godsend during training for triathlon and running events. When niggling injuries arise his treatment is thorough and effective. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend his services to anyone.

Jason has hands that can work magic...

Jason has hands that can work magic… it can be painful magic! But… that’s when you know it’s really working… 👏🏼
Brilliant skills, great guy. You can’t go wrong.

more movement and less pain for me in just a few short sessions...

Jase is a pain wizard! I had a long running shoulder injury and he managed to get more movement and less pain for me in just a few short sessions after I had unsuccessfully tried months of physio. He not only works to alleviate the pain but digs to find out why it’s happening and stop it happening again. He’s extremely knowledgeable and his no BS approach never suggests “try this exercise and come back in a week” but more of a “you shouldn’t need to come back”, which is so nice to see with a practitioner. I highly recommend Jase to anyone I know now with pain or injuries and was so grateful to be referred to him!

I can now squat without pain...

I have suffered knee issues for sometime. I had gone to physio, but doing the exercises they prescribed just aggravated the problem. I’d never been to a Myotherapist before, but had seen a bit on YouTube and thought I’d give it a go, nothing to lose. In the first session Jason identified tight quads and got to work, also giving me some homework to do. After four sessions he said I didn’t need any more, which was very honest, as some professionals try and keep you paying. I can now squat without pain, and have some tools for prehab and rehab. If I have issues in the future, Jason will be the first call I make.

really cares about her clients...

Huge thank you to Lauren for fitting in me in last minute for a treatment. Battling a few niggles with increased training load, I had some dry needling and cupping in the session which decreased pain and overall felt much better easing in to the week. Lauren is professional, super friendly and really cares about her clients.

She knows her stuff...

I’ve had a few treatments with Lauren now and she’s amazing! I’m a former Olympic Swimmer and have a hip and shoulder injury I’ve been dealing with. She knows her stuff and is the best acupuncturist I’ve been to, as she explains the issue and how to treat it and also how to manage it/ prevent it for future. I also now go for facial acupuncture as she offers a natural alternative to Botox. Massively reduced my forehead wrinkles after the first session! So cool and can’t wait to see my results after more. Highly recommend, she is my new go- to for nearly ANY issue! 😆👏🏻
