    Amazing treatment! Caroline really helped me get through marathon training earlier this year and kept me pounding the pavements.

    I've been to a few sports therapists in my time, but I keep coming back to Caroline. She may be small but she packs a punch with my muscles.

    Caroline has a very kind and understanding personality. She is very knowledgeable and I learnt a lot about self care as well as how she can help me. As for the massage she is so good. I have had many appointments and will always return if the need arises.
