The below review was entered on Celtic Osteopathy testimonial page. Lisa & Louise wanted to share the review with the general Public... read more Mike Davies (Morriston April 2016) I have been having a problem with my shoulder for the last 8 to 10 months. Restricted movement, even something as simple as trying to tuck my shirt in was a nightmare. Even trying to sleep i couldn't lie on my shoulder it was so uncomfortable. Lisa at all times was the consummate professional, explaining what has gone wrong and making sure that every manipulation was explained before the action was performed, so i was fully aware of what was being done and why. Also remember that this is a two way process. And if Lisa does give you exercise homework,make sure you listen and take her advice, as she is saying it for the benefit of your health. I would have no hesitation in using Celtic Osteopathic Services in the future, but not too soon i hope :) CRAIG fb (Baglan moors) April 2016 …..Highly recommended and professional, was suffering lower leg pain due to a lot of road running, after two appointments with louise and having treatment there’s been a 75% improvement whilst running and my recovery after a run has drastically improved ⭐️ Brian April (Pyle Bridgend) April 2016 I have had a bad back for about 20 years ,I had a operation because my disc and a bit if the disc jammed my siatic nerve . I could hardly walk 2 weeks ago but after having acupuncture last week the pain started to diminish ,I had it again today and its a lot better,not pain free yet but I think after another session i will be right .thanks louse. Angela (Port Talbot ) 4/4/2016 FB.... Thank you for today! For the first time since experiencing problems, I actually felt listened to and relieved. Lisa explained things to me in detail and made me feel at ease and didn't fob me off. Looking forward to my next session Liz (Swansea) January 2016 FB.....Lisa has started treating me for my various aches and pains. What a difference she has made! She has a wealth of knowledge and is giving me excellent advice on how to improve my well-being. "I'm 15 years old and have recently had some pains in my back from playing rugby. I have been going to Celtic Osteopath for the past month or so and have been given fantastic treatment and a variety of exercises to help alleviate the pain. The whole process was pain free and has really helped my back pain go away. I have learned a lot about the way my body should be working and I have really enjoyed the whole experience. I would definitely recommend." Daniel (Port Talbot, South Wales) Feb 2016 “I have seen many physios in work about my shin splints and have never been able to pinpoint the root of the problem. Thanks to Lisa I have learned that it is muscles in my lower legs and not actually my shins. Now I have acupuncture when I feel is needed and this completely relieves any pains or niggles I have. Making my Job in the Army a whole lot easier. Professional and friendly, Highly recommended only wish we had osteopaths like this in work.” Elliott (Birchgrove Swansea) 11/2/2016 “After an afternoon session with Lisa I found myself feeling extremely ‘goodish’ and will definitely be going back for more” John (Swansea) 4/2/2016
