I’ve got me back!

We love it when our patients tell us that Hands-on Health has changed their lives. 

This is Theresa’s story:

I moved down to Devon last July having retired, but my health was poor, and I have fibromyalgia. I couldn’t move my neck and shoulder and had to twist when driving. The pain had also impacted on my sleep and sitting. I wanted to focus on putting my health back on track, improve my mental wellbeing and start looking after myself after years of looking after others.

I’m absolutely thrilled that I found Hands-on Health – Albie has produced miracles! I started off seeing him for massage once a week, and then later once a fortnight. My neck and shoulder are now pain-free and I can move fully. I love driving and he’s made that part of my life so much more enjoyable. Now he is working on my lower back and hips that have given me pain since I can’t remember when – a half-hour treatment once a week. I think I’m getting to the end of this journey to recovery now, and Albie has given me my life back. That sounds dramatic, I know, but I can bend, and lift, and walk and sleep – and that’s enabled me to have a much more positive outlook on life.

Hands-on Health also offers yoga classes, and I felt very comfortable, with Albie’s encouragement, to try them. Now I’m doing a couple of sessions a week, and I can do things I never thought I’d be able to do in my life – I’ve now got so much flexibility it’s unbelievable!

Stopping work was very difficult, but now I can see my health is improving, and there is light at the end of the tunnel – every time I go I’m getting better and I put it all down to the professionalism, skill, thoughtfulness and support from Albie and the facilities at Hands-on Health. I’ve got me back!
