“I have seen other physiotherapists before but she was the only one who examined the situation as a whole and helped me understand the reasons behind each symptom in order to improve my movement, flexibility etc..
I can honestly say that what I’ve learnt from her in such a short amount of time is incredible and would definitely recommend her to everybody else!” – Marta Benaglia
