“5 years after having a C-section and twins… my back muscles started to cramp throughout the night disrupting my sleep and leaving me in pain for hours on end. I tried my usual, trusted sports massage over the period of a few months hoping that it would be resolved that way… but after 6 months of increasing pain I realised that that wasn’t enough. Luckily, my health insurance company put me in the way of Tom – and after a period of a few months of Tom’s physio regime which combined an exercise plan (to help strengthen my back and core muscles), small back manipulations and massage – I am now able to sleep again with only the occasional feeling of minor soreness and have the general feeling that I am 95% down the road to a full recovery. So, cheers Tom! Thanks for the good guidance!”
