Several months ago I was stricken with severe sciatica, strong pain killers were prescribed by my GP but they had unacceptable side effects. I contacted Skelian and Jamie quickly sorted out my problem, without further medication. During the course of my treatment, I found that Jamie's manipulations of my neck gave a certain amount of relief to the vertigo and muzziness “brain fog”, which I had been suffering from, for the past five years. I am thankful to Skelian and Jamie in particular for his caring approach to my ailments, he has an excellent bedside manner and he has given me beneficial advice to help with my long standing dizziness problems.

Very happy. Jamie was great - friendly and professional. I certainly felt that I was in good hands and could already feel the benefits after my first visit. After three sessions the pain has gone.

I highly recommend the Skelian Clinic. The lovely Aaron has cured my lower back pain in a matter of a few weeks so that I can now resume and enjoy my walks. Everyone at the clinic is very professional, kind and friendly. Thank you.

I walked in to the Skelian clinic at my wit's end - my neck and shoulders hurt from decades of poor posture due to computer work, my left forearm was tight and painful and I had been suffering with agonizing tennis elbow in my right arm which was waking me up every night. It felt like my entire upper body had seized up. From the moment I entered the clinic I felt a good vibe - Angela, the receptionist, made me feel relaxed and welcome and was just lovely to be around, she takes a genuine interest in every client and radiates warmth - and has a lovely singing voice to boot! Victoria, who I cannot thank enough, has worked miracles. After four treatments, using a combination of dry needle therapy, targeted deep tissue massage and spinal manipulation I feel like a different person. The pain has almost completely gone and I have a workable action plan on how to look after my joints. Victoria is empathic, exceptionally knowledgeable, witty and a great listener. She explains what she is doing in straightforward language and puts you at ease immediately. I can honestly say that I am blown away by the results, it is life changing to have that debilitating pain taken away. I wish I'd gone sooner. If you are suffering with neck, back or joint problems please just book an appointment online, you owe it to yourself.

I've been coming to Dani for regular Sports Massage appointments for nearly a year now, recently transitioning on to the Hot Stones massage. As someone who likes to regularly weight train these sessions have been invaluable to my recovery and have ensured that any aches, pains and knots are kept to their absolute minimum. I've recently moved over to the Hot Stones massage and highly recommend it, it's a great mixture of traditional sports massage techniques combined with the hot stones - this will be my go to massage moving forward. Dani is extremely welcoming, friendly and a pleasure to be around - I can't rate her highly enough!

Friendly, professional service. Tom has been fantastic at sorting out my neck and back issues, providing explanation before, during and after treatment as well as providing after care exercises I can do at home. I have been delighted with my treatment so far. Thank you!

Exercise Rehabilitation with a Sports Therapist

A tailored rehabilitation program is a key part of a Sports Therapist’s program to help get you back on track. One of the main reasons for a rehabilitation program is not only to help strengthen and improve mobility but to help improve your body’s ability to cope with the demands you want to put it through and intern help keep you feeling on top form. 

The initial phase of the rehab program will be to help return you to everyday activities with minimal to no pain. Once that initial goal has been achieved, the next phase is to try and build upon the base of strength and conditioning you have built. This phase is there to help improve your body’s function and hopefully help reduce the risk of further injuries in the future.
