MD: "Daniel has been great with sports massage and acupuncture for my torn calf muscle which is, after 3 weeks, back up to running strength. His advice on stretching and training plans has been invaluable as without it I'm sure I would have overdone things too quickly. It's also been very useful that Daniel has appointments on the weekend. I'll be back if I need a top up or further treatment!"
RC: "I was very impressed with Daniel. I had a hip replacement just before Xmas and they tell you physio is really important so I went looking for private physio sessions. He was very thorough and gave me some great exercises to do which really made a difference. I would definitely recommend him and would use him again."
Daniel is very professional and knowledgeable, also very approachable and helpful. I went to see Daniel with a long standing shoulder problem, the treatments and the exercises he gave really helped. I also turn up to some appointments with new injuries from various sports, and Daniel is always happy to help and advise, and sometimes will end up treating the new injury too.
GG: "Following a car accident, I was looking for a physiotherapist who was based locally in Watford. I decided to see Daniel due to the positive reviews online. I have been under his care for the past month and he has been very patient, listened to my pain/progress and treated me accordingly. He also gradually introduced and demonstrated exercises for me. The fact he also does acupuncture has been of great help for my muscle tightness and pain relief. I would highly recommend his professional service."
LH: "I found Daniel very professional and caring. I would not hesitate to use his physiotherapy sessions in the future. Thank you Daniel."
AG: "I went to Daniel to look at my neck after whiplash. I spoke with him on the phone first and then booked an appointment with him. At the consultation, he assessed my neck and then showed me so many exercises I could do. He was so kind and patient and knowledgeable I really felt at ease after seeing him and the stress of the situation had been relieved. The exercises really did the trick and my neck felt so much better and I am very glad that I went to his physio in the end. Really recommend anyone in Watford area to go here. Thank you Daniel!"

NA: "I was in very serious pains before I met Daniel. He was patient enough to understand my pains and he gave me a deep sports massage. After the first appointment, I felt a lot better and lighter. I even stopped the use of pain relief gel on my body. I have since booked more massages and I’ll definitely recommend you to try it out. A trial will convince you! Thanks Daniel!"
