I wasn't able to run for 7 months because of a hip injury. In spite of months of physio it just wasn't getting better; I was starting to worry it might be serious, and the lack of exercise was getting me down. A friend suggested Karen and after just one session I was able to run again, pain free. I've spent a month building up my distances and am almost back to my previous fitness. After all those months of pain I still can't quite believe I can run again! Karen is friendly, professional and really knows her stuff; as well as fixing my hip, she (unprompted) found and fixed a whole bunch of other minor problems that I'd learned to live with. Amazing!
