“I have seen Kathy several times, and she is the best physio I have been to. Friendly, upbeat, interested in getting to the bottom of the problem and following up. BodyMed is also a very convenient location for parking and the DART. Highly recommended.”

“I received excellent treatment for chronic, stubborn back and hip pain that other practitioners had been unable to successfully treat. Kathy takes a full biomechanical view of the problem, not just treating the symptom, but also the causes. Excellent value, too.”
