I'm in my late 30's and had to have a full hip replacement in January this year. I've had treatment at Bodybalance with Tessa from the 1st week. I can't thank her enough, I was back walking after 3 weeks and playing golf after 8 weeks. The treatment, exercise plans and Tessa's knowledge around my operation has been brilliant. I couldn't recommend Tessa or the set up at Bodybalance higher

I have seen a fair few physiotherapists in my time and I was so relieved to have been lucky enough to have been treated by Anna. She has been kind, patient, supportive, creative and so knowledgeable. Thank you Anna for getting me through my meniscal tear surgery in my knee and for all the advice moving forwards on how to continue to build and maintain strength for my osteoarthritis.
Thank you Anna for all your excellent help, getting me over my hip replacement.

I would like to take this opportunity to indicate that I was very impressed and pleased with Jessica Rider's approach to helping me recover from an injury. Jessica was always very professional during the period of treatment. I would recommend her services.

Shefali has worked wonders on my shoulder injury, providing treatment and giving me exercises which quickly reduced the pain. She was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, and I'd highly recommend her as a physiotherapist.

Thank you for your diagnosis and programme.
I cycled the Pyrenees and I’m sure those 8 days helped my calf strengthening and I picked up run training at the start of October with 2 minute run and 2 minute walk 5k’s and graduated through 3/1’s to my first full run this morning. The course there is quite good for me as you can choose to run 90% on the grass beside the paths.
I ran 24.34 so under 5 mins/km and i’m really pleased to be coming back at that pace.
Thank you for everything, i didn’t think I would run again when I first met you.
I had a torn meniscus and did physio with Willemijn over a 15mth period. She was encouraging, confidence-building and an expert physio through the ups and downs of recovery. I am now well healed and running 5ks again about 7mths after surgery.

I began seeing Anna when I injured my back in September and have continued to have appointments pre and post surgery. Anna is an exceptional physio and has put me in a significantly better place. Physically I have improved hugely and have got back to the majority of exercise and sports I did before. I have also gained the confidence to get back to a normal life which was a barrier to me post-surgery.
Willemijn steered me through first a total knee replacement followed quickly by a new hip. Most importantly she set goals so we could measure and celebrate progress, although she’s a kind and friendly person she made it clear that the exercises were to be done. “This is your job” she said at the start of the knee recovery. Never overly forceful but clear in her explanations and recommendations that without putting the work in I simply wouldn’t be able to regain normal function. Now 9 months after the knee and 5 from the hip I’d say thanks to her guidance, and a good surgeon, I’m pretty nearly 100%.

Even after I had finished my acupuncture I was still given excellent advice on how to build up my exercises week by week, I couldn’t have got to where I’m at now without him.
I would highly recommend Harry and if I ever have any further injuries I would have no hesitation in seeing him again.
Through their excellent care, I have always flown through my recover every time, their knowledge is second to none.
The Bodybalance team are fantastic so friendly and helpful. I can’t sing their praises enough.
I have used Body Balance for sports massage a few years now and always received great massages. My therapist Trina really understands the complexities of my condition and has provided great relief from various injuries and niggles. Having used other services I can assure you, Trina is very knowledgable and thorough and I highly recommend her service.
I would certainly recommend her to anyone requiring physiotherapy.
Having played sports all my life, I was lucky enough to get to the age of 63 without ever having suffered any back pain…..that was until January this year when I was told that my right sacroiliac joint had badly degenerated. I was in constant pain, hardly able to walk or carry out any normal daily activities.
Three consultants and two rounds of CT guided cortisone injections had done nothing when I was referred to Eric who was confident from Day 1 that while it would take some time, he would get me better!
Eric is without doubt an excellent therapist but also, in my opinion, a visionary. Constantly challenging the perceived knowledge about recovery periods, he pushed me beyond my comfort zone constantly giving me the confidence to do so.
Miraculously, I am now pain free and able again to play golf, go to Pilates and Yoga classes. Resuming some light jogging is also on the horizon.
Thank you Eric and all at Body Balance for giving me my life back. I promise never again to make fun of your Rugby team!
With best wishes for your continued success.
After extensive online research, I booked my post-surgical rehabilitation with Eric at the Hatfield clinic, then Mill Hill and finally Muswell hill when I moved to London. It was my second surgery in two years after I tore my ACL playing football. Recovery from my first surgery proved problematic and I ended up needing a second surgery to repair cartilage damage and debride scarring and synovitis. This surgery revealed a posterolateral corner injury and lax ACL graft, which could in turn have led to a third surgery to reconstruct both the ACL and posterolateral corner. So, a bit of a mixed picture for Eric to deal with!
Thankfully, the third surgery hasn’t proved necessary as my knee has finally settled. This is in no small part due to Eric’s expert physiotherapy (plus a lot of hard graft in the gym)! It wasn’t an easy journey, but whenever I had issues, Eric had a logical and thoughtful diagnosis and effective advice that proved spot on each time. He keeps up with current studies & research and has extensive experience of dealing with sports injuries. He’s also a really nice guy!
Now I am almost always pain-free and am no longer restricted by my knee – I am so grateful to Eric and would recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone!
I have been to various physios over the year and Jen is by far the best. Not only highly skilled, but also lovely to work with and hugely supportive when you’re apprehensive about returning to activities.
Jen has not only resolved my shoulder issues but has also addressed a long-standing patella injury of some twenty years with corrections to my posture and form, and a series of strengthening exercises for my hamstrings and glutes.
I will be recommending Jen to all of my friends and am delighted that I have finally found someone to help me achieve the best from my training.
I have every intention of going back to full contact sport and Eric is working hard with me to help me achieve that, whilst keeping me realistic with timeframes. I feel very confident with Bodybalance and I’m very pleased I found them. Aside from the staff being amazing, the complex is great too, having access to a gym facility during appointments is really useful.

Since starting work with Mike Ho, he very quickly worked out that I’m mechanical: give me a program of exercises, tell me the reps and sets and I will perform them daily, without fail; and things get better slowly.
Over the weeks and months the program got longer and harder, and more fun, and really made a big difference. They were really very effective.
When my overactive core muscles interfered with my breathing while swimming, Mike was in the pool working out what was wrong; and we have a plan in place which is already showing benefits.
The training enabled me to make the brave or foolhardy move to train the guys at Performance Hertfordshire. Mike did an excellent job of explaining my condition to the trainer, while convincing them that I was not some aged cripple. I’m 100% sure that I would not be doing deadlifts and RDL and the other challenging exercises, without the work done with Mike.
For the last couple of month, I have focused on minor problems with my shoulder; and it is definitely getting better.
Although the above is a really good story, and probably what you could expect from any of the physiotherapists at Bodybalance; it totally misses Mike’s core skills.
- He worked out exactly how to work with me, and that is not easy.
- He gave me programs which pushed me just enough, to get max benefit without the risk of going too far (unless I go overboard).
- He is professional at all times, while being friendly, relaxed and encouraging.
- He is always asking for feedback on the work and his performance.
- He is always asking for updates, so he can decide when then the next appointment is needed.
Mike is an excellent example of the value of being a client of Bodybalance”.

Nicki has been a star! Being an international skier, I live in France during the winter months, however she is still always only an email away to offer advice and rehab exercises wherever I am in the World.
The whole team have treated many World Class athletes and are very well connected with other medical professionals, which has made my injury needs a lot less stressful. Nicki has been able to make those all important ‘who you know’ phonecalls, leaving me to rest and know I am great hands … I dont know what I would have done with out her!”
From Emily Sarsfield, British No 1 Ski Cross Athlete
She went above and beyond her professional requirements, and put up with my constant moaning. It was also great that Nicki was really keen to liaise with my strength and conditioning coach, so that I was combining physio, rehab and also my strength and conditioning. Having both my physio and strength and conditioning on the same page meant I wasn’t get mixed advice – I was getting honest and structured plans.
Finally Nicki is extremely thorough in explaining the diagnose of my injury and explaining the steps she would be taking in order to get me back to full fitness. She was really motivating throughout my sessions and continued to be positive even when we had to go backwards in order to move forwards with my injury. I definitely owe her a lot and appreciate everything she has done for me.”
