Having lost sleep through a bad back, I found the StoneHouse Clinic. I booked my first appointment for the next day and they started treatment immediately. After just a couple of visits my back became so much better, sleep became much easier. I teach and participate in sports to an international level, so I understand how important it is to maintain good health. I now go back each month just to keep my back in good shape and look after any injuries I pick up through training. Staff are friendly and it's a great time just to relax!
