Some great feedback from our 2017 Pelvic Floor Talk:
"I'm pregnant with my second baby and found the evening to be extremely informative in terms of what I can do to strengthen my pelvic floor during pregnancy and what exercises I should look to continue post-partum, as well as key information about the bladder. Claire and Paulette were brilliant at explaining anatomy, what we can expect at certain points in our lives and why we don't need to just put up with being uncomfortable. Everyone should go to a session - I can already think of a few friends who would benefit. The food was delicious too, especially the homemade protein balls and smoothies."

Hear what a recent client has to day of our sports physio services at APPI Hampstead:

"....[after seeing another provider and] feeling not a great deal wiser to my foot issue apart from being referred to someone else at their practice. This didn't give me much confidence, which is why I spoke with Daniel at HTC. 
Today you were so much more thorough, detailed and informative; especially with the fantastically fast follow up video & exercise program this evening. The video certainly explains a lot to do with my running issues.  I must say that I'm more than satisfied and confident in your analysis and help with my issue, so thank you."
