Testimonials

What our clients say…

A wonderful experience from start to finish. You feel really relaxed from the moment you arrive, as The Wells Clinic is a tranquil place in itself. Cathy’s massage is both relaxing and beneficial as she combines her therapeutic skills plus her obvious knowledge of how the body works while still making it a lovely experience. I also found her self-help suggestions very beneficial and I would thoroughly recommend Cathy and the Wells Clinic.

Kerry, photographer

Cathy is truly amazing — hers is the best hot stone massage I have ever had. She has so much knowledge and she teaches you how to maintain that good feeling you have at the end of a session. I can highly recommend the Wells Clinic.

Cristina, image stylist and co-founder of No Place Like Holm

The quality of Cathy’s massage is second to none and I have had several others to compare with.  Regular massage has also reduced stress levels and brought a general sense of well being, and I have always felt respected in terms of privacy and confidentiality.  I would not hesitate to recommend this highly skilled and professional practitioner.

Sue, head teacher

Cathy helped me recover from whiplash, restoring back movement and helping me return to work quickly. I’m sure I would still be suffering if it weren’t for Cathy — she knows everything about the body and is amazing at what she does.

Claire, customer developer

Cathy provides a very personal, tailored approach. I never feel rushed during the session, unlike other practices where you are in and out far too hurriedly. The treatment itself is incredibly relaxing, which helps the overall results, and Cathy always follows up with a summary email that includes further advice. The benefits are fantastic value for money too!

Justin, software developer

During a hot stone taster session, Cathy noticed that I was in some discomfort from a large stomach scar and asked if I would be interested in a course of myofascial massage. The tension from the scar and its surrounding area — something my consultant had failed to relieve — was minimised in just four sessions and Cathy gave me the belief that I could get back to a more normal lifestyle.

Her ability to reach the deep source of pain without too much discomfort is incredible. I would highly recommend her to anyone — my only regret is not having found her years ago!

Cheryl, fundraising manager

Cathy combines professional confidence, drawing on a wide range of approaches, with an engaging, personal and down-to-earth presence. I find it easy to relax and allow her healing and intuition to work its magic.

Gina, international consultant, coach and trainer

My job can be quite stressful and I used to suffer headaches, back and shoulder pain. My back and shoulders are now much better and I rarely get a headache. A massage with Cathy is not just the massage, it is the full experience — the time before analysing the problem, the advice on how to get better in day-to-day life, and a lovely treatment room where you immediately feel at ease and relaxed.

Carmen, financial partner

Cathy at The Wells Clinic delivers a wonderful mix of treatment and support afterwards that means you start to recover quickly. I highly recommend The Wells Clinic — feel better and live!

Gillian, bookkeeper

I turned awkwardly at work and was unable to move my neck and right side of my shoulder and arm.  The pain was awful, but I saw Cathy and through a combination of hot stone therapy and myofascial release, the improvement was immediate. I now also have a good understanding of the stretches, exercises and care I need to take to ensure that I get back to optimum health. Cathy has a genuine gift for helping people heal and I would recommend her to anyone who has muscle or other health problems.

Harkamal, primary school teacher

I was suffering RSI in my elbow from using a laptop daily, and over just a few weeks, Cathy relieved the pain and advised me on simple exercises to do between treatments. Cathy’s extensive knowledge of the muscle structure is very impressive and I’m always amazed at how quickly she detects the source of the pain. Cathy also treated my son — then aged 10 — after a skateboard injury, helping him relax with distraction techniques and gentle massage. I highly The Wells Clinic for any muscle/joint injury or just for some pampering in the lovely, cosy treatment room.

Katy, medical science liaison

I had a problem with my shoulder caused by arthritis for over ten years before having a shoulder joint replacement, and if it had not been for Cathy’s expertise, it would have been unusable for much of that time. Since having the joint replacement, the Wells Clinic has continued to help me with the ongoing recovery process. Cathy’s sympathetic yet professional approach helps put you at ease and trust in her judgment. I can’t recommend Cathy and The Wells Clinic highly enough.

Barbara, catering manager

The Wells Clinic offers a cosy, relaxed atmosphere from the moment you step through the door. Cathy has a wealth of experience and knowledge that enables her to quickly identify the areas that need her attention, and her hot stone massage is to die for! She doesn’t stop the moment you walk out of her clinic — she emails you details of exercises so that you can continue to treat your aches and pains at home. When I recommend Cathy I say she has magic hands, and as soon as you’ve had a treatment you’ll know what I mean!

Gill, childcare provider

I was very impressed with the level of detail that Cathy used to understand my aches and pains and sort out the problem. My husband now also uses Cathy for arm and back problems and we have no hesitation in recommending Cathy at The Wells Clinic.

Therese, authorised distributor for Utilities Warehouse

I have used the Wells Clinic on a number of occasions and have always found Cathy’s treatment extremely effective. Her in-depth knowledge and the care she takes when advising how to manage the pain with ongoing exercises have, I am sure, greatly assisted in speeding up my recovery. I cannot recommend The Wells Clinic highly enough.

Claire, housewife

The combination of blissful hot stone massage with deep therapeutic work on specific muscles works wonders and I am able to carry on the good work at home by following Cathy’s expert guidance on stretching and/or exercising. I am far more mobile than I have been for some time, with much less pain. I can wholeheartedly recommend Cathy and The Wells Clinic!

Lizzie, Reiki master and NLP practitioner

The Wells Clinic is remarkable. Cathy is highly knowledgeable and has an outstanding ability to understand and interpret the body. No two sessions are the same since she instinctively works with you and on what your body is crying out for on that particular day. Cathy is also very welcoming and friendly — we always have a laugh and I look forward to my sessions immensely. Since visiting The Wells Clinic, my neck and shoulders have dramatically improved and my quads are much happier. This is not only thanks to the wonderful sessions but Cathy’s continued support in between. I cannot recommend Cathy and the Wells Clinic highly enough.

Reanne, trade account manager

The Wells Clinic has helped with a variety of problems from day-to-day aches and pains to whiplash. The expertise, therapy and exercises for me to do in my own time allowed me to recover quickly from the whiplash and get back in to my physically demanding job. I would highly recommend Cathy for her personal approach to the client, depth of knowledge and successful results. I am now much more aware of my body, and regularly book myself in for a massage.

Sports injury feedback…

Quite simply, I wouldn’t recommend anyone else! Cathy knows what she’s doing and gets results. I first consulted her for some shoulder and neck issues which were resolved in just three sessions. Then I began training for a marathon and I have never been so grateful that I booked some pre- and post-race treatments.

Not only were the niggles in my hip, calves and quads kept at bay after just one session before the race, but that treatment also made the session after the race more beneficial. It was as if my muscles knew what to do to help themselves and recover! Cathy is now part of my training and recovery regime, and I see her before niggles become issues.

Sharon, marketing executive

I was a runner for more than 30 years before I began training for triathlon and started getting unfamiliar injuries. Cathy identified what was happening and devised a treatment programme involving clinic-based therapy and home-based exercises. The injuries healed and by visiting Cathy every few weeks and sticking with the exercise plan, I can now compete regularly. I can’t recommend Cathy highly enough for her unique mix of professional skill, intuition, empathy, and solid commitment to working with her clients to get the right results.

Eugenie, public relations consultant

I had a number of aches and pains sustained from running, and consulted Cathy for advice and treatment. She goes out of her way to explain everything and as a result I have not only improved physically but also feel more knowledgeable about my issues and confident in helping myself with future training and fitness. Cathy is very professional and she has a warm and caring approach. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for help with more serious injuries.
