I’ve been seeing Maria for nearly a year now as a consequence of particularly lower back pain, which at times had become quite crippling. I’ve seen many therapists over the years, not always because something has been wrong but because of my belief that prevention is better than cure, and Maria is certainly one of the best practitioners I’ve had the pleasure to meet. She’s very knowledgeable in her fields; she’s an excellent communicator who has the art of putting you at ease, making the treatment not only good for your body but for your mind and spirit too! As a result of her treatment, my lower back has vastly improved, although my jaw is aching from all the laughter she puts me through (smile). As someone who has been working in the field of personal growth and well-being for over 30 years, I can honestly say that Maria is a first-class professional and I unreservedly recommend anyone who’s experiencing pain or discomfort or simply wants to keep the body whole and well to make the time to go and experience one of her many wonderful treatments.
