Testimonials

[Life Effect Chiropractic] has really had a positive impact on my life and I’ve noticed such a difference with being able to get my life back on track. I am now able to walk the dog, play with the kids and enjoy life without my back holding me back. I would recommend the clinic to anyone who is considering getting assistance, awesome service in a local practice. Thank you! 

My health and movement has improved so much in the few months, it’s scary to think back to how restricted my movement was when I first went to visit them. The whole process from the very first appointment, the adjustments to progress appointments is so smooth and easy…The staff are all so lovely, welcoming and patient that I always look forward to my visits with them! 

[Because of Chiropractic care], I have been able to do activities without suffering so much pain. I have been able to do cross stitch and crochet (which I hadn’t been able to do for about 10 years). I feel more grounded in myself. I couldn’t have been more ‘unsure’ about seeking help, initially cancelling my first appointment, but with encouragement, kindness and professionalism I have no regrets, only thanks to the team for giving me an area of my life back!

Thank you for your calm, quiet, patient approach, which made an initially scary new experience a breeze. I have hobbled in and walked out tall! 

Because of Chiropractic care, I have better posture, much better sleep, much more able to move my joints including being able to turn my neck, and I am less stressed out! My friends and family say I am like a new person and much happier. I do not need as much help from my colleagues for the physical aspects of my job anymore. If I drop a pen I can actually bend to pick it up! My whole life has changed for the better. 

Life Effect are very welcoming and lovely people who put you at ease and it could change your life in a very positive way!
