Bodymotiv8

30A S Tay St, Dundee DD1 1PD, UK – 07983 567110

Booked in for a sports massage for a duff shoulder. Guy was great at getting me an appointment as soon as he could possibly could and in general he really new his stuff not had problems since, as the advice I was given for aftercare has worked great. But if I need to I will happily go back worth every penny.

I have used BodyMotiv8 for a number of years, for regular sports massage, targeted fitness programs, along with injury rehabilitation. Each time the service has been professional, and focused to my needs - I've lost count of the number of people I have referred. Highly recommended.

Pink Chiropractic Clinic

Ascot Drummond House, 10 Douglas St, Dundee DD1 5AJ, UK – 01592 201469

I had an accident 20years ago, thus have had various attempts to cure and ease my pain. I have had physiotherapists, osteopaths, acupuncture and a couple of other chiropractors, all helped to some extent but I was not pain free for very long. I tried Pink Chiropractic when it first opened in Bell Street Dundee and have been going since. I am now on a maintenance programme and I am pain free, able to go to the gym and feel healthier than I have for 20 years. The use of the Myo vision xray ( I think that is what it is called ) gave me great confidence. Dr.Mez Jones could clearly see the issues. I would fully recommend his practice to anyone.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I HAVE BEEN TO A CHIROPRACTOR SO I WAS A BIT UNSURE ABOUT WHO TO GO TO...PINK WAS RECOMMEND TO ME AND I AM SO GLAD I WENT. HE WAS EXCELLENT AND EXPLAINED EVERYTHING IN GREAT DETAIL AND MADE A GREAT DIFFERENCE TO MY SORE BACK I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRACTICE TO ANYONE WHO IS IN NEED OF A CHIROPRACTOR.
