Client Feedback

  • positive review  As a beginner to Pilates, I joined Abi’s beginners class, followed by a core confidence class which really helped me to understand the basics. Since then I regularly attend the mixed abilities class and have noticed an improvement in my strength, confidence and technique. Abi’s classes are really supportive; with different progressions offered for each exercise so you can do what you, and your body, is comfortable with! I always finish a class with a clearer head and feeling more energised.

    positive review  I attended Abi’s Pilates class it was the first time I’d done any exercise in many many years!! Abi makes it really enjoyable, easy to follow, and is very encouraging. There’s a relaxed, atmosphere that puts you at ease straight away. If you’re thinking about it take the plunge and do it…

    positive review  Thank you again for my sports massage. I love my running and after a long car journey last week my back started to flare up. I started to research into a sports massage. Luckily I found Optimal Health very local to me and I messaged Abi a few questions. With a quick response I managed to book an appointment the next day. Abi is lovely/friendly and the sports massage was perfect not to rough and not to soft etc. Premises were immaculate and relaxing and I will definitely return. I’ve also messaged my fellow running friend Abi details 🙂 thanks again 🙂

  • positive review  I highly recommend Abi, she is very skilled and knowledgeable. I first visited for a sports massage and wondered why it took me so long to go and see her! She always manages to get the spots that stretches and rollers can't. Thank you Abi x

    positive review  I would highly recommend Abi. Visited last week for the first time and can already feel the benefits. Abi was very friendly and explained everything to me, the areas she was going to work on and the benefits I would feel. Clean studio and very professional.

    positive review  I’m very much a novice to Pilates, but would highly recommend Abi’s class. I’ve been doing the virtual gentle flow class on zoom for some weeks now. She’s an excellent teacher and explains everything with clarity and in great detail. I find it works really well doing the class in the comfort of my own home, especially in these trying times where attending a venue isn’t so easy. Abi gets 10/10 from me!

    positive review  I found OH therapy by googling to locate sports massage therapists in my local area , as I was suffering from sore and immobilised muscles due to my job, and recent lack of exercise. From the moment I communicated with Abi, the owner , I was impressed with her knowledge and professionalism. She is very effective in researching personal health prior to treatment . Her therapy room was was well set up, clean and professional. Her massages have been very effective in controlling my symptoms and I also joined her Pilates classes which have helped me. Abi is very friendly, welcoming and calm, I would not hesitate in recommending anyone to her first-class services.

  • positive review  Abi has been a vital part of my training and recovery process for the past few months. She's sorted so many niggles and issues that left me unable to train, and kept me functioning through two national comps in under six weeks. She's a superstar!

    positive review  I’d recommend Abi’s classes to anyone! I suffer from lower back pain and the classes have really helped me build strength and stability in my lower back. All abilities are catered for and I find it a challenging workout but also relaxing at the end of a day at work

    positive review  I’ve had sports massages in various places before but Abi is by far the best I’ve had. Her prices are really reasonable which makes it affordable to have regular treatments which really helps with my running. Would highly recommend, can’t wait for my next one 🙌🏻

    positive review  Would highly recommend. Great massage, helping all my problem areas and just generally loosening off my tight muscles from CrossFit . It’s not always easy to find someone strong enough to give the right amount of pressure. LOVE that there is a loyalty card and how passionate she is. Looking forward to the next one

  • positive review  Abi provides a high level of quality in various different treatments. I’ve had sports massage and cupping therapy and always feel great afterwards! I’d highly recommend Abi as she is keen to develop her skills, knowledge and qualifications in the field, which is the mark of a true professional.

    positive review  I’d really recommend seeing Abi for either general muscle maintenance or a particular niggle. I have seen her for both a sports massage and cupping therapy and it has really eased my lower back pain, especially the cupping therapy. Treatments have been gentle but firm when needed and I have been in a lot less discomfort since our session. Thanks Abi!
