“Jacquie has been working with me since 2013. The overall improvement in my posture and well being has been noticed and commented on by my friends and family. I developed Scoliosis during my teenage years, but I didn’t really suffer any pain until I was in my 30’s.
From then onwards, I was treated by Physiotherapists and Osteopaths on a regular basis. I’ve attended Pain Clinics, had accupuncture, worn a Tens Machine and been on various pain killers. Some treatments worked for varying lengths of time and others had little or no effect. Latterly I was seeing a Physiotherapist every 6 weeks and taking 5 Gabapentin tablets a day. I was in constant pain, it hurt getting in and out of the car, I couldn’t stand up straight from a sitting position and it was painful to sit down.

A chat with a neighbour about Pilates led me to Jacquie. In my first 4 months of lessons, I was standing taller and had better spinal flexibility.
I can now move freely every day. I recently got a gorgeous new Cockapoo puppy and I’m able enjoy long walks with her.
