Leigh’s story

leigh200“I first came to see Edwina 5 years ago after a trip round South East Asia with a backpack that was probably just a bit too heavy (taking the kitchen sink not always the best option)! From then till now Edwina and the team have helped me through some amazing times in my life, 4 days lost in a kayak in the Swedish Archipelagos, then the time I decided to go running in the Sahara for fun, more recently I broke my ribs out training for the French Riviera Marathon.

My plan was simple, a slightly shortened training programme of 8 weeks then off to run 42k from Nice to Cannes, unfortunately I managed to trip while out training and break my ribs 2 weeks in! Edwina was my first port of call after the trip to the hospital, with some intense and painful sessions she managed to get my ribs moving and 6 weeks later I ran my first marathon in a time of 4hrs 28 which I loved so much I had the chance to run and totally enjoy the London marathon without any broken bones this time.

By the time you read this I will be either biking through Southern China or climbing Mt Kili, all of the great trips have been made possible by Edwina keeping me together with weekly or monthly adjustments. Every time I have an adjustment leave feeling a million dollars and I can’t say enough about how much the team have done for me, in my eyes maintenance is prevention and treatment should not be a one-off.”
