‘After experiencing some quite serious pain in my upper legs which prevented me from running, I approached John via email for some support. He suggested a course of remote sessions. I wasn’t sure how it would work without the usual hands on treatment but I was pleasantly surprised. John quickly diagnosed a piriformis injury and worked through a series of massages and stretches to help. This was followed up by an email describing the stretches which really helped fine tune the techniques on my own. I’m pleased to report Following a further couple of sessions that my running is back on track and the injury feels around 95% healed. Many thanks to John and the fire & earth team for their support’.
"Thank you so much, I can move! Just got home and can't believe how I'm feeling, you've given me hope and strength that I can get better. Once again thank you."
“For many months I have suffered extreme pain in my back, neck and shoulder; this included a tingling sensation down my left arm continuing into my fingers. The effects of the discomfort and pain had a negative impact on my life but more so prevented me from sleeping. I decided to seek the advice of a sports massage therapist, I was informed that Fire & Earth had an excellent reputation so decided to make an appointment.
Upon my first appointment with Jordan, he very quickly pinpointed the problem and explained his suggested course of action. Jordan also researched my problem further and recommended exercises that I could do to assist with the recovery plan. I am about half way through the treatment plan and I am already feeling the benefit. I have found the treatment to be delivered in a professional, friendly and effective way, I would thoroughly recommend Jordan at Fire & Earth. When the treatment is complete I have already made the decision to continue on-going maintenance treatment”

Feedback From Lucy On Our Nutrition Plan
"Being a 50+ female with various health issues, I decided to pay Amy in Places Gym, Hinckley a visit to see if she could 'sort out' my long termaches and pains in my back and shoulders. She took concise notes and asked lots of questions on my first visit to ensure that she was clear as to my medical history and what I needed. I was a bit nervous about how much it might hurt but she constantly checked to make sure I was okay with the pressure used and she explained everything to me.
All those strange sensations of years of tension and knots slowly yielding was miraculous! I thought there was no hope for me and I was 'stuck' with the issues I had. I have had 5 half hour sessions now and Amy has transformed me & my back! I no longer have the problems I started with (a lifetime of tension and knotted muscles). I will continue to visit her as I never want to regress to where I started. She is a true professional and I am grateful that I walked through that door! I have no hesitation and highly recommend Amy Sharp at Fire & Earth."
"As a Runner & Triathlete I am used to picking up niggles and minor injuries which Fire & Earth have always helped me overcome, however after qualifying to represent Great Britain in Spain competing in the Age Groups Duathlon World Championships I acquired a hip flexor problem which was causing restricted range of movement and extreme pain and threatened my chances of attending the Championships. I booked an appointment with Carys at the Quadrant and after a 60 min manipulation of the affected area I felt much freer in the hip but quite sore. I performed some basic stretches she gave me to do that evening and the following day I was able to complete my local 5k parkrun which I thought I would not be able to do. 36 hours after the massage and continuing the stretches I had very little pain and almost normal range of movement. I believe that I would have had to pull out of the Championships if it had not been for this treatment and subsequent treatments & advice. I went on to finish 25th in the World Championships."
"For years I have suffered with tension in my shoulders and numbness down my left side causing sleepless nights and obvious health worries. My GP didn't take my concerns seriously, so I came to see Tanya. She quickly identified my condition and worked out a regular treatment plan to manage the pain, release trapped nerves and treat muscle stress. An amazingly, talented and knowledgeable expert in her field."
"Regular massages at Fire & Earth have really helped my overall health and ensured that I can do my physically demanding job pain free. When I have unfortunately been injured, remedial treatment from John has aided and helped speed up my recovery. Friendly and flexibservice ensures I am never disappointed with the treatment I receive. I cannot recommend Fire & Earth highly enough."
“Many thanks for booking me in at short notice, the professional manner was fantastic, her knowledge was first class. This morning I could not walk as the pain was unbearable, I had one hour and I am ready to run the half marathon in the morning! I will definitely be singing your praises everywhere I have a group on face book called nutters on the run with 1000 members who run I'm sure they will be paying you a visit as I will be for maintenance sessions. Thank you once again Cary's is a credit to your company.”
"I am a wheelchair bound paraplegic who enjoys doing regular exercise. To aid with my training and pain management my personal trainer suggested I speak to Fire & Earth. I did and with Tanya's help I haven't looked back. I now have regular massages twice a week which help me battle daily problems that could stop me from training. I therefore thoroughly recommend Tanya and Fire & Earth to anyone."
"John has done great work with my shoulder and has effectively solved an issue that reoccurred for over two years in the space of a couple of sessions. If you have been frustrated by injuries this year he is the man to go to! A visit to John will reduce the time it takes for you to get back on the pitch if injured and can improve performance beyond rehab. Thanks John for all your help."
