TESTIMONIALS

My problem was lumbar disc prolapse. Emily has been a very good and encouraging physiotherapist by giving good advice and a well plan treatment to me. I was discharged after a good treatment by her as my back does not feel anymore symptom. (Ms Y.L Ong)

To me, Emily has healing hands. Upon on-point  assessment she started treatment on my badly sprained ankle (avulsion fracture). The treatment was focused and targeted. She helped me gain my confidence and normal walking speed in 3 physiotherapy sessions. I will not hesitate to recommend her highly professional expertise. (K.C. Tan)
