'I can't believe the time has come to say goodbye! When I arrived in London in January, I was excited for a semester of travel, living in a new and exciting city, having a much needed change of pace and experiencing a break from the craziness of American University. I knew that while living in London, I would need to continue physiotherapy so as not to lose progress I'd made over the last three years. I could never have imagined that instead of simply maintaining my progress, I would become the healthiest I've ever been. Without your expertise, passion for your work, and continued encouragement, I would never have been able to travel to 18 countries, walk 35,000 steps a day around Budapest, Vienna, Prague, Brussels and Sevilla (just to name a few), hike half the length of Santorini, go on invigorating runs around London (while properly strengthening my core) and spend long nights out with friends. Six months ago, all of these things would have caused me too much pain to even consider doing, let alone do with a huge smile on my face! Being a 21-year-old, American, female University Student, I am always being told in one way or another to push through pain, both physical and emotional. You three taught me the importanceof listening to my body and you validated the pain I've been in for years, not to mention you've given me the skills, strength, and knowledge to overcome it. Thank you for absolutely everything, I am a happier and healthier person because of you all!'
'Thank you so much- my time with CiONE has changed my life- I am in a much happier and healthier place now. Long may it continue.'
Elite Youth Runner
'First off I would like to say a massive thank you for everything you have helped me with this year. Lat year I was in a place where I thought I would never be and at the bottom of my running journey. It was like everything had come to a grinding holt (literally) and there was no light in the end of the tunnel for miles to go. But out of the blue there came hope and that was you. You're not just the physio who works in CiONE your so much more, you have taught me it's not just the winning that counts it's the journey that comes with that which is the most important. This injury may have set me back two steps but it has made me able to take 3 steps forward and move on into a whole bigger journey. This whole journey has been a whirlwind for me but I'm proud to say I'm a stronger and more competitive athlete than ever and thats all down to you.'
Stoke City FC
‘Life changing. Without Tim I wouldn’t have the build I’ve got now or the core strength I’ve got now. I would have had a lot of problems in my day to day life as a footballer.’
Wife of a Parkinson's Sufferer
‘The nine months we have been coming here have been brilliant. I can see the difference. Neighbours say ‘I saw your husband running by!’
Aesthetics - Posture & Bunions
‘Many thanks again for helping me greatly improve my posture, inner core and shape. I am so glad I dared ask on that train journey if there was anything that could be done for bunions! You will be pleased to know I was back doing my exercises last night when I got back from Merseyside.’
Quality of Life
‘I came to see you in 2012 and have been very pleased with how it all worked out – the shoe inserts and all the postural training really helped in a number of ways and one particularly noticeable change has been that I don’t get lower back pain when standing for long periods – having had a number of problems with my SI joints over the years. As an example I’ve been helping my daughter with trade shows which means standing for the best part of 8 hours on three consecutive days and I know that would have caused real problems previously but I have had no problems at all. So when my son, Joe, was telling me yesterday that he had had back spasms and had been asked if there was any family history of SI problems I started to wonder if he might also benefit. It seems he has some foot pain as well.’
Personal Trainer & Mother
‘What is very important in pregnancy is to have a strong core. I don’t think I was lucky in not having any lower back pain in pregnancy at all; I think it’s because we worked on the core prior to me getting pregnant.’
‘It covers all angles, not just one specific thing. Not just interested in fixing one certain ailment but fixing the whole package, the whole structure.’
‘Just wanted to say a very big thank you to Jonathan and Tim for treating my initial foot injury to then advise me further and help me through exercise to support my whole body and ways to prevent the same injury happening again. They have been open and honest and I treated them like family. Thank you both for a life changing experience.‘
Addressing the Root Cause
‘After numerous visits to physiotherapists, osteopaths, sports masseurs and others I was recommended to try CiONE; and for the first time in 5 years I can properly walk down the stairs first thing in the morning. Jonathan Broom-Edwards has worked tirelessly to sort me out – I just wish I had heard of CiONE years ago. Many thanks – worth every penny.’
Posture & Sciatic Pain
‘I wanted to improve my posture as I felt this could be the underlying cause of my neck and shoulder aches and increasingly frequent, painful bouts of sciatica. I had Alexander technique sessions but this didn’t seem to make much difference. I came across Cione and booked an assessment.
I was very impressed with Tim’s knowledge, expertise and understanding and his explanations and this gave me the confidence to buy my tailor-made orthotics. This seemed like a big expense at the time but it has been worth every penny. The regular follow-up sessions (included in the price of the orthotics) with Tim and Jonathan showed me how to improve my posture, monitored my progress and taught me the core exercises which have all made a significant difference. I now walk and stand differently and love the feeling of walking more freely – a good walk is now an essential part of my day. Early on I had a few twinges of sciatica but a session with Tim soon sorted that out. I have now been free of sciatica for at least a year.
Tim and Jonathan have a relaxed yet purposeful style and are both hugely supportive – I have really enjoyed my sessions with them and I am so grateful for the difference they have made for me.
I’m delighted with my progress – and I’m still doing the daily core exercises! Much as I would like to see you two lovely guys, I just don’t need any input or support at the moment!’
