I've now had 4 sports massages with Mat Pollard, all targeting different areas and issues which materialise through my marathon training and fitness coaching. I can't speak more highly of him...he is an absolute legend! I'm totally inspired by his knowledge and ability to work out where the routes of my problems come from each time and I'm loving learning so much more about the human body whilst he treats me! Thanks Mat!read more

Just one session with Aaron and I could move again after my back locked up and left me with very limited movement and serious pain. He also gave me some stretches to do at home and great aftercare advice. Thank you Aaron would definitely recommend!read more

I saw Lucy Georgiou regarding my knee swelling and pain. She was very thorough and understood my issues. Very informative and professional and I feel confident that she can help me back to recovery.

After many years of chronic back pain, and passing from one specialist to another, I was recommended to Stephen Makinde. I cannot praise him more highly ... He is very knowledgeable and a real professional ... He has helped me back to a more healthy and pain free life.
I've seen other members of the Perfect Balance team for other problems over the years. Each and every one of them is a dedicated professional, who take the time to establish the cause of the problem and work with the patient to aid recovery.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Perfect Balance Clinic team.read more

After having a biking accident, I was left in a neck collar for a while. However, the pain never really abated, and that was when I was put in touch with Perfect Balance Clinic. My impression of the set-up right from the start has only been exceptionally great, far exceeding any experience with other osteopaths. Initially, I saw Andrew, who was very understanding of the issues. He helped progress me massively - his whole aim was to get me better so that I wouldn't have to return to the clinic. When I hit a plateau, he did the professional thing of transferring me to Lucy Georgiou for a second opinion. I have been seeing Lucy ever since, and the ongoing difference she has made is unbelievable. She is always so ready to explain what is going on with my back and neck, so that I understand exactly what it is that she is treating. Lucy is always professional and personable. My whole experience here has been outstanding, and that is why I have recommended many of my friends and family.read more

Having been to various GPs, Consultants and Physio Therapists, the painin my neck and shoulder and lower back from an old injury never seemed to go away, The GPs prescribed more and more pain killers telling me I “just had to live with it”, and it was my age. Fast forward 10+ years and treatment from Stephen at Hatfield over those years the pain is fine, I am still able to play sports and keep reasonably healthy (even after a heart attack) and two year later CABG surgery , The pain comes back now and then but nothing like it used to be, and I can still live my life – Moves to various parts of the country and different Osteopaths had me driving from Scotland to Hatfield to receive treatment as only Stephen seem to get to the problem quickly and efficiently solved ( A bit over the top maybe) but living pain free is a great thing! I still have treatment at Hatfield having moved back into the area, and also have taken advice from Stephen which has helped me a great deal. A big thank you Stephen and the Team for your excellent service, care and attention keeping this 75 year old activeread more

I had my first personal training session with Phil, it was amazing! Phil really took the time to set realistic goals with me, talk through my diet plan, find out what exercises I enjoyed doing, what I wanted to learn to do and tailored the session to meet my individual needs. Phil was great, he ensured that I felt comfortable, whilst also encouraging me to push myself that little bit harder.
I will definitely be having more sessions with Phil!read more

I've seen Stephen Makinde at Hatfield, Fitness First and St Albans and his professionalism is flawless.

The whole outfit is hugely impressive and I am only too happy to recommend Perfect Balance to my patients. read more

I've been to the Hatfield Perfect Balance Clinic as I had pulled a muscle in my lower back and I also have had a long term shoulder problem. I have been getting treatment from Mat Pollard over the past few weeks. He's been absolutely brilliant, and has given me some great advice. I will certainly be recommending him and Perfect Balance Clinic to others. I definitely give Perfect Balance 5 stars, great value for money 🙂 read more

Following a motorcycle accident in Italy last June I suffered a broken ankle, was flown home and remained in cast for six weeks. As an avid gym goer, fitness enthusiast and workaholic, my concern was not about the accident but about getting back on my feet and not having any ongoing issues that would stop me doing what I love doing; you can imagine therefore my grief when I suffered complications when the cast was removed! I had no hesitation in calling Perfect Balance who quickly diagnosed the issue and worked closely with me, over a period of time, to get me back on track . . . . following each treatment I received I did exactly what I was told in the gym and haven’t looked back! Their personable, professional and extremely knowledgeable staff are second to none and I trust them implicitly with my well-being (and that of my family and friends to whom I have recommended their services over and over) which is why I haven’t and won’t go anywhere else. My thanks, on this occasion, go especially to Stephen and Ulla – my testament to them is that I’ve signed up to trek Iceland this year for charity; I wouldn’t be doing that with a dodgy ankle!

Using your Private Medical Insurance Policy
If you are planning to use private medical insurance (pmi), please contact your insurer as soon as possible and before your first Perfect Balance appointment to ensure you meet the terms of your policy.The procedures of insurance companies differ and some require the policyholder/patient to obtain a GP referral before they grant authorisation to commence treatment. Most private medical insurers cover osteopathy, physiotherapy and podiatry but other treatments, eg sports massage, pilates and rehab will not be covered. Please check the terms of your policy with your insurer.Naturally, if you are in pain you wish to be treated as quickly as possible and we wish to offer the earliest available appointment to start you on the road to recovery. However, please be aware that insurance authorisation can not necessarily be applied retrospectively. Please tell us when you book your first appointment that you intend to use pmi to claim for your treatment. In order to book your appointment with an appropriate practitioner, we need to know which insurance company it is.We need you to provide us with the following:
Name of insurance company
Policy or Membership number
Claim reference/Authorisation code for this course of treatment
Which part of the body (eg left shoulder, lower back, etc)
Number of sessions/budget authorised
Details of any Excess due
Some insurers do not cover the full fees for treatment. Once we have your authorisation details we can invoice at the fee agreed by Perfect Balance with your insurer. Until we receive the authorisation details we will invoice at our standard rates and you may be liable for the costs.We will send your invoices to your insurance company directly for payment once we have all the details. Your insurance company may inform us that the invoices are your liability, for example, due to excess, shortfall, benefit limit exceeded. In this case, please settle your account with Perfect Balance within 30 days of notice.Your practitioner may recommend an alternative treatment to speed your recovery and this may not be covered by the original authorisation. For instance, an osteopath may recommend you go on to see a physiotherapist or podiatrist or vice versa. Please check with your insurer and obtain a fresh authorisation if necessary.Sometimes it may be a simple matter of holiday cover by one practitioner for another; it is preferable for you to be treated by another practitioner recognised by your insurer so you can continue claiming. Please remind us to book you with an appropriately recognised practitioner.If you have any questions relating to your private medical insurance it is best to direct them to your insurance company in the first instance. We will do our best to assist you in the claim process.
Data Protection Policy
We take data protection seriously; please let us know of any changes to your personal data e.g. name, contact details, insurance company, person registered on account, this helps us ensure your records are kept accurate and up to date.
