Many thanks to Lucy for helping me through the latter stages of my pregnancy. After being handed crutches and told to stay off my feet to deal with my pelvic pain by staff at the NHS, I sought a different approach by way of Perfect Balance. She was able to assess and treat my symptoms by providing me with the knowledge of how my body came to be in that particular state and what could be done to help alleviate the pain. With targeted pregnancy massage and light exercises to undertake at home, I was walking with a lighter step after every visit. Post pregnancy I am eager to start the Pilates sessions to continue strengthening my body. Thank goodness for Perfect Balance!read more

There are very few musculoskeletal practitioners who have the knowledge, skills and ability to think deeply about each individual they treat. Stephen is one them. Highly recommended.

Came to visit Andrew with my daughter after hearing how great he was with children, my daughter had been suffering with torticollis since 5 weeks of age and after seeing numerous consultants at different clinics and private hospitals, and not getting anywhere we decided to try an osteopath…I’m so glad we did. My daughter is just turning one and she hasn’t had any seizures or head tilts for 6 months now, we had 3 treatments with Andrew and that was the best thing we’ve ever done and if Aaliyah develops any problems in the future then our trust is only with Andrew at Perfect Balance from now on. 100% would recommend and certainly worth our travel.read more

I had been suffering extreme facial & nose pain for up to 10 times per day lasting for 10-15 minutes per ‘attack’. After a visit to my GP, an MRI scan and self-referral to a Neurospecialist, I was diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia. I was prescribed a strong drug (Pregabal) which I never actually took due to the horrendous side effects listed. Next I tried a special diet for a month but it produced no significant change so I became disheartened and desperate. I found Perfect Balance quite by chance after a web site search on K Laser and decided to write to them. The response was rapid and professional which immediately filled me with hope. After just 20 minutes with Stephen I felt he was looking at my symptoms from a completely fresh point of view and rapidly came to the conclusion that I had been misdiagnosed and the problem was actually due to intense jaw & neck stiffness over a number of years. This resulted in TN-type symptoms due to pressure on the nerve but could be solved without drugs or any invasive treatment. Stephen has been able to relieve some of the pain after just 2 sessions and is confident I will be fully cured soon. He has a gentle and understanding manner and seems genuinely determined to find the best solution in the shortest possible time. He is also good at giving self-help remedies for people who live abroad. I would thoroughly recommend giving Perfect Balance a visit for any form of pain that seems to never go away.read more

I visited Stephen Makinde just over a year ago with an IT band issue and within one session he identified the problem exactly. I then had a follow up visit with Podiatrist Daniel to organise some custom insoles. Since then the problem disappeared and a year on I have ran three marathons with accompanied training with no re-occurrences. Based on my experience I would say the level of service at Perfect Balance is excellent and what differentiates it from others is the very high level of competence and professionalism.read more
