I suffered from severe arthritis in my hands. Gowri was so kind and caring. With her extensive knowledge of physiotherapy she provided me with a variety of exercises and treatment that gave me relief and improved the mobility in my hands. Her passion for physiotherapy and respect for patients is evident.

I look after an elderly gentleman who is receiving physiotherapy from Gowri. She has given us a lot of helpful advice and guidance with regards to his home exercise program to keep my client mobile. I am recommending Gowri to anyone who needs physiotherapy.
