It won’t be any surprise to anyone to know that I am a lady of certain age who thinks she can treat her body with contempt, like she did when she was younger. Well it was a shock to me!!

Over a period of months last year I found that my Achilles’s tendons were becoming very painful and I couldn’t work out why. Getting out of bed in the morning was painful as it took a awhile for the stiffness to wear off so that I could start the day.

I eventually asked James if he could help….having put if off as long as possible.

James went through a process of assessment on my Achilles’ and also assessment of my flexibility and strength of my muscles, as well as massage. Therapy and stretches to get more mobile. Within a few weeks things were better but James didn’t leave it at that…he was prepared to tell me off!!

Harsh but necessary…if I don’t do the exercises he has given me it is likely that the problem will come back. In general I need to do more exercises. I can’t disagree…so I have been walking more, eating less and doing more in the garden…not difficult is it?

James is very knowledgeable and he delivers the unpalatable truth in a way that is easy to swallow. I would recommend him to anyone who knows that they should be doing something about their aches and pains before it too late!!

Jason , the words have captured the essence of what happens to people with dementia and how we must remember them as they were. Thanks you so much for doing this and involving BRACE . I hope lots of people download it!

Mandy provides an excellent service, bringing a wide range of samples to your home at a convenient time so that you can choose a carpet in the place where it is to be fitted. Her knowledge about all the different carpets and flooring is invaluable, helping you to pick the right carpet for the area. As a busy business owner I didn't have time to go round all the different suppliers - the personal service that Rivendell offers is therefore cost and time saving - I wouldn't go to any other supplier.
