Valerie Fry

I can’t say enough about the professionalism and through care both Millie and Julia have given me. They each have asked all of the right questions, with Julia correctly diagnosing where two other Physios and trainers have failed me. They each have also followed up with me between sessions.
I’m very optimistic about my progress under their care. The facility is very nice, as is the woman’s loo. All around great experience!”

David Woodfield

I’ve had a few physios over the years & rarely found someone who I think ‘gets’ it. Laura is the exception – she’s been able to pinpoint and explain my injuries eerily well from day 1! I’d go out of my way to be treated by her if needed.”

Donal Moran

“Excellent service and attention to individual needs and requirements from the team at Purus, Mark Hokan in particular. Very knowledgeable and has helped me stay injury free and on track during heavy training segments for a number of marathons now. Highly recommended.”
