Scar Work Testimorial from Denise Platts
I had some myofacial release therapy on my mastectomy scar and scar tissue where I
had a lymph node clearance under my arm. After 2 years of healing this area was
uncomfortably tight and never improved with many daily excercises. The NHS does not
provide this type of therapy, so when I researched for therapists in Plymouth, I
contacted Adelia. The treatment was amazing and I am so much more comfortable now. I
would highly recommend Adelia for this therapy. Thank you so much.

Sports Injury Testimonial from Louise Hambley
I have been meaning to write this for some time now, but somehow a mention
in the comments book does not do my situation enough justice!
I was the victim of a nasty car accident in May 2010 in which I sustained a
bad whiplash and lot of what was though~ to be soft tissue and ligament injury
in my lower back.
For weeks and months the pain in my back gradually became worse and
worse. I was referred for 2 sessions of Physiotherapy by my GP which
unfortunately did nothing to assist. My back pain became so bad and
aggravated that I started to suffer with chronic sciatica which radiated from the
base of my back down my left leg and into my foot. It was a mix of pain,
tingling sensations and for a prolonged period of time a complete loss of
feeling in my left foot and toes.
After a suggestion from a family friend I sought the help of an Osteopath who
over a number of sessions across a 12 month period, did improve my
condition. However unfortunately the treatment reached a point where I was
told that unfortunately no more could be done for me and my present state
might be “as good as it get’s”.
I was starting to despair of the situation as prior to the car accident I was a
very keen gym-goer and runner, and my ability to do these things had been
completely taken away from me. I was very upset, a little bit depressed and
starting to gain a little bit of weight as I was no longer getting the calorie burn I
was used to!!!
That was when I met Adelia. We got talking and I mentioned my ongoing
back problems. Adelia asked whether I had ever tried massage. If I am
honest it hadn’t crossed my mind as it did not seem a “severe” enough
treatment that I was sure I needed if my back was going to be fixed (I thought
of massage as a nice relaxing treat, not a solution to a back injury). After
making Adelia promise not to make my condition worse (I was petrified of
hurting myself further), I thought why not as I was prepared to give anything a
go if there was a possibility of making me feel better.
Treatment commenced!!! If I once thought that massage was only a
pleasurable treatment I was swiftly proved wrong!!! Having never
experienced sports/injury massage before this was a real eye opener for me –
literally!!! I started to have weekly treatments with Adelia, then moved these
to fortnightly, three weekly and so on. It is now 2 years on and I am now
maintaining 6 weekly treatments with Adelia. Although as I mentioned above,
I found the treatment quite painful initially, this subsided the more regularly I
was undergoing treatments as my injuries slowly improved. Remember – no
pai.n, no gai.n I..”.
I can honestly say the difference Adelia has made is amazing. I am now back
to road running 4 miles at a time (building the distance up little and often) and
using the gym/swimming pool 5 times a week again. I am still not 100%
recovered, but have made some fab progress and am hoping this will
continue to be the case on an ongoing basis with the assistance of Adelia’s
magic hands – and elbows (ouch!!!).
I highly recommend injury massage with Adelia as a treatment for nasty
whiplashes and injuries and am now a re1aladvocate for it, recommending it to
anyone who will stop and listen to me!!
Adelia, I have said it before and I will continue to say it: thank you for all that
you have done and continue to do for me. You will be stuck with me as a
regular customer for a long time to come!
