Yvonne is THE best chiropractor I have attended….she was highly recommended by a friend & I can see why! I’ve been plagued with back pain for years and now I am pain-free!! Yvonne is so positive, well-informed & very clever in her holistic approach…an amazing practitioner.
What a game changer, Yvonne is an amazing Chiropractor. When I started with Yvonne I Was in agony with my back and feet after walking 500 meters, shopping was a nightmare and I put it all down to being overweight but how wrong was I. Within 3/4 sessions I was a completely different person, I am walking pain free 4/5 kilometres a day and have gone back spinning and enjoying a pain free life. My only regret is that I waited so long to make that first appointment.
I attended Tricia Murphy for prenatal physio including yoga and dry needling both of which I found hugely beneficial. Tricia recently treated me for a knee injury and wasted no time finding the cause of my pain and poor balance, providing an individual treatment plan to support my full recovery. Tricia is passionate, highly experienced, thorough and so kind. I always trust and value her professional opinion and insight.
I would highly recommend this physio clinic. I attended for a sports injury and was very happy with the treatment I received.
I have actually been a client of Yvonne’s for over 5 years. I had damaged my back through years of playing rugby and working as an industrial electrician. When I met her for the first time the level of care and professionalism shown were second to none. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my back.
During times of COVID -19, the team at Head 2 Toe seem to have maintained a very high standard and a clean work area. They also have all the barriers in place to mitigate the risk of the virus spreading, and as a patient, it felt like a safe area to be treated. Having had some issues with my back I decided to go and try to get it fixed or at least worked on, I was heading offshore working so I wanted to have it looked at in short notice which I really appreciated, and thank God I did the relief is fantastic, didn’t realise what my body had become used to living with. I Would highly recommend going to Head 2 Toe to anyone with any Pain as the team there really know what they are doing.
Fantastic chiropractor! I had suffered from severe back pain for years and could barely exercise. Within 3 visits to Yvonne I have been literally pain free since and am now a regular gym goer. Yvonne is extremely professional and talented at what she does. Head2toe chiropractic is a fantastic practice with a lovely clean relaxed atmosphere. Any time I have visited I have been seen on time which is fantastic. Highly recommend!!
Tricia is an amazing, talented and caring Physio. She is understanding and completely puts you at ease. Her pilates classes are great fun as well as effective for both beginners (like me) and pros. I would highly recommend!
I found Tricia to be absolutely amazing in both my prenatal and postnatal care. She really helped me with a number of complaints and always ensured that I felt comfortable during sessions and with the exercises she recommended. I would highly recommend her for her professionalism, knowledge and kindness.
The care and attention I received from Tricia Murphy was second to none. She was very thorough in her assessment to try and get to the route case of my back pain and through treatment and exercise put together a plan that left me pain free. I found her pilates classes excellent to build up my core strength and spinal mobility, which has also helped my back hugely.
I attended this clinic when I was heavily pregnant and was delighted with it. Yvonne was professional and made me feel very comfortable at all times. I felt great afterwards, loose and ache free. I highly recommend it.
