    Sam A
  • “The session was fantastic and extremely helpful. The information and the way in which it was delivered was great and nice and easy to process and digest.”
    Anthony G
  • “I had some muscles problems and booked an assessment with Luca. He did a thorough job, recommended deep tissue massage for some of my issues, and over 3 more sessions he cured my immediate shoulder problem. At my first full session with him he suggested that i go to my GP and have a blood test as he thought my symptoms might indicate Polymyalgia. He was right, and his ability to see the bigger picture led to prompt diagnosis and treatment. Very impressive.”
    C.R. Retired
  • “Luca is a warm, kind person with a professional manner. He was very reassuring when I was worried about my health and he took time to explain my condition to me which made me feel more at ease. Both the acupuncture and exercises he gave me were extremely effective and I now feel 100 times better. I highly recommend him”
    J.G. Teacher, Runner
  • “I met Luca around 2016 as I could barely move due to pain in my lower spine. After our initial consultation Luca suggested spinal manipulation, mobilisation and medical acupuncture. I’ve had acupuncture many times over the years and genuinely seen the benefit of it. His treatment has been really effective!
    While surfing in 2017 I had a fractured vertebrae. Luca realised how quickly I needed and wanted to get back to my feet and he went well beyond the call of duty while taking care of me. Thanks to all his hard work and patience, I was back to my daily activities within 3 months”
    D.B. Director
  • “I was off-running for previous injury. I did the 6 weeks “Get Me Running Path”and I found it brilliant. Through the video analysis I understood the cause of my injury, how to improve my running technique and what specific training to prevent injuries. With Luca’s professionalism and skills I managed to go back running safe and strong and still enjoy it! Amazing”
    P.C.
  • “I have seen Luca because of shin splints during running. He performed a video analysis of my running, identified altered patterns and helped me correcting my running technique. He also taught me how to warm up properly and gave me strengthening exercises that have helped me improving my performance and preventing further injuries!. Highly recommended”
    E.H.
  • ”I suffered from lower calf pain when training for the Edinburgh marathon. Not only was my problem resolved efficiently but I learned how to prevent further injuries and become stronger. The video analysis coupled with specific strength training and good practical advice i.e. dynamic warm up has improved my running and my enjoyment of running. Luca is an excellent physio and professional, highly recommended…”

  • “… My aim was to start running but avoid the usual mistakes and risks (injuries like back, knees, hips).Luca’s help has been invaluable and fantastic. Central to this programme is the running video analysis he performs on a regular basis, as well as designing training plans in addition to running which support the overall aim of running in a healthy way. Overall, I would absolutely recommend Luca as a physio and running coach. I really enjoyed working with him and look forward to continuing to do so."
