Testimonial for Pinpoint Physiotherapy

Amy’s advice after my first pregnancy continued to help me for years afterwards; I am pregnant again and this time I have virtually no back pain – I attribute this physical wellbeing to Amy’s guidance from years ago. I would highly recommend Amy for treatment.
