FeedbackimageLets see what Engel’s clients are saying?….

“I was lucky enough to meet Engel through my gym. I was suffering from RSI and had some terrible headaches & tension which bothered me daily and prevented me from doing any exercise. Engel fixed me and put me back together again. I had exercises to do at home to aid recovery between sessions. My headaches over time vanished, and now I’ve just completed my first half marathon within a year of treatment.” ….“Thank you again Engel. You’ve been nothing short of wonderful. You & Maria are the dream team!”   – Abi, Brixton.
