Sports Massage"I've always loved magic but never really believed in it!
Until Louise, after only one session, took away the neck and shoulder pain I had suffered from for more than 2 years! I can now stand upright without having to support one or other arm to relieve the pain and that is no small matter.
At our first meeting, after just a few minutes chatting in her consulting room I knew I was in good care - not just good hands. Louise has a real interest in the well-being of her clients and is not simply interested in a 'quick fix'."

MLD"I cannot begin to thank Jennie enough. I have had Lymphedema for some time and was getting nowhere with doctors. I researched MLD and Jennies name came up so I gave it a shot. I was a little nervous at first but im so glad I did. Jennie makes you feel comfortable from the minute you arrive she is lovely. I recommend anybody to come and try the range of services Jennie has to offer."
Acupuncture"Turned to Jenny for help with problem migraine. Jenny does a full history and she tailored treatment to my specific needs/problem. Results were positive following the very first session and each subsequent session.
Jenny is very professional but, at the same time, very friendly. She has helped with the migraine but the positive effect to my calmness and well being has been so helpful."
Acupuncture"After numerous therapies on a shoulder problem with no results, a few sessions with Jennie Chew later and she had pin pointed the problem, and was cured in a very relaxed environment. Many thanks Jennie Chew"
Osteopathy"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help.
You have always been professional, helpful and your knowledge and techniques are fantastic. After every session I notice a big difference in the way my back feels, plus the easy after care exercises you suggested really helped as well. Something I really found helpful was when I didn't understand something; you explained it in a way that could be easily understood without a load of jargon.
I will be honest, the cost factor worried me at the start but after the 1st and 2nd session, it"
Sports Massage"Louise kills me kindly and diverts me from pain. She was on time and very considerate. While attending physically to my body, she also showed an interest in me personally. I came to her with a specific complaint but she was happy to work on other areas of my body that were causing problems as well."
Sports Massage"I was managing a painful tennis elbow complaint which increasingly restricted my work. I sought the advice of Louise at The Body Matters when my arm was at it's most painful and swollen. Louise listened attentively to my explanations and explored in more detail, the nature of my work, posture etc to build a clear picture before advising deep massage. Admittedly, this was painful initially but I had complete confidence in Louise's professionalism and determination to improve my condition. The swelling & inflammation subsided within just one treatment and did not return. Louise also outlined how to exercise and stretch to improve it and prevent further inflammation. My second visit made this previously painful condition so much more manageable. I wouldn't hesitate to seek Louise's advice and treatment for any condition which could improve so dramatically without the need for medication"

Sports Massage"As a working actor and performer, I regularly have Sports Massages and other massage therapies to treat aches and injuries to keep my body at peak condition. Louise at The Body Matters was able to skillfully identify and treat my injury, and teach me exercises and techniques to help prevent reoccurance. Louise is friendly, reassuring and professional, and I definitely recommend her treatments."

Acupuncture"I really felt like Jennie listened and understood my problems before beginning my treatment. Everything was well explained and the treatment was painless. Overall a fabulous experience which has really helped my migraine. I would thoroughly recommend her"
Massage"I cannot praise Louise enough for her expert help in quickly undoing the knots that I had accumulated over many years.
She is sympathetic, kind and very genuine in her approach to listening to your problems and is then able to use her expertise to manipulate the offending muscles into reform. I look forward to my now regular visits and always leave the treatment room far more relaxed and happy than when I entered. Her approach to her treatments is as professional as it is relaxed and she has a very calming way about her. I would thoroughly recommend following wholeheartedly the knowledgeable advice she gives."
Acupuncture"I am absolutely delighted with the results of my facial acupuncture. Fantastic!"
Acupuncture"Jennie has been treating me for about 3 months and has 99% cured my lower back problems and I am confident in that she could cure anything. She offers a professional and friendly relaxing clinic."
Hypnotherapy"I chose Louise as I felt comfortable with her and I very much liked (and needed) her positivity regarding the outcome of my treatment. She was always sympathetic and totally professional. Throughout all my sessions I was listened to and offered encouragement and ideas.
I felt the amount of sessions I had were the correct and necessary amount and there was no feeling whatsoever that I was being asked to carry on beyond a point when it was no longer necessary. With Louise's assistance I have achieved the outcome I wanted and now feel much happier, it was money well spent! I would have no hesitation in recommending Louise (and have already done so) and would not hesitate to return should the need arise."
Acupuncture"Very professional, eased pain and felt relaxed and 100% better!"
Acupuncture"Very professional caring lady therapist, lovely calm service and clean surroundings."
Osteopathy"Having taken the challenge of running the London Marathon I began to suffer a few injuries and was recommended to make an appointment with Matthew. Matthew understood the training program I was following with little explanation and pin pointed specific regions of my body where I was in pain treating them with a mixture massage, stretching and acupuncture. A program of stretches/exercises were given to me to prevent further injury. Matthew was always very professional, knowledgeable and also genuinely interested in my wellbeing. Without his treatments and advice I doubt that I would have made it to the start line of the race let alone complete the course"
Massage"Louise thank you for looking after me. It was one of the best massages I've ever had. Magic hands and lovely to meet you."

Food Sensitivity Testing"When I first came to see Melanie, my stomach problems were really quite bad. I really didn’t know if anyone could help me. After more than a year of problems and several visits to the doctors I was at the end of my tether. Melanie recommended a test which found two types of bad bacteria and a yeast problem. I would definitely recommend Melanie. She has helped me realise there was a problem and I was not imagining my symptoms."
M Blewitt, Basildon
Acupuncture"I would recommend Jennie, she has given me a wonderful service. I feel years younger and have improved confidence"
Sports Massage"First Class Massage! Once you've discovered The Body Matters and experienced a superb massage with Louise you wonder how you ever coped before! You leave the haven of peace and tranquillity feeling liberated from aches and pains and with a sense that you're ready to go back into the world with extra energy and determination. Try it once and you'll be addicted forever!"
Chris (from London)
Hypnotherapy"You were incredibly helpful because you allowed me to work things out for myself by making me feel relaxed and able to speak about things that I probably wouldn’t have spoken to friends of family about. I would recommend you because of your very kind, professional and friendly service; the way you listen and talk things through and how you understand what it is that someone is looking to achieve is fantastic. You most definitely helped me to become the person I have wanted to be for a long time. I am much more relaxed and made changes in my life to ensure that this carried on. You also helped me to build my confidence and as you know, I am now with the girl of my dreams."
