This has nothing to do with art, but for any of you who suffer from ME, chronic fatigue, post viral conditions or stress related problems I would like to recommend Dr. Francois Nieuwoudt in Truro. In 2010/11 I was taken rather ill, it is a long story, but it has taken two years to get back to my normal life and I know that without the incredible knowledge and guidance of Francois I still wouldn't be fit. Francois has the potential to really help people and I have experienced amazing results with myself and family. He can change your life. I just wanted to share this with you all and encourage you to share this with your circle of friends. It could change the life of somebody for the better. Meeting a doctor who can genuinely help is a gift. Thank you. John Dyer.

Cathedral Chiropractic Truro

unit 2, Bridge House, St Clement St, Truro TR1 1ER, UK – 01872 262988

I was lucky enough to receive treatment at Cathedral Chiropractic on the NHS for both my pregnancies. The service by all staff is always so friendly, positive and professional. During both pregnancies, I saw Tamson who made instant and very noticeable improvements to my back and shoulder areas. Not only does Tamson make you feel very relaxed and safe during treatment, but her knowledge and expertise helped me better understand how my body works... meaning hopefully I can manage my back and shoulder pain on a daily basis. I cannot recommend Tamson and the practice highly enough. Truly wonderful people and care. Thank you!

I cannot recommend cathedral chiropractic highly enough. Ive had a back problem for many years on and off, and had come to the conclusion that I would always have pain. Id convinced myself that because my pain was so bad now that something significant was wrong with me, maybe I should have that MRI maybe I would need that surgery. After having my very heavy Baby recently my back got worse, I couldn't lift him or carry him without severe pain. Without a shadow of doubt receiving this treatment was life changing for me. I went from experiencing pain all day everyday, affecting my sleep- my ability to care for my son and my ability to do my being totally pain free. I never thought this would be achievable, I was expecting to feel a bit better, but I am completely pain free, even when picking up my lump of a son. On another note Tamsin's care was impeccable, she was kind caring and professional. It is very evident how much she loves her job, it really shows, this passion also makes her truly amazing at her job. Sorry if this sounds very gushing - however she has given me the ability to lead a pain free life......priceless. I was seen very quickly, appointments were very frequent and the whole team were a pleasure to deal with. Thank you

Lander Dentistry

3 Upper Lemon Villas, Lemon Street, Truro TR1 2PD, UK – 01872 272777

I had spent a lot of time researching and visiting dental practices in the search for someone that could give me the teeth I had always wanted. I was hugely impressed from my first consultation with Mark, he was very informative, professional and friendly. I left having full confidence he could give me the smile I wanted and I was right! I am so happy with my results, the day after my braces were taken off a complete stranger came up to me to compliment me on my teeth- this would never have happened before! I only wish I had found Lander sooner. Thank you very much.

I had been having problems with my gums bleeding and thanks to the hygienist Rachel at Lander Dentist my teeth have been saved. She recommended that I go and see a gum specialist to undergo some specialised treatment. The treatment was carried out successfully and now I regularly see Rachel at Lander Dentist to ensure I am cleaning them properly. I can highly recommend the team here at the dentist and remain truly grateful to Rachel for being so proactive and managing to save my teeth.

Katherine was recommended by a good friend after listening to me complain about a long suffering knee problem. The issue with the knee has been ongoing for a number of years and I have had 4 operations over time. I visited Kathrine at her studio a number of times where she treated me using the Bowen technique and she was brilliant. My knee is the best its been in years and she also helped with my posture.
