I have been to Nikki for several years with several inter related problems. She listens and diagnoses the latest issue, explains what she is going to do and sets to. No time is wasted. She is v confident in her ultrasound and laser and I can see it has speeded up the process of getting better. I was decades slow in coming to see her so she has had an uphill struggle. My sciatic pain from back down to foot is hugely improved, all understandable and when it starts up I know how to tackle it. Local issues in feet and calves have been cleared up. We are onto a knee now! I like to understand the nuts and bolts and Nikki is more than happy to explain the mechanics on the body.

Last year for two months and more recently I received excellent advice and guidance from Nikki. She is an outstanding professional, knows her subject and has been most helpful clearing a long-term knee problem. The consulting room is well equipped, bright and light. Nikki is most encouraging but also advises on a valuable exercise regime which at she expects clients to work. This is a team effort on which we all need to work. I can thoroughly recommend the services of Nikki. I rate her guidance as outstanding.

I had chronic back pain due to scoliosis. Nicola treated the pain on a regular basis and devised a set of exercises for me. Her enthusiasm and her passion for her subject ensured I kept to the programme. She subsequently persuaded me to ask for an MRI scan at my GP where they discovered I had a benign tumour pressing on my spinal cord which led to surgery to remove it. So I have a great deal to thank her for.

I have seen various Physiotherapists, Chiropractors and Osteopaths in the course of having regular issues with my lower back. Nikki was able to get me back in full working order within a few sessions and has been helping me manage it since. Her treatments are highly effective and she gives you exercises, stretches and techniques to cope with and strengthen the problem areas in your own time. It's hard to quantify how important it is to be in safe hands and get your mobility back after it has been impaired. I cannot recommend more highly!

I don't normally write reviews but I don't think I'd be walking today without Nikki Jackson. A friend recommended her after I had a triple fracture of the tibia plateau in 2005 - such a bad injury that the major London teaching hospital that treated me wasn't sure I'd ever walk properly again. Now they send tricky cases to Nikki. Her treatment - and the exercise regime she devised for me and that I followed religiously - meant that I ended up walking like before (I even walked the Great Wall of China - not all of it, obviously!). Since then Nikki has treated me for every other injury or problem and I've recommended her to dozens of people who also swear by her (and sometimes at her, when the treatment is painful - although to her credit she always warns you!). She is nothing short of brilliant. What I particularly appreciate is that if she thinks she can't make you better she'll say so - or if she wants you to go and have an X-ray or scan to see if and how to treat you best. Nikki is a real find: I'll never stop thanking her.

Ms Jackson was recommended to me on coming to live in London in 2014 with a chronic back problem. She quickly diagnosed the problem (L5, S1), took an excellent history to explore its origins and proceeded with a series of treatments as well as recommended exercises. Once I was strong enough I was enabled to join her weekly 'Sports Injury Pilates Group' which continues to strengthen me enabling me to maintain good back and core strength without further treatment. That is until early October 2019 when, after a period of inactivity, I experienced another L5/S1 problem. She was quickly able to offer a relieving treatment in the course of which, as things were not progressing as expected, she diagnosed coccydynia and has been treating me with ultrasound and laser. At each stage Ms Jackson was completely professional and very open and clear about the diagnosis at each stage, about the treatment offered, about my role in exercising and living healthily and about the likely prognosis. Now almost 78, this has enabled me to continue leading an active, mostly pain free lifefor which I am extremely grateful. I had not thought this would be possible 6 years ago. In my opinion, she has outstanding skills at engaging her patients in their own healing process. She was pretty tough with me and has enabled me to recover and not 'give in' to my illness as I have been tempted to do. Overall an excellent practitioner!

I have was treated by Nikki having experienced chronic shoulder and elbow problems for many years which several other medical professionals had failed to resolve. Nikki diagnosed the root of the problem and was tenacious, determined and very supportive in helping me recover full and pain free mobility. Without Nikki's help, I would almost certainly not have been able to continue working in my current profession. I cannot recommend her highly enough
