What our customers are saying
I have been a patient at Bend + Mend since July 2004. Initially I came for treatment to my neck and upper back. However, when the pilates practice started in 2006, I was encouraged to try pilates as a way to self manage my pain. I have been an advocate of pilates ever since and try to participate in 2-3 classes a week. The pilates classes at Bend + Mend are personalised and therefore unlike any pilates classes I have been to at other fitness centres. At Bend + Mend the pilates instructors are the physiotherapists, so they have an intimate knowledge of my history and are able to create a program to specifically suit my needs. As a result of doing pilates, I now need only intermittent physiotherapy treatment. I am also much stronger and more fit than I have ever been before!- Wendy Gwyn
I would literally not be walking if it were not for the skills and professionalism of Fiona and Mark – two wonderful physios who I now count as my friends. After a nasty accident, two lots of surgeries and a few complications, I am now able to ski again and do most of the things that I once took for granted only thanks to the great care of the team at Bend and Mend. I can not praise them enough! Over the years, I have recommended Bend & Mend (& its predecessors) to a number of friends and work colleagues. No matter who has delivered the treatment, the response is always the same – one of total satisfaction. As to the supervised pilates sessions, these are guaranteed to put a smile on your face and you always come away feeling much better – good for the body & the soul.- Suzie Jones
My back first seized up in 2005 to the extent I was unable to function normally. I was informed by my then physiotherapist that I would not be able to run again and following a cortisone injection it was suggested I take up pilates. I commenced physiotherapy and pilates with Bend + Mend in 2006 and have not looked back. Under the expert tuition and guidance of the team at Bend + Mend I have successfully managed my back over the past five years and have been able to function and exercise freely. Last year, I developed a synovial cyst in my L4/L5 nerve which had to be surgically removed. I received wonderful support from the team while working through this issue and following the operation. Under their expert guidance and tuition I am again back to full strength and able to exercise as I please. I highly recommend the team at Bend + Mend and am extremely grateful to them for the quality of life I have been able to experience under their supervision.- Martin Shakinovsky
We moved over to Bend + Mend a few years ago and found them to be a total change from our last provider. Joanne and the team at Bend + Mend have always been helpful, accommodating and courteous in their service. Their fast turnaround for assessment results has helped grow our business and the scope of work we do with clients. Our clients have given us feedback about the professional nature of their staff and the quality of their facilities. I have no qualms in referring clients as well as friends onto Bend + Mend for any of their Physiotherapy or Pilates needs.- Richard Green, Executive Health Solutions
For over 5 years Bend + Mend has worked with DibbsBarker in providing our firm with specialist services in ergonomic workstation assessments, topical talks, and patient care. From the first moment of contact, the staff at Bend + Mend are professional, polite and quick to respond to our needs. Our staff have provided glowing feedback on the results of their workstation assessment and the care that the physiotherapists take when assessing their needs. Further to this, Bend + Mend have been able to provide our staff with valuable information on working safely and looking after your body through the topical talks they have presented. The extra services that Bend + Mend provide, including catering to your requirements for topical talks and providing workstation assessments for employees working from home, mark their quality of service above and beyond their competitors. I highly recommend Bend + Mend in providing your corporate and personal health needs.- Katrina Matthews, DibbsBarker
