Excellent acupuncture and pressure treatment. Started going when pregnant as had bad back pain. Pain came back from carrying a child around but was soon sorted.

Dr Li treated my frozen shoulder and I felt the difference after just a couple of sessions. It has completely healed and he has now started acupuncture on my knees to help the long standing pain of arthritis. I have had 2 sessions and noticed a huge differerence already the pain has eased and the movement is a lot better. He is very knowledgeable, puts you at ease and will give you advice on your condition. I would highly recommend him.

Performance Therapy and Rehabilitation

Unit 4, Leonsway Tollgate Dr, Stafford ST16 3HS, UK – 07837 032484

Tim offered his usual warm and friendly approach in my session for an uncomfortable and restrictive shoulder/neck complaint recently. Tim sets high standards for himself in terms of professionalism and he used his precise understanding and skill not only in tackling my difficulty but also in creating a convivial and relaxed environment for our work. I really appreciated this, as attending a therapy session raised some apprehensions which were soon put at ease. Huge thanks again for a quality service Tim!

I decided to go and see Tim for rehab as I had noticed that I was struggling with certain movements both in the gym and my day to day activities. This rehab has been a real eye opener, I’ve always felt I was strong but after listening to Tim and following his instruction I can see where I have been going wrong and, more importantly, Tim has given me the tools and knowledge to correct my weak areas. I feel so grateful and cannot recommend Tim enough. Brilliant
