Thank you so much Belinda for alleviating my ongoing pain in my elbow that kept me awake at night. Restricting me from playing all the sports I love. Your professionlism and endless knowledge of the human body and mind reassured me that my body would heal. Well it did thank you again so much. We need people like you around to give us confidence back in our bodies.
I have had Carpal Tunnel for over a year and the next stage the Doctor told me was surgery. I was reluctant to go for surgery so I decided to look for an alternative. Lucky I found Belinda she had been through the same pain and condition. She said she would be able to get me better within a matter of weeks. How right she was the pain the numbness etc etc etc simply went she healed me without an operation. She is a miracle worker and I highly recommend her.
I came to Belinda fed up and down about my condition. It had taken over my life the pain and discomfort and I simply could not handle it any longer. The Drs said I should simply live with it and it may go. After 4 sessions with Belinda it had gone. I had been given a label that was incorrect – Belinda said it would go and it did. Thanks Belinda you are a star.
I had been suffering from shoulder and neck pain for over 5 years when I came to Belinda. Working as a GP I had pretty much exhausted all the conventional treatments, and I felt this was a problem I would have no control over. On meeting Belinda I was impressed at her thoroughness in trying to understand my concerns.
Her first treatment was not at all what I expected as she took great care in tailoring it to my needs. She gave me information to take home, as well as useful advice on trying to adapt my lifestyle. Since my first treatment I have been able to take back control over the pain and also appreciate to listen to my body more.
I still attend for regular treatments and I always enjoy hearing about the complexities about the human body. I have recommended her treatments to many people, who all have found benefit after seeing her. Thank you Belinda for the wonderful treatments that you do.
‘I have been suffering with neck and shoulder pain for over twenty years. I kept saying to myself this pain will pass and it would for a week or two then it would come back with a vengeance – like a red hot poker burning right into my muscle. My arm began to go numb and had constant pins and needles for what seemed like weeks…I lost feeling in my fingers and part of my hand. The GP sent me for physio and gave me some strong pain killers. The physio helped me get feeling back in my fingers and hand but I was still left with the pain. I was on very strong pain killers for over a year (8 a day) that was until I had my treatments from Belinda. I am now successfully pain killer free and most importantly PAIN FREE!!! Definitely a miracle! How frustrating! there was no need for me to suffer in silence for all those years.’
‘I have suffered all my life with muscle pain and I did not know what it was like to be pain free! I was convinced I had Fibromyalgia. Before Belinda started to massage me on a regular basis I had previously attended physiotherapy over a 6 month period – this helped a little and I was simply told to do some stretching and join a Pilates class.
My first 3 sessions with Belinda felt like ‘hell’ and I even thought what am I doing but by the 4th session I experience pain free for the first time ever! Now if my pain returns for any reason then Belinda soon addresses any problems. I believe EVERYONE would benefit from her treatments!
In February 2012 I tore 3 ligaments in my ankle, resulting in an operation in September 2013. Before the injury I was a keen runner. However since the injury I have suffered with pain to the ankle and also to the heel on the opposite foot, affecting my ability to run like I use to. A family member suggested I sought treatment from Belinda and I couldn’t be happier. Belinda was extremely professional and knowledgeable regarding all the treatments I received. My pain has reduced massively and I am enjoying running again. I would recommend this treatment to anyone suffering with muscle pain!
Having suffered from migraine headaches for a long time I went to see Belinda. I was using strong medication to manage the bouts of migraine and I still had a few episodes that were debilitating to say the least. I often had to take to my bed or a dark room and sleep. After 1 session with Belinda WOW what an amazing difference. I can say that hand on my heart not 1 single migraine!!! Gone. We are now over 3 months on and I feel great. I have reduced the medication and I have not had a single migraine. The odd headache but they just ease. Before they could have escalated in a full migraine. Thanks to Belinda and her amazing trigger point therapy I feel amazing! The treatment is fantastic and I would recommend every migraine sufferer to give it a go.
I can honestly say that I have never felt this good. I am a 58 year old with a job that sees me sat down driving for long periods of time. My hobby/passion outside of work is bowling.
I have suffered on and off for a few years with my back, It could go at anytime. In the past a simple task such as putting on my socks could cause my back to go. It would go into spasms and I would struggle to walk. I could not stand straight. At the worst point I was on strong painkillers with time off work. Wow after 3 sessions not a single twinge. My posture is so much improved and my bowling stance has improved also. Along with my scores I am pain free.
A huge thank you to Belinda for everything. The treatment is amazing and works. 8 months on and I feel fantastic. I still have treatments just to keep things flexible but not as often as in the beginning.
Just a short note to say a Huge Thank You for the wonderful treatments I received from you and some feedback. I felt a release in my neck after the 2nd massage which was great as I’ve had many different therapies over the years including Physiotherapy but to no avail!
My wife had been suffering from severe pain in her neck and shoulders, brought on by many years of marking English homework so when I met Belinda I referred my wife to her. The service and outcome after just a few sessions with Belinda was amazing. My wife was and still is delighted with PainCareMassage, Belinda takes time to get to know her customers and explains what she does in great detail. She gave my wife exercises to do, which have kept the pain at bay since the sessions finished. This shows that Belinda is all about her customers and not about getting them back for more and more treatments.
I would like to thank Belinda from Paincaremassage, for her expert treatment of my shoulder. I was in a lot of pain and unable to raise my arm. Belinda was great, her hot stones massage and trigger point therapy treatment really worked well. I am now able to raise my arm and the pain in my shoulder has gone. What I liked about Belinda was the time she took to talk with me, she didnt assume what was wrong, she asked lots of questions and listened. I found the whole experience very relaxing and I would highly recommend Belinda, to all who need her treatments.
‘Following a RTC my muscles had gradually seized up over the years due to arthritis developing in my joints causing poor mobility. Belinda has released the muscles and I am now in less pain, more balanced and my mobility is greatly improved. ‘
‘During my sessions I have felt an improvement in my overall well being. I had an ache in my left knee and in my left groin. Both cleared up immediately after treatment. I am currently receiving treatment for a scar which is ongoing’.
I have been suffering with a severe break to my right humerous (July 2014) I was in so much pain I didnt know where to turn. I was having physio to try and regain movement but pain was worse. Once the fracture had healed the pain was still there due to damageD soft tissue. Belinda was recommended to me. She treated me with massage and manipulation and I began to improve almost immediately. Although it has taken some time I am now relatively pain free and I have regained almost full movement of my shoulder. A massive thank you to Belinda and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone suffering with pain.
I am a 51 year old male and have always considered myself to be physically fit and healthy, my journey started about eight years ago.
I had been a keen runner, entering 5 and 10k road races then building to the Great North Run, I was feeling great. The Great North Run went well, I hadn’t felt this fit and strong since I was a teenager I enjoyed the challenge so the next logical step was to go for a full marathon, but this is when things changed.
I noticed some discomfort in my right foot, I was still running 15 miles a week so I reduced my running to see if this helped. It didn’t so I went to my GP and physiotherapy was offered, this was painful and ineffective.
Things started to get progressively worse with widespread pain, I returned to the GP. Blood tests all came back clear, in fact my inflammatory markers were very low. At this point the possibility of Fibromyalgia was mentioned and/or Chronic Widespread Pain disorder. I was prescribed medication and some exercises. I was now on Celocoxib, Omeprazole, Paracetomol and Vitamin D3.
I then began experiencing massive dips in energy levels and trouble sleeping and was prescribed Amitriptyline. This helped with the sleeping but the loss of energy and the pain were still debilitating.
I was recommended a therapist specialising in pain relief, I contacted Belinda Clair. After the first consultation lasting approximately 1 hour Belinda said she would be able to help. I embarked on a series of massage sessions working on the most painful areas, to my surprise after the first session I actually felt less pain and the stiffness was much better.
Finally something that HELPED so we continued with the massage sessions for several weeks. Belinda then started introducing me to the idea of SIRPA and recommended that I read Georgie Oldfield’s book – Chronic Pain, Your Road to Recovery. After reading this book and talking to Belinda I started to get the idea that my pain may be as much about my psychological frame of mind. I am cynical by nature but I opened up my mind to the possibility.
It’s been about four months since my last visit to Belinda and I can honestly say things have improved. I can now run for several miles without too much of a problem, my energy is much improved and I feel about 70% better than before I started my journey. Importantly I now take NO medication, I can go several weeks with no need for pain relief and when I do, it’s just Paracetamol.
My journey is not over but now there is hope and using the SIRPA method has helped me and will continue to do so.
I would like to finish by saying thank you to Belinda who has opened my mind to new possibilities. For anyone struggling with chronic pain, what have you got to lose? Open your minds and give it a go.
