Hugo is a very skilled osteopath. I had a frozen shoulder that I had been battling with for over a year, with various treatments from the NHS and it was still getting progressively worse. I saw Hugo early this year, around March. After about 10 sessions, I had 85% of movement back in my shoulder, I had resumed work, the constant chronic pain, that was my normal, had stopped. And when I saw the NHS consultant on my next follow up, he said to me "if any of my patients, after surgery, had the movement in their shoulder that you do, I'd be happy." And with that he discharged me. Hugo has given me my work life back. And now about 3 1/2 months later, my shoulder has continued to heal. With the recommended at home exercises that Hugo give, I now have about 98% of movement back in my shoulder. I have resumed my life. Thanks HugoEugenia Shaw – Beautician- July 2016
