“Nahor took care of me following a hamstring injury. He spotted the problem right away, and I have been feeling better after few sessions already. He helped me in defining my own exercise program that I could perform at home and at the swimming pool to integrate his treatment. Most importantly, he transmitted me the right attitude to deal with my injury, which is one of the thing I needed the most. Plus, he was always available to reply to all my questions, even on emails. I would highly recommend this clinic.” Ms G.B.
