“I have been treated by Franco since 2003 where he provided Sports Physiotherapy to me and more recently he has been treating me as an Osteopath at Natural Health Chiropractic in Hampstead. Franco has a great ability to get to the source of the problem and treat the issue quickly, whilst managing to get to the root cause of the problem by suggesting changes to routines and exercise to complement the treatment. Franco has a healing, warm and approachable personality and puts his clients immediately at ease and is one the most professional and motivated Sports Physiotherapist/Osteopath I know.”

- Thanks, Stuart Bennett
