Testimonial for Holywell Healthcare    

                                                                                                                                                                         Dr Helen Burrell is a long distance runner and member of Redhill Road Runners and has been a regular client since 2005. 

She says ….
“I have been receiving regular soft tissue therapy from John Freeman at Holywell Health Care since 2005.      Over the years I have seen a range of health care professionals and John is right up there with the best of them.
I think the fact that I am prepared to travel from Nottingham to Chesterfield on a regular basis says it all. My only reservation about recommending John is that it might make it more difficult for me to get an appointment with him!
As well as seeing John on a regular basis I have received advice regarding gait analysis and orthotics from Colin Papworth and I find the Holywell Health care reception staff extremely friendly, helpful and efficient.” 21.10.17
