I can highly recommend Dan, during a single session he spent an entire hour working on my lower back pain and I made a full recovery within a fortnight. He’s diligent, empathetic and professional – a credit to Comfort Health.


Dan has treated me on a regular basis over the past few months and I would highly recommend his services to anybody due to his very effective treatment style, enthusiasm and perseverance to help his clients.
I responded well after only a few sessions after having pain and lack of mobility in my left hip, thigh and glute. Thanks to Dan’s proactive approach of varying exercises and responding quickly to changes in the painful areas I am so much more mobile now with significantly reduced pain. I look forward to further treatment!


After an efficient diagnoses of tension to two of my tendons in one foot, I’ve had three appointments with Dan and feel fully healed. Expert treatment and suggested weekly exercises have produced a very pleasing and quick recovery. Will recommend to anyone requiring treatment to joints or muscles.
