"I have been to PT Health in Berwick a few times for a couple different reasons, the friendly and knowledgeable staff make me feel comfort and ease every time I go. Everyone that I have had the pleasure of meeting has made me feel like I am cared about, and not just "another client'. Truly a pleasure. Would and have recommended pt Health to others."
"The physiotherapist here is definitely the best physio I've ever seen. She worked with me and helped me heal, and didn't just use her fancy machines. The staff are all friendly and when you walk in you are greeted with a warm wooden interior that helps you relax! Definitely coming back at least for a massage if I don't injure myself again! Fingers crossed!"
