“I have been under Bryce’s care for a number of years and he is amazing! He has improved my overall health as well as rehabilitating a number of my injuries. He is both friendly and professional, his advice is invaluable and I highly recommend both biokinetics and Bryce.”
“I had a frozen shoulder with limited mobility, really don’t know why. I find physio painful and stressful. By contrast I enjoyed working with Bryce. He worked with me, was very patient but firm and the exercises I did with him mean it’s now strong again.”
