Abdominal Massage Testimonial at Bodyworks Clinic Marbella

Maya Abdominal Massage – what it feels like

I always think that it is really quite tough being a modern patient. We have SO many treatment options that it can be hard to figure out which one is right for us. We can (and do!) discuss all the options with you to make sure you are in the right place. But sometimes nothing beats knowing how it feels. Fortunately our lovely patients happily volunteer to give their stories…

Private Massage Treatment Room at Bodyworks Clinic Marbella

Private Air Conditioned Treatment Rooms – why they matter

It’s funny isn’t it the things you take for granted. Things that are so obvious to you that it never occurs to you that someone else might feel differently.

Physiotherapy non contact and private - MRT

No contact physiotherapy

The “new normal” starts here! And while many things are back to something like normal there are still many people who are wary about close contact with others, visiting medical centres or hospitals unless needed and wanting more privacy and space.

Pandemic . . . Poop?

No, this isn’t some new, obscure symptom of Covid-19 (or at least, that’s not where I’m going with this!). But a look at how lockdown, quarantine and our current life is affecting every part of our body – including our bowels. Life is different Right?
