Really appreciated the service received over past couple of years. Recently had great massage from Kathryn, easing out back and keeping these octogenarian legs up to scratch for my cycling. Highly recommended.
Professional service throughout - I broke my wrist playing football back in September and was recommended Shawe Physio by my health insurance for rehabilitation once my cast was removed. Following initial assessment by Kath and 6 follow up sessions, I am back to full fitness. The service is excellent with initial treatment and home exercises which were easy to maintain.
I would highly recommend Shawe Physio! Coming from a competitive CrossFit background we tend to put our bodies through a lot of strain, Michael at Shawe Physio has been a great addition in helping me keep any nagging injuries away and improve my overall recovery and performance.
Best place to go for physio. Highly recommend!!! I have been many times over the last few years.
I’ve been to Shawe Physio twice this year, for a knee injury and gait analysis – these guys are amazing, they give you advice and techniques which work! I recently ran the London Marathon and without Michael’s advice I would of really struggled with the knee pain, simply adjusting the way I was running made sure I got to the start line and finished! Would highly recommend for any runner and anyone thinking of starting up running to see these guys for advice and to get a gait analysis done with Ashley! Thank you both.
Knee Injury and Gait Analysis
Excellent service. Friendly and professional. Highly recommend Jack and colleagues.
Had a bad shoulder for over a year. A couple of weeks physio with Ashley and I have lots of movement now and less pain.
I have had 2 appointments here so far with Michael for lower leg pain caused from running. On both visits I have had detailed explanations on my injury and what I need to do moving forward to strengthen and get myself back out there running. Along with a few improvements on how I should be running. Staff are always polite and welcoming making visits pleasant.
Lower Leg Pain
This is my second visit to the clinic and I am extremely happy with the fantastic levels of service provided. Michael has provided me with a detailed explanation of my injuries along with a plan to attack the route cause of my pain and resolve the issue. Overall a 5 star experience!
I would highly recommend Michael from Shawe Physio, a very knowledgeable and thorough physiotherapist. I am a gas engineer and plumber by trade for ever getting myself into awkward positions daily and also being a very physical job. I have many sporting injuries from a life time of adrenalin sports I’ve perused. Having just finished my second appointment another booked in already. I highly recommend this practice.
Shawe Physio are a seriously talented bunch of professionals. After my injury and a 13 week rehabilitation programme, it’s as though it never happened. Huge thanks to Ashley for her patience and profound knowledge. Keep up the good work.
Knee and Hip Pain
Excellent service and very pleasant staff.
I took my sporty teenage daughter with back & knee problems to see Ashley. She was great with her and combined in house treatment with exercises at home which got her sorted within a few weeks. I would definitely recommend her.
Back and Knee Pain
I recently went to see Michael at Shawe Physio with a suspected touch of tennis elbow. After a very detailed review of the mobility in my arm Michael proceeded to massage the affected area before engaging in a round of periosteal pecking with an acupuncture needle. This isn't the happiest of experiences, to be honest, but Michael handled the whole thing brilliantly. Firstly by explaining what was happening and why, and secondly with a very calm approach and a good level of sympathy about how uncomfortable the necessary procedure was. Following that treatment some exercises were given to work through at home, with Michael checking that I could do them properly before I left and then I was set until the next visit. During the following session it was clear that Michael's treatment had worked wonders, and I was back to almost full mobility and much reduced pain. Michael's approach was super friendly, very professional but without that clinical coldness that you sometimes find with medical practitioners. The treatments were explained well and I knew what was going to happen and why before anything was applied. I would wholeheartedly refer anyone to Shawe Physio. I have been twice now, seeing Michael and one other practitioner, and both times was met with a high level of professionalism and expertise and a fast resolution of the problems I went in with. Totally awesome experience from start to finish! Thanks Michael
Excellent service. Appointments within a day. Recommended 6 people from Hoddesdon Tennis Club who have all been happy with their treatment.
Professional and very informative. Was dealt with quickly and was treated fantastically. Recommend them to anyone in need of help from a physio. Brilliant! Thank you
I have been to so many physiotherapists over the past decades and Michael is in a league of his own. His sensitive, thoughtful and intelligent manner shines through, and his passion, deep knowledge and genuine kindness is ever-present. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone. He is a gem.
Visiting Michaels clinic was such a delight! Everything is so fresh, clean and inviting! With his extreme knowledge he has managed to put together a plan for me, to work on the numerous of issues I have going on!! With being of short stature every part of my body works differently so trust me it is not easy! I am really looking forward to the results and finally seeing some change! Highly recommend him and his team
Have been seen by Michael for a few years now for one thing and another, have to say one of the best Physio’s I have used. Would highly recommend.
Lower Back Pain
Best sports massage I have ever had, my moto is, do it right or don't do it, they a have it right.
1 hour consultation for my husband who has been in excruciating pain in his back for two weeks. Ashley was amazing and so lovely. He is already feeling better this morning and will do the exercises religiously. Thank you so much Ashley, you're a star!
Calf niggle resolved on two visits - thank you Jack and the rest of the team.
I have had physiotherapy treatment from Michael, and at present receive personal training from him. I have been very impressed by Michael’s professionalism, assessment skills, knowledge, and range of treatment techniques at his disposal. As a personal trainer, unlike so many in the past, he seems to ‘get me’, understanding my limitations and goals, which has been very refreshing, he is a great motivator, pushing me and being tough. I never get bored!
Fitness / Personal Training
I have been receiving physio treatment from Michael for sometime now having scoliosis in the lower back and neck problems and at times being in a lot of pain. Michael is kind caring and very professional and is a brilliant physio. I would not hesitate to recommend Michael to anyone needing physio treatment. He also gives you exercise plans to improve your condition as in my case to manage it better I would just like to thank Michael for all his help and support and wish him well and once again many thanks for what you have done for me to improve my quality if life.
Scoliosis / SIJ dysfunction
Callum Welch ,
Having suffered a stroke early in 2013, I was fortunate in making a reasonably good recovery. On discharge from Hospital I decided further physiotherapy would benefit my recovery. Michael has been helping me on a regular basis for the last two and a half years, and I have a very high regard for him with the progress I have made with his expertise in dealing with the problems I have encountered.
I would recommend this course of pre/post treatment and the Mike Shawe, Stacy Chew team to anyone facing, what is in effect major orthopaedic surgery. Thanks Guys. It was hard work but fun. I really appreciate your work and help.
Total Hip Replacement
We have been seeing Michael following my 9yr old daughters operation. He has worked so well with her, encouraging and supporting her and above all making each session fun!
Complex Hip/Pelvis Surgery Rehab
Post Op Foot Surgery
Mike was able to diagnose a long term issue that others had failed to do for many years. With his excellent treatment, knowledge and advice I’ve been able to make life-long changes and my health have improved greatly. I can’t thank Mike enough for his help and have recommended him to friends, family and colleagues.
Complex Cervical and Thoracic Pain
I first used Michael when I had received injuries from a car accident! I was a very anxious client as I was just about to compete in my first ever qualifier for the OCRWC. My event was 8 weeks away and I didn't want my training to suffer due to the accident! My few weeks to begin with him where great and as he promised I was able to train within a few weeks. My mobility and strength is improving every week and at 40 years of age have never been fitter. Would highly recommend his work!!

"I have been very impressed with the quality of treatment I received. During my visits to Michael he would listen carefully and asked relevant questions and really tried to understand the pain I was experiencing.
I would of never have thought I would of recovered as well as I have with the help of Michael! My recovery has been very hard work but also its been an enjoyable experience!"
Acute Inflammatory OA
"I recently ran 4 marathons in 4 months to raise money for charity and was fortunate to have been assigned Michael Shawe as my physiotherapist. I needed regular deep tissue therapy and acupuncture. Michael did a fantastic job getting me race fit every time, I highly recommend him to anyone in need of physiotherapy."
"I experienced problems while running and walking, after 3 or 4 visits to Michael, he recommended I see a neurologist. I was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in April 2015.
Throughout Michael has provided appropriate Physio, he has given me belief, yet been realistic, he has encouraged me and educated me. He has a great balance of technical knowledge and capability, positiveness, humour and wisdom of someone beyond his years. I would suggest that you put your trust in Michael."

Lumbrical shift syndrome The lumbricals consist of 4 muscles within the hand, with some unique qualities. They are described as “intrinsic” as they only have attachments within the hand, rather than down the forearm to the elbow like many of our other hand moving muscles. The lumbricals attach to tendons within the hand which means unlike most muscles which attach more directly to the bone, they are mobile rather than…READ MORE
Knee pain is a common complaint for runners. With the London marathon only a couple of months away many individuals have begun their training an it would be unfortunate for anyone to pick up injuries along the way that would force them out of the event. We previously explored how mobility and strengthening of the ankle joint can significantly reduce the risk of knee pain. Knee pain and injury can…READ MORE
