Tiny Tim’s is a unique place which fulfils a very real need. It is one of the few places my disabled son can receive the treatments he needs in such a calm, caring environment. The Bowen therapy in particular has relaxed him to the extent that he is able to cope much more easily with some medical interventions. Plus he can now have his hair cut without anxiety.
My little boy Oliver has been coming to Tiny Tim’s for a few months now and the change in his development has been amazing to watch his confidence has grown so much under the guidance of his physiotherapist everyone is extremely patient and kind. Big Big thank you to everyone at Tiny Tim’s.
Since Rylee has been Seeing Marie for regular Physiotherapy, he has come on so well, I would be left lost without the support of Tiny Tim’s and I am sure that Rylee’s progression would not have been so great without it.
Our two year old daughter Elise, suffers with Downs Syndrome. This carries with it a variety of difficulties for her physically and mentally.
Attending Tiny Tim’s has had a significant effects upon Elise. The charity, through its staff has developed and delivered a programme of exercises and massages that have helped strength her lower body and legs this in turn has help her to begin walking. Through the professionalism, friendliness and caring staff, she has become more co-ordinated and confident giving her greater mobility.
We were told by NHS staff that nothing more could be done to help our daughter but, due to the dedication and resourcefulness of the staff at Tiny Tim’s, the ‘official’ prognosis had been proven incorrect, something we are extremely grateful for.
Without the support, help and encouragement of the Tiny Tim’s staff and them being prepare to do what others would not do, our daughter is developing into a wonderful and confident little girl.
My son William has recently been for a physio assessment and they said that he had made a significant improvement (20% better) since coming to Tiny Tim’s for massages and physio sessions. I am absolutely thrilled and so very grateful that this Charity is able to provide such an imperative service for my son. William really enjoys these sessions as well, so physically and emotionally this is of huge benefit to him. Thank you so much.
