The Plane Tree in Bethnal Green East London for Massage, Acupuncture, Osteopathy and Talking Therapies
  • “Almost every acupuncture/Shiatsu session with Margré brought relief and I began to heal through regular sessions. I am now much better, and the excruciating pain in my hips and feet have disappeared.”

  • “John helped enormously in only two sessions with a badly cricked back that had me practically immobilised prior to seeing him. Recommended.”

  • “Great find. Arturo has almost completely resolved a muscular problem I’ve had for about ten years and expected to have for ever. I’m seriously pleased I found him!”

  • “Whatever you read about homeopathy being placebo is rubbish, it works, it has really turned things around for me, not just the physical but the emotional too. I would have no hesitation in recommending Tracy and The Plane Tree..”

  • “I have been seeing Tracy at The Plane Tree for homeopathy for the last 6 years. She has helped me and even more my daughter who suffered terribly from eczema.”

  • “Sabrina has been my sports massage therapist for the last ten years. I’ve been participating in sports since the age of 18… She continues to upgrade her learning and has developed her own style which I find compliments my requirements perfectly.”

  • “I have found my EMDR sessions with Martina incredibly helpful in navigating an extremely rocky transition in my life. I am now able to function in a completely different way… “

  • “Both John Mallinder (Osteopath) and Sabrina Falco (Massage Therapist) have been absolutely amazing and very professional. I would highly recommend both of them!”

  • “Will definitely recommend & will be visiting again. Had a head massage with Jo…I’ve never had anything like this done before so didn’t know what to expect, but really enjoyed & got some good tips & advice.”

  • “Top Level Treatment….Maggie provides a wonderful treatment in a calm and Caring Way…Highly recommended.”
