Leeds, Wellington Place
Unfortunately we are no longer able to offer services from our Wellington Place site due to the closure of L1 performance gym. We worked closely with L1 performance for over three years, and are disappointed that the facility closed. However, their personal trainers and group exercise classes are still all available online through the L1 performance website. Freedom Care Clinics patients who previously attended Wellington Place may still continue their care just five minutes away at our Park Square clinic.

Jan Adamowski – Certified Clinical Sports and Remedial Massage Therapist
The therapies I provide are very thorough and have many more benefits than a simple sports massage.
I assess the cause of the problem and seek to remove any obstacles that would prevent recovery. My therapeutic methods are reinforced with a program of stretches and exercises that are designed to correct injuries or imbalances caused by sports or daily tasks such as working at computer desks. This not only prevents injury from reoccurring but brings your body back into balance.
I have worked with world class athletes including rugby players from London Broncos, marathon runners and professional martial artist.
