As a runner I was suffering from both knee and back problems. Her knowledge is second to none, the treatment she gave and the longer term plan she put in place has allowed me to become a stronger and fitter runner. Would highly recommend Donna for both physio and for Pilates.
Donna is an excellent physio and would thoroughly recommend her. She has helped my son with a couple of injuries acquired through playing football, he’s at an academy and plays most days. Not only did Donna very quickly deal with the injuries he presented with, but also corrected his rotated hips/lower back which was the source of many of his problems. Donna got him back to match fit really quickly, am very impressed with her knowledge and skill.
Thank you, Donna, for my fantastic life coaching sessions. They have helped me to restore the balance in my life and given me the confidence to put into place the business ideas I’ve been procrastinating over for years. Your holistic approach, as well as your wisdom and warmth, made the sessions both enjoyable and insightful. I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone. After years of sidelining my career so that I could prioritise bringing up my children, I now feel able to navigate the next life stage with confidence and enthusiasm.
Donna really does care about her patients and students, giving us all personalised advice.
I love visiting Donna as she makes you feel completely at ease, it’s a lovely warm and cosy environment in her studio and is very therapeutic, I come away feeling so relaxed.
I would highly recommend Donna for her knowledge and professionalism.
Donna helped our son who had an ongoing problem with an old shoulder injury. He saw doctors and shoulder specialists, had MRIs and xrays, he had acupuncture and saw an osteopath, all to no avail. Donna saw him once and diagnosed the problem immediately and gave him exercises which helped enormously. He had applied for the army but they rejected his application because of the injury. After appealing and being able to prove himself physically he has now gone on to pass out of Training Centre as the top Rifleman on his course all thanks to Donna.
I have been currently attending Donna’s Pilates class for a couple of years now after being recommended by a friend. Pilates with Donna has had a huge impact on the way I feel about myself. It has changed the way I think about my body’s positioning .. how I walk, run or do other general exercise. I feel I am constantly building my core so therefore strengthening my body so I can protect myself as I age. Donna has supported me with her great experience and knowledge of the human body. Shes spurred me on to go to the next level, pushing me on when needed. She checks everyone during her classes even us that have been going for years to make sure we are in good alignment. I could go to pilates every day, the feeling of relaxed lightness, stretched limbs and clear mind is my weekly highlight. This lady is a little gem!
I recently had the pleasure of an online physio session with Donna Millard. Organised professional and insightful, I found the hour incredibly productive and I have made great progress in subsequent days. You get the feeling Donna really cares, and her positivity as well as her knowledge on how the body works, moves and general well-being shine through. I could not recommend Donna highly enough.

Having returned from Donna’s 2023 retreat in the Peak District I can honestly say that I feel like a new woman!
Donna had thought of every little detail to make the whole retreat so special and welcoming for everyone.
The location was one of such amazing beauty and the accommodation was warm, stylish, homely and comfortable with absolutely stunning views of the surrounding hills and valleys.
The food was out of this world, Bex is an incredibly talented chef with healthy vegan food that was beyond tasty!
Natalie provided us with amazing massages to promote further relaxation and wellbeing.
Donnas classes were outstanding, great for every level with focus on using different props to improve posture and build, stretch or relax our muscles . The meditations and gentle music soothed our souls and lulled us to sleep well at night.
Donna has put so much thought and effort into making this retreat so truly inspiring but also fun and relaxing. Everybody was so lovely and we shared the love and joy xxx
Donna you put so much effort and energy into making it so very special for everyone by going that ‘extra mile’.
Everything about the weekend was perfect, from the venue and the setting over looking the breath-taking scenery of the Peak District, to Bex’s delicious vegan food, your Pilates classes were focussed with everything so well organised, as well as having a relaxing schedule with the freedom to participate if you wanted to. From walks to emerging yourself in fresh water in the local river, which I avoided only because I thought photos were also a priority! Last but not least, to share this very special experience with the beautiful group of people I was surrounded by is something I will never forget. You are a true legend Donna and thank you again.
I hope you found the physiotherapy testimonials interesting, here is a little about me.
As a qualified physiotherapist my core values are to consider the whole person and treat the whole person. I use a caring and sensitive approach to relax my patients and gain their trust. I have a hands-on multifaceted approach with effective and positive treatment outcomes, using evidence-based practice with Chinese medicine and other complimentary therapies.
As you can see with my physiotherapy testimonials, I am proud to say that I have gained most of my patients through word of mouth recommendations.
