Doing this job has its pitfalls for your body and my poor back has taken a hammering over time.
There is little glamour on DIY SOS – just long hours and hard graft.
In fact, I had such a long-standing issue with my back that I doubted I would ever be able to get it fixed. It was one of those things that I had learned to put up with – with plenty of groans thrown in.
Then Jules came along and answered an SOS.
She quickly pointed out where the problem was and got to work on it.
Very quickly, I started feeling the benefits. She’s has been working with me, and some of the rest of the crew on the programme for about six months now and it is not overstretching the point to say that I feel like a new man.
With her care and attention over that time, I am now feeling a lot better and a lot happier too. I am moving really well which, as you can imagine in this job, is pretty crucial.
There are plenty of other strings to Jules’ bow and that all-round care and attention is what helps Function Jigsaw’s work ethos stand out.
She gives advice on how to stop the injuries and issues coming back and they may involve discussing your diet or your posture.
She is also a great laugh and doesn’t take any messing about. When she gets her hands, fingers and elbows stuck into you, let’s just say you know it is doing some good!
Although, as we have said on set, it’s actually better to be watching someone else suffer, than suffering yourself!
To have her come and visit us is a huge benefit too. She travels here, there and everywhere as part of Function Jigsaw’s mobile service and has been with us on location several times. She arrives with her bed, flips it out, and we get on with it. Any time, anywhere!
She’s become known as someone who can treat the country’s best sportsman – but treating the likes of me and my partner on DIY SOS, Julian Perryman (Jules), has proved that Julie, and Function Jigsaw, are a solution for any business in whatever walk of life and I can highly recommend her work.
Thanks Jules, I don’t know what I would have done without you.
