TESTIMONIALS

Can’t recommend Neil enough. He made me feel relaxed and at complete ease throughout the treatment – even when tackling the most brutal of knots! Fantastic knowledge and professional, yet fun, manner. Who knew sports massage / injury recovery could be such an enjoyable experience. Will be back!

My shoulders and back were extremely tight, but Neil gave me some great advice, and really loosened the muscles. The area feels much more comfortable after the session, thanks!

Very informative, Neil explained his actions and approach including thoughts on how to improve the current sitation with stretches and weights. Great communication.

A great treatment, The range of motion tests help me to understand which muscles were tight and attributing to my back pain. Neil was courteous and professional and very informative during the treatment.

CLAIRE M

Had my first treatment with Neil this morning and I’m thoroughly impressed.

He took the time to really analyse the structural/mechanical causes of my injury and then treated me with a sports massage that wasn’t brutal, yet demonstrably improved the range of motion in my problem areas.

Neil is incredibly professional and the passion he has about what he does comes across very clearly.

I’ll be back regularly.
