After years of increasing pain from a bad hip I was persuaded to try Pilates. Wish I’d done it 10 years ago. Pilates is wonderful and Angela is brilliant. Being a man of a certain age the weekly session is tailored to my circumstances and the results speak for themselves. Although I regularly do other exercise/sport after just a few Pilates sessions both my strength and flexibility increased and each month I notice improvements. And now I rarely have any hip pain. Pilates should be prescribed by the NHS and Angela should be in charge.
Thank you Angela.
James is an excellent therapist who really takes the time to understand his clients and their unique issues. Every treatment I have had with him has been exceptional and has helped all those niggles, aches and pains no end. He is friendly, professional and exceedingly thorough. Cannot wait for my next treatment.
Really enjoyable Pilates class with Angela. I love the stretching and strengthening exercises, and I leave the class feeling invigorated and relaxed.
Thank you James for another excellent massage. It’s a very relaxing environment and the effects of the message have been really beneficial in helping me relax and recover from a back injury. Highly recommended and will be sure to tell anyone locally looking for a massage.d.
Had my first session with James on Monday. Brilliant! Will be back no doubt. James has given me the impetus to get back to exercising more and with his help will be able to relieve tension in my lower back, glutes and calves.
Can’t recommend James highly enough – you must book a session now!! Do it!!
A super, experienced pilates instructor. Friendly and knowledgeable. Makes you feel at ease, with a 1:1 approach to teaching.
I attended Angela’s group pregnancy classes during my third pregnancy (I didn’t live in Harpenden for the others!) and they were brilliant! Angela is a great teacher who had planned her classes excellently to make you feel you were doing just the right amount of stretching and effort without being uncomfortable. She is very considerate of how you are feeling each week and will give you modified exercises if you have a particular pregnancy ache or pain. It was also a good place to meet other mums too! I would highly recommend Angela if you want to do Pilates during your pregnancy.
James is a skilled and caring massage therapist. He is professional and put me at ease immediately. After a postural assessment he suggested I needed to release my shoulders and gave a good deep tissue massage. In one area it was a little sore, so he adjusted his pressure immediately. I haven’t visited many male massage therapists, but he was considerate to my modesty (leaving the room while I changed etc) and the extra strength in his hands felt good on my back as I like a deep massage. James works from a nice studio at the end of the garden which was clean and quiet. I can recommend his treatments to anyone looking for a remedial massage.
I have attended both Angela’s pregnancy and post pregnancy classes. I can honestly say that the classes were beneficial for my various aches and pains! Angela was also full of useful information too. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.
Did the pregnancy and then the mother-baby pilates class with Angela. The classes were always very enjoyable and Angela made sure that everyone felt at ease. She is very knowledgeable about a women’s body during pregancy and after birth. The classes helped me a lot during pregancy to cope with all the aches and pains and with my recovery (esp. pelvic floor) after birth.
