 Deep Tissue Massage

Our modern busy stressful lives sitting at desks, looking at screens, caring for children, commuting and fitting in your exercise regime can take its toll on your body. If you feel your body is not cooperating, it feels tight or achy or you can’t move freely then that is the time to come and see me. Deep tissue massage helps get rid of those annoying knots of tension that stop you functioning. Do yourself a big favour and nip them in the bud before they escalate.

 Remedial Massage

Your road to recovery starts here. If you have had surgery, are preparing for surgery, have an injury or you simply feel that you are not moving well, we will get you flying. With your commitment, our remedial massages will get you back to 100% and even beyond.

 Sports Massage

You can smell that gold medal, it is almost in your grasp, just that little bit out of reach? Remember, preparation and training is key to achieving results. A vital component of your success is integrating sports massage into your training programme. Whether you are a weekend warrior, an occasional player or preparing for your next competitive event, sports massage will give you the best chance of exceeding your expectations and getting results fast.

 Wellbeing Massage

Had a stressful week? To-do list overwhelming you? Head about to explode? Switch off from the world and get rid of all your worries by having a wonderful, regenerating, relaxing, wellbeing massage. You will float out of our studio on Cloud Nine feeling decluttered, refreshed and ready to face the world.


Does you scar bother you?  Do you feel like it is stuck and holding you back? Do you feel disconnected from that part of your body?  Is the area numb?  There is lots you can do about it.  ScarWork is a very gentle therapy with no oils, creams or tools just the skilled hand of your therapist.  It works by releasing the fascia underneath the skin, removing adhesions and encouraging blood flow to the area which promotes healing.

 Corporate Massage

Modern working life involves longer hours than ever before, from commutes, meetings and hours sitting at desks looking at screens and working to tight deadlines. This busy and stressful desk-based working environment can take its heavy toll on our bodies especially the back, neck and shoulders. Don’t waste your lunch hour just eating, have a corporate massage and you will come out feeling less tense and fired up ready to whizz through that to do list and get the early train home.

Book Your Session

I have had approximately half a dozen massages so far and each time feel the benefit in my neck, shoulders and back in particular. As I have a long term lower back problem, I am always very cautious about who I go to for massage James is very knowledgeable and professional. I would highly recommend.

Fiona Harrison

I have been seeing James for a monthly back massage for the last 6 months. I had suffered from niggling back pain for nearly 20 years and seeing James once a month has kept me completely pain free. He is professional, a nice guy, really knows his stuff and has reasonable rates. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.
