Book Your Session

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.

Suzi Walton

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 was advised by rheumatology to take up yoga or pilates. Angela was recommended to me. I was very sceptical but I went along. I was made to feel at ease and alternatives were always provided for me when I was unable to manage something. It definitely helps me ….and I enjoy it! I was then given a massage by James and the relief that this gives me is incredible. They are an incredible team and genuinely care….I couldn’t do without either now!
