Say About Us!
Highly Recommended. Went and saw Alex after a long working week, tight and tense, came out feeling relaxed and well cared for. I thought I just needed a light, relaxation massage but after a thorough assessment, Alex was able to find those points holding much of my tension. He was able to feel when/where my body was holding onto some of it and gently invited me to participate, both passively and actively, to achieve total release. The space is clean and inviting and the price is great!
Cannot recommend this clinic enough. Its my go to when ever i’m injured. Between Michael or Dan you cannot go wrong. Big thank you for keeping me fighting fit 👊
I had a massage with Jess and absolutely loved it! She is very informative and asks the right questions to ensure your treatment is best for you. The clinic is also very inviting and in a great location. Would recommend to anyone 🙂
Best thing I ever did was to start seeing Michael. He truly has healing hands. I would recommend to everyone to see him or any of his team.
