"I would highly recommend Alex. I went to see her as I had hurt my lower back. Not only did she work out why it was hurting she stopped it hurting with her brilliant sports massages and advised me on what I needed to do to prevent it from happening again. I cannot thank her enough!"

Kylie L - Sports massage client

"I cannot recommend Alex enough. After leaving A&E with a sports injury, I had no idea on the recovery process and recovery time. Alex helped me in the healing process of my injury as well through taping and massage, and giving me lots of exercises to speed up the recovery. Professional, COVID safe and so helpful. I will definitely be using Alex again throughout recovery."

What can I expect from my first treatment?

Your first treatment will consist of an initial assessment, which will involve discussing your health background, your lifestyle and where any pain points are located.
