Alleviation of musculoskeletal pain, improved musculoskeletal function and support for various Orthopaedic conditions and ailments, massage is a valuable tool and an effective remedy for therapeutic healing and all-purpose maintenance of the body.

I had severe pain in my arm from a bad tendon tear and nerve issues from inflammation and repetitive strain. Could not even bend my elbow, I was told I needed surgery which I hated the thought of.
Jamie worked on a lot of my issues in a very professional and also caring attitude and has removed my need for surgery and heavy pain medication which I stopped after a few sessions. He’s helped me tons and I feel loads better, cannot recommend enough. Top guy and will continue to use him.

I would thoroughly recommend Jamie’s service. Having recently suffered a reoccurrence of a long standing hip and pelvic injury, I am now able to walk without any pain. And hopefully resume running shortly. You not only get Jamie’s experience as a sports therapist but also his knowledge which has been invaluable in my continued recovery .

I had been troubled by excruciating sciatic nerve pain for 6 weeks when I approached Jamie to ask if he could help. His approach was fascinating and very effective. I felt an improvement after the first session and a massive shift after the second. We continue to work together and he has sorted out a number of old injuries which had been niggling for some time. Jamie is friendly and professional and I thoroughly recommend.

Jamie has been working to release a stiff neck and muscle knot in my shoulder which has been troubling me for years. I have seen various practitioners and therapists previously with little improvement. Yet Jamie has achieved results after just two sessions. He is knowledgeable and insightful and his unique method is definitely effective.
