I have been a client of Simons for many years and he has helped both myself and my family with numerous aches and pains relating to park runs, 10ks, triathlons and also marathon training. He works on the basis that prevention is better than cure, identifying any potential problems before they arise and his skills have ensured that we have been able to compete regularly over the years with the minimum of injuries.. He is an essential part of our training plan!
Simon is always professional and very good company. He has a huge amount of experience and knowledge not only in the field of Sports massage but in the area of health and wellbeing in general.He regularly goes that extra mile for his clients, as do his team. Simon was also able to convince my partner, who was initially sceptical about therapeutic treatments, of the benefits of deep tissue massage after a long day at work. My partner is an orthopedic surgeon and is often standing in theatre for long periods of time. As well as treatment for sports injuries, Simon offers a range of alternative, therapies including Swedish massage, Reflexology, Clinical Aromatherapy in addition to Hopi candles and Hot Stone massage. I highly recommend Simon and his team. R. Macqueen. Nurse Stirling
Having enjoyed massages for many years, I am particularly impressed with Shelagh’s high level of skill and professionalism. I believe that it is important to keep the body maintained to prevent aches and pains progressing to long-term difficulties, and this is exactly what Shelagh does. Her competent hands unfurls the knots and soothes the pain of a body under stress. I always look forward to my appointment, and the feeling of floating home afterwards. Therefore I thoroughly recommend Shelagh to you.
