What are people saying?
Real words from real people
I have been visiting Adrian and referring my clients to him for the past 10 years. His professionalism and obvious body healing intuition ensures that each visit is of the highest standard. I have always receive accurate assessment and treatment of conditions from him that provide the greatest healing. His personal manner is also one that is calm, confident and joyful making each session with him a pleasure. I highly recommend seeing him for acute injuries treatment, recovery or greater wellbeing. One of the best therapists I have seen in my 15 year career in natural therapies.
As a professional athlete I’ve received weekly body work from many different therapists across Europe, the United States and Australia. After my first session with Adrian I knew that I had found something completely unique. Within just a few treatments my chronic injuries subsided, my effective training time increased and my race performances improved dramatically. I cannot speak highly enough of Adrian’s work. Truly the best physical therapist I’ve found.
Adrian’s knowledge of musculo-skeletal anatomy – and how he puts that knowledge into practice to assess and restore your body – is second to none. He is well-respected within the industry, and I could not recommend Adrian more highly as a Remedial Massage therapist. His loyal ‘following’ of clients is testament enough to his knowledge and skill. However, the proof will be in your body after a treatment with him.
After breaking my leg less than 12 mths ago during a sporting accident, and not receiving the correct advice regarding what I could and could not do, I was left unable to walk without a limp and with significant muscle reduction. Adrian was fantastic, his support and knowledge has seen me back to 99% full movement. I was provided with exercises that I could do at home, and the challenge to improve on each visit. I can not speak highly enough of his work and have no hesitation in recommending him, he is a master of his craft!
As a yoga teacher and long-term yoga practitioner, I’m acutely aware of how important it is to maintain good postural alignment and release excess tension from the body on a regular basis. I’ve been a client of Adrian’s for seven years now and I can say without qualification he’s one of the most knowledgeable and effective remedial massage therapists I’ve ever known. Whether you’re looking to optimize your body’s performance or just want to feel great, book a regular appointment with Adrian!
