I had been struggling with a hamstring injury for nearly six months when I went to see Matt. He was very quickly able to identify the problem and test the size of the problem and recommend exercises to help. After just a few sessions the problem was no more. Would 100% recommend Matt, in fact I have done so! More...

Matt is a true professional. I went to see him initially with a hamstring injury and, more recently, a very bad ankle sprain. Matt was able to help identify the issue and worked with me through exercises and explanation to help me to full recovery. He kept my end goal (being able to run pain free) forefront and centre throughout the treatment and guided me throughout. Thanks Matt - highly recommend! More...

Having recently suffered an olecranon (elbow) fracture , during my surgery follow up I was advised by the NHS Consultant that whilst I would be referred for NHS Physiotherapy I could not wait for this to commence and should start private Physiotherapy straight away, otherwise the time in which I could hope to regain the maximum amount of movement possible would be lost. Having previously been successfully treated by Matt for an historic skiing knee injury and having taken my son to him for treatment for various sports related injuries, I knew that Matt was the person to whom I should turn for the immediate treatment that my injury required. Matt is a highly capable, calm and caring professional, not only did he help me to regain the use of my arm with virtually no restriction of movement in the small window of opportunity available (quite a feat after such a sever injury,) he gave me the confidence to undertake the necessary exercise program to enable this. As I was unable to drive due to my injury, he came to my home to provide the treatment I required, thus saving me from having to venture out when still feeling weak, tired, shocked and vulnerable from the accident and the resultant operation. I can not thank Matt enough for the treatment he provided, and I am delighted (as was the Consultant) that with his help I have achieved so much both physically and mentally and I have confidence and pleasure in recommending him.

I've had issues with my lower back for around 10 years. My fitness is important to me though so I've worked around it, but never felt like I could put 100% into my training. After a knee injury a couple of years ago I became less active and my lower back became steadily worse and developed sharper pinching pains. So I decided to contact Matt at Azzurro for an assessment. Within 3 or 4 treatment table sessions I was out in the gym. Few minutes in the gym I was doing simple movements with no pain at all. It was determined the body was being overprotective as opposed to any remaining underlying injury. So I decided to try the Pain to Performance program. This was a good mix of strength and conditioning that aided in building up my fitness as well as the main aim of helping with my back. The program helped me develop confidence again in what my back could handle. Within a few weeks of starting the program I was even able to do barbell squats and deadlifts for the first time in a decade, which was great. The pain in my back is now reduced and I can move a lot better. So I would highly recommend Matt, Azzurro, and the Pain to Performance program. More...

Went to Azzurro with a wrist injury which would just not budge. Matt was incredibly knowledgable throughout and thoroughly examined my wrist to determine the issue. His conclusion was that the previous injury had left my wrist incredibly weak, so he set about finding a way to resolve this and gave me some exercises to do in my spare time to strengthen my wrist. Matt was incredibly informative and explained everything in detail throughout, I can’t recommend him highly enough! Don’t waste your time going elsewhere if you want results then head to Azzurro.

Every time I have needed help with a sports related injury Azurro has been phenomenal in getting me back to fitness. In particular Matt is a fantastic physio and has always made sure I understand the exercises properly that he provides before I leave the studio.

We took our 10 year old son to see Matt at Azzurro because he had a calf muscle problem. Matt quickly identified the problem and his expert and professional approach and treatment quickly resolved the problem. The treatment was done in a way that our son not only understood, but also so that he could relate to it. Matt left our son with strength and conditioning instructions, that he continues to use today. Matt was even able to help with our son’s collar bone which he had previously broken! We can’t recommend Matt highly enough! More...

I consulted Matt about my back and hip pain. He was very professional and treated me with great care and respect - a lovely young man!
His treatment and exercise plan helped relieve the pain I had been suffering from for many years. Thank you so much.

I went to Azzurro with hamstring and knee pain as a result of training for The London Marathon. With six weeks to go I was concerned that I would not be able to complete my training. Matt assessed my problem and gave me some massage and exercises. This was so successful that I was able to complete my training and ran in The London Marathon virtually pain free and in a good time. Matt gave me the confidence to continue with my training and believe inMyself. I would not have been able to complete The Marathon if it had not been for Matt. I would certainly recommend him!

Matt and the team at Azzurro are fantastic. As a runner with knee problems I needed advise and training to strengthen my joints - I have had physio with Matt and I regularly attend their Circuits class and I have never looked back and never felt better. Matt is incredibly knowledgeable and attentive, is always on hand to give advise and goes above and beyond in adapting certain excercises to make sure my needs are met and that I don’t damage myself or suffer after class !My 18 year old daughter also attends circuits and enjoys it and my husband is currently working with Aiden on his fitness and nutrition in preparation for a major cycle race in the summer and Aiden also is fantastic- incredibly knowledgeable, incredibly attentive and has already surpassed Rob’s expectations of what he can achieve. We all would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Azzurro they are simply amazing. More...

As a 52 year old and long-term sufferer of chronic lower back pain, believe me, I have seen a few health practitioners over the years! As well as dealing very effectively with my immediate pain, Matt is forward thinking and focused on methods to improve my flexibility as well as strengthen my body and muscles for long term gain. He created a personalised program which included both stretching and gym-related exercises which have really helped me to build my strength and aid postural correction. Having gym equipment on site is a godsend as he is able to demonstrate how to execute the gym exercises correctly with my limitations.I cannot recommend Matt highly enough as I have seen a massive improvement in my overall health and fitness. I now go to the gym and play golf 3-4 times a week, something I was not previously able to do. A very genuine and caring physiotherapist who wants you to regain fitness so that you can do the things you enjoy most. More...

Went here initially for a massage on deal I got and since then have stayed with Matt. I had previously always struggled with a number of persistent niggles and overuse injuries which prevented me from cycling and running. Matt helped highlight the importance of strength and conditioning to me and I am now on course to get back to doing what I love. I would 100% recommend Matt to anyone - a great and genuine person who wants to help! More...

More than just a physio! I first went for a sports massage that turned into a physio session. Matt's approach is not just to "treat the problem" but to take positive steps to stop recurrence. The fact that he has a gym and teaches body conditioning allows him to identify a variety of strengthening exercises to help solve the core problem. I now attend for sports massage, physio and his conditioning classes. Having had a lot of physio in my past, his approach is refreshing, positive and productive. More...

I had problems with my back and a didn't know where to turn. I was recommended Azzurro by a friend and they were extremely helpful and I could not believe the progress I made to a full recovery in such a short period of time thanks to their help. I have continued to go back and I am going from Strength to Strength. More...

Fantastic facility run by a great set of trainers.As the whole set up is managed by Matt, a qualified physio, you get a training program that is catered to your specific needs. I started there almost 18 months ago after a series of calf injuries whilst running. Matt gave me some some physio and a structured exercise programme and thankfully my calf issues are now a distant memory ‍♂️.The skiing and running conditioning classes they run on Monday and Wednesday respectively are excellent if you just want to keep fit and improve your fitness.Can’t fault them!

I went to Azurro for a sports massage as i had intolerable ongoing problems with my neck and back, which were really affecting my wellbeing. I met Matthew who resolved the issues very professionally and compassionately. The atmosphere was very welcoming. I will definitely be returning and would thoroughly recommend him and the practice to you. More...

As a regular weekly runner, I have put up with painful knees after each run for some time, Matt carried out a full assessment and was able to identify that my running style was inefficient and partly caused by a muscle imbalance.

I am now following a programme of exercise and developing a more efficient running style.

I'm feeling an improvement after only a short time, and now able to more enjoy my running.

I will certainly be returning to see Matt again.

I have been suffering from back pain in the lumbar region for about 5 years now, and after countless chiropractor appointments with no real improvement, decided to try something different. After one session with Matt Anstey, he relieved the immediate pain and gave me excercises that have ensured it hasnt returned.

Would highly recommend Matt Anstey and Azzuro to anyone who has any physiological issues.

Having suffered from long term pain in my shoulder for a number of years, I was amazed at how much a Physiotherapy session could improve my situation. Matt Anstey was as knowledgeable as he was professional, and the exercises that he gave me have really helped.

I was really impressed by the excellent equipment on site, and how Matt showed me how to maintain good form on the gym equipment so to avoid further damage to my shoulder.

I recommend Azzurro and Matt very highly.

Q&A

We have a complete range of services to offer our customers to help them become their best self. If pain is holding you back, then our physiotherapists have the expertise to create an exercise programme that will not only improve you health and fitness, but also improve and often eliminate your pain. We call these "Pain Prevention Sessions"

If your goal is simply to get fitter, lose weight, build muscle or transform your physique, then our experienced personal trainers can help create and support you through a bespoke programme tailored to your needs. They will give you guidance on diet, training out side of sessions, and provide you with all the support you need to achieve your goals, whatever they may be.

All of this is done in our private, fully equipped studio. Without any members of the public using the gym, you can be sure you will have the environment to maximise the benefit of your sessions, without having to wait for equipment, and without the distractions that the big crowds commercial gyms have.

This depends on what your definition is!

If a perfect body to you is one that allows you to lead an active and enjoyable lifestyle without pain, then the key is variety. Do as much as you can to challenge your body in a safe way. Combining strengthening and cardiovascular exercise is the ultimate combination to stay physically and psychologically healthy.

If your idea of a perfect body is to look like a superhero, then it requires dedication and a structured plan made up of diet and specific cyclical training regimes designed to improve strength, increase muscle mass and reduce body fat.

Making either of these changes can be challenging, but Azzurro has the expertise and experience to help support you so you can be confident of achieving and exceeding your goals.

Helping people every day!

Transforming peoples pain, confidence, fitness, health and more! Doing all this whilst meeting some fantastic personalities and learning more about these people during their journeys is so rewarding. Building rapport and positive relationships with people who often have struggled to have the confidence, or have found previous barriers to making changes in the past is such a fantastic, enjoyable thing to do.
