Just finished another sports massage session with Mike, he’s made a real difference to several long standing sporting niggles I’ve had and also I always use him in advance of any sporting event to make sure everything is working as it should. Thoroughly recommend his services for anyone requiring a proper massage and friendly advice on health/fitness in the Manchester/Cheshire area. More...
Mike is a very knowledgeable and helpful therapist who has really helped me after just one session with a long standing injury. I would highly recommend him!
Great service & technique & I certainly went away with some great advise & I'm already feeling much better. Highly recommend if you're struggling with continued discomfort and need help!
Mike is an excellent sports massage therapist. Very knowledgeable and always goes the extra mile to give the best service. I would highly recommend him.
Mike is friendly, personable and extremely knowledgeable. I cannot recommend his S&C class more. During his class Mike was patient and took the time to explain every aspect of the class in detail including what the exercise did and where in the body it should be working.
