I had to take time out to write this review as I have been blow away with the results of massage treatment from Jane over the past few months and felt others should be aware of the benefits. I broke my ankle 4 months ago and during my recovery have received weekly massage from Jane. My doctors and physiotherapist have both been amazed at my rate of recovery, according to them, I am at least a month ahead of the normal rate of recovery. This can only be contributed to the massage I have been receiving as I have done nothing else. Jane is professional, accommodating and considerate, I was not a fan of massage but now I look forward to every session. A win-win for me! THANK YOU JANE!

The Sports Massage is highly recommended. Jane is fantastic. x

The Physio’s I met here were very friendly, however I do feel that communication was sometimes difficult due to the language barrier. I’m sure that they are great with day to day minor injury recovery however I am used to intense physio due to the nature of my injuries. They were not well suited to my needs and referred me back to the MSK team after two Physio’s were unable to help me.

Lovely and clean. Up with modern technology. Friendly staff. Also runs classes such as Pilates.
