Initially I went to Abi for massage because of stiffness in my neck - which made driving and looking behind me very difficult. After two sessions I had almost complete flexibility again and no longer feel pain when I move my neck. Subsequently she has worked on a similar problem with one of my arms - due, apparently, to repetitive use and carrying items too heavy.
Once again, I am feeling the benefit after a couple of sessions and have no doubt that this will continue to improve. I am very impressed with her firm yet gentle method of massage and the way she is able to pinpoint whatever work needs to be done and I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Abi at the Massage Centre sorted out a fearsome neck pain that had stopped me working for several days. The first session of massage gave me almost 100 per cent relief for a full day and 80 per cent reduction for the rest of the week. The second session provided longer term relief, and after the third session a week later I had not only lost the pain in my neck but also found that a general stiffness in my back that had plagued me for ages had also disappeared. Recommended.
They have a real absolute interest in you as a client. Real professional outfit. 10/10. Abi had a really comprehensive knowledge of my issue, and the field in general, which gave me complete trust in the centre and what it can offer to me as an endurance runner.
