James has provided me with very effective sports massage therapy on several occasions where the rugby season had taken its toll. I suffer with tight shoulders and neck due to playing in the front row, but after half an hour on James's couch my neck felt like new :-) He has also massaged my calves and was really effective for getting the knots and tension out of them. He's very professional and efficient, listens to the issue you're having and then gets right on with sorting out. Cannot recommend highly enough!
I started regular massages with James as part of my overall fitness programme. I found the massages helped superbly in soothing the aches and pains I’d developed in my muscles through regular circuit and weight training. James is the consummate professional and an extremely skilled masseur; he makes you feel very relaxed but really works hard on your muscles. I found the regular sessions shortened my recovery times and allowed me to step up the intensity of my programme. I would recommend his sessions to anyone who participates on sports or who as part of a general wellbeing programme.
Having been training hard for a BJJ tournament my back was sore and tight, especially in the lumber region. James took a very professional approach asking me about my training, the problem, where I needed to be physically for my competition and timings. The sports massage James delivered alleviated the issues I was having and enabled me to keep training and compete. James also checked in with me regularly to ensure I was still in good shape and that my training was going well with no injury issues. His combination of professionalism, friendly approach and after care is exactly what is required.
I was suffering with very tight calf muscles – I’d just started running again and had had a previous issue with a torn calf last year which seemed to be impacting my movement. One session with James, although very intense, seems to have fixed the issue and I am now running comfortably and at distances I never thought I could do. James is pleasant and efficient, he got to the root of my issues quickly and I was very happy with the overall experience. I can’t recommend him highly enough.
James was professional and effectively used treatments to address my areas of issue, shoulders and calf’s. He gave good advice for stretches to help assist my exercise regime and mitigate injuries in the future. I would happily recommend him to others.
James has been fantastic in a number of capacities, James has worked with the University of Gloucestershire ladies team where we had a very successful year winning both BUCS 15’s and 7’s competitions. He also has helped me with my RFU work supporting events that we run with local schools and clubs. I would like to say that James is incredibly professional and always has the best interest of the player at heart. I do not know where we would be without James’ input this year as he provides the girls with masses of confidence as James is incredibly talented at what he does. I highly recommend James’ services.
James has been fantastic all season with the University of Gloucestershire women's rugby team. James is incredibly professional and always has the best interest of the player at heart. No matter what venue we are playing at James always comes fully prepared for all situations. He has also given up alot of his spare time to provide Sports Massage to the girls, which has helped us all recover to the best standard possible. I highly recommend James’ services.
I sprained my ankle at rugby and not only did James provide immediate first aid by assessing the damage and treating the injury, he helped with my long term recuperation to get me back into playing. The exercises and stretches he recommended allowed my ankle to strengthen so that I could walk on it sooner, and more importantly to prevent me injuring it again. When I was back playing he strapped up my ankle and ensured I was always okay. He is experienced, meticulous, and actually cares about you - I would definitely recommend his services.
James is a fantastic, experienced, reliable sports therapist. He has helped me on many occasions, with a range of different rugby and cycling injuries that I've acquired over the last few years. I would recommend James to any sports person with an injury with his wide range of skills. Without James' help I wouldn't now be playing rugby or cycling.
James is so professional in his approach to make you feel at ease when undergoing a massage. He was able to help me with my back as bending over at work had caused it to go extremely tight. James visited me at home at a convenient time for me as I find myself in such a busy schedule. This helpful and supportive manner was exactly what I needed to help me recover effectively. I would recommend him to anyone.
