I had resisted massage for years after a couple of experiences where I had not found them very comfortable or enjoyable. But I was suffering from pain in my leg, so I decided to take action and try a massage from Adam. I was very surprised by the result: I could noticeably walk more easily afterwards (from a massage of around 40 minutes). And the exercises Adam gave me - combined with a few repeated massages - have helped lead to a longer lasting improvement too, allowing me to play the sports I enjoy without problems. One of the key things for me was that Adam took the trouble to find out in detail what my problem was so it felt like the massage was tailored to me. So, I'd definitely advise giving a massage with him a try if you have an ache or pain that is inhibiting you.
I am Adam's partner, so it may be that I am a bit biased! I used to think that massage was self-indulgent. However, I've been persuaded by results. I was finding myself increasingly stiff after sitting at a desk, and was getting more sore after exercise. Adam's massage, plus some stretches he taught me have made a real difference - I feel much better afterwards. This year, after I broke my elbow, Thai massage helped me recuperate and get back to normal more quickly.
The stretches and deep massage techniques have greatly improved the mobility of my hips - running for the bus and going upstairs - easy !
Adam is a very caring and knowledgeable therapist who understands the body very well and uses his expertise effectively to improve the well-being of his clients. His ability to 'home-in' on an area needing attention is amazing!
I am always astonished by how thoroughly relaxed yet energised I feel after a Thai massage with Adam. He tailors the experience for however I'm feeling, whether I need a deep release after a intensive period of training (I am a road cyclist and have a serious daily Ashtanga Yoga practice) or if I am in need of a softer, more therapeutic treatment. Adam is intuitive, skilful, and brings a positive sensitivity to the massage space which always makes me feel very comfortable. I fully recommend his massage to anyone, and he is especially suitable for athletes in need of specific tightness release.
