I had been suffering from some upper shoulder and neck pain, which was probably attributable to a lot of cycling I had been doing recently. Vlad came across as very professional and before the massage we discussed my lifestyle/exercise and what I was seeking to achieve. I felt a lot better after the session and noticed a lot more mobility in my back and neck.
Easy to book and Vlad gave me a phone consultation a few days before to discuss my injuries and what I was looking for in a massage. On the day he was very professional and put me at ease straight away. He made me feel comfortable and he definitely knew what he was talking about as the massage, stretches and techniques worked a treat. My back and neck felt amazing afterwards and I'm still benefitting days later.
I injured my knee/leg having fallen heavily on it whilst playing football with my grandson. My doctor advised that it would probably take six months or more to heal. Never having had such treatment before I wasn't sure what to expect. Vlad was very professional in gathering details of past problems with my knees/legs, so much so that he went well over the time allotted for my first appointment without charging more than originally agreed. I had 3 sessions with Vlad and although he advised me he wouldn't be able to give me a miracle cure, I can honestly say that my knee felt easier over the following days after each treatment. Because something still appears not right with my thigh muscle, I have revisited my doctors and requested an MRI scan, which was suggested by Vlad, so I am not having any further treatment from Vlad until I get the results.
Vlad is an exceptionally professional, curteous and the most knowledgable sports masseur I have had look after me. He discussed my specific issues, located the source of the pain and very rapidly began to soothe it. He was so effective that even after the one session my back was no where near as tender. He talked through his movements, explaining how and why my aches were occurring and even gave me great advice to ensure I didn't keep repeating the same strains! The only disappointing thing about the session is that it ended too soon!
I came to Vlad with acute lower back pain, which had recently flared up and was making it difficult to concentrate at work. Vlad made me feel very comfortable with his professional manner and he was able to quickly target the problem. He was able to relieve the pain in the short term and recommend a series of exercises/stretches for me to practice at home, to prevent the symptoms from reoccurring.
I will definitely return to Vlad for further treatment in the future!
