Jordan joined Phoenix in January 2019 and has brought great banter (he thinks so anyway…) and genuine expertise to our team. He has a practical, thorough approach to Soft Tissue Therapy and Deep Tissue Massage and makes sure he fully understands you and your lifestyle before he gives you a treatment. Whether its shoulder tension due to desk work, or pain in the knee because of cycling, he’ll get to the root of the pain, and offer you exercises you can do at home to aid recovery post-massage.

So many people live with aches and pains caused by the rigours of everyday life, so many of which can be treated, relieved or even cured through sports massage.” – Jordan Jordan is fully insured, Police checked and a member of the Sports Massage Association.
