Great holistic experience with advice as well as the treatment. A tiny bit difficult to find but Andrea answered immediately and guided me calmly and was waiting for me at the door on arrival. I did feel a tiny bit exposed without a blind or curtain on the window when changing. Overall a top experience and definitely be back for more!
I had a half hour deep tissue/sports massage from Andrea in my office a couple of weeks ago. As someone who has run and cycled regularly for a long time, I always have some kind of complaint or other, and have had a lot of this kind massage to try and fix them. Most of the time they do absolutely nothing to improve the situation but in this case, even in such a short time, Andrea's work really released a lot of tension in my lower back, hips and legs, so that things were perceptibly looser cycling home that day, and some long-standing medial knee pain was significantly relieved.
I thought Andrea's style included some elements of Thai massage and more 'relaxing' forms (which are not normally my thing). He was clearly paying attention to and working with my breathing. He had quite a novel way for me to indicate when the pressure was too much, though I never had to use it as he judged it perfectly. He also observed that I probably focus too much on my lower body when stretching.
In summary, Andrea is a consummate professional and gave me one of the best massages I've had.
Andrea came into the office last week to give a few of us a mid-afternoon massage and, despite being a little dubious about whether I'd really be able to relax properly at work, I was very impressed. With some clever lighting, relaxing music and a very comfy massage bed I soon forgot I was in the boardroom! Andrea asked me what I hoped to gain from the massage, and after a quick chat about my knotty shoulders, he even gave me a few tips on how to get the most from the experience, including how to breathe using my diaphragm. When the massage started I felt more relaxed in seconds. As promised, Andrea focussed on my upper back and shoulders and it was obvious that he knew exactly what he was doing. The massage lasted about half an hour and my shoulders felt looser straight away. Amazingly enough I also felt more focussed when I went back to my desk. A wonderful treat on a Wednesday afternoon, thanks so much Andrea!
Andrea arrived at my office and set up everything in plenty of time ready for my massage (he even brought music to play which I though was a really nice touch). He paid extra attention to the areas that needed attention particularity my neck and shoulders which were in a lot of pain. Andrea is professional and a very skilled masseuse. I cannot rate him enough!
Andrea came into the office at work to do my massage. At first I was not sure I would be able to relax but he had brought his massage bed along with a music player which really helped me to relax. The first thing he did was ask if I had any problem areas and what kind of massage I usually have. I have had many massages around the world in my time and it was one of the best I have had. He used many different techniques and even though I had a lot of knots I was surprisingly very relaxed. I would definitely recommend to anyone but trust me you walk out and then wish you did not have to work.
Give it a go and you will not be disappointed, the ideal thing is he is mobile.
