John has a unique approach in his work, there is no 'one massage fits all', each of the cases he treats are as individual as the client themselves, he will tailor your therapy according to your body's needs. Treatment will often include a personalized plan of physiotherapy stretches and exercises to continue your therapy at home, encouraging your body to heal further in between sessions.
