looking for personal recommendations for at-home massage therapists. don't belong to a gym and don't really rate the massages on offer from beauticians/ beauty salons. thinking of deep tissue/sports massage type therapists. grateful for any recommendations
Hi Lagse1, I'm not sure if you mean at their home or at your home! If you're happy to go to them, I go every now and then to Sue Glasgow at the Siobhan Davies Studios (http://www.siobhandavies.com/index.php/parent/68/item/505) who does great DEEEEEP tissue massage.
Not sure whereabouts you are but I can recommend Adelle Griffiths for Physio and sports massage - she's based at The Colombo Centre (gym) in Colombo Street, off Blackfriars Road. She's been treating my neck and shoulders for a while - I'd had a frozen neck - really, really painful with the associated monster headaches and pain - went to see osteo - no help, doctor for muscle relaxant - no help. Adelle spent an hour massaging the knots out and after three long months I was able to turn my head again. Thoroughly recommend her.
No association etc - just so grateful! You don't need to be a member of the gym and, it may be worth asking if she'd do a home visit though I don't think she does as she'd have to carry the large bench around.
If you look at SE1 Direct's last week's e-letter, look for the ad "Deep tissue remedial massage". Nikki is offering a £70 massage for £50 (about 1.5 hrs) to SE1 readers, based near the Globe Theatre and she is excellent.
