Feeling like a new woman. So knowledgeable and caring. Thank you thank you thank you!
Matt is an amazing therapist, knowledgeable, super friendly and makes you feel comfortable the minute you step in the room. I have found my lifelong therapist
I had an appointment with Matt today. I usually try and have a massage about once a month as part of my well being management. I always have terrible knots in my shoulders and have had problems with sciatica in the past. Matt was extremely knowledgeable and the techniques he used during my hour session left me feeling much better. He gave detailed explanations during my treatment. In the past I’ve been to many establishments for my massage fix, tried acupuncture and cupping but I think that I will stick with Matt in the future
I’ve had an ongoing rotator cuff problem for about ten years. I’ve had physio and cortisone injections over the years but with very little effect. I had six sessions with Matt and it’s better than its every been! Matt is extremely knowledgeable, not only on the workings of the body, but on the muscles and sinews and their connection to each other and how they improve or limit movement. His manner is also very calming, talking through every aspect of the treatment so that you have an understanding of why he’s preforming certain actions. His follow up emails with suggested stretching routines and reading matter was also a massive help. I wish I’d seen him sooner! I would recommend Matt without a moments hesitation
Eons ago I was involved in a car crash and as a result suffered whiplash. I have been to acupuncturists, for numerous massage therapies with a range of masseuses, these all gave temporary relief, and no cure. But Matt – success!! Plus ‘Exercises links’ to maintain your body’s pain-free mobility! 200% recommendation
Matt deals with my severe back pain and other niggles through out my body amazingly….. He knows what is wrong before I do and sorts it out, and seems to know and understand my body better than me. He is excellent at what he does.
I have had a few niggles with my lower back, right shoulder and top of my left quad, completely age related combined with thinking that I am a triathlete and 20 years younger! Matt has been able to fix all of it to the point now where I am able to sit cross-legged for the first time in I don’t know when, not that it’s something I do often, but because I can, I now do!! His deep knowledge of the body is evident and passion infectious, explaining everything he is doing as he goes along. Now that my training is in full swing it really helps to be more nimble. I can heartily recommend him to anyone.
I’ve always had problems with my calves and shoulders being really tight. Started seeing Matt in August 2016. Straight away he picked up on my problems and started working on them. Started noticing the difference but then had a break for 2 months and my problems were back. Went back to see Matt earlier this month and i’m feeling human again! He knows his stuff and the results will speak for themselves. Now I’ve found Matt i’m sticking with him because of his knowledge and expertise I’ve been able to go back to my beloved martial arts and not be plagued by injuries anymore. Highly Recommended!!!
Matt is lovely and so good at what he does, he genuinely wants to help you! He worked wonders on my neck which has caused me pain for years. Can’t wait until next time
Matt was extremely helpful and professional. He is studying for a degree in massage and is really knowledgeable. I took my grand-daughter who has back problems, and he went to great lengths to put her at ease and keep her comfortable. He even showed me how to use some of the techniques so that I could help her at home. Excellent in every way
At last, someone who knows what he is talking about. I definitely felt that the treatment had results
Karen, Bishop’s Stortford
Professional, knowledgeable, thorough. A proper deep tissue massage which – although not all of the time pleasurable due to the power of the massage – felt extremely effective. Matt is very friendly and enthusiastic. I have booked 3 further sessions as so impressed!
Claire, Bishop’s Stortford
I wanted to have at least three sessions before I gave my feedback and my goodness ‘hail to those healing hands for you have a gift’. There is pain to be had, followed by a warm oily sensation and then all the pain and stiffness of spinal surgery is gone leaving behind an ability to not only walk better but feel better. Don’t take my word for it, try it, let Matt use his knowledge and skills on you and feel right again
Tessa, Bishop’s Stortford
I found Matt extremely knowledgeable and interested in helping me with my rotator cuff injury. He was patient and answered loads of questions I had. I literally felt in safe hands and as a result, am feeling that there may well be light at the end of the tunnel
I suffered an aching neck and shoulders for quite some time now. I’ve received a few deep tissue massages off Matt and I have to say that he is the best. Very friendly and professional. Have recommended to my family and friends!
I enjoyed the massage and although, as you said, it’s not as relaxing as a normal massage, I felt it was better because it was really doing some good to my body. I had a very good night’s sleep last night. No aches and pains
Kristin, Bishop’s Stortford
Very friendly and informative with effective results. I received a follow up email with suggested stretches to do between now and my next appointment which I’m looking forward to
Fantastic, really good deep tissue massage, friendly professional and knowledgeable
Really great deep massage. Everything was thoroughly explained. I’m going back for more sessions as ive got very tight muscles in my back. But by far was the best deep massage I’ve experienced
Very knowledgeable and skilled
An excellent massage. Matt is a very likeable person and very knowledgeable in what he does. Highly recommended
Melanie, Bishop’s Stortford
Matt was incredibly helpful. He talked me through everything so I knew what to expect and then he got to work on my extremely knotted shoulders. I really feel like I got more than my money’s worth out of the massage. Am looking forward to my next appointment
Matthew offered a professional, tailor made deep impact massage. We discussed groups of muscles and areas which I knew were tense and he worked on these. I found it relaxing and thorough. I have already recommended Mathew to friends!
Fabulous friendly service and goes to great lengths to listen and understand the issues you are having. Then explains everything in detail what he will be doing throughout the treatment. The result is I have more flexibility in my left leg than I have had in a long long while. Thoroughly recommended
Matt really knows his stuff & you couldn’t get a better massage
Great massage! Matt really knows his stuff. I’ve already booked another appointment with him
Matt listened carefully and then gave me a massage that certainly felt like it was working deep tissues. He explained everything
At last, a proper deep tissue massage! Very well worth it – I’m glad that I booked the 3 sessions
Alfred and Liz, Basildon
Matt offered a fantastic professional service. His technique was thorough and the experience was highly enjoyable. We highly recommend his services. Our next session is already booked
I’ve received a few deep tissue massages off Matt and I have to say that he is by far the best I’ve experienced. I’ve had a couple of deep tissue massages in the past from others, but Matt really does know how to treat any pain you may have. He has very good technique and every time I’ve been treated, I’ve come away feeling refreshed, relaxed and basically alot happier! Definitely recommended
Joanne, Bishop’s Stortford
I was not sure what to expect and was a little apprehensive as I am new to massage but have various aches and pains so thought it was worth a try. I need not have worried, Matthew was great and put me at my ease and I can already feel that this has made a difference. I can’t wait to go back
The atmosphere was comfortable, staff were very friendly and welcoming, my health issues were discussed in details and my treatment was professionally right. I feel benefit from the massage and will be booking again
I explained to Matthew my issues and he was able to treat every one of them! When the advert reads deep tissue massage it is not lying! Cheers Matt and thanks for taking the time to explain in detail what was wrong, and how to correct it
Alex, Saffron Walden
Matt was great. Knowledgeable, professional and engaging
Had a great experience with Matt, received a very professional service. Thank you
Amazing massage so enjoyed it, Matt is also a delight and a very skilled and knowledgeable practitioner looking forward to my next one!
Barbara, Bishop’s Stortford
Matt is very likeable and knowledgeable. When he says “Deep Tissue Massage”, he means “Deep”! A hard pressure massage which really gets to all the knots. This is a therapeutic massage, rather than a relaxing massage but, absolutely spot on for me and I’m looking forward to my next session
I had a superb massage. Matt got into all of the knots and tension in my back, it was super!
After many years of massage and many years of a painful shoulder and back Matt’s massages managed to really make a huge difference. I would walk away feeling like a different person. Not only is Matt an excellent practitioner, he’s very knowledgable and puts you at ease very quickly. I cannot recommend him highly enough
Excellent massage and such good value for money. Matt was very friendly and gave a brilliant massage. He found knots I didn’t know I had! I highly recommend Deep Impact Massage!
Very nice and friendly
Great firm massage – ideal for active people
Amar, Bishop’s Stortford
I had a fantastic massage with Matthew. Afterwards I felt like I was walking on air
Can’t recommend Matt more highly. A truly professional treatment
Alyson, Bishop’s Stortford
After suffering aching shoulders and stabbing pain between my shoulder blades for some time Matthew relieved the acute pain immediately and the aching shoulders within two days. I will be trying some of the other treatments as this one was so successful. Matthew explains what he is doing and why which makes it understandable. I didn’t expect such results with only one treatment and would thoroughly recommend a course of treatments to maximise the benefits
I can’t recommend Matt enough. Love his massage. Originally saw him for a dodgy shoulder which with a few sessions was really helped! I’m not one for a light massage and Matt certainly doesn’t do that… loved it! In fact, just writing this is making me want to go back!!
Matt always ensures a truly professional, holistic and personalised deep massage treatment. He has treated me on many occasions and his skills are awesome. His knowledge of musculature and his sensitivity set him apart from the routine and ordinary. His combination of personality, empathy, skills and techniques mean a fantastic service is tailor made for each individual. I can’t rate him highly enough
