“For four days and nights I had an agonising pain in my lower back, After a distress call and an hour massage by Kevin Fitzgerald, I was able to walk and sit without wincing and got a great nights sleep.”
“That’s the most precise anatomical massage I’ve ever had. It’s fantastic!”
““For professionalism and sensitivity, quality and experience in massage therapy, you’re in good hands with Kevin. Kevin Fitzgerald’s the massage therapist’s massage therapist. He’s got my back.”
“The massage was great, I really appreciated it and it worked wonders – no more waking up with headaches which is always a bonus!”
“More effective than osteopathy and physiotherapy in healing my hip and buttock.”
“Thank you very, very much for the wonderful job you did on my hip the other day. It is absolutely brilliant. In fact, the degree by which it has improved is only starting to sink in. I now realise I haven’t got the constant pain that has been in that hip for probably 25 years or longer. Unbelievable Kevin; the improvement. Thank you very, very much for the wonderful professional and caring service you gave me the other day. Just absolutely brilliant.”
““Kevin was really lovely and welcoming. One of the best massages I’ve ever had. Highly recommended!”
““I work in front of computers all day and got an increasing feeling of tension in my neck and shoulders. It was like my tendons and muscles were all tangled up. I had been recommended to Kevin and I can now understand why. The massage was so subtle but I felt like all my knots and tension were being gently and masterfully released. Kevin also gave me some simple hints on how to bring my body into alignment while working at a computer. I actually feel clearer in my mind at work now as well as more comfortable in my posture. Kevin is professional, considerate and so so knowledgeable. I highly recommend Kevin to locals and visitors alike.”
