Our Happy Clients Testimonials
Brilliant brilliant brilliant. Kind, caring and knowledgeable. Would wholeheartedly recommend Dan!
Highly recommend Dan, had an inflamed hip joint due to running, very painful for 3wks, my best friend and also my brother in law put me onto Dan and after one session it already feels so much better, very nice professional young man too.
Dan saw me at late notice first thing this morning I was suffering with back pain. After the session was pain free would highly recommend him.
He's very professional and gives great advice and after care
Amazing. Over the years of trying various therapists I have never experienced the professionalism, knowledge and service that Dan provides. I have not only came away feeling better from the treatment given, but also more informed of causes to my injury, the way the body works and also how to prevent it happening again. Dan has the latest equipment in a very comfortable environment and I am always made to feel comfortable. Thank you Dan Parham
Dan, thank you so much for my regular sport massages! I've done 21 miles today and its 3 weeks till the big day - marathon! With all the inflamed hamstring and Achilles I would not be able to train without your help! Thanks a lot and see you next week!
I have had the pleasure of teaching Dan on some of my Bodymaster Method ® Courses at the University of Oxford and he has been an exemplary student who quests knowledge and wants to excel in his sports massage career, I can highly recommend his services.
