Kerry has really helped improve my mobility and fitness. Thanks to her remedial massage my chronic hip problem is under control. I get out of bed easily in the mornings and I can now go on long walks which I enjoy. My continuing weekly massages are improving muscle tone and keeping problems at bay.
My partner has been seeing Kerry for a few years and bought me a pregnancy massage as a present. My baby came before I was able to use my voucher but I was able to change the massage type for another without a problem. Whenever I have had a massage before, it has been within a spa environment and didnít get a great deal of benefit from them. Kerry's massages are unlike any Iíve had before as they are specific to my needs rather than a generic rub down! Kerry is very friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable.
A friend recommended Kerry to me. I had been going to the gym more and started getting consistent lower back pain. My friend was a member of a running club and said that Kerry gave good advice on exercising and stretching correctly, as well as being an excellent therapist. I liked that Kerry ensured at my first visit that I was happy with how firm she was being. She also did not push for me to book further appointments. I have been so happy with what Kerry has done for me that when my 13yr old daughter needed some help following a week of serious mountain biking, I did not hesitate to call.
I have lived in Plymouth for just over a year and have always loved getting massages. I luckily found Kerry and have been back for full body massage and lymphatic massage - which I had never had before but highly recommend. Kerry tallked me through what it was and the benefits it could bring and answered all my many questions. She is such a professional in what she does yet does it in such a friendly way.
I have been to see Kerry regularly for the past year, and I have been really impressed with the knowledge and help she has given me. I have been suffering with costochondritis, anxiety and other various muscular pains in my upper back for the past couple of years. I was beginning to feel really fed up and decided to go and have a massage. I discovered Kerry's website on Google and so I went to see her; impressed with her qualifications and expertise. I am really pleased that I made this decision, because she has helped me with so many aspects of the problems I have been suffering with. If you are reading this and suffering with any anxiety, muscular etc discomforts you should pop in and see Kerry, she also gives you a thorough consultation when you first see her.
Last Autumn I slipped in the garden and landed on my arm. Thinking that the pain would go away eventually I suffered for four months and then visited Kerry. Before I had my hour treatment with Kerry I couldn't put my hand up above my head and putting my arm in my coat was painful. I walked out of her treatment room being able to do both with ease and without pain! Wonderful!! Thank you so much Kerry. Lisette Granados L'amour Botanique
As a keen runner, my intensive training regime really started to take it's toll on my upper back, shoulder and neck muscles,(not to mention being sat behind a desk all day at work). After my first visit to Massage Fitness for a sports massage, I felt a vast improvement to the amount of discomfort felt in my back, and the breathing difficulties I was experiencing (due to the muscles in my neck tensing) completely disappeared. Kerry's techniques are brilliant and are tailored to my every need upon each visit. The standard of the room is fantastic, clean, comfortable and all therapies undertaken are done so in a highly professional manner. Wherever possible self help techniques are provided for me to take away to practise at home i.e. stretches, which is really very useful in aiding the continual improvements to my 'problem areas'. Personally, I wouldn't now go anywhere else!
I've used Massage Fitness as has been necessary for approx 2.5 years. I've found Kerry to be attentive, supportive, knowledgeable and professional during all sessions. I would not hesitate to recommend Massage Fitness.
