I have had many treatments over the past few years with Alyson.

What makes Alyson special is that she always gives 100% in all her treatments whilst maintaining  a friendly and professional experience.

I consider myself very fortunate to have found such a reliable and professional therapist who is a very skilled practitioner. 

I look forward to all my appointments. We have great conversations.

 Alyson shares her professional knowledge of new ideas and shows great enthusiasm in her practice, ensuring she is up to speed with key initiatives.

I have no hesitation in recommending her.

I went to see Alyson Ritchie to see if she could help relieve the pain in my neck caused by whiplash 8 months earlier. The initial consultation was very thorough checking my posture and the range of movement of my limbs etc.The treatment was very different to the Physio sessions I had received as part of the insurance companies rehabilitation, in which I had not seen any reduction in pain in my neck and restricted movement. The treatment didn't just involve deep tissue massage on the muscles around the neck she also massaged the shoulders and the back including neck stretches. After 2 treatments the pain had virtually disappeared. I had a further 3 treatments and for the last 3 months I have been pain free. I would certainly recommend Alyson to any of my friends

I had been having some issues with my neck and hips, mostly from Jiu Kiuso (possibly from a lack of mobility!.  But safe to say I feel like a new person today.  Alyson is amazing , a verty skilled and lovely person to boot.  She is on top of the COVID situation and very professional.  I cannot recommend this lady  enough.  Get yourself booked in.  You won't regret it!

Session 4 - Can definitely tell I’ve had my session with

Alyson Ritchie today! Am sore from top to toe -  a full body sports massage was definitely needed after months & months of hard &  heavy weight training. Thank you Alyson for working your magic on me again and I’ll see you after lockdown for round two. 

I can not recommend this lady enough 5 treatment all the way

 

 

Session 3 - My last session with the amazing Alyson Ritchie before I head to the BPF world powerlifting championship on Friday. This amazing lady not only helped ease my tendinitis in my elbow but relieved other pressure points in my upper body too, relieving the tightness that had built up with lifting in my back and both forearms. I can not thank you enough Alyson, I did think at one point i’d not be able to go & lift but your magic fingers & incredible  knowledge has enabled me to go & compete so the biggest thank you ever!

 

 

Session 2 -  Another amazing session with Alyson Ritchie, working her magic finger on me to help get me ready for the BPF world powerlifting championships next weekend. Thank you so much I really appreciate what your doing for me and can’t believe the difference already .

 

Session 1 - Wow!! that feels so much better! big thanks to Alyson Ritchie

for fitting me in and fixing me up ready for the world powerlifting championship in just over two weeks time.

Wonderful back and shoulder massage with Alyson. After a few very stressful months my shoulders were very stiff and knotty, mobility starting to suffer.

 

Under Alyson’s very expert hands my shoulders have much more mobility and more importantly no more pain. All Covid guidelines adhered to. Excellent service by a lovely,caring professional.

BBooked in with Alyson for a relaxing restorative massage while recovering from surgery, it was absolutely amazing.

 

Alyson gently eased knots and tight spots while always being mindful of sensitive areas around the surgery site.

 

Finishing with a head massage, I floated home and into a perfect restful sleep

My second massage over the last couple of months, I can’t recommend Aly highly enough.

Initially I’d been having a little discomfort in the lower back region following resuming weightlifting and training, however since the first massage I have had no such issues at all since.

 

The second occasion was to relieve tightness, stress and knots built up through training and teaching in the upper back and shoulder region. The attention to detail was second to none, she always puts her clients needs first and is constantly talking through what is happening. A calm, relaxing environment and when I left my shoulders were about 3 inches lower and I was half asleep! A third booking looms!

I booked in with Alyson for a consultation and deep tissue massage recently and she was fantastic. The COVID-19 measures were well implemented and the space is warm and relaxing.

 

After a few quick mobility tests Alyson had identified the problem areas, diagnosing poor workplace posture, and got to work. The deep tissue massage was thorough and worked to relieve tension in areas I didn't even realise were causing issues. Alyson is friendly and chatty and works with you to ensure the problem areas are dealt with and you are comfortable throughout. Post treatment we also worked through preventative measures like moving throughout the work day and static stretches to assist with mobility and persistent discomfort. Highly recommended!

I had never been to a sports & remedial therapist before my initial visit to Alyson. I have a lot of wear and tear issues as a result some injuries over the years. Alyson soon put me at ease, she reviewed the problems and then suggested what was required with a strategy to achieve those goals.

Alyson always, very carefully, explains the treatments needed and what to expect both during and after the sessions.

I decided to contact Alyson because of the recommendations from people I know who have visited her and been incredibly pleased. I have found Alyson to be professional and obviously very experienced in her field. In terms of follow up, Alyson suggests focused exercises to help cement the work done in the sessions and makes contact in between to see how things are progressing. In terms of outcomes, I have felt a noticeable improvement in suppleness, better posture, and a significant reduction in migraine headaches. I have already suggested a visit to Alyson to a friend and would highly recommend her to anyone.

I have just been for my second pregnancy massage with Aly, it’s such a lovely experience.

 

Alyson is so warm and welcoming, I felt completely comfortable with her and very relaxed. When it came to the massage, I didn’t even need to tell Alyson where my tight spots were  - she found them straight away both times. Both times I have had a massage from Alyson I’ve left feeling like absolute butter.  I could not rate her enough, highly highly recommend.

Laura Herrington

Had my first ever Indian Head Massage with Alyson this week. I felt very welcomed and at ease as soon as she answered the door. She explained what would happen before starting.

I'm 33 weeks pregnant so it was good to know what to expect.

 

A lovely 40 odd minutes later I unfortunately thought I was going to faint so she helped me to another chair and sorted me out. Alyson's kind and caring manner made me feel I was in good hands right the way through the treatment. I know where to come once I get back into the gym after my birth recovery!

I have been to several massage therapists in this area in the past, but from my first appointment with Alyson several years ago I knew that I found the right therapist for me.

Following a thorough assessment of my motor muscle / pain issues, Alyson very quickly established the best treatment approach for me. Each consultation is tailored to my specific needs on the day, alleviating old and any new pains, and restoring my range of movement.

 

I usually have a full back, shoulder and neck treatment, and prefer a strong deep tissue massage to loosen my 'knots', and Alyson certainly delivers every time!

 

Alyson is a very conscientious and kind professional, she makes sure you receive the full benefit of her expertise at each treatment. At your choice there is either relaxing music playing, or peace and quiet, but often we just have great conversations.

 

Alyson is sure to make everyone feel perfectly at ease, and she has an honest enthusiasm for her work. I have already recommended Alyson to many of my friends, who have all praised her very highly, too. So if you have any muscle tightness, restricted movement, arthritic joint pain or are rehabilitating after orthopaedic surgery /injury, Alyson is the person for you!

Jordan Celine

I had a pregnancy massage with Alyson, it was brilliant, relieved so much tension and I felt so comfortable and relaxed through out, I would definitely recommend!

Thomas Gavin

Booked in recently with Alyson regarding a sore back and general tightness in my legs after returning to weight lighting and increase in training.

A very thorough service, with great attention to detail on areas of tightness and particular stress. Immediately after the session, the concerned areas felt 10x better and after a few days everything felt as good as new! A perfect reset to continue with training!

Alyson checked in after a few days to check everything was in good working order and demonstrated some stretches to make use of going forward, superb aftercare!

I’m already booking in for another session in the future, one of the best in the area. Thank you.

Ann Harrison

Form a very warm welcome at my first appointment with Alyson several years ago I have had amazing treatments and felt very relaxed and comfortable.

Alyson is professional, very kind and has unique hands which miraculously seem to massage pain and stress from  my lower back and neck.  As well as massage, Alyson also uses neck stretches which give wonderful relief to migraines and stress.

 

These treatments allow me to continue gardening and running around after grandchildren.  I feel so lucky and privileged to have found Alyson and I have great pleasure in recommending her.

 

e great pleasure in recommending her.

For several years I have benefitted greatly from Alyson’s massages, suffering as
I do, from shoulder and back pain.
She quickly understood my individual needs and through her holistic approach,
has continued to bring considerable relief to my troubled areas.
Alyson uses a range of massage techniques and explains clearly what she is
going to do and the reason for it.
I never fail to be impressed by Alyson’s professionalism, skill and client care
and have no hesitation in recommending her.
