"Since undertaking triathlon training, the heavy workloads have put my body under tremendous stress and strain. I have been having treatment from Josh for quiet sometime now and without doubt he has given the best results in terms of relieving muscle pain and relaxing stiff joints. I love the incredible release and relief I get from Josh’s trigger point treatment. He is totally knowledgeable about the body and the treatment and care of it. I like that Josh clearly knows what he is doing. When I described my various body soreness and pain issues he was able to pin point the areas of trouble and get straight into it. I would recommend him to anyone, especially athletes who want to move easier and freeer. It was by far the best massage I have had in my life!"
