I frequently travel from South Africa to London to referee International Rugby union, I usually get off the plane with all the usual aches and pains associated with long haul travel and always book in for a deep tissue massage with Lizzie Atkins. I have found Lizzie to be thoroughly professional and highly effective in her deep tissue massage and a session with her has me ready for Twickenham! I can recommend Lizzie to anyone who needs deep tissue massage for muscle pain associated with computer/desk work, travelling, physical training etc.
