    OM Massage Saved My Holidays !

    06-02-2016 by Didier

    I booked a two-week holiday to New-Zealand. Unfortunately a nasty backache as well as a stiff-neck accompanied me through the whole flight from France. When the plane Ianded I thought my holiday was ruined. Someone told me about OM Massage so I decided to pay a visit to Ruy and Walter. Not only did they manage to get me relax with an unforgettable massage but they also managed to make both pains disappear which was extremely unexpected. They very kindly offered all sorts of advice which I'm still applying now to avoid getting "stuck". Thank you guys ! You saved my holiday!

    Answer from OM Massage Therapy on 09-02-2016:
    Thank you very very much for your fee back, we hope that we help you and remember next time you coming visit NZ, please coming have a café with us okay .... thank you

    Excellent massage

    05-02-2016 by Kathriona

    Ruy and Valter have massaged my tight muscled body every 2 weeks for the past 6-7 years and my body loves it! They are superb - professional, customer focused yet genuinely friendly and welcoming. They respond to my aches and pains and I leave feeling refreshed and energised. It took me two years to find these guys after trying several other places in Palmy and I haven't looked back since?

    Best massage ever

    16-11-2016 by Jess

    I have been receiving treatment from Katrina at ProActive Massage for the last month and she has helped me so much with my back pain not only just massaging the areas I have pain but assessing me and getting to why it is occurring in the first place. She has so much knowledge and understanding about the human body and the best hands on treatment I have ever had (and I have had a lot of massage over the years). Even though I am now not in pain and do not necessarily need massages as regularly I will be returning every few weeks.

    Best therapist

    03-05-2018 by Helen Bangs

    Working in a physically busy environment on my feet all shift, I have a tendency to cause posture problems. Therefore my back becomes achy and I'm aware of pain in my hips and lower back. Catherine has been the key therapist to relieve these with her massage techniques. Prior to seeing her years ago, my GP referred my to physiotherapists but their help was brief and not what was needed for me. So Catherine's posture maintenance massages for me are the best relief benefit that involves back and body alignment. She can pinpoint the root of the problem, massage these problematic areas and improve your physical well being. She's professional and ultimately the best deep tissue therapist I can highly recommend.

    Answer from CC Body Therapy on 31-07-2018:
    Thank you very much for the review Helen.

    Got my life back

    21-03-2017 by Bhadra Reid

    I’m 66 and, prior to coming to Catherine Cunliffe I had tried a number of health modules. I didn’t know what was wrong with me. Despite leading what I consider to be a reasonably healthy life and taking many supplements, my body seemed to be losing its strength and was stiffening up all over; I was always exhausted, and had worsening back pain which was threatening to inhibit my mobility. I started coming to see Catherine and have had six sessions with her. With each session, the pressure she applied on certain parts of my body, her stimulating deep tissue massage, and stretching of my muscles and fasciae, have flexed my system and allowed subtle energy to readily flow through me again, the blockage of which I now realize, was a huge part of all my health problems. Catherine has given me back my life. My treatments with her have returned my physical strength , energy, and mental clarity; have revamped physical mobility, improved my posture, and hugely diminished pain. She has also given me exercises to help maintain and continue to improve these conditions.

    Healthier life

    23-06-2016 by Tertia Guest

    I am a stay at home Mom with 3 small kids. I was constantly at the doctors for all sorts of things for the family, just to be sent home with lotions/antibiotics. Which was a short term solution before the next thing popped up. Basically just treating all the symptoms, and never really looking at the bigger picture. So when I approached Shona I was looking for something different, just not sure what it was. And what she had to offer was the cause of some of these issues, i.e. eczema, dandruff, candida, runny tummies, and chicken pox to name a few. Little bit, by little bit, she changed my whole outlook on alternative medicine, i.e. herbs, natural home remedies, and foods we eat. With every illness, she gave me really useful literature to take home, with a break down of natural remedies to use, along with foods to include or exclude. The food/nutrition side of it has been really interesting for me. Simple suggestions from her side to get the maximum benefit from foods we already have at home. With some changes in ingredients, and different recopies, I feel confident that I am giving my family a balanced and healthy diet. She has enabled me to treat a lot of illnesses at home successfully. For myself I have been struggling to come off antidepressants for 10 years, I can say I have successfully weaned myself off with the help of Shona and her herb combinations. I have more energy, and feel better than what I have in a really long time. It has been a great journey.

    Amazing! I have tried lots of different massage therapists around Auckland. I have found Hat Yai Thai Massage is the best I have ever experienced anywhere. A total treat, & awesome value for money to boot. My therapist Jazzy was very professional, very polite and very calming making me at ease, she worked wonders on my pains and would recommend her. I am certainly going back. I went back today, for more treatment, this time was another awesome experience with Jazz, she certainly knows her stuff and easily knows how to ease my pain.

    Number 1 Service

    30-03-2016 by Alice Stringer

    After 2 years of studying and working I was 5 months out from my wedding and possibly in the worst shape I had ever been. Despite having had really bad experiences with personal trainers all over the country (surgical training makes you move a lot) I was willing to give another one a try just to get me wedding fit. Enter Emma. Emma's expertise, innovative thinking and humour was excellent. She tailored every session to me and kept changing them to keep me interested and motivated without trying to kill me. I can honestly say that I enjoyed most of every session... OK you will never get me to say that I loved the burpies or the mountain climbers but I did go from barely being able to do one to being able to complete the whole minute circuits reasonably easily. By the time the wedding day came I was more toned but much more importantly I was fit and healthy so I could enjoy the day to its maximum (and keep up with the dancing till the band stopped playing). Emma always did her best to fit in with my ever changing schedule and further testament to her professionalism and encouragement is that I even kept the sessions up after the wedding. Thanks Emma. If I wasn't leaving the country you would have a client for life.

    Brilliant

    26-05-2017 by Jo Abplanalp

    Much further on into the therapeutic process.....I feel truly transformed. This has not been an easy process to say the least. Karin has remained steady and consistent through out. My trust and positive admiration for Karin's skill and determination and understanding has increased. Especially in the toughest most painfully confronting periods of my therapy. I have come face to face with the parts of myself that I loath. She has remained with me, firmly compassionate, and without judgement. Brilliant work Karin, I accept and like my Shadow Side. I feel more integrated as a person, less scattered in a million directions. My relationships with others has improved immensely, particularly with my children. So grateful. Huge respect for Karin. Highly recommend her.
