I arrived in debilitating pain in my lower back and buttocks. Caroline Rhodes recommended that I see Tobias Lee for massage. Each time I arrived Tobias took the time to ask me how I had been since our last session, and how I was feeling that day. My Pain differed in severity, location and type on a day to day basis, so this 'check in' time was very important to assess how best Tobias could treat me that day. My treatments were as diverse as my pain: Tobias worked on a variety of techniques to try and lower my pain and get me more mobile. He did deep tissue massage, aromatherapy massage, myofascial release and trigger point therapy, solar plexus work, flexibility/stretching and range of motion work. I felt that Tobias and I worked together during my sessions, I had mentioned that relaxation techniques involving focusing on my breathing & visualisation work well for me during massage, and gave me cues and images to which to focus during massage. Tobias has a wide range of skills and some days I felt as though I was quite a tough client as my symptoms would change from day to day, but Tobias always had a solution to my particular problem area and chose a method of treatment accordingly. I came away from each session feeling a little more positive, in a little less pain and hopeful that Tobias can help me. I would highly recommend Tobias to anyone in need of some massage therapy.
