I consider Luca my sport therapist of choice. He is a very pragmatic and knowledgeable therapist. I usually see him for general sport massage. However in two particular cases he managed to fix my bad left shoulder and correct a pelvis rotation I suffered from. I would highly recommend him if you are constantly stopped by injuries and would like to get back full time on your favourite sport, or if you need a good sport massage in order to have a little boost on your recovery and performance.Giuseppe Cannella Office Worker, Cyclist, Runner and CrossFit Athlete
Max instantly put me at ease when I was feeling a lot of pain in my back. He’s professional, calm and communicates everything very clearly, from following up and checking in with me after appointments. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone!Natalie T. Teacher
Luca has been able to pinpoint the source of any injuries such that they clear up within one or two weeks. A posture assessment also helps to identify any imbalances which may make certain injuries or muscle tightness more likely. I would not use any therapist other than Luca. Because of his ability to identify problems quickly, I have been able to continue training at my normal level.Sarah Latty Gym Instructor, Runner & Gym Trainer
I went to Max when I had a bad lower back. He was very caring and knowledgable and made me feel at ease. I have noticed the effects already and am back exercising again... Definitely recommended.Simon Wingate
I went to Luca after months of having physio and sports massage at various doesn’t places... In 4-5 sessions with Luca, my neck started to get better until eventually the pain and stiffness disappeared. It’s been almost 9-10 months and I haven’t had a single incidence of neck pain since! I would wholeheartedly recommend anyone suffering from stiffness, pain and discomfort to consult with Luca as his treatments are extremely effective and the results very obvious.Shireen Naaz Office Worker, Runner and Gym Enthusiast
