The treatment I received from Jacky was just what I needed, and I wish I hadn’t waited so long to make a booking. I felt my whole body was crumbling. Jacky was great at listening to my complaints and then focusing on the key areas. Her treatment has made a real difference after just one session, but I will be returning to see her again and make more progress. Her explanations and advice were very beneficial throughout the session.

I had a massage with Jacky at the Healthy Living Centre, St Paul’s Road, Islington. She was fantastic. Not only did she sort the issue I had with my neck, she also gave me very useful advice. Most sports massages I’ve had are very firm, but Jacky’s approach to my neck was very gentle, and to my surprise, worked perfectly. I was drifting off to sleep by the end, which shows how relaxing it was. And when I got up I had full mobility back in my neck/back.
