I called Nicola after waking up to find that I could not move one morning! My upper back had completely locked, pinching a nerve, and I needed help fast. As an athlete, I rely on therapeutic massage to overcome injury and stay healthy, and know that proper therapeutic massage is hard to come by. Nicola was excellent in every regard. He was professional, courteous, thoughtful, and had good energy. He arrived with everything he needed, and took the time to understand what was wrong before he got to work. Please note that this review covers an intense, therapeutic session. I told Nicola not to hold back as I needed serious help to unlock my back, and he really worked hard. This is no fru-fru spa experience- Nicola bent, stretched, and dug his way through layers of frozen muscles and at times brought me close to tears. But the results were incredible- he really got things loosened up, and by the next day I was back to about 80% mobility and able to compete again. I STRONGLY recommend Nicola, but again caveat that this massage is not for the weak of heart. Nicola is a gifted healer, and you need to trust him and let him work his magic. I will certainly use him again (although I hope under less dire circumstance!). His results are great, he is fairly priced, and he is a pleasure to work with. After my session he worked on my wife and she told me he was fantastic.
