I now make a point of getting a monthly sports massage from Peter to keep my various niggles in check. Peter has an astounding knowledge of anatomy and always leaves me feeling better. I will continue to use reCentre and have no hesitation in recommending it.
Have had a few sports massages here – though I don’t make it as often as I’d like! Highly recommended.
Amazing treatment. Booked in for a massage with Alex who is an osteo and can honestly say it was the best treatment I’ve ever had. Can’t recommend this practice enough!
My Sports Massage was fantastic… and my problems appear to have gone away… I am pleased to be one of thousands of happy patients. Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan

“At first I was hesitant to approach a personal coach but as soon as I met Danielle I knew that she was the right fit for me. She put me at ease straightaway, understood where I was in my life and what I was looking to change. She has given me back my confidence in myself, my abilities and also provided me the tools and framework to deal with any situation that arises.” Jason
