A few of Jay's reviews.
I booked a massage for after a half marathon and Jay gave a professional and tailored treatment which involved a short consultation before to understand what I wanted. The massage was a great mix of sports massage for my running stiffness and neck/shoulder where I always have issues. Jay works out of his home and the atmosphere was extremely friendly, relaxed and professional; I felt immediately at ease. And you can choose your own music from Spotify if you wish! Highly recommended.
I have straightening of my lower spine, constant pain and tightness in my hips, as well as lots of tension/pain in my upper traps/ scapula area. I have hypermobility. I'm a regular gym user. Work shift work where I'm on my feet all day. As a guy, the whole idea of getting a massage was a bit alien. But Jay made me feel comfortable throughout the whole treatment. Jay, was extremely knowledgeable, professional and attentive. His home set up is extremely comfortable and it was a less daunting experience in my mind then going to a clinic. Jay was able to identify all my problem areas and in the best possible way, find areas I didn't know I had problems with!
After the treatment i left feeling utterly relaxed, de-stressed and I can't recall having that level of mobility or having no tension at all in my body in my adult life.I will DEFINITELY be booking in more treatments with Jay, I highly recommend him.
As a new mum lugging an increasingly heavy infant around, I had been struggling with stiffness and pain across my upper back, shoulders and down into my hands. Jay's massage expertly targeted the painful areas, opening up my arms and chest that were locked into cradling position, and leaving me feeling relaxed and walking untensed for the first time in weeks.
Jay's treatment room is comfortable and relaxing, his manner is friendly and informative, and he followed up with details of some stretches for me to do in the following days to help consolidate his good work. I would recommend a massage with Elementary whether you have aches and pains you need to address or just want a bit of pampering.
Jay was a saviour! I went there almost unable to walk and after a very thorough assessment he has managed to stretch my back and allow me to release some tension and gradually get back. The ambience is very relaxing, and indeed a very good treatment.
I highly recommend anyone that requires attention to their sport DOMS to see Jay. He spends time finding out what your requirements are and in my case it was helping me with my marathon training pains. He has honestly made it easier for me to get back to training not only with his deep tissue massage but also with his aftercare advice. He is very informative and has a very welcoming and friendly manner.
Trust me you will not be disappointed if you book an appointment as you will come out feeling relaxed. Its also great to meet someone who really cares and enjoys what they do.
Excellent massage! Great location, great ambience - picked my own music - and it felt like a treatment, with Jay giving me exercises and stretches to help my back, rather than a punch-in-punch-out massage that you often get.
Jason's treatment room is lovely and relaxing; plush cushions, scented candles, music. Everywhere was perfectly clean and actually it was nice to go to a quiet home as opposed to a busy salon with a constantly ringing noisy phone and slamming doors. My massage was fantastic with plenty of attention given all over and to the knots in my back finished off with a scalp massage. I was given a choice of massage oils which was a lovely touch. Overall I would highly recommend and shall certainly be returning.
Jason was really friendly and made me feel at ease - he text me beforehand to ask me to come earlier so that we could discuss my needs without cutting into our session - and in fact he went over by a whole half an hour without expecting any additional payment. The massage was very relaxing and I felt completely comfortable with Jason - he even emailed me afterwards with details of extra exercises that I could do, along with videos - he really does go the extra mile.
Fantastic. Left me feeling super relaxed. I'm a returning customer to help release the knots in my muscles. J helps me feel comfortable and also helps to really tackle my problem areas whilst continually asking if the pressure is okay. Also a nice touch to have a choice of your music with Spotify. Great value for money and Highly recommended.
Jay was perfect. Friendly and warm and explained everything. I left feeling much more relaxed and happy
When it became apparent my back pain was not going to improve by the morning without professional intervention, I managed to get a last minute appointment at Elementary Massage. Jay not only worked on the tension in my upper back and shoulders, but also provided a wonderfully relaxing scalp massage which not all therapists are happy to include as part of a full body massage. The treatment is described as "The Tailor Made" and Jay did indeed tailor the session to my specific problems, investing the time on the areas which needed it most. Very friendly, got results and conveniently based. I'll definitely be back soon, it was a great first session. Recommended!
Jay made me feel very comfortable and I enjoyed the experience. I got lost on the way there and called him and he was very nice about it all. I think he overran on my booked 1.5 hours so that was very generous too. It is a bit unusual being in a flat, but actually much nicer, thinking back on it, than a traditional treatment set up. The massage itself was wonderful and I hope I will be able to go again soon.
You should have seen the both of us after your massage, happy, smiling and very relaxed. Then, Monday came and unfortunately we felt the " office effect" again.We definitively will be contacting you again, and recommend you to anyone that need a good massage.

Really great - would go as far as to say it's the best place I've been to in London. Was initially unsure about seeing a male therapist but Jason was fantastic, really put me at ease, and not sure I've ever got along as well with a massage therapist before. I've tried a fair few places in London, looking for the right experience and happy to say I think I've found it. Won't be going anywhere else from now on. Thanks Jason!
