My sincere thanks to everyone that has taken time out of their busy schedules to write a brief summary of their massage experience and allowing me to share this on my website.
If you are looking for a highly
skilled, knowledgeable, professional, look no further than Chris Wood at Clifton Massage.
From my first session I quickly
became aware of Chris’s high level of skill, which is exemplary, e.g. knowledge
of anatomy and the impact of the muscle structures on the body’s mobility and
When Chris works with me he explains the specific treatment
process and always ensures I am in control. From the outset I have felt relaxed
and have total trust in the treatment I am receiving.
I have experienced treatments from a range of
practitioners, chiropractors, osteopaths, masseurs, however I never have
experienced such excellent treatment which is resulting in ongoing positive
"I've been a domiciliary foot-care practitioner for some 6 years. My work
involves a lot of bending forwards putting strain on the upper back and arms. I
have consequently suffered from severe pain and discomfort for almost 4 years
now. There are lots of people out there offering "cures". You name it
and I've tried it. But none of them really work.
I knew immediately I met Chris that he really understands the human
body; he treats the body as a whole and not just the part that hurts. The
treatment together with his advice has really helped. For example the pain in
my hands and wrists has been completely alleviated.
We're still working on the
other problems but each session seems to build steadily on what has already
been achieved and I'm able to continue working when at one time I thought I
would have to give up"
"I have to thank Chris for his amazing work, I'm really
more relaxed than I have been in a long time. I've been in so much pain for
years but particularly over the last few months.
Chris really takes the time to understand the emotional
aspects and works through the muscles with this in mind.
The difference after a
session has really changed my quality of life and frame of mind. It's more than
just a massage, his knowledge of anatomy and complex layers of the muscle
really make it feel like the treatment is tailored to you.
Thank you Chris for all the care and attention you put
into providing a professional and the most quality service I've ever had. Worth
every penny, I highly recommend a visit"
"I have been seeing Chris for some time now. I sought out his help as I have a back injury caused by osteoporosis and a resultant collapsed spine.
My back was becoming increasingly problematic with repeated muscle dysfunction which was stopping me from doing my work as a builder. Since seeing Chris the situation has improved and I feel more mobility in my back and more strength.
Chris is very knowledgeable and an excellent hands on massage therapist. I had had previous massage but only Chris seemed to be able to get to the deeper muscle tissue and get this flexible again.
I would certainly recommend Chris for injury massage.
He gives you a complete picture of what is going on without blinding you with knowledge, you get exercises to help your situation and he is very attentive to what you say. In addition I found him to be a really nice, positive bloke"
"I've been to Clifton Massage for a few treatments and I must say that I have received the best remedial massage that I have ever experienced.
I suffer from Ankylosing spondylitisand back pain is a common symptom of this. I've tried many osteopaths and chiropractors over the years, but nothing comes close to the results that Chris Wood at Clifton Massage achieves.
His understanding of the muscular system is truly amazing. I particularly like the way that he explains which muscles he's working on and why. My experience of this treatment has not only been outstanding but the results have been long lasting. Highly recommended"
"I had whiplash a few years ago and also had key hole surgery on my shoulder due to a recurring dislocation last year.
Prior to seeing Chris my movement range in my arm wasn't that great and I kept getting pains in and around my shoulder, my back kept locking up and my neck was quite sore.
I stumbled across the Clifton Massage site on the net, then seeing the qualifications and testimonials about Chris made me choose to go see him.
I'm glad I did because not one of the statements about him is false, if anything a couple maybe understatement! From day one I could feel the difference.
He started on my back and now 5 sessions later my back no longer locks up, my neck isn't as sore and best of all my shoulder doesn't feel so tight and can move freely.
I would recommend Chris to anyone, he has good techniques and with his history in sports he is very knowledgeable and is happy to give advice on workouts"
What can I say? "Chris is the ultimate professional. He took time establishing problems and general health and fitness through questioning and a survey, which made me feel at ease, that he really knew what he was doing.
I had tendinitis in the knee and had a build up of muscle tension in my calves and IT band from lots of running. He worked meticulously on these areas, applying enough pressure to know that he was really getting to grips with the problem, whilst the soft music made it a very relaxing experience.
I felt re-energised the next day and he also offered me lots of advice on exercises, stretches, and diet. I would certainly go back to Clifton Massage again!"
"Chris Wood has exceptional skills in deep tissue massage, together with an in-depth knowledge of how the body functions, which allows him to apply his time at every session to his client's exact needs.
A good feeling of wellbeing always occurs after a visit to his treatment room"
“One of the most skilled massages I've ever had.
I have long standing entrenched problems with the muscles throughout my body and Chris has been able to begin to turn this around for me. I am very grateful/relieved as I'd been giving up that anything could help.
He's taught me about my muscles and given me exercises to help me maintain and develop the improvements at home”

He can really help with chronic problems and is clearly very dedicated to his work. Chris has been helping me with tension in my neck and shoulders and lower back due to bad posture and desk working and has given me some really great stretches so I can help myself. I highly recommend!
Best sports massage l've ever had and consequently been seeing Chris regularly for the past couple of years. He's sorted out several muscular issues. I've already recommended him to many friends and colleagues, who have also had great experiences.
