After suffering from a stiff and tense shoulder I was trying to find someone locally who could help - I came across Jane's website and thought I would give it a go - best decision I could have made. After a couple of intense sessions and some of Jane's fab taping, my shoulder soon felt better - the dull nagging pain that leads to headaches was gone - great! I do quite a bit of keeping fit - general running, cycling, gym etc and I always suffer from various aches and niggles particularly down my left side and lower back - having discovered Jane, I realised how beneficial it was to actually see her regularly - she is great at pinpointing the exact problem and treating it effectively as well as giving me a general 'pummeling' as I call it. I would recommend everyone to have a regular session with Jane even if you have no specific problem - you will not believe how much better you feel (getting rid of all those toxins) and how much more supple your muscles feel. I recently did a trek to Jordan doing circa 100k in just over 4 days - I was amazed that I had no real muscle pain or strains and I put this down to being looked after by Jane - oh and by the way she is also a lovely, friendly person who is passionate wbout what she does.

I've run distances up to 95 miles in one go, but usually aim at multiple marathons or multiple ultras. I don't stretch or have sports massages, or should I say, I didn't used to stretch or have sports massages.
In May 2013 I attempted to run from Hyde to Bournemouth, a distance of approx 230 miles in six days. I didn't know Jane but she kindly offered her services to help me on my way!! Jane made me feel comfortable and did a thorough health screening, taking in to consideration major abdominal and thoracic surgery I had had, along with a stroke two and a half years earlier. She explained everything she was doing, the reason and hopeful outcome.
The work she did was amazing, my running became easier and recovery quicker. I'd always had issues with my calves, small tears and pulls, and two weeks prior to the event (due to my stupidity) I pulled my calf again. I could hardly walk and thought that a year of planning was down the drain. Jane worked her magic - massages, taping and ultra sound, she even came on the first day of the run and taped me up. She was on the end of the phone throughout the six days for advice and encouragement. I'm stubborn when it comes to challenges, but hand on heart, without Janes skills, help and advice, I wouldn't have finished that run. I can't recommend her highly enough.

Having struggled with a sacral joint problem and general tension in the back, neck and shoulder muscles for years and having had to attend many physio appointments I was advised that a regular sports massage would help. I had a first appointment with Jane towards the end of last year and found her to be extremely knowledgeable, her treatment extremely thorough with plenty of advice throughout the treatment and follow-up appointments. I felt better after the first appointment than I had done for a long time. I would not hesitate to recommend her.

After 5 years of shoulder pain seeing a chiropractor, an Osteopath and numerous physiotherapists costing many hundreds of pounds and not getting anywhere, I was put in touch with Jane.
Jane's knowledge and enthusiasm for her profession, her excellent communication skills and genuine determination to help people out of pain and suffering, made her stand out to me from other professionals that I visited. After only a couple of sessions a significant improvement to my condition was achieved, Jane was then able to prescribe shoulder exercises in order for me to continue the healing for myself and prevent a re-lapse.

I do alot of running, averaging about 30 miles a week and have over the years needed a good sports massage and rub to put me back together. Jane never fails to put me back together and rub any pain away. She is so knowledgeable, and has taught me alot about how the human body works. It is apparent she really cares about the treatment she gives you and gives 100% everytime.
I have run 3 marathons and after each one have been left with various aches and pains particularly on my back, each time I have run a marathon I have booked in with Jane after and she has fixed me, I have no doubt after my next marathon in April I will be seeing Jane 'magic hands' Murray again to massage me and tape me up to help me recover from the gruelling run.
I can not recommend Jane enough, and have indeed recommended her to many of my friends and family who also share the same opinion as me, she is brilliant and I would not see anyone else for sports therapy.

Jane is fantastic at getting me in tip top shape for racing and correcting the damage I seem to inflict upon myself whilst racing and training for ironman triathlon and quadrathlon. Jane has helped me exceed my expectation in races by giving me the confidence my body is in good shape.

I have had many sessions with Jane and each and everyone has been superb.
Jane is very thorough and extremely knowledgeable.
She has helped me on numerous occasions mainly for injury prevention for my running and recovery after a race. Highly recommended.

A few words on all the help you have given me over the years. I had been away from running for along time, but came back when was inspired to lose the office weight after I started in a predominantly desk job at 43. With that came a sudden weight gain, so I made an effort to change my eating and exercising routines. Running, cycling and swimming were all restarted but all brought breaks, sprains and niggles especially as I was carrying 30kg more than now. Jane first helped me with the rehabilitation from injuries (several times) but has since helped me by increase strengthening and flexibility. The thing about therapy I found to be most important was the maintenance visits, once a month, keeps all but the niggles away, and these are soon dealt with before becoming chronic issues. Thanks Jane

I had an appointment with Jane as I had been struggling with tension in my back, neck and shoulders.
Jane is committed to addressing the root cause of problems and treating them quickly and effectively. Her treatment was very thorough and she offered detailed explanations and advice throughout the session. Even after the first treatment, the results were amazing.
I can say Jane undertakes her work with the utmost professionalism and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her services.

I have found Jane to be very informative from the numerous visits I have had. I always come away knowing how I've injured myself and what further exercises I may need to do to assist my recovery. The service is excellent value for money and because of this I do not hesitate in recommending her to anyone.

I first meet Jane Murray through a mutual friend of ours. He is a successful Personal Trainer in the physical health industry, so a recommendation from him saw me making an appointment straight away.
Upon meeting Jane we hit it off straight away. With her quirky scene of humor and beaming smile she got to work on my bad leg.
I called it pleasure and pain cos it's not just a nice massage but she has a way of making you laugh while she digs her elbows deep into the problem area, hence the pain part.
I had many follow up visits and not all of them because I needed them. In fact I found them very relaxing, after she had got the pain bit out if the way. As events have unfolded I found myself going into hospital for surgery of a quite different nature. But Jane didn't turn her back on me and say there's nothing more I can do. She knew more about my surgery than I did. Jane gave me lots of advice about the importance of pre hab - which has helped me not only keep my fitness up and stress levels down but has helped my recovery enormously. She had gone and researched every little detail from recommending a top surgeon to sorting my prehab program, putting my mind at ease and putting a smile back on my face. I cannot recommend this girl highly enough and a true friendship has come out of a singe recommendation. If you have a sports injury, a bad back, foot or arm, want injury prevention or just a massage give her a call, you won't regret it.

Jane was recommended by two friends who had benefitted from Jane's physio and advice. Jane is really knowledgeable regarding bone structure and stretches that will aid recovery. The sports massages have supported my running and I feel made me stronger. Jane is friendly and I have felt comfortable at ease during my visits. Jane is very person centred and is very interested in the person and supports personal challenges. It's my challenge this year to run my first marathon and I feel with Jane's physio support, knowledge and encouragement I will achieve this goal. I would highly recommend Jane as a sports physio.
