I had a wonderful experience with James. I booked in as I was suffering from lower back pain. Not only did he ease the aches he gave some exercises to help remove the cause of the pain in the first place. I would book again if necessary.
Came across James + Willow and Water on Grabone. He honoured the expired voucher (due to lockdown) and was very easy to talk to and flexible with booking time, treatment, and areas of my body that were sore due to exercise. Will book again!
It was a while ago (before lockdown), but James treated my upper back for muscle pain experienced from long days seated at a desk. Very explanatory, very understanding and ultimately very effective. Great smelling products too!
What a great discovery! James is a professional, polite English gentlemen who makes you feel comfortable and at ease from the moment you meet him. His in home massage service is so convenient. James is very skilled and his gentle manner helps you to relax. He also gave me exercise suggestions to develop and strengthen muscles that will improve my posture. I will definitely be seeing James again in the near future.
James at Willow and Water was professional, knowledgeable and great value for money for a 60 minute massage. He individualised my massage by focussing on the areas that were giving me aches and pains and got rid of some stubborn knots in neck/shoulder area. The salon was clean and welcoming. James was also able to recommend strategies to reduce further aches. I would definitely recommend him.
I bought my son a gift voucher for a full body massage for his birthday. James was very professional to deal with, and all emails were dealt with extremely promptly.
My son has just reported back after his massage and had nothing but praise for James and his work, I'm sure he will be going back. The premises is also very conveniently placed for people on the North Shore. Definitely a 5 star recommendation!
James you are wonderful.
I been seeing you for the past 6 weeks.
You are attentive and listen to my aches and pains, literally.
My neck pain has gone. My body tension has gone.
I feel rejuvenated, rested and look forward to my next appointment as I walk out the door.
If anyone is looking for someone to help with body aches, James is your go to person. You will not be disappointed.
Thank you James.
Amazing, affordable massages here. Very knowledgeable and a great bloke too. Recommended to many friends already. 10/10
Had a sports massage with James. He was very informative and professional. Found out where my specific pains and imbalances are, told me why they were like that and what I specifically needed to do to fix them. Helped to work out some knots. Very happy with the service, would definitely recommend
What a hidden gem James is! He is very professional with a gentle and friendly manner, highly skilled and trained in his craft in England, an absolute pleasure to deal with, AND is incredible value for money. Very strong for deep tissue massages and also very gentle for relaxation. He is still building his business and I am sure he will do well, will be back !
Really good massage; the man knows his stuff! Gives great advice for sports stretching and a firm understanding of bio mechanics. Not only do I get a good massage but educated each visit. Would recommend!
James has the hands of a magician… I will recommend water and willow to everyone I know! Thanks James, absolutely fantastic!
Highly recommend! A+++
Healing strong therapeutic hands by James.
James is lovely. I was very late to my appt and he was very nice about it, didn’t make me feel bad about it. He was very accommodating and informative and I left feeling really relaxed. Have already rebooked and will be telling all my friends about Willow and Water. For reference- the love to on is next to Unichem up the stairs at the Northcote Shops. :)
For the best massage you will not beat Willow and Water in Northcote currently only $48 for an hour but soon and still ridiculously cheap $58. Amazing, I highly recommend.
Excellent, really enjoyed the massage, very professional service. Will book again soon.
I have been seeing James for a couple of months now and have found that I am regaining mobility and am not in constant pain anymore. This is an amazing change for me as I have been suffering from chronic pain for over 10 years! Recently he worked on me, and noticed that my lower back was quite inflamed and asked if I had done anything to cause it. I recalled that I had slipped in the bath and realised that I may have hurt my back by doing this. The following week I had it attended to by my chiropractor, and am now recovered - with many thanks to James for pointing out that something was wrong. He really is one of the best massage therapists I've experienced - I highly recommend him!
Great treatment, looking forward to returning.
James is very good at his profession as well as polite & friendly . My body feels so much more relaxed post massage. Highly recommend.
James was extremely professional when giving me a massage. He was clearly knowledgeable and sensitive to where I was holding tension and which weakness in the muscles it corresponded to. He also suggested exercises to help strengthen these weaker muscles. I found the massage relaxing and thorough. Thank you James
This was my first massage at Wilow and Water and I will be returning. An excellent professional who is aware of how to provide a great massage... thank you.
James is extremely professional and knowledgeable. The decrease in the aches and pains and improved mobility has made me a regular customer- thank you
