I have had treatments with Alex on and off for 5 years. He is a wonderfully Knowledgable and experienced therapist and I would recommend him to anyone.

Alex's Turner's shiatsu's are 'en pointe'. Maybe because he's an acupuncturist as well, his treatments are clear, focussed and precise at the same time as giving me the feeling I'm being taken care of. He knows exactly what needs work and I always leave feeling nourished and restored. You know you are in safe hands with Alex.
