I've had several messages with Mattea during my first pregnancy and they've all been wonderful - she is knowledgeable, caring and always keen to tailor her treatments to my needs. She also combines CT and massage which I've found to be very relaxing and beneficial. I would highly recommend her especially to any expectant mums!

I had the most fantastic craniosacral treatment with Mattea last weekend. She quickly identified various niggles I\'d been experiencing and really helped ease the stiffness and pain in my lower back and hip. The treatment was profoundly relaxing and re-energising at the same time, and I have slept much better this week. Mattea has such a gentle, calm manner too, which adds to the relaxing experience. Highly recommended!
Thanks Caroline, I will pass on your kind words to Mattea.

I regularly have Bowen therapy and Indian Head massage with Mattea. Mattea is a very lovely and calming person. I always leave her feeling more relaxed than I’ve ever felt. The Bowen therapy has helped me treat the symptoms of an old injury in my neck as it has made such a difference. The massage gets rid of all the tight spots on my back and neck and leaves me feeling like a new person.

Mattea has treated me for a number of years and really is a magician! I came to see Mattea on Sunday to help me with persistent lower back and leg pain, as well as a general sense of being "out of sorts" and lacking energy. She is immensely intuitive and very skilled at establishing what the most effective treatment or combination of approaches will be - in this case, a combination of hands-on massage with powerful cranio-sacral therapy straightened out my back, relieved the pain and gave me a much-needed energy boost. She has a wonderfully sympathetic and gentle manner. Many thanks Mattea!

This is a review on behalf of my friend from the US who makes a point of having a massage with Mattea each time she visits with me. She loves the experience, which is always the perfect end to an (often hectic) visit to London, with lots of work appointments and meetings. Mind you, I have always enjoyed my massage sessions with Mattea as well, I recommended her in the first place. I really must treat myself again ...
