I was hugely sceptical about massage having had two in my life because, whilst they were pleasant, they left no lasting effect other than lightning my wallet and me thinking " what was the point of that?". Then I crossed paths with Lori who told me that, when training, she had sought out a deeper, longer lasting effect and found it in Raynor Massage. Lori carefully asked me how strong I would like it and off we went. Lori may look petite and ladylike, BOY is she effective though, like a human foam roller. I went in like Quasimodo and came out like Elastigirl and crucially I had no idea I was so tense, that my muscles were so inhibited in their movement, I thought I was fine. The joy and astonishment when I got home at how every movement to reach to pick something up or bend, twist or turn now felt supple, fluid and graceful. It was like my body went to Lori experiencing life in black and white and came out in Technicolour. A wonderful experience which I cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you so much Lori, you are now part of my monthly self-care routine.
I booked the massage due to injuring my back whilst playing golf, after the massage my back felt like new and I felt no further pain and it also improved my next round. Lori was amazing and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone that suffers pain or discomfort whilst performing any activity.
I regularly have Raynor deep tissue massage done by Lori and would say she gives the best massages that I have experienced. I often have knots in my shoulders and back when I turn up for my appointments and Lori does a great job of finding these and working them out, whilst still managing to give attention to the rest of my body. I always come out of a session feeling completely relaxed. I highly recommend Raynor deep tissue massage with Lori. Thank you, I will be back for more!
As life in general and running long distances in particular takes a lot out of the body it is important to ensure that the body recovers properly. A deep tissue massage with Lori is the perfect way to prepare for and to recover from running and promote overall well-being. Lori takes great care to ensure that the massage meets your needs and she has always provided me with an excellent service. I would not hesitate in recommending Lori of Studio 7 to others.
I promised myself when my very busy period was over, after Chinese New Year, I would treat myself to Craniosacral Therapy to give myself back some energy, make sure I was balanced and to make sure I took time for some deep relaxation. This was certainly achieved with Lori – she really knows her stuff and understands how we work and how we need to be in tune with the elements of the universe that work on the same principles. I had the best night’s sleep after this therapy and continue to sleep more deeply. I actually think I am now addicted and am already thinking about scheduling in my next appointment. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lori for this therapy.
I sent my husband to Lori so that she could look at and massage his back. It was extremely painful and felt like a trapped nerve or something similar. He is notorious for never doing anything about this kind of pain but it was obviously getting worse so Lori stepped into the fray. He came back from his appointment saying that it felt better even though it was still a bit painful but two days later he admitted he was pain free and feeling great. I can completely recommend Lori - my husband is a difficult patient and she looked after him really well and fixed whatever was wrong with his back!
I couldn't recommend Lori more. Not only do I trust the Raynor technique fully, I also trust in Lori. She is personable, warm and above all professional. She is incredible and I leave feeling truly relaxed and "worked on". I've even been known to say "I feel like I'm walking on a cloud" after my 2 hour sessions with her. I can't thank you enough Lori. If you are contemplating it, just go and see what I've been talking about!
This letter is to thank you for an excellent massage session just before Christmas. Firstly, I was very grateful you made such an effort to accomodate me on very short notice, during one of the busiest times for all of us. Despite this, the session never felt rushed, it was as relaxing as I remember it from my first treatment in 2017. Pain had spread up my back, so not only did my lower back hurt, but everything else as well, right up to my shoulders. I could hardly sit and stand. Again, I was impressed by the marked improvement by the time the session ended, I felt relaxed, refreshed and invigorated. Not only did the massage release a lot of tension in the body, it allowed me to relax and refocus my mind. Thank you!
I visited Lori today for my regular deep tissue massage, I arrived stressed and shocked about an incident that happened on my way, and to be honest I was a little depressed. After my massage and some friendly chat, it was as if my cares had floated away with my tense torso. I can highly recommend Lori's healing hands, she allows plenty of time, you are never rushed and she really knows how to iron out those crunchy, knotted muscles. Thank you Lori
I had a Raynor deep tissue massage from Lori recently and can I just say "WOW". I went in feeling like a slab of grumpy concrete, my neck and shoulders had been giving me trouble for about a week and I kept getting tension headaches. During the session Lori made sure I was comfortable and warm enough. She massaged me from toe to head and she even found tension in my jaw and massaged that out too. Lori is just incredible, she is thorough and pays great attention to detail. I've been to many places, experienced several types of massage and I'd pick Lori over them any day. I am a client for life! When I came out I felt like I was floating and since then I've been in a fantastic mood. I feel that Lori has reconnected my mind, body and spirit. My next session is already booked! Thank you so much!
I'm not really sure what made me book a session for Craniosacral Therapy with Lori at Studio 7, but I'm very glad I did. I hadn't heard of it before but I was feeling stressed and in need of someone to help put me back together. As a single Mum of two, with a busy business to run I was feeling like I had run out of energy and didn't feel myself. Lori was amazing and very talented. She was able to put me at ease very quickly. I'm not sure how the therapy works but her touch identified areas of my body that seemed to be fizzing and unsettled and during the session I could feel them calming down until I felt completely rested, which I haven't felt in a very long time. I have my next session booked and can't wait. It feels like a treat for my body and mind. Heaven!
I would just like to thank Lori at Studio 7 for the pregnancy massage she gave me. I was heavily pregnant and really needed some pampering. From the moment I arrived Lori made me feel completely at ease and the massage was the best I have ever had. I found the whole experience so relaxing and really helped to ease a lot of tension. I would recommend the services of Studio 7 Therapies to anyone.
