“I’ve had recurring back issues for 30 years and put my back out while chopping wood just before a holiday trip. After two treatments with Zaka I was well enough to go horse riding on my holidays. Zaka has an incredible understanding of the human musculature and how to heal it . I would recommend him to anybody.”  Jim Alexander, IT expert, Canada, March 2021.

“I work in a high pressured environment doing too many hours for my own good at a keyboard. I have relied on Zaka for years to keep me in good shape and to help me recover from specific injuries, he’s also good at massaging for general stress relief. He is excellent at applying both relaxing and deep massage, and knows just how to deal with each challenge. He has a very friendly and approachable manner which makes the sessions fly by. I highly recommend him.” David H., Manager – Fund Finance – AIS at Investment Bank, 2019

“A colleague recommended I visit Zaka after months of physio treatment failed to cure painful tendonitis.  After three treatments the pain disappeared and has not returned.  I now see Zaka every month to keep aches and pains at bay.  He is, without doubt, the best massage therapist I have visited and I would have no hesitation in recommending him”                                              Lucy S. Marketing Manager at Investment Bank, 2018

“Having had many different types of massage over the years, and having been a sports/massage therapist in the past, I can’t recommend Zaka highly enough. He used several techniques including acupressure, deep tissue, some Indian Head Massage and finished off with a few minutes of Reiki. Zaka worked on my frozen shoulder, neck, back and hip problems and covered some areas that the physio hadn’t.”
Jacqueline Lawrenson,  PA at Investment Bank, 2017

“I’d been struggling with gradually worsening back pain for about 2 months when the whole thing seized up and I was suddenly in a lot of pain. After 2 sessions with Zaka, my back was pretty much back to normal. He is very intuitive, knowledgeable and clearly very skilled at what he does. As well as helping with the pain, he had good advice on how to avoid future problems. I have no hesitation recommending Zaka, and, if pain were to return, I know who to call.”
Ian Douglas, University Lecturer, 2016

“Zaka is a fantastic practitioner. I’ve had many people try to work on my back but no-one is as strong and accomplished as him. He really knows his stuff. He’s a genius!”
Ruby Wax, Comedian, 2015

“That was amazing. Relaxing right from the start to the end. Highly recommended”.
 Jonathan Jee, HR Director, Fairtrade Foundation, 2015

“Massage with Zaka was my second experience at massaging. He was very professional and conscious of what I needed. Great attention to detail, great massage and a great all round experience. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Zaka’s massage service.”
Tunji Makanji, Finance Manager, Fairtrade Foundation, 2015

“Zaka is amazing, he has been massaging me since I started training in January for the London marathon in April 2015. He can always find the problem and make it feel a whole lot better!!!”
Victoria Alexander, Finance Department, Fairtrade Foundation, 2015

“I’ve had massages with Zaka over the last 14 years or so and have always found them very beneficial. He does excellent work and really takes the trouble to connect with the client and find out what will work best in any situation and with any particular problem.”
Jessica Abrahams, Yoga and Dance Teacher, 2015

“Zaka has been massaging me for more than 5 years. He works wonders on my whole well being.”
Reuben Mariathasan, Owner of Global Tribe, New Age Shop, Leeds, 2015
