On initially meeting her, she listened carefully to my complicated medical history and worked on areas that would help me. I have therefore built up trust and rapour, knowing she understands what my body needs and responds too. I feel the massage helps with my overall wellbeing, takes the tension and stress from my body and creates a sense of peace within. The relaxing music in the background is a nice touch and very much appreciated as it helps me to decompress very quickly.
I had my first deep tissue Raynor massage on Friday. It was fantastic. I would highly reccommend it!
Aside from the fact that the massage is thoughtful, almost bespoke and very good, Dave himself is a lovely guy who fully understands that members of the public, no matter what the spend or what their means are, want not only a good treatment but good service too. He even gave me a bottle of water at the end which was a lovely touch. Best massage of 2014 (i've had quite a few).
First type of this massage. It was a great mid way between a sports massage and therapeutic. Excellent effort to Keogh for trying to sort my back out. I'll definitely get some more sessions.
After suffering with a pinched nerve for weeks, I visited Dave's practice and after one session the pain went and I feel so much better. Excellent session with Keogh and very nice follow up message from Dave. Overall an excellent and professional service.
Sadly I was late so didn't have the full time but my massage with Keogh was brilliant. I felt spaced out afterwards and feel knot free. Will be back soon, on time and will recommend.
Professional (in a word) ... deep tissue massage. I'm a chef and suffer from back & arm pain with neck tendonitis .. Keogh pulled the muscles apart; relaxed them and despatched me to rejoin society as a human once again.
This was my first experience with Raynor massage, I was impressed with the fact that all muscle groups relevant to someone who runs were given attention, and with the way the neck muscle was done. Quite different from any other massage i have received.
Had my 1st deep tissue massage by Keo. I was a little nervous having never had one before and didn't know what to expect. Keo was extremely professional and friendly. I was made to feel very welcome and very relaxed pre & during the massage. Didn't realise how much tension and stress was in my body. Great service and will definitely be recommending this service to my friends. Thanks. Mark.
Great massage with Keogh, very relaxing and helped me feel de-stressed.
First time Raynor massage and first time with Keogh-it was great and just the right pressure. Was attracted by first timer offer but now will go back again.....I would recommend as I have weekly massages.
Fantastic deep tissue therapeutic massage with Keogh......Came out after feeling so much better and still feeling great a day after....would definitely recommend......x
Had my first session with Keogh and it was not only amazing the best Massage I have ever had. He was very professional and his advise was spot to. I would recommend it any day.
First session with Keogh yesterday, very intense but enjoyed it. Keogh is a lovely guy, very professional and considerate. Will be recommending to friends.
They managed to book me in for a last minute session today after I hurt my neck and it was amazing!! I left feeling much better, very sleepy, and could actually move my head without it hurting. Thank you!
Brilliant massage and excellent for sport. Difficult to find such great quality so will definitely be booking regularly :-)
Top notch massage from Dave really knows his stuff, provided excellent service will definitely recommend.
What an amazing experience! I initially went along to keep hubby company, but decided why not ;) and Im glad I did as this was the best deep tissue massage I've had ever! Felt amazing and really did the job, Thanks so much to Dave super friendly and really comfortable experience.
I had my first massage with Keogh yesterday, it was one of the best massages I've had. I will be recommending and going back.
Had my first visit to Dave yesterday hoping to help ease the pain in my lower back and leg that ive had for 6 months!!! Am amazed to say that today has been the first day in months that ive been almost pain free. Dave was friendly and explained everything about what he does and what to expect, he was chatty and put me at ease immediatley, I can't wait to visit again!!
Today's massage was great! I was informed on what the massage was for and how it would help me! I also got advice on how I should tackle my migraines. I felt very comfortable and strongly recommend it to everyone, even if there are no injuries involved you won't regret it :)
This place is incredible! They make you feel very comfortable and they are very professional. Came out of there feeling light as a feather and tension free! Please try to experince this great massage! I want you guys to feel as good as I did!
Never fail to feel completely relaxed (spaced out even) after one of Dave's massages. It's a complete all over body experience right down to your toes. And I like the constant interaction ensuring you get the best out of it. Thanks again.
My daughter has cerebral palsy since birth, which affects all her muscles. She only started to walk at the age of seven. All her movements lack co-ordination and her balance is insecure. Tania undergoes various therapies such as the Alexander Technique, holistic cranial massage, deep tissue massage, acupuncture and osteopathy. The therapies she finds help her most are the holistic cranial massage and deep tissue massage. She has to go to Central London for the cranial massage and until recently, North London for the deep tissue massage.
It’s so amazing to have found the Raynor Massage (combination of the cranial and deep tissue) with Dave so much nearer to home in Sutton, Surrey. My daughter is Dave’s first cerebral palsy client and he clearly did his research prior to her first appointment. The Raynor massage will definitely help to keep my daughter’s muscle tone more supple and improve her mobility. The massage we have had with Dave was genuinely one of the best we have encountered and I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a brilliant and professional massage treatment.
"Its so great to have an amazing deep tissue massage therapist so near to where I live in Epsom! I was having nasty tension problems with the back of my legs and arms and this form of deep tissue massage was brilliant in getting rid of it. My arms and legs are free of pain and I can't wait for my next treatment! Thanks so much!"
I have for a long time now suffered with neck and shoulder problems, mostly from old injuries I got during my work within West End Musical Theatre. I have used several methods to alleviate the pain prior to my Raynor Massage session with Dave in Sutton, London but none were as informative and relaxing as this technique. I can truly say I have felt muscles I have never felt before and in a most enlightening way. The strength of this massage and the absolute apparent affect it had on my body during and after was both strange and new to me, but definitely reached places others have not been able to match. I can only describe it as an awakening of nerve endings I had long given up on. It really helped relieve many months of pressure for me and that was after only one treatment! I am determined to carry on with further sessions with Dave as I now understand the principal of the Raynor Technique and felt an immediate relief of pain. In the long term I can also see this technique being wholly beneficial to my whole body and mind. A fantastic first experience. Thank you Dave!
"I recently had the pleasure to experience Dave Taylor's massage, and it was phenomenal! His touch is amazing, and he's very professional.
I must say I love the Raynor Massage technique, and how it just challenged every imbalance in my body. I walked out of my treatment feeling 5 years younger! I recommend Dave Taylor and his massage from the bottom of my heart!"
"I had my first experience of a Raynors Massage through Dave. It was great! I slept like a rock that night after the massage. I am an athlete with a few muscle pains from constant training, and this was a firm massage that really loosened up my muscles. I would really recommend Dave Taylor."
As a Chinese martial arts practitioner and part-time instructor, I often use deep tissue massage in order to remain supple and mobile. I have sampled many different massage styles from Western and Asian systems. This massage with Dave was genuinely one the best I have encountered. It provided a full body relaxation, relief of muscle tension and restored joint mobility. It is a very thorough system, which I would recommend to anyone in search of a great, professional massage treatment.
"I had my first massage with Dave Taylor in the clinic in Sutton yesterday. I'd had other massages in the past, but wow! This was different. Whilst the Raynor Massage technique cannot be described as anything other than 'intense', it is totally worth it. I feel significantly more relaxed, and less tense. I would honestly thoroughly recommend Raynor Massage to anyone considering such a massage."
After an impromptu visit to a small village in the Western Cape, South Africa I fell in love with the Raynor Massage Technique. I was fortunate enough to come across a therapist who introduced me to the treatment and when I returned to the UK I made it a mission to be able to find such an individual who would be able to provide a Raynor Massage in the Northern Hemisphere...
And to my joy I found Dave and I can say that my first massage with him was the best I have ever had. To put this into perspective, the therapist in South Africa who introduced me to the wonders of the technique trained with the Master himself, Brandon Raynor in Australia, thereafter in Cape Town with 10 years of experience in the field. His massage was fantastic and I am so grateful that he introduced me to Raynor Massage and I would thoroughly recommend him.
Dave, though provided therapy that truly identified exactly my areas of tension and worked extensively on them for a considerable period of time. He mapped out my tension lines with precision whilst providing a deep, releasing massage that was absolutely tremendous.
He is clearly an extremely gifted therapist and now being chosen by Brandon to teach the magical therapy in the UK he certainly lives up to that accolade. Those who will learn from him, will learn a wealth of skills and knowledge that are invaluable.
So I now count down the days until I return to see Dave in Sutton and for my body to feel the release of tension that it so desperately needs. Thank you Dave so much for your expertise and kindness. I am so grateful to have found you in Sutton "

“I trained as a Raynor Massage Therapist back in 2011 and was lucky enough to meet Dave on my course who stood in to teach for a while when the trainer had a home emergency. The course itself proved very insightful and it was interesting to gain a deeper understanding of how the body holds tension and how to release it. Since then I have had regular treatment from Dave and have to say what a difference it makes. I do a desk based job up in the city and typically carry a lot of tension in the shoulders and in the thoracic area. The day after my treatment my body feels a lot looser, I am sleeping a lot better but most noticeable of all is how much more energy I seem have after a Raynor massage. Thank you again!
I started seeing Dave Taylor in his clinic in Sutton in January 2013 after moving to London and became really interested in the benefits of Raynor Massage in the recovery process of training for an Ironman. I have always found regular sports massage important when training and racing hard for several months at a time but many sports massage therapists target a particular area and do not apply the pressure required. I am a huge fan of Raynor Massage as the technique targets the whole body and Dave can certainly apply enough pressure!!
Dave is great as he answers all of the questions I have about the technique and can always find the knots and tight muscles with amazing speed. I am certain that Dave and the Raynor Massage technique helped in my muscle recovery after training and racing, leading to better performances at races and ultimately helping me achieve my goal of a sub-ten hour Ironman triathlon.
I just wanted to say a big thank you for sorting out my painful shoulder today. To be honest I was expecting you to really hurt me but you were excellent and whilst it was a bit uncomfortable at times it is complete bliss now!!
I have spent a considerable amount of time and money over the past few years dealing with Issues in my back and sciatica. I used to visit a physiotherapist & pain specialist based in Bayswater, London on a weekly basis. After a while I had decided to give it a rest with the visits, even though I had experience all kinds of treatment it seemed nothing was working for me. To add to it the cost was becoming prohibitive. Eventually the pain got so great that I had to look into it again. Having done a local search on the Internet I came across Dave Taylor's very informative website. The Raynor Massage was new to me. I decided to give it ago. The introductory offer was enticing and I decided that I had little to lose and much to gain. I have since revisited Dave in Sutton about 7/8 times now. I have always found Dave to be very accommodating and able to fit me in at short notice. My Sciatica has virtually disappeared and my general lower back pain has eased considerably. It is all on my doorstep too! Win win. I am still careful, as I play a fair amount of bad Golf. My visits now tend to be more stress related. I can’t help but think that so many people would benefit from this type of massage. Thank You!
As a competitive powerlifter it is vitally important for me to be able to go into a competition with my body and mind feeling as relaxed and stress-free as possible. I went for a deep tissue masage session with Dave in Sutton just before my latest powerlifting competition, after a long and physically and mentally taxing training period. I was delighted with the results; I felt much looser and more relaxed in the week that followed, and went on to record several personal bests in the competition.
I have been living with an old injury in my lower back which requires regular MOT sessions. So far I have been using Osteopaths. A few months ago I started training really hard and eating healthy. Unfortunately, four weeks ago I pulled a muscle in my lower back which put me out of action completely for almost three weeks. My Osteopath fixed me up, however, due to the fact that I had been protecting the area my muscles in my lower back got extremely tight. This meant that the pain continued. I saw Dave's advert at the LA Fitness gym in Ewell and immediately booked an appointment. Dave saw me in the Sutton clinic at 6:15 pm on a Friday. The experience was AWESOME! I felt immediate relief. I think this was one of the best experiences I have ever had. I will be going back for more Raynor Massage on a regular basis. I have had other treatments done for various reasons but every time I felt like it was either not enough or something was missed. Dave's deep tissue massage treatment was spot on! Thanks Dave and see you again soon when you are back from the oil rig! :)
Having just returned from a rather strenuous rock climbing session in Wales I was very much in need of a deep tissue massage. I felt very positive and relaxed on the day after the massage but soon got quite tired and slept early and soundly. The next day I felt a bit down and lethargic, this, however soon wore off. I then went climbing about a week later and felt great!
I normally enjoy indoor training and feel enthusiastic but I was jumping at the walls like a child! The best part was that I was not consciously looking for any 'result' from the massage at the time and it just occurred to me that I was 'extraordinarily' energised' about half way through the training. All my muscles were working properly! After training I tried to work out why I had performed so much better than usual and the only difference that week had been the massage! I was planning to get some more 'energy' from you before I go walking for miles up to Ben Nevis! However, I will probably also need help to recover after my trip!
"Had both neck & upper back pain for a week which kept getting worse. Called up Dave on Saturday morning and luckily for me he had a cancelation and had a slot lined up a few hours later. The massage was intense and a lot of effort went into it and was very thorough. Already the next day I was back to 90% and 100% in 2 days time. Definitely recommend it!!"
After a busy start to the year with my husband and I both training for the London Marathon and then running it, along with all the stresses and strains life brings, it was great to find Dave Taylor's massage so close to home and even better to to be able to 'relax and unwind' with Dave's top to toe massaging technique. We both felt like the strain of life had been removed when we'd finished our sessions last night and to awake this morning feeling revitalised, well, neither of us can wait for another appointment. Fabulous first session offer and well worth every penny. Thanks Dave.
A few months ago I took up cycling and noticed that I had difficulty when turning my head to check out traffic behind me. I have always been to osteopaths to seek treatment for ailments such as this but after a treatment the problem remained. Then my dear friend Carol told me about the fantastic Raynor Massage she had with Dave Taylor in Sutton. Dave made sure I understood the techniques he uses before the treatment and afterwards I found I had more mobility in my back and it no longer felt like a solid spine; there is more flexibility and I definitely feel much better. So nowadays my first port of call is to Dave and not the osteopath as I feel that my body responds well to the deep tissue massage that he performs.
I was searching for deep tissue massage near to my area of Croydon and as a result I visited found Dave's website and booked an appointment. His approach was very thorough with a good explanation of his various techniques (not just deep tissue) and the linkage between mind and body. He then worked on my whole body and not only addressed the points of pain but ones that I was not aware of that were clearly linked! I have not had such an in-depth workover before where he was able to loosen muscles but also work deep on the hard knots. I had to drink loads of water afterwards given the amount of toxins released. I found him to be very talented and my visit helped me a lot, so i will be going back to see him in Sutton (maybe next time before I get the knots as prevention is normally better than cure) and also recommend him.
After years of playing rugby and attending the gym, it has suddenly all caught up with me! I visited Dave in Sutton as I could find no pain relief from traditional methods and needed something that would actual subside the pain for good.
I cannot speak more highly about Dave and his unique style of massage. After listening to my needs and identifying the problem areas Dave got to work. I have never felt so good and the pain has completely gone. I will continue to use his services weekly for now as I have no wish to go back to square 1, and I would reccommend his services to anyone!
I'm not quite sure how it happened but I seemed to have signed up for the London Marathon. I am certainly not a pro - athlete so am on quite a tough training regime. My poor muscles have been suffering badly from DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) and I was wondering if a deep tissue massage would help for my marathon training. A friend of mine recommended Dave Taylor in Sutton. I live in East London but decided to make the journey to Sutton. I am glad I did.
I was in quite a bit of pain and was nervous about the massage but Dave put me at ease from the instant I walked through the door of his (rather posh) clinic. The massage itself was intense and unlike any sports massage I have had before. It felt like Dave worked on every muscle from the top of my head down to my big toe! At times the massage was a bit sore, however, I felt in control of any pain and allowed the deep pressure to happen. I had full confidence in Dave throughout and it felt like he knew just how far to push it. What also impressed me was that he also managed to fit in some excellent leg stretches too. I was advised to take it easy for 24 hours after the massage and that night I slept like a baby! Dave warned I might be a little tender in places the next day and I was, but it was fine. It eased of quickly and I didn't mind at all as I felt so much looser as a result of the massage. The true reward was on my next marathon training session. Everything just worked better and the DOMS was so much easier to live with. So thanks Dave and I can't wait till my next session. If there are any runners in training for the marathon and is considering the help of therapeutic massage, my advice would be wherever you are, make the journey and see Dave.
