Roni - brings 15 years of know-how


Re: Roni Pearl, Massage Therapist – Jane Harris Massage Therapy
To whom this may concern

My name is Darren Farrow, I have been Nationally and Internationally competitive in Bodybuilding, Strongman, Highland Games and Powerlifting over the past 28 years.
I have worked with numerous Masseur’s throughout the years seeking deep tissue massage as I understand the relevance and importance frequent massage plays in the recovery process.
In September of this year, I was introduced to Roni at Jane Harris Massage Therapy as I had requested deep tissue massage and he had been recommended due to his experience in this technique.
Roni is an easy-going person who is client focused and listens to what ailments I have at the time. He analyses the issue and works on the relevant muscle groups to remedy the complaint.
Roni enjoys and takes pride in his chosen profession; he is an interesting character who has experienced quite a lot of travelling, adventure and continues to partake in outdoor activities in his own time. Roni is easy to talk to and I find our conversations interesting and humorous.

At this stage I continue to receive Roni’s deep tissue massage services every 3-weeks to ensure any problematic areas are treated and to compliment recovery from intense training.
In closing, I give Roni a big thumbs up and highly recommend him as an excellent Massage Therapists for those that are in search of a purposeful and results driven deep tissue massage.

Kind regards

Recommendation for Roni Pearl
To whom it may concern,

I met Roni through Jane Harris
Massage Clinic which I attended after making a decision that
I needed to take some time for self-care and address my ongoing issues with migraines and neck pain. Roni has helped me immensely, after several sessions I can honestly say that I have been pain free now for a couple of months. He listens, treats and gives advice so that you can take an active part in your own care. He has a wide ranging knowledge in both the physical and psychological components of treatment. He is interested I you as a whole person and provides new ideas and therapeutic recommendations.

I would recommend him to anyone who has long standing musculoskeletal issues and/or is looking for a truly gifted therapist.

A testimonial for Roni as a massage therapist

I started visiting Roni for back/shoulder pain which was as a result of an desk bound job, too much sitting.
He helped immensely via deep tissue massage every couple of weeks.
I then continued to see Roni once the problem had resolved as I started running and was having pain in my feet and achilles.

Roni was very thorough and we worked through different solutions to find what improved the pain.
I would recommend Roni for sports injuries and deep tissue massage. He is very good at what he does and gets results.

It gives me great pleasure to write this testimonial for Roni Pearl.

Two years ago, at the suggestion of a Sports Physician, I sought therapeutic massage treatment for a torn gluteus medius muscle and chronic back pain.

Fortuitously for me, Roni was the therapist available, and he has continued to treat me regularly ever since.

The problem has not been intractable - but almost. Through a combination of targeted deep tissue massage from Roni and stretching and exercising on my part, I have achieved what seemed impossible. My life is now largely pain free and I can exercise normally.

Without Roni’s determination and skilled care, plus his constant encouragement, this would not have happened.

I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Recommendation for Masseur Roni Pearl

I have been seeing Roni for a almost a year for my monthly maintenance sports massage.
I am an avid exerciser who runs, cycles, walks, swims, and cross trains and so injury prevention is hugely important to me and Roni understands this.At the start of each appointment, he asks what needs working on but is often my IT band and hip.

Roni’s massages are deep and exactly what I require to reset my muscles ready for the next months exercise regime.I believe sports massages should be part of all runner’s routines and always recommending them to go see Roni.

These massages are not for pleasure but ensure that any knots and tightness in my muscles are eased.

Also Roni and I have some very interesting conversations and I always learn something new from him!
