You'll feel no pain after a massage from Ben. I came out feeling drifty and tranquil and altogether in a better place. Highly recommended.

As a birthday present to me from me, I treated myself to a 90 minute Swedish massage and it was absolutely wonderful. The aches and pains I have become accustomed to from working at a desk all day were completely relieved, and I left feeling relaxed and refreshed. Ben couldn't have been better - warm, welcoming and a skilled masseuse - and the setting was clean, comfortable and quiet. I will definitely be back!

I'm a typical Londoner. I want things, I buy things. Done. It's all about instant gratification. The fact that I'm prepared to wait six months for a massage session with Ben proves what a wonderful therapist he is - if he was anything less than perfect, I'd have found a replacement by now. I am delighted that Ben is back in London again because my aching muscles have really missed him! You may be able to get a slightly cheaper massage elsewhere, but you won't find one where the therapist uses the same skilful technique and that's what makes BodyWorks, Fitness & Massage Therapy value for money. You get results.

Ben is the only massage therapist I've come across who can make an intense deep tissue massage feel relaxing, whilst also working out knots. He works from home and I know some people do prefer traditional spa environments, but believe me, when Ben is working on your muscles, you'll realise how unimportant the location is to the treatment.

Wholeheartedly recommend Ben and BodyWorks, Fitness & Massage Therapy!

Thank you so much Shona! As always, a pleasure to see you; it is clients like you who make being back at work after my sabbatical so much easier!

I have been a regular of Ben's for a few years now i think (how time flies!). I have thoroughly enjoyed and benefitted from every visit.

I usually have an Indian Head Massage and full body massage, and every time i leave i feel as though Ben has managed to 'iron me out'. I feel rested, pampered and (almost) 21 again! I once had a facial as well, which was perfectly executed and made me look as though i actually sleep sometimes, which as a terrible sleeper was no small achievement!

He operates from his very warm and tidy flat, which sounded unusual at first, but it works perfectly, and the flat is always clean and welcoming. I once had a pre-treatment shower, and found his bathroom as sparkling and pleasant as my own. The treatment room is warm, comfortable and fit-to-purpose.

Ben himself is very friendly, and very much comfortable in his own skin. Always a comfort when you're about to strip to your pants in front of a stranger! He is always very clean and presentable, from styled quiff to pedicured toe, and very definitely knows what he is doing.

I recommend him wholeheartedly, and look forward to my next visit.

I have been visiting Ben regularly over the last 6 months and I have always had amazing treatments. Ben is a professional therapist who knows what he is doing. He is very friendly and caring. I always go for Deep Tissue massage and leave his place as completely a new person. I would recommend him to anyone!!!

The facial treatment was great! Ben is very professional, nice and makes you feel comfortable and relax as soon as you arrive. The products he uses are amazing, 100% natural and with wondeful fragrances. The music was very relaxing and the overall ambiance also. I would definitely recommend him!

Ben is a great therapist and the deep tissue massage was spot on. Don't be nervous about the massage taking place in a private flat, it just add to the cosiness of the whole thing :) Will be back!

Following a particularly stressful few weeks, I could barely move my neck and my shoulders were in a whole world of pain. After one session with Ben, I found myself once again able to move like a normal human being. Sometimes with deep tissue massage it can take a few days to really feel the effects, but this was instant pain relief; he managed to work out all the troublesome knots which had been making life fairly miserable.

With Ben, you know he'll identify the problem and fix it, applying firm enough pressure to get results. I can't recommend Ben enough, it's always worth carving out enough time in your diary for a full 90 minute session.

Ben is a friendly and interesting guy who makes you feel welcome from the word go. And he's an excellent masseur with plenty of expertise and versatility. Warmly recommended!

I had a really good deep tissue massage that sorted out all of the knots in my back and shoulders. Ben is a really friendly guy and really knows what he's doing. I'd definitely visit again.

Hi, the actual head massage was great but I was taken back by it being in someones flat. I guess I wasnt expecting this as it never stated it. If you want a good head massage and you dont mind this then go for it as the actual treatment was good.

Hi Angela, thanks for your comments and glad that treatment was OK for you :-)

I must point out that it does state in the overview on here that I work from my home studio and that past reviewers have also commented to say that I work from my apartment - I prefer to keep my therapies personal, and feel that working from a more 'commercial' environment takes away from that; I certainly would not be able to keep my prices so low if I was working from commercial space!

Thanks for your feedback :)

Ben is friendly, professional and most importantly, very good at what he does. I had an Indian head massage and after a stressful day, left his flat floating on air. The appointment does take place in a private apartment, but it's a convenient and safe location. Bit surprised by the negative review, but there's always an exception to prove the rule, so don't let this put you off. Highly recommended. I'll be back very soon!

It was supposed to be one hour it was not more than 35 minutes.
It did not warn you that this took place in someone's private home until you has made the purchase and could not cancel.

Having a private session unplanned in someone's private home on their private sofa was apalling to hear. There was not even a massage table.
Be aware before you book!

Not happy at all.

Sorry to hear that you were not happy with this treatment; I apologise for the short treatment time - The treatment is only meant to last 40 - 45 minutes so that is an error on my part and I will rectify this problem on my booking system.

However I feel your criticism on this being at my apartment is somewhat unfair - it states in the second paragraph of text on the overview here that 'We provide clients with a professional massage service, working from a fully equipped home studio in the heart of leafy North West London'. It clearly states that I work from my home studio, and I send out a confirmation text to make sure that each client is aware that I work from my home. I also have other reviews that state that I work from home, so I am somewhat shocked to find that this surprised you.

There is a massage table here, it was not set up as for a traditional Champissage session the client should be seated upright. I am sorry to hear that your partner was dissatisfied with the treatment, and feel that something should have been said during or after the treatment to avoid this situation? If you were unhappy with it taking place at my apartment you should have said initially and we could have refunded you before the appointment took place.
