"I started having treatment with Alex in February 2011 when I tore my trapezius for some myofascial release. I am a competitive CrossFitter and this was just before our qualification season began so I needed to be fit enough to compete. Since then I have continued my treatment at Re-creation for various injuries and general maintenance. I have had deep tissue therapy, acupuncture, muscle activation, cupping and general massage from Alex, all of which helped me keep training and competing at a high standard."Sam Briggs; 1st place finish at the English Olympic Lifting Championship 2013 (58kg category) // 1st place finish at CrossFit London Throwdown 2013 & 2012 // 4th place finish at CrossFit World Games 2011 // 8th (25-29yrs) ITU World Duathlon Championships 2010 // Lightweight British Indoor Rowing Champion 2010 and 2009.

"Since knowing Alex and havin my bodywork with my posture has improved immensely, after having sports injury to my hips Alex's professional input has not only improved my hips but leaves me feeling they are 100% better. I no longer have pain and feel more flexible he has worked on exercise programmes for me which i do daily, I will continue to keep my treatment with Alex, I highly recommend all treatment from Alex Boylan." Callum Brady FCC Welterweight Champion

"I was introduced to Alex by a fellow Crossfitter. I was struggling with a shoulder injury, which was stopping me from training in the way I wanted. I had tried physios, Chiropractors, and sports massage. All gave temporary relief but the pain and stiffness quickly came back and the whole vicious circle would repeat itself. I had my first appointment with Alex, he used techniques I had not experienced from the other therapists and looked holistically for reasons/ causes etc. I can honestly say that after my first appointment my shoulder never regressed back to the state it had been in. It did take further appointments but I always felt I was making progress and importantly for me I could continue training. Since then Alex has sorted several pains, injuries, mobility issues for me. I no longer use physios or chiropractors, I do have regular sports massage to aid recovery but if I ever have injuries or issues that need more I book in with Alex. I travel from leeds to Manchester for appointments but know its always going to be worth it." Nicola Simpson (Pro Thai Boxing & Crossfit)

"Not sure what you did, whereas after 12 sessions of physio my SI joint problem was still there, after 4 sessions with you it is better. Thanks." Sue

"Whilst training for the Manchester 10K I developed severe pain in my shins and calves when I stepped up my training. I found Alex’s details online and decided I would give it a go. After three sessions the pain was gone and I completed the Manchester 10k in 1 hour 12 minutes and 57 seconds! Without these sessions with Alex I would either not have been able to compete, or I would have had to walk the entire distance." Jo

"I can't recommend 'Re-Creation Manchester' highly enough. I've been treated on a number of occasions for muscular problems and joint stiffness, and the staff are extremely professional, knowledgeable, friendly and discreet. In my case, as a martial artist, the Deep Tissue massage was a revelation, and I found my physical well-being and performance much improved"

"I woke one morning to find I could barely move my neck with a sharp pain down one side. I struggled on for nearly a week, not sleeping so well either and felt like I needed to do something more than just take pain killers. I did a search on the web and felt like Alex might be able to help me.

To say I was a little skeptical is an understatement when Alex put 2 needles in my hand and 2 in my foot and told me that my pain would soon be gone. Within a few minutes I could move my neck a little further and by the end of the appointment the pain had almost gone and then within an hour of leaving my neck felt almost normal! Not sure what happened but I’m very impressed and grateful to be back to normal."

"I had difficulty with a hip problem that would not resolve, walking any distance caused problems and I thought it would always be with me. I went to Alex for help with a totally unrelated back problem and the treatment he provided was effective and complete. Not only did he treat my back, the the hip problem was also found and dealt with and has never returned. Alex provides a warm welcome and comfortable environment. He inspires a sense of confidence in his clients, is enthusiastic and committed to providing appropriate treatment." Sue K

"I visited Re-Creation for stress and anxiety. Alex was both professional and empathetic as well as being knowledgable and a great therapist. 

The treatment was amazing with instant and ongoing results. I eagerly returned the following week for a second treatment.

The setting in which the therapy is carried out calm and relaxing and I would highly recommend Re-Creation for acupunture."

"I initially received acupuncture treatment from Alex a few years ago for stress, general aches and pains etc and was very impressed with the results. On a couple of occasions the relief from a painful shoulder was instantaneous. Having recently been extremely anxious over a recent problem with my vision and health problems preceding this, I contacted Alex again. Immediately following treatments, I found myself feeling less stressed and anxious and back to my usual self within a short time.

Alex has a holistic approach and includes advice on exercise and general well being and I would highly recommend Alex."
