Amazing massage every time. Especially with all the knots I have in my back he makes me feel relaxed.

I have used Ferhat since 2016 when I had an accident, his location and venue is perfect. Ferhat knew exactly how to make me feel at ease with his consultation. He is very professional but at the same time makes you feel welcome with a friendly attitude. I would 100% use Ferhat again, I have tried many others around the country as I travel but he is still the best. Thank you Ferhat.

I am so lucky to have found Ferhat. No other masseur I've been to in the past has been able to unlock the tense muscles in my back in the same way, giving me relief from discomfort and greater mobility. He also gives great advice about how to stop the same tension arising again - although I'm not always that good at following it!

Ferhat is the best Masseuse I’ve ever experienced. He’s professional and put me at ease very quickly. I had suffered with stiff legs for 3 years and no professional could analyse why I was having pronlems. After my sessions with Ferhat, I have improved far beyond I could ever have imagined. I could highly recommend Ferhat he’s a true professional who is an expert in his field. I cannot thank Ferhat enough for getting my legs back to how they felt pre-pregnancy. Thank you.

I am a new client to Ferhat's Kneadme Massage. After just a few sessions, I am experiencing relief from tense back muscle pain due to decades of office work on a computer aggravated by an old yoga injury. I have been going to massage therapies for many years and was looking for more than a spa massage experience. Ferhat knows his anatomy and provided me with a framework of sessions as well as movement exercises to set me back on track to feeling good again! Ferhat is "salt of the earth", has a fundamental goodness of a true healer. Thank you, Ferhat!

Ferhat is the best massage therapist around. I originally visited him regularly for severe tension and back pain 4 years ago, but he has relieved almost all my problems and I now visit him ad hoc for minor niggles. He is extremely knowledgeable and I am amazed at how much better I always feel after each treatment. I have recommended him to everyone I know with problems and he has helped them all.

Chillie said on Apr 25, 2018 2:33 PM

I just want to thank farhat for helping and curing me through my extreme fatigue and knee injury!! There is no better masseuse to work miracles!! Thank you farhat!!!!!!!

I have been receiving a regular massage from Fermat for some weeks now after being recommended to him by my neurologist. I have been helped enormously with the symptoms of my long term condition. I have to say I was amazed by the results and have been recommending him to anyone I meet who may need his help. The therapy has enabled me to move better and to feel more in control of my situation. I am extremely grateful to him.

I have had a frozen shoulder for over 6months. Doctors prescribed referral to the Muscular Skeletal Department for scanning, steroid injection in the shoulder followed by Physiotherapy. I have suffered for those 6months with pain and lack of sleep due to the fact that that medical referral never happened. I was so desperate i decided to get a professional masseuse to help. Ferhat was so knowledgeable and professional. His effort has helped me ease the severe pains that I was suffering. I will recommend Knead Me massage to all as a very good practice. One of the best in Oxford.

Heidi T said on Jan 17, 2018 4:01 PM

Since having massage therapy with Ferhat over the past few months I have been in much less pain with my muscle disease and have also stopped getting the awful headaches from the muscle tension in my neck. I would highly recommend this skilled professional as he also puts you at ease list he skilfully massages away life knots!!As a bonus the calming environment with the beautiful aromas and heated massage couch just make it even better!Thank you Ferhat!

Helen said on Jan 8, 2018 9:46 PM

I highly recommend Knead Me. Ferhat is the best massage therapist I have found anywhere. Because of his knowledge and experience his massages are always tailored to my current situation and are therapeutic and relaxing. Thank you Ferhat !

Sushila Dhall said on Jan 5, 2018 6:05 PM

I suffered excruciating pain in my shoulders from muscle tension, which caused me regular headaches all over my scalp and brow. Ferhat released the tension in the knots under my shoulder blades and in my neck with his strong professional hands. I am now pain free. He is the first person I recommend to anyone suffering muscle tension, and I go to him regularly for a massage to keep myself pain-free.

Cinderella L said on Jan 5, 2018 6:00 PM

Ferhat is amazingly good at relieving muscle tension and knots. I have developed extremely painful neck and shoulders through years of carrying a heavy school bag, and Ferhat's massage therapy is one of the few things that has helped it. I would very much recommend Knead Me!

JACK WASTIE said on Jan 13, 2017 4:31 PM

Ferhat has always helped me considerably. His expertese has kept me mobile and has helped with pain releif. His knowledge is unbelievable he is kind and considerate and explains everything he does. I would recommend him all the time. Thank you Ferhat.

Lisa said on Feb 24, 2014 7:08 PM

From my first appointment with Ferhat, I knew he was a step above the other massage therapists I’ve seen. They provided temporary relief from tension but no long-term results for my bad back and shoulders.The difference is that Ferhat is goal-oriented; treatments are all about real progress in improving my health. He’s provided me with an exercise routine that complements his treatments. It’s not just about losing tension; it’s about building strength where I need it to stabilize my joints and correct my posture. And it’s working. I’ve experienced a steady, gradual improvement in a problem that has plagued me for over a decade. When I see Ferhat I’m excited to show him the mobility I’ve gained back. It’s improved my productivity at work and I’m in less pain! As for the massage, he’s got a surgeon’s fingers – he finds just the spot, and I'm always amazed at how much better I feel after each massage. I would highly recommend him to anyone as long as he still has time to see me. Thank you Ferhat!

John said on Feb 19, 2014 8:46 PM

I have had chronic upper back pain following a car accident ten years ago. Since then, I have tried many treatment modalities with minimal success. After 4 weeks of weekly massage treatments with Ferhat and a stretching program that he designed for me, I am completely pain free for the first time in years. Thank you Ferhat!

Erica said on Dec 7, 2013 7:25 PM

I first visited Ferhat because of running-related injuries a year ago. He not only provided massages that helped to fix the problem, but he also explained what was causing problems and gave useful advice. His massages are outstanding - I've tried various massage therapists here and abroad, but he knows muscles and how to treat them better than I've experienced anywhere else. I highly recommend his services, particularly for athletes.

Alex said on Nov 19, 2013 7:15 PM

I recently went to Knead me Massage Clinic, recommended by my friend who had an injury that Ferhat sorted out. I suffer with migraines which come from the tension in my neck and shoulders. Ferhat was professional and got right down to the cause of the problem. I would recommend to any one who has pain or an injury.

Ray said on Nov 1, 2013 9:51 PM

I first went to Ferhat out of desperation. My long standing Sciatica was hardly responding to painkillers, the physiotherapy arranged by my GP had little effect and work was getting more difficult. Ferhat diagnosed the problem then, with the aid of his computer, explained the reason for the pain and gave me some good advice. After several massages and following much of his words of wisdom (sorry, Ferhat, weight loss will not be easy) I rarely need painkillers and can now walk for a long time without difficulty. During the massage, we have good conversation which adds to the feeling of "wellbeing", Ferhat is truly a great practitioner of his skill.

William said on Sep 20, 2013 1:39 AM

Having now received more than a few massages at Knead Me, I can positively say that Ferhat is highly professional, skilled, experienced, and excellent at diagnosing precisely what type of massage one needs. After a massage at his hands, one is left relieved of many aches and pains, plus any mental stress.

Lamia said on Aug 20, 2013 4:06 PM

Ferhat is simply outstanding. I went to Ferhat after suffering from bad neck, shoulder and arm pain, and was previously wrongly diagnosed by both my GP and the osteopath. Ferhat diagnosed the problem correctly, fully explained it to me, and I was completely pain free within 4 sessions of massage treatment. Real Professional with exceptional talent. I will continue to go back to Ferhat for relaxing massage and also preventative treatment massage. Ferhat is really a master of Massage Therapy. All the best Ferhat.

Jeannie turner said on Jul 23, 2013 7:14 PM

I have suffered from acute back pain for many years,& have had treatments from various professionals, but at last I have found Ferhat whom I truly believe could make a difference! I found him to be both warm & friendly& extremely professional. Ferhat was also very knowledgable & explained everything thoroughly, showing me on his computer my problem areas. I had the 75 min Knead Me Massage which was incredibly relaxing! Truly blissful.I would highly recommend this massage. One doesn't even have to have a back problem! The following week I had the medical back & shoulder massage & I have now booked a course, as I have a lot of faith in Ferhat. I will comment again at the end of my treatments I would urge you to give Ferhat a chance I promise you won't regret it! Thank you Ferhat!

Tiffany said on Jun 3, 2013 0:12 AM

Ferhat was every bit as spectacular as I could have hoped for. Every last detail was praise-worthy, from the website to the facility to the massage itself. Truly top-notch, professional, and worthwhile massage therapy.

Rose said on May 7, 2013 9:13 PM

Ferhat has a masterful touch, with the combined ability to be strong and gentle, intuitive, knowledgeable, as well as compassionate.I have enjoyed a number of massage sessions with Ferhat and will continue to return for more.He is an exceptional talent and well worth the time it takes to discover it for yourself.

Natasha said on Mar 12, 2013 4:26 AM

I first visited Ferhat in desperation because I had been knocked off my bike and the impact had exacerbated a lower back problem that had been rumbling on for a year. Ferhat was impressively knowledgeable and very experienced and his massages are fantastically deep and firm. A course of massages with Ferhat and barely 3 months later my back problem is much reduced - so much so, I've not needed to return to the osteopath. Thank you Ferhat.

Karl said on Mar 4, 2013 2:42 AM

Ferhat is terrific! I have had massages all over the world, many different styles. He is tops. Very vigorous and very effective for taking care of my various ailments. Thanks to a bi-monthly massage, I am much more active than I could otherwise be. I've been having massages from him for nearly 5 years and hope to have another 5! Try him. You will not be sorry.

Margaret said on Feb 12, 2013 10:22 PM

Blissful! Ferhat is a wonderful masseur and I echo the comments below. I always look forward to my appointment and feel so good afterwards. I highly recommend him.

Bob S said on Jan 28, 2013 2:10 AM

My Son and daughter kindly paid for my first massage as a Birthday present, I had been struggling with shoulder and neck pain for many years due to stress and minor injury. Ferhat pinpointed the problem areas in no time, he concentrated on these areas during my first appointment with great success. I now visit every two weeks for a one hour appointment,I am grateful and very impressed,with his undoubted ability to keep me pain free and more mobile.

Hannah said on Jul 9, 2012 10:17 PM

I have been benefiting from 'Knead Me' massages for the last couple of years - Ferhat is knowledgeable and flexible, he will tailor the massage to suit the individual. I always feel energised yet relaxed afterwards and my skin is moisturised from the oils he uses. His premises on the Botley Road are comfortable and it is easy to book an appointment. Thankyou Ferhat!

Steven, Oxford said on Jul 1, 2012 8:07 PM

Ferhat, just game me the best massage I have ever had; he is a true master of his discipline! I will certainly be going back as a regular.

Linda said on Mar 3, 2011 8:55 PM

My name is Linda. I am used to different types of massage including a swedish, myofacial release, remedial and also thai. When I met Ferhat, he had mentioned to me that his technique is quite different, and also a mix of all the above .. and it was. I wasn't quite certain what to expect, and therefore I just let him to do his job. At the end, I was fully relaxed and pain free, and really enjoyed all of my 90mins session.I am quite particular about which Massage Therapist I go back to ..Ferhat is one of those therapists which I would certainly go back to. Thanks!

Caroline said on Feb 22, 2011 6:26 PM

Ferhat came to our house to do massages for a hen party. He was very professional and hard working. He started at 12.30pm and finished at 7.30pm! He got good reviews from all the hens and speaking for myself he gave a great massage and realy worked out all of my many knots! Thanks Ferhat!

I can highly recommend this Knead me massage service. I have been treated by various massage therapists and over the years for a long standing lower back problem. Ferhat has provided the best treatment that I have found – giving me relief from pain by deep tissue massage and being able to explain how the different muscles affect each other. Thank you.

James said on Feb 17, 2011 2:37 AM

I suffer from a bad back principally due to long hours hunched over a computer, stress and lots of travel, but I have found regular massage keeps this in check. When we moved to Oxford a year ago I was worried how long it would take to find a good masseur because it seems only 1 in 10 are ever any good so you end up wasting time and money in quest to find a good masseur. I found Ferhat through the web and he appeared to be experienced and the fact that he did massage for so many years was impressive. So I thought I’d give him a go…I wasn’t disappointed and struck gold. Ferhat gives a fantastic deep muscle massage finding every knot and tight muscle, going as deep as he can without bruising you so you don’t wake up sore the next day which a great skill, that few have. It is my pleasure to recommend Ferhat as long as I can keep my weekly slot!

Chris R - Oxford said on Nov 5, 2010 11:42 PM

I travel a lot on business and have suffered from chronic back pain in the past, well until I was referred by a friend to gie Ferhat a call. I now have a deep tissue as often as I can and can now confirm that not only is my back pain disappeared but I am now running again too, something I haven'y been able to do in over 3 years. I am one very happy client and can personally recommend Ferhat to all men that have back trouble, it's a very small price to pay for good health and wellbeing, everyone should give it a try and feel the rewards.

Sushila Dhall said on May 13, 2010 7:19 PM

I used to have continuous pain from muscle knots in my neck and shoulders, and other massages had failed to go deep enough gently and firmly enough to achieve any relief. I had regular headaches and stiff necks, and my shoulders and back hurt deeply all the time. With Ferhat I began to feel better gradually but perceptibly over the first 6 weeks, and now with regular 2-week massages I am pain-free for the first time in decades. Ferhat is an exceptional masseur; thorough, deep, strong and sensitive, with a personal touch that is safe and very effective.

John & Sue, Oxford said on Apr 7, 2010 8:07 PM

Definitely the best masseur in Oxford, we wish you all the best.

Chloe, Oxford Uni Student said on Mar 19, 2010 2:10 AM

Definitely the best massage I've ever ever had! Thanks Ferhat, I feel so much better, will call again soon. Cheers Chloe

Paul, London said on Feb 19, 2010 4:23 AM

Just wanted to say that I have had several massages from Ferhat and travel from London to Oxford to have them, he really is that good. Good to see you have updated the website, there's some really useful info on it, well done mate.
