Lovely greetings Roberto, How are you doing since Roma? Thank you very much for your
help there, I went on to run a little faster time in Athens, but great consistency,
and I am healthy and feel great. After you worked on my shoulders before the race,
I felt rather unusually flexible and loose in my upper body/shoulders, that might
explain why I went for a stroll in the park for the first half of the race, before
realizing that I was running so relaxed with little aggressiveness. Thank you Take
care and Peace and love

Hi Roberto, thank you so much for all your help and hard work on my legs. I was so
happy to finish the New York City Marathon today. My legs felt as fresh afterwards
as at the start of the marathon - it was amazing! I felt so good after the marathon
and recovered very quickly. Roberto is a top class sports masseur, I can strongly
recommend him and I always recommend his services to all my coaches.
Thanks for your help in Rieti, I hope to return to Rieti next year.

My hip has freed up a lot from you realigning my hips & clicking me back into shape
- no long really pinching. Thanks loads, as your technique works for me.
See you Monday & thanks again for the regular maintenance allowing me to continue
pumping out the miles.
Thank you that you took so much care of me. I have never had such a great massage.
My hamstrings are nearly OK, but my thighs are damaged.
I cannot walk. I have to go down stairs backwards.
I hope to see you sometime again!
Thanks for your help,
After 20 hours of airplanes and airports, my Hamstrings were very tight. Even two
days before the Rome marathon, I experienced cramping in my hamstring while stretching.
Thanks to your massage, stretching and working on the pressure points, I was able
to feel lose and pain-free for the race! I was worried about my condition until
you got me straightened out. On race day, I was able to PR on the cobblestones of
Rome, running 2:18:13. This is 6 years after PR in my debut at the age of 27. Now,
at the age of 33, you have helped me to realize the importance of muscle strength,
balance and flexibility. Thanks again.
Roberto has been giving me regular sports massage for a number of years now and for
an ageing triathlete like me, it is a total life-saver. The combination of deep massage
and stretching is not always comfortable, but it IS effective for loosening up tight
muscles. Roberto is good at identifying potential problem areas by feel and working
on them before they can become niggles or injuries. I strongly recommend his services.
testimonial to add to Serpie site as follows: every visit to Roberto either
helps sort out legs back and neck after a long trail race, or diminish niggles before
a run. if not competing, a monthly hour long check up is great for a regular mot....
Roberto knows instinctively where to work on most and why -hence all pain seems justified!

Thanks for keeping me running over the years, which has helped me push for my personal
bests, despite my constant efforts to reduce my legs rubble with strains and aches.
Roberto has performed the miracle that I always hoped physios could do. He has made
me faster without much work from me. (Barring a bit of a stretch now and again).
My legs feel free and my stride length has increased which is obviously leading to
He doesn't hold back; the first session for most is probably more pain than you would
care to experience but it all goes after a session or three. (The lumps that I thought
were natural have disappeared). I stand to gain nothing from telling you this other
than knowing that
I might have helped out another fellow athlete He may not be able to perform the
same miracle on others, as i am fairly inflexible - but it may be worth a shout.
Keep it Spicy,
Finished NYC Marathon in 2hrs 42', 155th overall. No knee/ankle pain during race
even though hurting the knee on stairs on Friday. Just hit the wall badly at mile
17. A bit sore today, but not too bad.
And a huge thank you for all your help (and torture) to get me to the start line.
It is much appreciated!!!
Roberto is a hugely experienced sports masseur as his client list demonstrates, but
his success is not just his technical skills but his ability to engage with his clients
- Roberto takes an active interest in your short-term goals, overall ambitions, ensures
he understands your work demands and lifestyle, and is able to work with you on your
well being so that you are in the best shape possible. Roberto has kept us up & running.
We've had a few injuries along the way & he totally understands that we want to keep
running & cycling long distances if at all possible - he will however still recommend
rest when it's needed. It's not the most relaxing massage you'll ever have, but you
& your muscles will definitely feel better afterwards! Roberto is an invaluable
part of your training regime
