Hi! I'm Andy, Your Massage Therapist

Andy Milana Massage Therapist

Hello there, thank you for visiting my website, my name is Andy. I am the owner and massage therapist at Wellness Massage Lexden. Originally from Italy, I moved to the United Kingdom in 2006 and became a British citizen in 2019.

I am a fully qualified Massage Therapist in Swedish Massage and other massage techniques. My main focus is to provide my clients with Relaxation Massage, and Remedial Massage, these are aimed at alleviating the aches and pains of your busy and stressful lives.

I do believe that having a massage isn’t just a luxury one off treat to have once in a while, everyone should have regular massages since it is medically proven that having a massage not only reduces muscle tension, improves circulation, stimulates the lymphatic system, reduces stress, improves relaxation, increases joint mobility and flexibility, but also improves skin tone, speeds up recovery from soft tissue injuries, leads to heightened mental alertness and reduces anxiety and depression.

I'm a Member of the Major Holistic Associations

I am a member of the following organisations which ensure the highest standards in massage training: the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT), the ThinkTree Hub, the Standards Authority for Touch in Cancer Care (SATCC) and I am a Qualified Amethyst Trust Specialist Oncology Massage Practitioner.

Wellness Massage LexdenExcellentWellness Massage Lexden5.0 Based on 146 reviews fromSee all reviews review us onMarie L.Marie L. ★★★★★ 2 visits in 5 days and an invaluable experience for both. Andy has a very tranquil, professional and relaxing studio, paying attention to every detail. He is probably the best deep tissue masseuse I have ever experienced (and I have experienced a few!) with exceptionally deep pressure in all the right places but regulary checking if I am comfortable, to hot, pressure ok etc. Fully recommended and I will be back after my week away.Caryn M.Caryn M. ★★★★★ Today I had an amazing 30 minute back massage at Wellness Massage Lexdon! It was my second time there and I will definitely be returning.Andy is very professional and knowledgeable. The setting is relaxing, clean and every effort has been made to create the best experience for the client.I highly recommend Wellness Massage Lexdon to all!Mich “Chelle” AMich “Chelle” A ★★★★★ I had a Brazilian Tummy Tuck and ab muscle repair 7 weeks ago. My Surgeon suggested that l start lymphatic massages at 6 weeks. I looked for someone who would do this for me locally and came across Andy s reviews as l searched. I was very impressed by all the reviews l read so l decided to book to see him.Andy came out to welcome and greet me with a very friendly smile. It was easy to find the place because he has a post with his logo outside so l saw it as l drive towards the place.I walked into his therapy room and felt at ease straight away. It smelt fresh and everything looks clean, white towels and a high tech massage bed. This l was very happy with as l needed lay with elevated legs.Andy is extremely professional, he explained what he was going to do and how it would benefit me also checked all my medical history.He has great technique with his towels which preserves dignity for clients as at no point does he leave you uncovered also he constantly checks whether you are warm enough.The lymphatic massage was very gentle and relaxing, l actually felt l could sleep also the music was right for relaxation.I was swelled up and bumpy from liposuction and still struggling to straighten up as my core was very tight from the tummy tuck but when Andy had finished l was feeling much better and walking a bit straighter.I went home and constantly needed to wee. I wake up the next day feeling amazing!!! The swelling went down sooo much and the tightness was much better!!! I have had a second massage and l have booked 6 more as he is that GOOD!!!! I would recommend him to anyone!!Sam N.Sam N. ★★★★★ My first visit and I’ll definitely be returning.

Andy put me at ease fro the start, he listened carefully to whet my aches and pains are, (as a carer, I have loads) Andy kept checking throughout if the pressure was OK, and paid particular attention to my shoulder which has been very painful for the last couple of weeks. An hour later, I have more movement than I had before. Andy explained clearly where the pro led was, and gave knowledgeable advice on how I could treat this at home.
A visit to Andy is HIGHLY recommended.
Terri H.Terri H. ★★★★★ Been visiting Andy weekly for a few month's and always leave feeling relaxed and calm. Andy is very professional with a smart clean studio that puts you at ease as soon as you step through the door.

Andy was so professional throughout, putting me at ease!

Mary S.Mary S. ★★★★★ I had an excellent massage from Andy today at an affordable price. Lots of tension in my neck area which required pressure and feels a lot easier today. Andy was able to accommodate me on the same day I rang which I appreciated. A service I shall use again.Kirsty G.Kirsty G. ★★★★★ I booked a massage after finding it was my local place on Google and could not be more happy that I did.

Andy was polite, respectful and put me at complete ease with his friendly personality. The annex at the back of his house is private and kitted out like a professional salon. He constantly checked in with me to make sure the temperature/music/pressure was right and explained everything fully, giving recommendations of things to try to help my posture.

I’ve left feeling totally blissed out and back pain gone.

Thanks Andy, I’ll definitely be back soon ☺️
