"Very nice massage organised through our accommodation, with my wife being pregnant and not being able to  lie  on her front, it was easy for them to adapt to massage her  on her side. Would get another massage from them when we are back in Whangaparaoa"

"Highly recommend this company. I have been having trouble with sleeping for a while and was recommended by 2 lovely ladies on the hibiscus coast page. Chris is definitely a miracle working. I managed to sleep well through the night and my back and neck feel so much better than ever before. A massive thank you to you Chris for doing an amazing job! Will definitely be coming back here "

" Just wanted to say thanks you to Chris and recommend him on here! After struggling with shoulder/lower back pain for a while now, i had the best sleep in months and was able to sleep on my back without pain. Will definitely be back for regular visits;"

Stacey, Manly, 5 out of 5    28/3/2018

" After struggling with back pain due to an injury for a year and a half I went to Chris and after my massage was the first night I slept through. He was very informative of the muscle groups and nerves causing the pain and gave me stretches to reduce the pain between seeing him and my physio. I highly recommend Chris and love his rewards card he offers! My next hour long massage is free..."

"..I have been going to Chris for over 9 months now for relief of pain and to enable a range of movement with my right arm and shoulder after an operation on a torn tendon. His massage has provided me with the best relief and recovery of normal movement. I have tried 3 other local people for massages but the massage Chris gives me is by far the best received. He is good as well at explaining what he is going to do and why. He is easy to chat to and flexible about appointments. I thoroughly recommend him.  "

"..Having Fibromyalgia , I have been on a journey from strong medication to all sorts of diffent treatments, with no luck. I have tried many different people over the years for massages . I could not understand that it did not make me feel better. Then Chris came to my rescue, he has Magic hands. He has heaps of knowledge on my condition, I walk out that door with a big smile, my body is responding to his treatment, I am very grateful , thank you  Adeline, Gulf Harbour, April 2015 10 out of 10.

"....I have tried many different people over the years for massages and I must say Chris does the best job! He seems to have a lot of knowledge about the body and different types of treatments and personalises the massage to what I need for each session. Nice to go knowing its going to help with the aches and pains, and not just a general template massage, I also enjoy the relaxation part too. Great with his hands so I highly recommend, I will continue using him as often as I can " Aimee October 2014, 10 out of 10

".... I saw Chris a couple of weeks ago and was really impressed with his extensive knowledge of massage and the body. I run quite a bit and he knew exactly which muscles needed attention and discussed what he was doing and why. I felt amazing afterwards and the next day I could feel the built-up tension was relieved from my shoulders and legs. I recently moved to the Coast and will definitely be seeing Chris regularly. Definitely one of the best massages I've had.  10 out of 10.

"....I had a massage with Chris Stewart from Portofino Massage in Manly (next to the Chemist) and it was REALLY good. i have a lot of issues with my right shoulder and i cant believe how much looser it now feels. .. i would definitely recommend them - friendly, professional and your muscles will thank you for it,  Kelly from Stanmore Bay, via the Portofino Facebook page. July 2014


 "....I've been using Chris for Sports Massage since late 2012. I compete as a professional Cyclist, run a busy coaching business and study so my life is hectic and finding time to actively 'recover' from racing and training can be difficult. I've found Chris to be professional, efficient easy going and above all a great massage therapist. I leave Portofino Massage feeling relaxed with my aches and pains soothed out and ready to get on the bike again. I have no hesitation in recommending Chris to any sports person looking for that extra edge. "

"...I saw Chris for a series of massages throughout my pregnancy to work on areas of tightness through my upper back and my hips. Being a health professional myself, I'm picky with handling techniques but I could never fault Chris. And I loved that he finished the sessions with a relaxing head massage! I would highly recommend Chris for massage to work on specific areas or just for relaxation!"  Emma, Physiotherapist April 2013 


"....I have had four massages by Chris at Portofino Massage and was thoroughly impressed with the whole experience, Chris was completely professional with good knowledge regarding the massage. Although my visits were for recreational massage,  Chris happily worked on a few problematic areas on my body precisely and effectively. I plan a monthly massage will become a regular part of my health plan. To that effect,  I would thoroughly recommend Portofino Massage to all"       Blair , Whangaparaoa Rd, March 2013.


"....I have been having massages with Chris over the past 6 months and find Chris takes the time to listen, asks questions and the massage is always what suits me on the particular session.  He always requests feedback which I found important.  I have felt comfortable and rejuvenated after a great massage that is always both therapeutic and relaxing..."

 Faye of  Whangaparaoa March 2013


"....I went to see Chris after an ACC Shoulder injury and Chris certainly helped relieve my pain and also was very thorough and interested in my problem.  I found him very easy to talk to and he explained to me how my muscles were working.  At times I required deep-tissue massage and other times more a relaxing massage.  I can thoroughly recommend Chris."
