Toby is a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) who was born in Hong Kong and educated and trained in Canada. After setting out to study medicine, he soon realised that the body frequently responds more effectively to a holistic approach.
Since completing his training as a Massage Therapist, Toby has worked closely with physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, naturopathic doctors, massage therapists and personal trainers to develop techniques that help clients recover from injury, release stress, and enhance performance.
In his quest to help clients achieve optimal health conditions, Toby performs a careful assessment based on the client’s symptoms. This assessment takes the form not only of questions concerning what aggravates the condition and what alleviates it, but also an examination of the client’s gait and posture. Afterwards, Toby provides massage treatment, and then coaches the client in remedial exercises that can act as a home-care routine. This ensures that maximum benefit is obtained from the session.
Besides Therapeutic and Sports Massage, Toby is also qualified in Pregnancy Massage. Pregnancy frequently causes neck and shoulder pain, lower back pain, swelling, and tired legs. Toby takes care to position these clients carefully, so they feel safe, comfortable and relaxed during the treatment. Pregnancy Massage is of great benefit because it increases blood circulation, improves lymphatic flow and reduces muscle tension.
Toby has been offering pregnancy massages since 2016 and has experience working with expectant mothers at all levels of their pregnancy. Pregnant women have often received uncertain responses from the health community regarding the safety and purpose of massage during pregnancy, however, modern investigation and research is proving that prenatal massage therapy can be a very instrumental component in women’s prenatal care and should be given careful consideration.
Toby is fluent in three languages: English, Cantonese and Mandarin.

Toby has magic hands! My neck and shoulders were very tight, and my arms were numb from working out. After his treatments, I could move my neck, and I did not feel numb anymore. It’s amazing!Jocelyn S.Canada
Toby is professional. I went to see him for massage therapy for my lower back and TMJ. After the first treatment, he asked his colleague, a Chiropractor, to provide a complimentary assessment for the TMJ. Toby suggested that chiropractic treatment could provide better results for the TMJ problem. With both of their help, my TMJ problem is much better now.Sonia K.Canada
Excellent sports massage to keep my body aligned and in good shape. Toby knows how to adapt to make sure you get the best out of the time spent in sports therapy. He will also help guide you to rebalance any areas that need extra attention.Andrea B.Hong Kong
Toby is very friendly. He helps me relax from a long day of work and stress. I really enjoy chatting with him during the treatments.Joyce S.G.Canada
Toby is very professional and knows what he is doing. He knows how much pressure is needed for different spots/muscles and works with my breathing. My first session today with him was very enjoyable and therapeutic. I will definitely go back to him.HJ. GHong Kong
Since I came to Toby for a massage I have noticed a considerable improvement in my neck. I work a lot at my computer and often have headaches, but after the massage, and doing some simple exercises that Toby showed me, I feel so much better.Diana RHong Kong
Toby diagnosed my posture and assessed my body before he started the massage to ensure he focused on my areas of concern. He explained to me the treatment and was professional. He helped me relieve muscle tension and stiffness. Overall, Toby's treatment was helpful and relaxing.Kathryn HHong Kong
I completed my first full marathon a few days before. My legs and upper back were stiff with muscle pain. Actually my upper back is a long time issue due to my daily office work. I am recommended to have a treatment with Toby after the race. Toby is so good as he can really customize what customer’s need and massage my deeper muscle very well. During the session, he always gives me alternative in order to make sure I am enjoying the session. The day after I actually feel more pain but it is normal as Toby explained to me on that day, however, I can quickly recover a few days after the treatment. Thanks a lot Toby!Eunice K.Hong Kong
Toby gave a very good impression from the moment we met in the reception up until the end of the session. He was always polite, respectful and knows his stuff! The massage session was super relaxing, and I didn't realise how much I had needed a proper massage which focuses on my stiff shoulders and lower back. Will definitely recommend Toby for regular massage sessions to maintain a well-balanced mind and being.A. PangHong Kong
Recently as part of the Body Group's holistic approach of managing the stiff muscles of my back and neck I had the opportunity to experience Toby’s skill and expertise as a Sports masseur. Toby is very professional and took the time to explain the benefits of each technique he employed.NPHong Kong
He applied just the right amount of pressure to release tight muscles and I actually feel asleep for short time as I became more relaxed. The best gauge of how beneficial a massage session has been is how you feel the next day. I was very pleased how flexible and relaxed my muscles felt the next day. I have no hesitation in recommending Toby as a Sports Masseur.
I Had a wonderful session with Toby. Very good hands, felt very relaxed and comfortable. The massage actually made me play better tennis that night, with the more relaxed and stretched muscles.Jamie LeeHong Kong
