Grant of Zen Arcade Massage has been my sports massage therapist for around 3 years. As a massage therapist myself for 15 years, and having a lot of muscular skeletal problems, I have found Grant to be one of the best therapists for technique and professionalism. I am definitely happy to give Grant a 5-star rating.


Vicki, July 2021

Was the best I have had. Very knowledgeable and knew how to loosen some tight muscles. Totally recommend Grant and I will be back.

“I booked a massage to sort out the aftermath of a knee injury. Grant was very professional and got into all the tight spots. I came out walking much more freely so was very happy thanks!

Tina, June 2021

"The massage was perfect. I had many back issues and Grant managed to solve most of them! He used the right pressure and when he finished I felt immediately better. I will go back everythime I'm in Rotorua!"

Simone, May 2021

"Had a 1-and-a-half-hour sports massage, Grant really targets those sore areas and works on releasing the knots and tightness. Friendly and good prices for a sports massage."

Melissa, Sep 2020

"Grant is what I’ve always wanted in a massage therapist. He is professional – always taking an ethical holistic approach to massage and wellness. He is warm and caring and treats you with respect. I remain impressed with his excellence. When I get off the table, I know one thing, there will not be a single major muscle group that hasn’t been worked on. Highly recommend it. Thank you, Grant. See you again soon."

Payal, May 2020

"I just had a 1 hour sports massage with Grant. It was absolutely incredible. My body feels amazing. Thanks Grant, you're a legend. See you in a few weeks for round 2."

Amanda, Feb 2020

"I have had many, many massages over the years. Grant has just given me the best. He has very strong hands, applies pressure points to release the tight fascia and is very knowledgeable about what the body needs... I relaxed and was not achy the next day. Please try Grant, your soul will thank you. I would go every week if I lived closer. 10/10"

Having spent the last quarter of a century travelling the world I am now back in New Zealand following my dream career. I returned a few years ago from the chilly Northern realms of Iceland and Finland where I got to live, work and enjoy a multitude of cultural influences including watching the sun never set during the bright nights of summer, sliding on the ice in the long dark winter months, taking in the captivating Northern Lights, hiking through moose-filled forests, swimming in scenic forest lakes and sweating away my troubles in traditional Finnish saunas. There is nothing like living in foreign lands to fill your soul with wonder and broaden your mind and spiritual horizons.

I have been running my massage clinic in Rotorua for the last two and a half years now and have treated a couple of hundred clients in that time from all walks of life and with all sorts of maladies. I have cyclists, doctors, runners, physios, builders, farmers, sports scientists, truck drivers, teachers, retirees, cancer patients, rugby coaches and naturopaths visit me. I love the diversity of the job and the myriad of challenges it brings. Massage is something that I am very passionate about and something that I consider to be a vital part of our lives.
