Michael uses a combination of deep tissue massage, soft tissue release (STR), neuromuscular technique (NMT), friction, mobilisation and more recently medical acupuncture to help the tissue back to full function. He prides himself on using minimum pressure and effort with maximum results. A painful massage does not guarantee the best results.
Over the years Michael has acquired a diverse range of clients, including: runners, tri-athletes, semi-pro footballers, office workers, military personnel, yoga practitioners and contortionists (to name a few).
Testimonials:
"I am a keen runner and have suffered with long-term niggles from a slightly misaligned pelvis which can cause tightness in my hamstring and piriformis.  Whilst training for the London Marathon and post-marathon I visited Michael on a number of occasions for in-depth sports massage on my legs and piriformis.  Michael was the consummate professional and expertly and quickly was able to diagnose and apply the most appropriate level and type of massage using his extensive knowledge.  His skilful massage most definitely improved my training, performance and post race recovery.  I would recommend his services to all sports personnel whether they be novices or highly active" 

“After suffering for several weeks with a hip problem, which was affecting my running training, I decided to book an appointment with Michael. Some of the treatment was uncomfortable, at the time, however after only one session he managed to locate and treat the problem area. He prescribed some stretches for me to do at home and within a week I was back to my regular running regime”.
