sports massage - not only for athletes...

Sports massage deals with the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of the soft tissues of the body and has many benefits.

But our sports massage is not only for sporty people and sports injuries, but is very much used as a specific treatment of the muscles and soft tissues of the body for anybody! But for sports people a good sports masseur is invaluable to help their sports injuries and performance.

Michael Bartley BSc(Hons), LSSM (Dip), Sports massage therapist:

Michael qualified through the reputable London School of Sports Massage and has been covering at both clinics over the past 7 years. More recently he has undertaken a weekly Tuesday slot at the Kings Cross clinic and Fridays at the Old Street clinic.
Michael has a degree in Sports Science & Nutrition and is a very keen runner, cyclist and fitness guru, with over 20 years of experience in the fitness industry. He will be more than happy to offer his expert training and fitness advice, while treating your tired and aching muscles.
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”.

Stephanie used to be a track athlete and competed at two Olympic Games (1992 and 1996), and World Championships representing Team GB and is still in the UK's Top 20 all time of fastest women over 60 and 100 metres. She has won both silver and bronze medals at the Commonwealth Games.
