Mike is a highly qualified and experienced Sports Massage practitioner, who has been treating a variety of clients all over South London - from sports people with sporting injuries, to those who may simply overdo it at the gym or want to get ready for (or recover from!) sporting events such as fun runs or marathons, to those who suffer difficulties with pain and movement due to degenerative physical conditions or illnesses, or everyday injuries such as ankle sprains or RSI. Sports massage techniques can provide effective relief to everyone!

In addition to Sports Massage, Mike is an advanced Myofascial Release specialist, in which he helps to release restrictions in fascia (connective tissue) to help resolve postural dysfunction and associated issues, and long term chronic aches and pains including sciatica, fibromyalgia. Mike?s signature treatment is called Myofascial Bodywork, in which he combines Myofascial Release techniques and mobilisations with the best of advanced Sports Massage, to rebalance and realign patients.

Mike also offers Thai Yoga Massage, having trained with senior Sunshine Network teacher Ralf Marzen. Thai Yoga Massage is a wonderfully relaxing, ‘stretchtastic’ and therapeutic form of traditional Thai massage, where you remain fully clothed while you are taken through a series of stretches and positions. Lots of soothing acupressure is also applied, all designed to help loosen up tightness in muscles and joints, release fascial restrictions, while also stimulating the circulation of blood, lymph and energy, and promoting a wonderful sense of healing and relaxation. Mike is also a qualified Reflexologist who fuses traditional Reflexology techniques with Thai Yoga stretches and Myofascial release techniques to the feet and ankles, all of which provides a thoroughly relaxing and stimulating Reflexology treatment, that also enhancing flexibility and mobility and helps to restore balance to the structure and soft tissues of the feet.
