Soft Tissue Therapy
Soft Tissue Therapy is so much more than a massage or manual therapy. Helping people in acute & persistent musculoskeletal pain, recovery from injury or surgery, supporting athletes in training - combining hands on massage techniques with the latest clinical evidence to treat pain and dysfunction.
Soft Tissue Therapy involves the assessment, treatment and management of muscles, tendons and ligaments, used to treat injuries, pain and dysfunction of the musculoskeletal system. A very hands-on treatment that usually combines deep tissue & sport massage; facilitated stretching and advanced techniques.
Some conditions are best helped with a combination of massage, manual therapy and rehabilitation (homework!) and may include stretches, strengthening, mobility exercises and balancing. Each person has different needs.
Advice on long term improvement through evidence based remedial exercise and can advise on nutrition to help in your recovery.
I use a variety of massage and manual therapy, advanced soft tissue methods, neuro muscular techniques (NMT), muscle energy techniques (MET), soft tissue release (STR), positional release technique (PRT), myofascial release techniques (MFR) and trigger point techniques.

Michael was recommended to me by a friend and finally after months of thinking about it, I finally went to see him.
In only 3 treatments he’s helped ease my back pain and I’m now totally off all medication.
He’s been a major help and I can’t thank him enough.
Thank you Michael for all your help !! So very grateful." Cary
