Michael O'Neill MGHT, MISRM
I am a Soft Tissue Therapist/Sports & Remedial Massage and Reflexologist (MGHT, MISRM) based in Dover Kent where I practice from my own clinic near Dover town centre.
I help people who have developed pain or dysfunction in their muscles through soft tissue therapy, whether through postural related problems or a sports or occupational injuries, working at my clinic in Dover.
Over the years I have learned more about how remedial massage and soft tissue therapy can help with all kinds of musculoskeletal problems, and this led me to train as a massage therapist myself, gaining a Level 5 BTEC Professional Diploma in Soft Tissue Therapy/Clinical Sport and Remedial Massage – the highest available qualifications in the field, with the Oxford School of Sports Massage.
After many years of working in a stressful and physically demanding job I decided to look into other ways to manage my stress and the health issues that resulted and was advised to try reflexology eventually leading me to gain my Diploma in Reflexology and Anatomy and Physiology and later massage where I gained diplomas in Holistic Massage and Deep Tissue and Sports Massage and later trained as a Soft Tissue Therapist and continue to develop my knowledge and skills.
After studying many different approaches and forms of the treatments I offer I can tailor each session to your needs, I also advise on remedial exercise and stretches to aid recovery.

My approach to soft tissue therapy/remedial massage
I believe it’s important to be easy to talk to and to be a good listener.
If you come to me for treatment we will start by taking a history of your symptoms to get to the bottom of your problem. This initial consultation usually lasts 75 minutes so I can take the time to get to know both, you and your injury.
Then we will set out a treatment programme for you, along with goals for improvement.
I use a variety of deep tissue massage and advanced soft tissue methods, neuro muscular massage techniques (NMT), muscle energy techniques (MET), soft tissue release (STR), positional release technique (PRT), myofascial release techniques and trigger point techniques.
I also offer advice on long term improvement through remedial exercise and can advise on nutrition to help in your recovery.
I am a registered member of The Guild Of Holistic Therapists and ISRM (The Institute for Soft Tissue Therapists) and fully insured.
To satisfy the code of ethics and standards of the above association I am committed to continuing professional development.
