Soft tissue therapy is much more than a massage or manual therapy, combining hands on massage techniques with education and the latest clinical evidence to help put you in charge of your recovery. This involves a full assessment, treatment, and management plan that draws on a wide range of modalities to suit your particular needs, whatever they may be. You might have acute and persistent musculoskeletal pain, require help recovering from surgery, or be an athlete in need of support in training and preparation. My clinic is based in Dover in Kent with easy access from Deal, Walmer, Folkestone and Canterbury areas.
Each person has different needs, and I take a strictly person centred approach that looks at all elements of your condition to produce a plan that you enjoy and addresses your condition. Sometimes you may need to be referred to a GP, or have a combination of seeing another health care provider and myself. After the first session, we will have a clear idea of what specific kind of help you need.

“At the beginning of this year I got told I have permanent nerve damage in my lower back and that’s just the way life will be - loads of meds, that did nothing to ease the pain 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.”
