Michael qualified as a Sports Massage Therapist in January 2007. To consolidate his qualification he worked alongside established Physiotherapists for 2 years at Shelford Rugby Club. This allowed him to put into practice many techniques and learn invaluable skills.
In the years following on from qualifying he has continued to gain experience from treating a wide range of clients from those who are sedentary and struggle with aches and pains that are brought on by everyday issues and those that train at the other end of the spectrum and compete in Ironman triathlons.
Working also as a Personal Trainer he understands the functional benefits of deep tissue massage, and appreciates the importance of creating the balance between training and recovery to optimise performance.
Hobbies and Interest:
In my spare time I enjoy training and taking part in sport, particularly competing in triathlons.
My highest sporting achievements to date has been representing Great Britain for my age group at the 2013 European Championships for the sprint triathlon and in the same year the World Championships for the sprint aquathlon.
