Michael Jarvis

Michael massage therapist in Brighton

After working and managing teams in the Fast Moving Consumer Goods Industry, I decided to leave and retrain as a massage therapist. I trained at the London School of Sports Massage (LSSM) and qualified as an ISRM Certified clinical sport and remedial massage therapist in 2016. I have since passed professional development courses and diplomas in Forearm & Deep Tissue Massage, Kinesio Taping and Hot Stone massage.

It was through triathlon, running, playing golf, and surprisingly through working in offices over the last 20 years (aching neck, back, wrists) that I became fascinated in massage not only as a means to recover from injury, but also to prevent it. Being so active and hating being injured, I would have massage treatments to help recover from those aches and niggles, and I soon realised the treatments also helped prevent those aches and niggles. I also discovered the benefits of massage for my mental and emotional well-being. Simply put, I had discovered the full range of benefits that Remedial Soft Tissue Therapy can offer and my passion for massage as a therapy was born. I have since become fascinated by the musculoskeletal system, and how the various massage techniques, plus improvements to a person’s posture and strength, can help relieve people from their chronic pain and stiffness.

Each of my treatments are tailored to the needs and goals of the individual, whether it be to relieve everyday postural aches and pains, prepare for and/or recover from surgery, manage both pre and post event training, or to simply zone out for an hour or more. They include assessment, treatment, and if needed, rehabilitation advice.

I am a full member of the Institute of Sport and Remedial Massage (ISRM) and have professional indemnity insurance and first aid training.
