Michael Jarvis

Michael massage therapist in Brighton

After working and managing teams in the Fast Moving Consumer Goods Industry for many years, mainly in the area of Supply Chain, 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 completed a number of professional development courses, including Hot & Cold Stone massage, and Kinesiology Taping.

It was through running, playing golf, triathlon, and surprisingly through working in offices over the last 20 years (aching neck, back, wrists) that I became interested 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 with those aches and niggles. What I hadn’t bargained for was discovering the ‘side-effect’ benefits of injury prevention, along with the resulting TLC it induces for my mental and emotional well-being. Simply, I had discovered the full range of benefits that Remedial Soft Tissue Therapy can offer. My passion for massage as a therapy was born, and I have since become fascinated by the musculoskeletal system and all its intricacies. I now run barefoot as a result.

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.
